MIAMI (AP) — After 26 years as a fugitive, a man investigators called the last of the "Miami Vice" era's "cocaine cowboys" pleaded guilty Thursday to a drug charge, closing a notorious chapter in the city's colorful criminal history. Gustavo Falcon, who was finally caught while biking through a quiet Florida suburb, pleaded guilty to a single cocaine distribution conspiracy charge. The 56-year-old Falcon could get a prison sentence of no more than 14 years if U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno agrees to the plea deal.
