Cocaine Cowboy-Era Pilot To Be Sentenced In Car Fraud Case

A man who flew drugs for Colombian cartels during Miami's "cocaine cowboys" era is facing prison for a different charge. Mickey Munday is facing charges related to an automobile fraud case. 

The 72-year-old was convicted of mail fraud charges in January. At his trial on Monday, he could face a long prison sentence, but attorneys are asking for two years.

Munday was part of a stolen car ring that obtained the automobiles through false paperwork, according to prosecutors.

Munday has bragged about his drug smuggling days in interviews and starred in the 2006 documentary "Cocaine Cowboys." 

He served nine years in prison during the 1990s.
