Four Lubbock-area residents will spend their next years in prison for their roles in a meth distribution scheme.

On Friday, April 13th, U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings sentenced 44-year-old Johnny Lee Kendrick of Lubbock to more than 15 years in prison. Kendrick pleaded guilty last January to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Last month, 37-year-old Florentino Corrales, Jr. of Levelland to 15 years in prison, and 33-year-old Mydi Marie Jewell of Lubbock has been sentenced to 37 months in prison. They both pleaded guilty to one count of distribution or possession with intent to distribute five grams or more, but less than 50 grams of meth.

41-year-old Danny Bautista of Wilson has also been sentenced to 6-and-a-half years in prison for pleading guilty to the same offense.

Kendrick admitted that he and Jewell went to Levelland in November of 2011 and purchased 51.75 net grams of methamphetamine from a person at an auto parts store. They were stopped by a Hockley County Sheriff’s Office deputy, and found Jewell with the drugs.

Corrales sold more than 27 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Highway 114 in Levelland. Bautista sold more than 27 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant in a supermarket’s parking lot in Lubbock along 50th Street for $1,400.
