Louisiana man gets 20 years for possessing cocaine worth $25,000

A Rockwall County jury sentenced a Louisiana man to twenty years in prison Feb. 7 for possession of cocaine with a street value of $25,000.

According to Rockwall Co. Assistant District Attorney Suzanne Fichtel, lead prosecutor in the case, Roy Duval Green, 23, was found guilty on the first-degree felony charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance, after he was caught driving down I-30 with 111.39 grams of cocaine in a rental car.

Rockwall County Criminal District Attorney Kenda Culpepper, who noted that the trial was delayed for several days because of the winter storms, said, “We appreciate the efforts of the jury over the last week and are pleased that they sent Mr. Green to prison for a lengthy sentence.”

Green had pled “Not Guilty” in the case, which was heard before 382nd District Court Judge Brett Hall.
