This afternoon, David Torres Quezada, was adjudicated guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison, for charges in three cases, that involve kidnapping and drug trafficking in Lee County.
He was sentenced to 20 years in prison on each of two counts of Kidnapping, for a crime that happened on February 12, 2021. On that day, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous 911 call about two people being held hostage at a residence in Bonita Springs.
Deputies went to the home and discovered two victims. Both had been attacked, bound, and put into trucks, after walking into the backyard of a home in the San Carlos Park area. They were then driven to a house in Bonita Springs and left on the floor of a garage until they were released when deputies arrived.
A search warrant was served at the location and trafficking amounts of drugs were found that belonged to Quezada. Today he was adjudicated guilty and sentenced as follows on the drug charges:
• Trafficking in Phenethylamines – 10 grams or more: 20 years in prison
• Trafficking in Methamphetamine – 14 grams or more: 20 years in prison
• Trafficking in Cocaine – 28 grams or more: 20 years in prison
• Trafficking in Fentanyl – 28 grams or more: 20 years in prison
• Trafficking in Heroin – 4 grams or more: 15 years in prison
• Trafficking in Oxycodone – 7 grams or more: 15 years in prison
• Possession of Cannabis – 20 grams or more: 5 years in prison
He was also adjudicated guilty and sentenced to 5 years in prison for a Possession of Controlled Substance charge from a 2021 case, when a Lee County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop and the defendant had Ecstasy in his pocket. All of the sentences are to run concurrently.
Assistant State Attorney Olivia Ferrell and Assistant State Attorney Jonathan Levy prosecuted the cases.
