Operation Crackdown Convictions

All of the Edna defendants were charged with at least one count of delivery of less than one gram of crack cocaine. Seventeen were charged with delivery inside a Drug-Free Zone (near a school), which allowed the state to seek a longer sentence; 12 defendants had their charges "enhanced" based on prior charges – in one case going back as far as 1975 – for which they'd already served their time.
