30 Years -- Cocaine Conspiracy

Lucas Lopez, prisoner of the drug war
I had a friend who was a confidential informant for the government. He told me he needed a boat for a job.

I told him I couldn't lend him my boat, so he asked if I could find him one to rent out near Tampa.

When I returned, I was arrested by U.S. Customs agents for conspiracy. There never was a boat rented, and no drugs were involved.

My father, Lucas, was also given 30 years.
