Mexico judge who freed Chapo's son investigated after discovery of millions of dollars in bank transfers

MEXICO CITY — Mexico's judiciary says it is investigating possible links to drug traffickers for a federal judge who ordered the release of a son of since captured drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

The Federal Judiciary Council statement Wednesday says it opened the investigation of judge Jose Luna Altamirano after detecting he made bank transfers in the millions of dollars that were not reflected in his financial disclosures. The council says several family members also made large bank deposits.


Luna Altamirano revoked a five-year prison sentence for Guzman's son Archivaldo Guzman Salazar in 2008, saying he had been sentenced based on "subjective, personal assessments and without a legal basis."

The council says Luna Altamirano has not been allowed on the bench since May 2013.

'El Chapo' Guzman was captured in February.

Even though El Chapo still runs the show, having his kid back out on the streets is terrible news for everyone - including the gov't.

He will just fill the void that Chapo left.  What will happen to the judge, if anything?
