Meza gets 20 years

Share this page...

A Wise County jury sentenced Alberto Jose Meza to 20 years in prison Wednesday after finding him guilty of possession of a controlled substance. Meza was arrested July 17, 2012, in Rhome after he was pulled over for speeding at 2:30 a.m. More than 10 grams of cocaine, along with baggies and a digital scale, were found hidden behind the dashboard of the pickup he was driving. The sentence is the maximum for the second-degree felony. The jury did not assess a fine. Assistant District Attorney Patrick Berry said he was “proud of the jury” for “sending a message to people who want to bring drugs into Wise County — go somewhere else.”

    20 years x 40,000 dollars a year + medical, dental = over a “million” tax payers dollars, not to mention welfare for his wife and kids! Where were the victims and violence in this crime, 5 years would have been plenty! Still at 5 years we the tax payers would not have gotten a good return on our money! Mr. Berry how is it you feel sending the same message for how many years is working, if so why are you still locking more people up year after year? The reality is, through propaganda and fear mongering the tax payers of Wise County continuing to be manipulated in to support this “known” failure called the war on drugs!

    I invite those with an open mind to http://www.leap.cc Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, arm yourself with the truth!

    There Has To Be A Better Way!!!
