Man sentenced to 12-years prison for drug manufacture, delivery

Local News

A Wichita Falls man received a 12-year prison sentence for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance.

Michael Esquibel, 44, was found with five bags of meth and $1,300 cash in his car in 2017.
Police officers said Esquibel refused consent for them to search his car, so they brought in a K9 who alerted the officers to narcotics.

Officers then went to his home and made a search there.

One year ago, Esquibel was again arrested at his home after Wichita County deputies served a search warrant and said they found a loaded handgun and $6,500 cash.

Deputies said they found notes leading them to believe drugs were being sold.

Esquibel’s record includes a conviction for a homicide in 1991 in Wichita County.  

He got a 10-year probated sentence for a manslaughter plea in that case.

He also was sentenced to five years in prison in 1996 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.. and in 2002 he was convicted of assault of a family member.
