A Winchester woman has been sentenced for her role in helping a Mexican drug cartel sell large amounts of cocaine in Virginia.

After being convicted in February of 2019, Judith Wright was sentenced Tuesday (6/11/2019) in U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg to 84 months of federal incarceration. U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen said Tuesday that Wright partnered with members and associates of the Mexican Drug Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), one of the most violent in the world, to sell cocaine in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. The 38-year-old transported large shipments of cocaine into Virginia from California and funneled money through her bank account.
