One Man Pleads Guilty, Another Sentenced, in Methamphetamine-Trafficking Conspiracy
NEW ORLEANS – U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that EULALIO TORRES-CADENAS, age 41, of Houston, Texas, pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of conspiring to traffic 500 grams or more of a mixture containing methamphetamine in the Eastern District of Louisiana.
TORRES-CADENAS faces a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in prison, a maximum life sentence, a fine of up to $10,000,000 and at least five years of supervised release. U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan set sentencing for TORRES-CADENAS on January 23, 2019.
Also yesterday, Judge Morgan sentenced codefendant PETER GIANDALONE, age 43, of New Orleans, to 48 months imprisonment and 5 years supervised release. GIANDALONE had previously pled guilty to conspiring to traffic 500 grams or more of a mixture containing methamphetamine.
TORRES-CADENAS and GIANDALONE are two of the eleven defendants charged in a 23-count federal indictment. Specifically, the indictment alleges that TORRES-CADENAS and GIANDALONE conspired to sell large quantities of methamphetamine with codefendants Stefen Daigle, Julien Polk, Paul Melancon, Jeffrey Clines, James Hatch, Angel Renee Vidaure, Delio Alfredo Lopez-Lopez, Lindsey Lopez, and Jacob Higginbotham.
The indictment also alleges a number of individual acts of distributing and possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine, as well as firearm offenses for codefendants Hatch, Vidaure, and Lopez-Lopez. Law enforcement developed evidence against this group of defendants using controlled purchases of methamphetamine, traffic stops and seizures, consensually recorded text messages as well as phone calls, search warrants, cooperator information, and self-incriminating statements.
U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the work of the United States Postal Inspection Service, Louisiana State Police, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Highway Patrol, Montgomery County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, AMTRAK Police, and the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Brandon S. Long is in charge of the prosecution.
