On Aug. 29, 2012, Lopez-Mendoza met an undercover agent in the parking lot of a Rolling Meadows Wal-Mart to sell him a kilogram of cocaine for $31,000, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Mike Crowe. The officer took Lopez-Mendoza into custody at that time, Crowe said.

Lopez-Mendoza received credit for 500 days in custody. He must complete 75 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
