Son of ex-Honduran president gets 24 years for drug charge

Thursday, September 7, 2017


The son of former Honduran President Porfirio Lobo was sentenced to 24 years in prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty to a U.S. charge of conspiring to import cocaine into the United States.

Fabio Lobo, 46, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan federal court. He had pleaded guilty in May 2016, about a year after he was arrested in Haiti in a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration sting.
