‘D Magazine:’ Corwin Pleads Guilty to Drug Charge

Gina Corwin, the University Park mother of 10 who was among 11 indicted in a North Texas drug trafficking operation, has pleaded guilty, reports our D Magazine colleague Peter Simek.

Corwin, who was charged with seven counts of drug and weapons-related offenses in the indictment, pleaded guilty to a single charge, “possessing with intent to manufacture and distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine,” according to a post at dmagazine.com.

Simek wrote D Magazine’s April cover story: “The Highland Park Drug Ring: How Did a Mother of 10 and a Plano Cop Wind Up Pushing Pills in the Park Cities?”
