Tyler Court of Appeals upholds woman's 30-year drug sentence



The investigation was a cooperative effort of officers from the Anderson County Drug Investigation Unit, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, the Palestine Police Department, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Anderson County District Attorneys Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

In responding to Deltoro’s request for a lower sentence, the court of appeals in its opinion said the sentence was “not constitutionally disproportionate” to other sentences for other habitual or repeat offenders.

“I’m grateful Judge Fletcher’s sentence was upheld,” Lowe said about the ruling, “and that Ms. Deltoro’s drug dealing days may be over for awhile.”
