Federal Judge Seals Pleas In Sequoyah County Drug Bust Case

Three of eleven defendants in a major drug trafficking case in Oklahoma have gone to court in Muskogee.

Sammy Valdivia[pictured] and his wife Rhonda of Sallisaw are accused of using their horse training business to launder millions of dollars in drug money. DEA investigators say the Valdivias and nine other defendants brought millions of dollars worth of marijuana and thousands of kilos of cocaine to Oklahoma from Mexico.

Hoyet Philpot was also in court.

All three were scheduled to change their not-guilty pleas. But the judge sealed the case. So we won't know what happens until the seal is lifted.
