Twelve people have been indicted and arrested for meth distribution, and four on murder charges, in connection with a large-scale white supremacist Texas drug gang. According to the indictment, the gang "Stupid Woods" (also known as "SWS" or "Solid Wood Soldiers") is a "whites only" organization that primarily distributes methamphetamine inside and outside of Texas jails and prisons. According to the indictment, the group has a complex system of rules and regulations for membership, with a "blood in, blood out" commitment that requires those joining or leaving the group to undergo violent beatings. According to the US Attorney's Office in Beaumont, Texas, SWS operates with a chain of command, electing positions such: president, vice-president, captain, lieutenant, and soldier. Four members of the gang are accused in the murder of James Lee Sedtal, after he allegedly assaulted a member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. The indictment charges all twelve defendants with conspiring to distribute methamphetamine between September 2010 and March 2011, for which they could each face 10 years to life in federal prison. If convicted of murder as charged, the four defendants face either life imprisonment or the death penalty.
