Florence, AZ – The Pinal County Superior Court on Wednesday, August 18, 2010, sentenced Willie Henry Stringfellow Jr., to 9.25 years in prison for selling illegal narcotics, a Class 2 Felony.
Stringfellow, 28, was arrested in March, 2010 following a seven-month long investigation by the Casa Grande Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. He was indicted on numerous charges of “knowingly selling a narcotic drug.”
Stringfellow pled guilty to sale of narcotic drugs on Wednesday, August 18, 2010.
“We will relentlessly fight drug trafficking in our communities and neighborhoods,” said James P. Walsh, Pinal County Attorney. “We will prosecute vigorously drug crimes committed in Pinal County.”
The investigation involved an undercover operation. For about seven months, a task force targeted the sales, distribution and violence associated with PCP and other illegal drugs in Casa Grande, Coolidge and surrounding communities. During this same period the task force conducted over 100 enforcement operations. Officers of these different agencies worked together to arrest and indict more than 24 accused drug dealers and suppliers.
