Three people were convicted Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court on drug charges stemming from a raid in which 100 pounds of cocaine was seized, while a fourth defendant was acquitted.
Gloria Jean Gonzales of Anaheim; her sister, Frances Mae Gonzales of Irvine, and Richard Allen Aguilierra of Tustin were found guilty on charges of conspiracy and possession of cocaine and heroin for sale.
Moses John Chavez, 32, was acquitted of similar charges, three months after a jury deadlocked, 11 to 1, in favor of convicting him, forcing a new trial.
"We're delighted," said Robert K. Weinberg, who represented Chavez. "(Chavez) came close to going to the state penitentiary."
Weinberg said Chavez lived at Gloria Gonzales' house in Irvine but did not know a drug operation was going on there.
