Lawrence man pleads to crack cocaine charge

January 31, 2007


A Lawrence man will face at least five years in prison after pleading guilty Monday to federal drug charges.

Lonnie Ray Teichman, 47, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute more than 5 grams of crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

The charge carries a five-year minimum sentence. Teichman is scheduled for sentencing April 23.

In his plea, Teichman admitted that between 2003 and 2006 he took part in a drug trafficking conspiracy in Lawrence with at least nine other co-conspirators at his apartment at 1401 E. 21st Terrace.

The apartment, used to manufacture and distribute crack cocaine, is near Kennedy School.

Carl Ray Roubison, Ryan Lavell Green and James William Beltch also have entered guilty pleas in the case.

Six other defendants are set for jury trial July 9.
