A Port Isabel woman was sentenced to 13 years in state jail after a jury found her guilty on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity and the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. The guilty verdict on all six counts was handed down last Friday, March 3, a spokesperson for the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office said earlier this week.
Maria Alondra Rodriguez, 34, along with four other individuals, were arrested in a drug sting on Feb. 25, 2016. The DA’s office described Rodriguez as a “longtime nuisance” who has over 20 previous arrests for crimes ranging from assault, to family violence, to driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest.
