TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Trinity County Jury found James Arnes Stubblefield, 42, of Trinity,  guilty of felony delivery of a controlled substance (cocaine).

Wednesday, Stubblefield was sentenced to serve 50 years in prison and pay a $10,000 fine.
 
The conviction stemmed from an April 2008 undercover operation conducted by Texas DPS Narcotics Division.
 
Trinity County Sheriff Jones contacted DPS Narcotics to provide them with an informant he thought would be able to carry out undercover drug purchases, from major Trinity County drug dealers.
 
According to the Trinity County Sheriff's office, Stubblefield, and other known drug dealers were arrested during their efforts of the collaborative undercover investigation.
 
The sheriff's office also added, District Attorney Joe Ned Dean and Assistant District Attorney Bennie Schiro plead to the jury for a punishment that would send a message to current and potential drug dealers thinking about setting up shop in Trinity County.
