High School Drug Bust May Get Senior 30 Years

East Moline, IL
High School Drug Bust May Get Senior 30 Years

On Monday, 18 year old Hugo Velez, a senior at United Township High school, was arrested for allegedly trying to sell cocaine inside the school. Now he's behind bard and his classmates are doing the talking.

" He seems like a good kid. I never thought he would do something like this, it shocked me," says one of Hugo's classmates.

People that know 18 year old, Hugo Velez are still trying to figure out what went wrong. Crystal Fluegel is a sophomore at UT. She says Velez like to be involved with school activities, he played soccer for a while. "His friends and him went break dancing, that's just what they did." says Fluegel.

Fluegel also said Hugo comes from a supportive family. Neighbors say Velez had lived on 10 Ave. in East Moline with his two brothers and parents. But days ago, the city forced his family out of their home because of unsanitary living conditions. Could that have played a role in the alleged dealing?

"I don't know, says Fluegel. "He might have got peer pressure, he might have needed the money. I don't know. He was just a quiet kid."

United Township's Liaison Officer, Richard Holman says he's never had contact with Velez before. He says the incident on Monday surprised him too.

Because the alleged crime took place on school ground, Velez is being held at the Rock Island County Jail on held a million dollars bail. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison. A preliminary hearing is set for May 27.

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

It's a pity, really.

Right out of high school, straight to the jailhouse... for a good 1/3 of your life too!

Who's running this country anyway?!?!

Things like this make me so sad. How can people be so cruel and unforgiving?

The penalty is way off, but I gotta say that I don't want coke deals going down in a High School. This guy stepped over the line.
