Texas perfume vendor gets two decades in drug case

As Julian Aguilar reports for the Texas Tribune, a perfume vendor got two decades behind bars in a drug charges case in which the vendor used his perfumes to "remove the stench" from drug cartel money, prosecutors said.

"Today's sentence should make people think twice about getting into business with narcotics traffickers," said the prosecutor.

The man's money-laundering scheme helped the Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico.

The man is said to have been making $30 million per year, but defense attorneys argued that he earned that money through his lawful perfume businesses.

Apparently, the jury did not agree, and the federal judge sentenced him to 20 years.
