Convicted Slaton drug dealer faces up to two life sentences

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Slaton man admits he's a drug dealer and faces, not one but, two life sentences in prison for selling Methamphetamines and guns.  Jasper Martinez, 33, pleaded guilty in Lubbock federal court last week to three felonies. 

The first two could keep behind bars for life.  The absolute minimum Martinez could face is 10 years in federal prison.  He'll be sentenced at a later date. 

Court records say that in June of 2009 the Drug Enforcement Administration used a confidential source to buy a semi-automatic rifle and a high power 9 mm semi-automatic pistol from Martinez in far Northwest Lubbock.  Court records say on a subsequent date the same confidential source bought $3,000 worth of methamphetamine from Martinez.
