WACO (March 3, 2014) Three men were on trial Monday in Waco's federal court all charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to deliver crack cocaine.

Cornelius Tywarren Wilson, Christopher Andrew Wilson and Bryant Keith Presley all were charged with conspiring with at least four other men to possess more than 10 ounces of crack cocaine, intending to sell it.

Jury selection in Judge Walter S. Smith Jr's. court began Monday at 9 a.m. and court officials expected testimony to begin later Monday afternoon.

Count One of the superseding indictment naming all three men says as far back as October 2012, the trio and others conspired to possess and deliver more than 280 grams of crack cocaine throughout Central Texas.

Count two says the group of men also possessed more than five kilograms of the drug at another time, also intending to sell it.

Federal court sentencing guidelines say a person convicted of that level of crime can face a prison term of between 10 years and life and a fine not to exceed $10 million.
