99 years for 10 kilos

Lauro Grimaldo Rincon was sentenced to 99 years in prison on Monday March 31, 2014 in the 9th District Court for a February 2013 arrest on Possession charges.

On February 22, 2013, officers from HPD, Montgomery County Sheriff’s, and the Drug Enforcement Administration negotiated the delivery of ten kilos of cocaine at the Los Cucos restaurant in Kingwood. At the same time miles away, a van was stopped by Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies en route to the delivery site and ten kilos of cocaine was found to be inside a black duffle bag in the rear passenger compartment. Rincon and four co-defendants were then taken into custody.

Rincon was a habitual felony offender, based on more than __6__ prior felony convictions and faced a punishment range of 25 years to life in prison. Assistant District Attorneys Rob Freyer and Adam McLane presented the case to a Montgomery County Jury, who returned a sentence of 99 years within hours of the close of evidence in the case. During the punishment phase, Freyer and McLane put on evidence that the defendant received 5 years in prison for his involvement in an attempted murder in 1980, he received 120 months in Federal Prison in 1992 for his involvement in an large scale marijuana conspiracy in the Western District of Texas, as well as a trip to prison in Ohio for a 2003 arrest by the Ohio Highway Patrol who found the defendant in possession of 95 pounds of marijuana after being stopped for driving while intoxicated in Toledo, Ohio.

We would like to commend the hard and tenacious work of Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Joel Saldana, Houston Police officer Jose Benavides, and Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Mike Landrum, Investigator Mandy Curry, and Deputy Ken Wakefield, who were able to remove ten kilograms of cocaine with a street value of over $350,000 from our streets. We also owe a debt of gratitude to Troopers Tim Coll and Corey Diehl of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, who were willing to travel to great lengths to ensure that the jury knew as much about this defendant’s criminal history to justify them handing down such a stiff sentence. This case was a result of a team effort and the hard work of al l the officers here, should be commended. We look forward to working with all of them in the future.

    Now, since we have to support them for the rest of our and their lives, take them out on a w o r k detail or work in prison and, at least, make them halfway support their rotten selves for the rest of their lives. Let’s don’t be chumps and be forced to support scum like this. They aren’t new criminals/abusers and have caused much damage for their own benefit and the detriment of others.
