Man Who Crashed Car Through BSA Gets His Day In Court
It was one of the wild stories back in May here in Amarillo.
You remember it right? The one where the man who had a car full of drugs slammed into the front doors of BSA with his car, then got out and walked into the lobby with a gun. If you forgot, you can catch up here.
Well, we have an update on the case of William Cash Love, and it's pretty much what we would've expected to see.
Love pleaded guilty to one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine.” As part of the plea deal, it looks like there's nothing related to the gun he went into the hospital with, so that's kind of a big one.
Now Love will await his actual sentencing in the case, but regardless of the plea deal, he will find himself in prison for quite a while. The question remains will they take into account the fact that he was once part of the big Tulia drug bust back in 1999?
Almost all of those defendants received a pardon in 2003 when Rick Perry was Governor. His sentence was also vacated by an appeals court that year. Are they allowed to take that into account?
Here's what Love is facing:
Imprisonment not to exceed 20 years, a fine not to exceed $1,000,000, supervised release for no less than three years once released from prison, restitution to victims or community, and forfeiture of property which includes his car, the drugs in the vehicle, and more.
No word on his sentencing date.
