Description: Fresno, California criminal law lawyer represented Defendant charged with conspiring to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute heroin and methamphetamine.

Between Dec. 1, 2020, and Jan. 26, 2021, Eva Dolores Romero’s son was an inmate at the Fresno County Jail. Romero, age 55, of Fresno, conspired with her son and others outside of jail to smuggle methamphetamine and heroin into the jail for distribution among inmates. The plot was unfoiled when law enforcement agents reviewed recorded jail calls and learned about the attempted smuggling set to occur on January 26. On that date, law enforcement intercepted an individual attempting to deliver athletic shoes to the jail for an inmate. The shoes were searched, and hidden compartments were found inside the shoes containing the illicit narcotics.

This case was the product of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Fresno Police Department, and the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin J. Gilio prosecuted the case.
