An Ector County Jury found a 45-year-old man guilty of possession of cocaine and was sentenced to 99 years in prison on Wednesday.

Pedro Amancio was found guilty of possession of 103 grams of cocaine and received a $10,000 fine. Amancio’s sentence was enhanced due to multiple prior felony convictions.

Amancio pled guilty to possession of cocaine, a third-degree felony, on Jan. 15, 2016, court records show.

Michael Munk prosecuted the case, while Steve Hershberger represented Amancio.
