Confessed meth dealer sentenced to seven years in federal prison

September 16, 2011


A federal judge Friday sentenced a 26-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man who admitted supplying methamphetamine to a Lawrence dealer to serve seven years in prison.

District Judge Kathryn Vratil ordered the sentence Friday morning for Alfonso Salazar Solis, who had pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine from October 2010 to February 2011 in the Lawrence area. He admitted to supplying methamphetamine to Joseph Henry Hibbs Jr., 43, of Lawrence. Federal prosecutors alleged one of the deals occurred at a house near Woody Park in the 200 block of Maine Street and at parking lots at both Walmart stores in Lawrence.

Hibbs is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 4. Another co-defendant David John Kessler, 35, of Lawrence, is scheduled to be sentenced in December.

As the social heirarchy in prison goes, he'll be held in high regard. (sarcasm-not approval) Heck, when passing meds in a prison, instead of yelling "pill call", get the guard to yell "drugs", and most inmates show up, saying "Oh drugs-yeah, that's what I'm here for too."

It isn't the cure, it is the application.

Though the 56 grain round wouldn't cost much, the 20 lawyers, multiple judges, filing fees, "expert" witnesses and other assorted riff-raff would cost the taxpayers $Millions$.

Cheaper to put him in prison for a few years.

The only thing worse that a well paid lawyer is a well paid politician.
