LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man pleads guilty on Methamphetamine-related charges. Rene Benavides, 38, admits to Distribution and Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. Court records say in April of 2009, Benavides sold $1,600 worth of methamphetamine to a confidential source who was working for the Drug Enforcement Administration. Benavides will be sentenced at a later date to no more than 20 years in prison.
In an unrelated case, a Lubbock County woman admits she sold Methamphetamine to a confidential source working for the DEA. Monica Alicia Garcia pleaded guilty last week to Distribution and Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. She'll be sentenced at a later date to at least 5 years, but not more than 40 years in prison.
A Lubbock halfway house worker will have to serve two-and-a-half years in prison. Last year Mose Lewis admitted to making a false statement to federal investigators. Court records say Lewis had oral sex with a halfway house resident at Dismas Charities. Those same court records say when confronted about it, that's when he lied. Lewis was sentenced on Friday.
