A Hamblen County Criminal Court jury acquitted a Mexican national who was taken into custody at the scene of a large marijuana bust in Morristown last year, but the man can’t leave jail.

That’s because Giovanni Gutierrez told jurors he entered the United States illegally. Gutierrez, 40, remains in the Hamblen County Jail without bond awaiting deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Members of the Morristown Police Department arrested Gutierrez and three other Mexican nationals following a raid on Landmark Drive in October 2005. Narcotics officers seized 28 pounds of marijuana, 6 grams of cocaine,$3,100 in cash and a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol.

What prosecutors were unable to accomplish, however, was linking Gutierrez to any of the seized evidence.

Gutierrez’s attorney, Doug Jenkins, argued successfully that his client held no drugs, cash or firearm.

Assistant District Attorney General Kim Lane attempted to link Gutierrez to the drug-trafficking operation through the testimony of another defendant, Mario Sorcia-Quintano, that Gutierrez helped open the box that contained the 28 pounds of marijuana.

Gutierrez testified that he came to live at the Landmark Drive residence by chance. He maintains he paid a man in Dallas $1,000 to drive him to Miami, where he expected to find work as a hibachi chef in a Japanese restaurant.

Gutierrez told the court his friend deposited him in Morristown because he "was supposed to do something here." Gutierrez says he’d been living at the Landmark Drive home for approximately 45 days prior to the drug bust.

Law enforcement officials in McAllen, Texas intercepted the parcel and determined it held illegal drugs. Officials there notified the Morristown Police Department, and MPD Detective Gary Bean posed as a parcel service employee and delivered the package.

Minutes later, members of the MPD Special Response Team stormed the residence and took Gutierrez, 40, Sorcia-Quintano, 22, Pedro Sanchez Torres, 31, and Armando Ortega Chavez, 31, into custody.

The package was addressed to Chavez, and police recovered the marijuana in his bedroom. The handgun was found in Sorcia-Quintano’s bedroom, and he, Chavez and Torres all were holding large sums of money.

These three defendants pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana for resale Wednesday and were sentenced to two years in jail. Criminal Court Judge James E. Beckner also imposed a $2,000 fine.

Prosecutors did not pursue cocaine charges against any of the defendants.

The trio will be deported when they finish serving their jail sentences.

Gutierrez testified he first entered the United States illegally approximately 12 years ago. Deputy Scott Purkey, a corrections officer at the Hamblen County Jail, says Gutierrez has been deported on at least one prior occasion.

billy i agree with you 100 percent. We should hold trials for them but it seems like all the us is interested in is the dam war they dont care about whats really going on in the us and i think thats wrong they send us to trial for dum stuff but they seem to let them go and thats not right either i think if we have to go to court over the stuff we do then they should have to go to trial also?

Are you threatening to kill Federal Officers? OOOOHHH, that's a LONG TIME in jail, Pedro. Don't you know that the FBI can find you easily when you post threats on message boards? Yep, they can and since I have a family member who works for the FBI, I think I'll just send this info on to him, so he will know that some wanna be illegal gangbanger is threatening the lives of our Federal Officers. Look out, Pedro, ICE is coming to get you!

well my dear friend stop the bull shit! to fix all the illegal immigrants is because they want the funding to finance another war. do the math! 12 millions of illegal immigrants X 5000 dls.= 60 billions. and go from there. you have such a small brain because you can't see beyond your ugly nose punk

I'd like to see every illegal be made to serve a few years in COMBAT in Iraq,(and probably Iran before it's over) IF they WANT to stay here SOOOOOOOOOOOO bad. Make it MANDATORY and you'd see the illegal scum RUNNING BACK ACROSS THE BORDER!

Someone told me the other day that if all the Mexicans in Morristown left that the Chicken House would be shut down. I told him that not only are they at the Chicken house, but they have the other good paying jobs as well. Some are at Tuff-Torq, Color Tech, and many other top notch factory jobs. I worked at one of the Universal Plants in Morristown, and when they brought up the Dining Room Plant from Georgia that is when they brought with them the famous "GARCIA LABOR".
Which as everyone knows is finally out of business. But it left the Mexicans here in our town where we are told by our City Council to embrass "Their Culture" and "Educate" their childern. While the other childern are put to the side. And as AMERICAN'S we are not allowed to say "ENOUGH" and we are labeled "RACIST". No we are not "RACIST" just tired of having the sign on our forehead that says "STEP ON ME"

Hey...

They're looking for a better life.

Go figure.

If people around here weren't such lazy asses and jobs weren't in need, they would find refuge elsewhere. But instead, a large part of Morristown mooches welfare and sits on their collective asses all of the time.

Be thankful that these people exist so that you can enjoy chicken packaged freshly.

These people are skilled.

You laugh about reattaching their fingers...But guess who pays the bill......We do,(taxpayers)..They get the Tenncare, Welfare, and WIC while we have older citizens that are on fixed incomes that have been booted off of Tenncare. We are just making it easier for them to have a better life by living off of US!! I have stood in line at a Grocery store and seen them take out the Food Stamp card, and WIC Vouchers and then go out to a Esclade with the big rims. I work hard for a living and it makes a person mad to see this. I know of a couple that can't get into Pre-K at West Elementary because they make a hundred dollars more than allowed. But guess what any Hispanic kid can get a free lunch, and first spot to all the education they want in Hamblen County. Just Wait "MHWS Trojan" when it comes around to Budget time and Council want to make cuts school system. So that the Hispanics can learn ENGLISH.
