A West Texas lawyer has been sentenced in El Paso to 20 years in federal prison for scheming to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel.

U.S. District Judge David Briones sentenced El Paso lawyer Marco Antonio Delgado on Friday. Delgado was found guilty in October of conspiring to launder up to $600 million for a now-defunct drug cartel between 2007 and 2008.

Delgado faces another trial in March. A superseding indictment accuses him of conspiring to launder money he allegedly stole from a Mexican utility company.

Before his November 2012 arrest, Delgado was a member of the board of directors of Carnegie Mellon University and a prominent El Paso philanthropist who donated to local charities.
