LITTLEFIELD, Texas -

A Lubbock man pleaded guilty to two charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver Thursday.

Larry Darnell Blaylock, 34, was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Blaylock's plea came four days into a jury trial on one of the charges, after he had already pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon. Blaylock had four separate drug charges pending in Lamb County.

The two charges stem from a search warrant conducted in August of last year at a home in Littlefield, just two streets away from Littlefield High School. Evidence showed after law enforcement arrived at the home to conduct a search, Blaylock ran inside the bathroom and attempted to rip open a bag of cocaine.

Lamb County District Attorney Scott A. Say also presented evidence to jurors that Blaylock was caught in possession of the controlled substances, a digital scale, multiple clear plastic baggies and drug ledgers.

Thursday morning attorneys for both sides re-convened and the Court held a hearing outside the presence of the jury. A short time after, the state was notified Blaylock wanted to change his plea.

"Sometimes in the middle of trial, new facts develop that change the case for either side. In this case, when that happened, it greatly affected the defensive strategy in a way none of us anticipated. We always want to fulfill our sworn obligation, to uphold justice, and I feel like the resolution of these cases did just that," Say said.

Blaylock is serving both convictions at the same and only has to serve a max of 25 years. He must serve five before he's eligible for parole.
