A district judge wants the Federal Government to remove from a maximum security criminal in Oaxaca, the son of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho, who is considered the most dangerous drug trafficker in Mexico, and transfer to a jail located in Jalisco, state where precisely this subject operates, who even shot down a helicopter gunship.
Documents reveal that it was the Sixth District Judge in Federal Criminal Proceedings, based in Jalisco, Uriel Villegas Ortiz, who requested the transfer of Rubén Oseguera González, alias El Menchito, to the Administrative Body Deconcentrated of Prevention and Social Readaptation of the Ministry of the Interior .
Through an official letter issued last Tuesday, March 6, the judge urges the federal penitentiary to extract El Menchito from the Federal Social Readaptation Center (Cefereso) number 13, "CPS Oaxaca", and transfer it to Cefereso 2 Occidente, located in El Salto, Jalisco.
The person in charge of the General Coordination of Federal Centers of the Deconcentrated Administrative Body of Prevention and Social Readaptation is hereby ordered, without any pretext, to transfer the accused Ruben Oseguera González to the defendant within five calendar days ...", reads the document .
According to the request of the judge, in case the transfer of El Menchito, to the land where the Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generación (CJNG) operates, which his father heads, will take action against it.
"Aware of not doing so based on Article 44 Fraction IV of the Federal Code of Criminal Procedure, arrest will be ordered for twelve hours," warns the justice minister, who is located precisely in Jalisco.
The son of who is considered the most wanted criminal by the federal authorities, was arrested in Zapopan, Jalisco in February 2014, when he was 23 years old. Then he was accused of crimes such as carrying firearms and cartridges for the exclusive use of the Armed Forces, as well as operations with resources of illicit origin, organized crime and crimes against health.
Due to its degree of danger, he was immediately transferred to Mexico City to the facilities of the Office of the Special Prosecutor for Organized Crime Investigation (SEIDO) of the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (PGR).
At the time of his capture, the authorities assured him and a group of escorts that protected him four long weapons, nine short, a fragmentation grenade, 61 porters, more than a thousand useful cartridges, money in Mexican pesos and US dollars, as well as like four vehicles and a motorcycle
After remaining in the SEIDO, the Federal Public Ministry determined to consign it in the first instance to the maximum security prison of El Altiplano, in the State of Mexico.
For various security measures implemented by the federal penitentiary system, the man considered the heir of the CJNG was sent to the federal penitentiary located in Oaxaca, where he is currently being held.
Months after the capture of El Menchito or El Junior, federal authorities were about to arrest their father; however, hundreds of men under his command organized narcoblocks in at least 39 points in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara and in a score of neighboring municipalities that extended to states such as Colima, Michoacán and Guanajuato, as well as clashes, fires at gas stations, banks and stores, events that left seven dead and 19 injured.
Now, a federal judge wants his son to be taken from the jail in Oaxaca and taken to precisely one in those same lands.

And now the judge and his wife is dead.
Just last February 1, Uriel Villegas Ortiz assumed the position of control judge at the Federal Criminal Justice Center in Colima. He had not been in that entity for half a year when this Tuesday he was executed together with his wife Verónica Barajas.
His previous three years he had worked in one of the most complicated circuits of the Federal Judicial Branch, that of Jalisco, where the Attorney General of the Republic has carried out investigations against justice providers.
In March 2017, when he obtained the appointment of a judge, his first assignment was that of head of the Sixth District Court of Federal Criminal Proceedings of Jalisco and then the Ninth District Court of Amparo in Criminal Matters of the same State.
In the first court, he was in charge of one of the four criminal proceedings that were brought in Mexico against Rubén Oseguera González "El Menchito", son of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes "El Mencho", leader of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel.
On March 6, 2018, Villegas ordered the National Security Commission to transfer the son of the capo of the Oaxaca Federal Prison to that of the West, Jalisco, or else he would order the 12-hour arrest of the General Coordinator of Federal Centers.
Authorities who were related to the case at that time said that the transfer was carried out, although "El Menchito" only spent a short time in Tapatías lands, as they later took him to the Federal Prison in Chiapas and then to Sonora, his last stop prior to being extradited.
In the process for organized crime, as in all the trials that began for crimes committed in Mexico, Oseguera was acquitted, although this sentence apparently was not passed by Villegas.
At around 40 years old and originally from Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, in 2001 Villegas received a law degree from the Autonomous University of Sonora and was a legal advisor at the disappeared Banco Inverlat, SA
He entered the Judicial Power of the Federation as a judicial officer, then was an actuary, secretary and finally judge. He was assigned to courts and tribunals of Sonora, Guanajuato, Jalisco and, finally, Colima.
In November 2018, the then deputy attorney for Federal Crimes of the current Attorney General of the Republic, Felipe Muñoz Vázquez, revealed that there was an ongoing investigation against judges and magistrates linked to the CJNG.
A year later, the FGR arrested federal magistrate Isidro Avelar Gutiérrez, who, as head of the Sixth Unitary Court of Jalisco, ordered the release of Juan Francisco Aguilar Santana "Juan Pistolas", a man close to "El Mencho".
Avelar, who is currently incarcerated in the Altiplano Prison, at the time was accused of intervening and managing rulings before other federal justice providers in Jalisco in favor of various CJNG operators.
