Sam Hurd's Partner Pleads Guilty To Federal Drug Charges

A defendant in the Sam Hurd drug case pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a cocaine possession charge in a Dallas courtroom. Toby Lujan, who was accused of attempting to set up a large drug network with the former Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of cocaine. Following a plea deal, the suggested sentencing was five to 40 years in prison.

Lujan's plea deal requires him to cooperate with authorities, including testifying in the case against Hurd if he is asked to do so. Hurd was arrested on Dec. 14, 2011, for allegedly attempting to purchase and distribute large amounts of cocaine and marijuana. He is currently in jail in Texas after violating his the conditions of his bond by failing two drug tests.

Hurd graduated from Northern Illinois before playing five seasons for the Cowboys and one season with the Bears.
