Sullivan City police chief sentenced to 10yrs for his role in helping traffickers move 2 tons of pot thru town

McAllen, Texas

Sullivan City’s former police chief received a 10-year prison sentence for his role in a drug trafficking ring busted by federal authorities last year.

Hernan Guerra Jr. and seven other men learned their sentences at a hearing Wednesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in McAllen.

Guerra’s sentence came after he pleaded guilty for his role safeguarding Mexican drug traffickers moving more than 2 tons of marijuana through Sullivan City.

“I am sorry for what I did,” Guerra told U.S. District Judge Randy Crane at his sentencing hearing.

“When you do something like this, you cause people to lose confidence in our government,” the judge told Guerra.
