U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson sentenced Elda Deyanira Delfin, 37, of Oklahoma City to 21 months in prison after she pleaded guilty to a charge of misprision of a felony—failing to report a felony crime.

Delfin’s husband, Diego Delfin-Esquivel, 27, of Oklahoma City, was sentenced Monday to more than 11 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a methamphetamine trafficking charge. He also faces additional charges in Oklahoma.

Shortly after 8 a.m. on Oct. 8, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper stopped a 2015 Kia Sorento SUV on Interstate 40 on a traffic violation of an improperly placed or obscured license plate, according to court records.

The trooper then talked to Delfin-Esquivel, the driver, and Delfin, a passenger, about their trip through the area, and both appeared nervous and gave conflicting information about their travels.

“During the traffic stop, Delfin started to pump breast milk from her breasts in what (the trooper) believed was an attempt to distract him from searching the interior of the vehicle,” according to court records.

Delfin then told the trooper she could not stop pumping once she started. Because of Delfin’s actions, the trooper thought Delfin was trying to hide something inside the SUV.

The trooper asked Delfin-Esquivel to search the SUV and he agreed, according to the affidavit. During the search, the trooper found nine bundles of methamphetamine in the passenger’s side of the vehicle. Six of the bundles were in a box by Delfin’s feet and three more bundles were found under the passenger’s seat where Delfin was sitting, according to a court affidavit.

During the investigation, a Drug Enforcement Administration agent interviewed another unidentified person who said Delfin-Esquivel was a methamphetamine dealer, that his wife was aware of his drug trafficking and that the couple had made several trips on short notice to unknown locations.

Child Protective Services also took custody of a 3-year-old child who was in the Sorento, a DPS spokesman said.
