Adrian Estaban Sanchez Heredia, 49, faces up to life in prison and a $4 million fine. His sentencing is scheduled for June 27.

Heredia admitted to importing about 440 pounds of cocaine from Mexico in 2002 and paying couriers to hide the drugs in the back seats and gas tanks of their cars, according to court documents.
