Routine traffic stop leads to hefty prison sentence

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A routine traffic in Lubbock could turn into life in prison for Gean Christopher Washington.  Back in August a DPS Trooper stopped Washington at the Intersection of MLK and Highway 84.  The Trooper saw what he suspected was evidence of marijuana. 

Court records say Washington also had cocaine and a semi-automatic weapon in the vehicle.  Washington pleaded guilty last week and will be sentenced at a later date to at least 10 years and possibly as much as life in prison.
