Rather than face life in prison at the hands of a jury, six men charged with participating in a massive Beaumont-based drug trafficking conspiracy pleaded guilty on Aug. 14 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Giblin. Four other co-defendants have already pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy. One material witness was not charged, and records to their identity are sealed.
