Current and Former Lawyers Arrested in Drug-Ring Bust in Texas
Officials from the United States Department of Justice announced Thursday that a group of 24 people were arrested in a drug-dealing scheme, one of which is a current lawyer and one is a former lawyer, according to The American-Statesman.

David Ramos and Richard Patrick Fagerberg both could face 10 years to life in prison “for their roles in a cocaine and methamphetamine distribution operation,” according to the Justice Department.

There have already been 10 people in custody indicted for their connection to the operation.

Even though 24 people were arrested, it is believed that at least 34 people are involved in the operation, which was a conspiracy to distribute cocaine and meth beginning in May of 2013.



During one raid, officers seized 87 kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of meth, four guns and some $1.5 million in “criminally derived assets in connection with this investigation.”

Fagerberg stopped practicing law after being injured during South by Southwest in 2011 because he “no longer possesses the mental capacity or thought processes necessary to effectively represent his clients,” according to a lawsuit he filed as a result of his injuries.

The lawyer for Ramos, Ben Florey, told the American-Statesman that his client has already entered a not guilty plea to the charges and was released. His bail was set at $10,000.

Florey also said that there was no money or drugs seized from Ramos that had any connection to him. Florey also said he does not know why Ramos was charged.

“We are looking forward to receiving the evidence from the government, so that we can clear up this matter,” Florey said. “We do not know any specific allegations or if perhaps someone is trying to provide false information in order to gain favor with the government.”

The indictment filed against Ramos and unsealed late this week did not offer any further information into the charges.
