Indicted on 23 counts and convicted of four, multimillionaire Martha Marie Preston faced 40 years in federal prison.
Martha Marie Preston, self-made millionaire, shrewd business woman, and successful night club owner Martha Marie Preston had it all… until her double life as a drug kingpin was exposed by federal DEA agents tracking her every move. Dubbed "The Texas Queen" by state and national media, law enforcement reported that at the height of her operation in the 1980’s, the former drug mastermind and her enterprise controlled 50% of all drug traffic in the state of Texas.
In September 1988, Marie was tried under the powerful Continuing Criminal Enterprise Act, facing a life sentence without the possibility of parole if convicted. Although the feds failed to convict her of Continuing Criminal Enterprise, she was convicted of four counts of her 23 count indictment and served 10 years in prison.
Seeing the plight of incarcerated and recently released women and how often they returned to prison, she started an organization entitled Elite Ladies of Expression Inc.
This non profit organization located in Houston, Texas provides assistance to at-risk youth, incarcerated and recently released females, individuals with mental and physical health problem, and the homeless to transition them from prison back to society.
Second Chance: The Martha Marie Preston Story is about more than hard knocks and tough times. Marie’s life was radically changed and transformed when she united with her Heavenly Father and the true King, Jesus Christ, thereby gaining freedom from incarceration, as well as eternal freedom.
