Former Razorback Star Pleads Guilty In Oxycodone Case
LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) – A former Arkansas Razorback star running back pled guilty to using a communication device to facilitate a drug offense in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.
Cedric Cobbs, 34, was one of 33 people indicted in an oxycodone conspiracy in October of 2014. On Wednesday, Cobbs admitted he sold oxycodone pills to the head of the conspiracy, Charolda Walton.
Specifically, on March 16, 2014, in a deal set up by a series of calls and texts, Cobbs delivered oxycodone pills to Walton’s house, where Walton was waiting with a customer to buy the pills. The transaction was observed by law enforcement. According to the facts read in open court, Cobbs also sold oxycodone to Walton on March 15, and dealt with Walton on multiple other occasions.
In exchange for the guilty plea, the United States dismissed a count for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.
Cobbs faces up to four years in prison, a $250,000 fine and up to one year of supervised release. He will be sentenced on July 21, 2016.
