Dallas Man Sentenced to 33 Months in Federal Prison on Conviction Stemming from Drug Activity at Northwest Dallas Club

Hunter Lee Foster and 14 Others Indicted in First Round - Eleven Indicted in Second Round

DALLAS — A Dallas man, Hunter Lee Foster, 25, was sentenced on Monday by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 33 months in federal prison following his guilty plea in September 2015 to a felony drug offense stemming from his role in illegal drug activity at a northwest Dallas club, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Foster pleaded guilty in September 2015 to one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, specifically, 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-ethylcathinone (ethylone) – a drug also known as “Molly.”  Foster is the last of several defendants, who were arrested in December 2014 at various locations, including at and near a club known as Eternal Eden Afterhours at the Jaguars Club on Reeder Road in Dallas, to be sentenced.

Foster admitted selling “Molly” to undercover officers on several occasions from September to November 2014.    Others charged and convicted in that first round have pleaded guilty to various charges and most have received federal prison sentences ranging from probation to 120 months.

In October 2015, another group of defendants was arrested on charges related to drug activity at Dallas clubs.  Most of those defendants, who were arrested at various locations in North Texas, including at and near the Lizard Lounge on Swiss Avenue and Unlis3d Afterhours on Sovereign Row, in Dallas, have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

The Dallas Police Department Narcotics and Homicide Unit, with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Allen, Denton and Garland Police Departments, and the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Phelesa Guy is in charge of the prosecution.
