According to the US Federal Bureau of Prisons website, Javier Torres Felix, El JT, is scheduled for released Monday April, 8 2013 from the medium security prison camp fci in Beckley, West Virginia.

Usually a foreign national would be handed over to immigration for deportation, but he's a fairly high-ranking CDS associate, so who knows? In Mexico it has been reported that he could face charges in that country.

A few days from being released from the medium security prison in Raleigh County, West Virginia, United States, Sinaloa drug Lord Javier Torres Félix is being sought by the Mexican courts, to surrender for an arrest warrant which could lead him to face another trial, now in Sinaloa, for a murder committed years ago.

Javier Torres Felix, El JT, could face murder charges in Sinaloa


Mexico.-After completing a sentence of about eight years, on April 8, one of the men who assisted in the consolidation of the Sinaloa cartel at the beginning of the last decade, but one of the first to be extradited to face charges for drug trafficking in the United State, Javier Torres Felix, El JT, is scheduled for release.

According to the Federal Bureau of prisons (BOP, by its acronym in English), El JT fulfilled his last years in a prison known as Federal Correctional Institution Beckley, a few miles from the city of Charleston in West Virginia.

His release was scheduled for March 16, but according to an interview published in the weekly Ríodoce, signed by journalist Miguel Angel Vega, El JT was punished with 22 more days of imprisonment allegedly for bribing other inmates to get their telephone allotment.

Extradited in November 2006 to the United States, Torres Felix had two trials for conspiracy to introduce cocaine and money laundering, the first before the Court of the Central District of Los Angeles and the second before the Court of the District of Washington, DC.

Both accusations, published by the Department of Justice on 31 July 2003, at the conclusion of the operation Trifecta, the Sinaloan was noted  as responsible for organizing the transport of loads of several tons of cocaine to members of the Sinaloa cartel in the U.S., as well as the distribution of millions of dollars of proceeds from drug trafficking.

In the court of Washington DC, JT had as co-defendants in the same case Ismael Zambada Garcia and his son Vicente Zambada Niebla, whose trial had been postponed again and again in the Eastern District Court of Illinois.

However, since October 2012, Javier Torres has sought to obtain an injunction against an arrest warrant issued by a judge of the Criminal Branch of Culiacan for the crime of intentional homicide issued on the part of the Mexican federal justice department... This is the story.



A race against time

According to information from the Federal judiciary, Javier Torres Félix's defense attorneys filed a judgement of guarantees on October 1st of last year before the fourth district judge based in Culiacán, which began as the record 765/2012.

"View the demand for guarantees promoted by Javier Torres Félix, against the seventh judge of first instance of the field criminal acts, with residence in this city, and other authority; based on the articles 103, fraction I and 107, fractions I, VII and XV, of the Federal Constitution; 1st, fraction I, 36, 114, 116, 147, 149, 156, and others regarding the amparo law, supported the demand, therefore become record number 765/2012-I"says information from the Court.

For years, the seventh judge of the Criminal Branch maintained an arrest warrant against El JT for the crime of intentional homicide; However, the public data do not reveal who is the victim, or the date in which the common law public prosecutor requested the injunction.

At least publicly, the Secretariat of national defense said Javier Torres is responsible for killing an agent of the special forces in the Valley of San Lorenzo, to the South of Culiacan. Days later, on 28 January 2004, JT would be apprehended in the Sinaloan capital.

But it is unlikely that this crime has been assigned to the record in question, since the killing of a soldier is judged by federal courts and not by a common order.

The truth is that a week after filing the demand, on October 10th, the seventh judge presented his report, justified on the content of the dossier involving the native of Llano de los Refugio, Cosala, in the death of a person.

On November 11, 2012 the district judge issued a setback for El JT in the case, refusing a dismissal of the charges, i.e., he refused to grant the protection of the federal justice against the complainant.

Since El JT's attorneys put together their strategy for scuttling the resolution of the judge, to present on January 18, they presented an appeal before the second College of the tenth second circuit court based in Mazatlan.

In the Court of appeal the magistrate Jose Alejandro Garza Ruiz was appointed to report on the findings of the final resolution.

However, the case was sent to an auxiliary court in Zacatecas, where judge J. Jesús Martínez Soto was appointed.

The last public data on the trial was last February 20, so in these next few days the collegiate courts will dictate a resolution on judicial review, whether the initial demand to dismiss or proceed with the case will be decided.

It is not yet known if it will be before April 8, the date scheduled for El JT's release, as it is not known if the Attorney General of Justice of Sinaloa, through legal channels of the PGR and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, requested his extradition from the United States Government.



The first big fall

On 28 January 2004 the fate of Javier Torres came up: He was captured by elements of the army in a residence of Lomas de San Miguel in Culiacan.

It was the fourth time that he fell into the hands of the Government. In June 1990 he was arrested by the army in Mazatlan in possession of more than 800 kilos of marijuana and 4 AK-47 rifles. A few weeks later he managed to get out of prison.

In California he was apprehended along with four accomplices in 1992. He was prosecuted and sentenced for trafficking in cocaine and possession of proceeds of the sale of the drug. He was given five years in prison.

But he would soon return to Mexico to continue operating. On 27 May 1997 was captured in Quintana Roo with a cargo of 348.1 kilograms of cocaine in the company of his brother-in-law Raul Meza Ontiveros, El M-6, and two other men of the [CDS] organization.

They had just come out of a wine cellar where the drugs were hidden when they were caught. In addition, several vehicles, two boats and weapons were seized. However, he managed to have various charges reduced and get out on bail.

After his extradition, his brother Manuel Torres Félix began to ascend in the structure of the group headed by Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, until lhewas shot dead by the army last year in the vicinity of Oso Viejo, in the mucipality of Quila.

Operation Trifecta

If there was an operation that laid bare the Sinaloa Cartel and their associated trafficking network, it was operation Trifecta, which was revealed in July 2003 after the apprehension of more than 240 people in gringo territory.

With this came the first accusations against the clan of the "El Mayo" Zambada "El JT" and "Vicentillo" were made by the U.S. Government.

Basically they were accused of trafficking a total of 3,000 kilos of cocaine with an estimated value of $17 million, as well as  1,770 kilograms with a value of $30 million, between August 2011 and June 2002.

This indictment is in the Court of the District of Columbia, and only "El Mayo" has not been arrested.

That's a brazen ripoff of Chivis' mainboard post.

They dropped Chivis' BOP locator info, and they spelled my persona "Sikiyou Kid".

I don't think the government on either side wants this to get any media attention because he's going back home. Word from Culiacan is that his welcome home party is being planned already.

How does he get a sentence like that without cooperation?  Unless his was sanctioned, Arturo Villreal got 28 years in a similar role, he'll be in supermax til he's like 65.

If he didn't cut a deal, then why would his case be sealed, on top of the light sentence. People in California get more time than that for growing pot.

I'm surprised no one had posted it. I think its a couple years old judging by the photos in jail, he looks much younger in this one. There are articles saying he was brought in through Mexicali today and will be flown to Mexico city to face charges of the soldier he killed and organized crime.
