Drug trafficker sentenced to 17 years in a Lubbock court

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A member of the Almighty Latin King Nation is sentenced to 210 months in prison.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings sentenced 31-year-old John Guzman of Big Spring to more than 17-years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

According to court documents, Guzman admitted he was a member of a conspiracy that included the leader of the Latin King Gang, Jose Nava.

Guzman admitted he and the other participants agreed to distribute cocaine and marijuana across the South Plains.

To date, 17 co-defendants have pleaded guilty and have been sentenced for their roles in the conspiracy.

Nava and James Cole were also found guilty for a drive-by shooting in Big Spring in 2008, where six people were shot with an AK-47.

Parts of the gun were later found near Crosbyton in White River Lake.
