Collin County Man Sentenced To 25 Years

SHERMAN, Texas – The Eastern District of Texas sentenced a Plano man to 25 years in federal prison for drug trafficking violations.

Nathaniel Edward Gonzalez, 36, pleaded guilty on Mar. 16, 2021, to possession with intent to distribute heroin resulting in death and was sentenced to 300 months in federal prison on Jan. 6, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Amos L. Mazzant.

According to information presented in court, on Jan. 16, 2019, Gonzalez distributed heroin to an individual at his place of business in Plano. Coworkers found that individual deceased with the needle still in his arm. An investigation led officers to Gonzalez, who had previously been convicted of the same conduct in 2005 when he provided heroin to a 16-year-old resulting in an overdose death.

A federal grand jury indicted Gonzalez on Feb. 7, 2019. The case was investigated by the Plano Police Department Narcotics Unit and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey Batson.
