A Denison man charged with drug trafficking in District Court for Carroll County has been ordered to serve up to 15 years in prison. The order against 30-year-old Gerardo Emmanuel Medina was handed down Friday after he reached a plea agreement with prosecutors. Medina pled guilty to one count of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver, a class C felony with a habitual offender enhancement, and carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor. He was sentenced to up to 15 years on the trafficking charge and will not be eligible for parole until serving at least three years. For the aggravated misdemeanor, Medina was sentenced to two years in prison to be served concurrently with the 15-year prison term. In exchange for his guilty plea, one count of third-offense possession of marijuana, a class D felony, two counts of driving while barred, aggravated misdemeanors, and failure to provide proof of financial liability and fraudulent use of registration charges were dismissed. Medina was arrested by the Manning Police Department on March 6, 2019 after he was found in possession of nearly 6 grams of marijuana, 13 grams of methamphetamine, packaging materials and a switchblade knife.
