Two Men Sentenced For Distributing Cocaine
A Lafayette man and a Houston man were sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Foote for conspiracy with intent to distribute and distribution of cocaine.
Tyrone James Thibeaux of Lafayette was sentenced to serve 135 months in prison, while German Rodriguez received a 100 month sentence. Both will serve five years of supervised release.
Both men, along with three other co-defendants, were indicted in April of 2012 for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine between August 2008 and April 2011.
Rodriguez, according to plea records, supplied Thibeaux and the other defendants with multi-kilogran quantities of cocaine from Houston into a large scale Lafayette drug distribution organization. Thibeaux pleaded guilty in the case back in December.
