FORT WORTH, Texas — Thomas Cody, of Stephenville, Texas, Chalee Campbell, of Fort Worth, Texas, Jacob Hendricks, aka, “Jake Hendricks, “of Clifton, Texas, Terry McConathy, of Benbrook, Texas, Rebecca Mullins, of Stephenville, Texas, and Christal Walker, of De Leon, Texas, are in federal custody following their arrests May 29, 2018, on federal drug conspiracy charges, announced Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. 

            The defendants were all charged with one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute a controlled substance, and made their initial appearance Tuesday, May 30, 2018, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cureton.   

            According to the Complaint filed on May 10, 2018, from approximately July 2017 through January 2018, the defendants conspired together, and with others, to possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine throughout the Northern District of Texas and elsewhere.  Members of the conspiracy had a fluid hierarchy that evolved over time.  Some of the money derived from the sale and distribution of the methamphetamine was used to purchase additional quantities of methamphetamine. 

A complaint is a written statement of the essential facts of the offense charged and must be made under oath before a magistrate judge.  A defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. The government has 30 days to present the matter to a grand jury for indictment.  The maximum statutory penalty for the offense charged is 40 years in federal prison and a $5,000,000 fine.         

            The Drug Enforcement Administration and Stephenville Police Department are in charge of the investigation and Assistant United States Attorney Shawn Smith is in charge of the prosecution.
