"The Queen of the Pacific", Leaves Prison in the US; They Gave Her 70 months, But She Has Already Completed Them

Sandra Avila will be deported from the country, once a judge in Miami gave her a sentence of five years in prison, which they have to count from the moment of her detention in Mexico, which she completes in 3 days.

Miami.  Sandra Ávila Beltrán, known as the Queen of the Pacific, was sentenced today to 70 months in prison by a federal tribunal in Miami for helping a drug trafficker to evade justice.

However, the judge, Michael Moore, considered that her incarceration ought to be counted from  Ávila a Beltrán was detained in Mexico on the 28th of September 2007, and for this reason she has completed her sentence in 3 days.  Then the Mexican woman will be deported to her country.

That maximum sentence that the Queen of the Pacific was facing was 15 years in prison and up to 5 million dollars in fines, but her lawyer had requested that the judge consider her time served since her arrest in 2007.

In order to obtain a lighter sentence, in April the Mexican woman pleaded guilty in accordance with a sealed agreement and with the prosecution.  In 2004, the United States had accused her of conspiracy to import cocaine and conspiracy to distribute at least 100 kilograms of the drug into the United States.

Ávila Beltrán, aged 52, accepted her culpability as an accomplice of her ex boyfriend, the Colombian, Juan Diego Espinosa Ramírez.  The man, who acted as a liaison between the Mexican Sinaloa Cartel and the Colombian Cartel North of the Valley, had pleaded guilty to charges related to cocaine trafficking in 2009.

In her admission of guilt, Ávila Beltrán admitted that she facilitated money transfers to Espinosa so that he could travel and harbored him so that he could avoid arrest in Mexico between 2002 and 2004.

Will Chapo/Mayo give her a position when she goes back?

I guess it depends on what was in the sealed agreement.

250,000 to 500,000 lawyer fees. Probably another 50 to 150 million forfeiture to the government & agreeing to testify against some Columbians.

Is there really a need for another c#ke broker in Mex? Her position was as a go between but the game has changed how often do we hear of 15 to 20 tons loads being sent to mexico now? South Americans would not deal with her now.

Yes, she had have cooperated for that sentence, in spite of my somewhat admiration(?)/attraction(?) to her, that's obvious.  If she had any money somewhere save with family, she could maybe live comfortably, or be another has been in a bordertown brothel or something.

@24.  I don't see anything out of the ordinary in her case.  The fact that she faced a maximum of 15 years and only received a sentence 5 years after a plea bargain was made is not unusual.

The concept is based upon saving the taxpayers money by avoiding the expense of an extended trial.  The courts with overcrowded dockets benefit by quickly disposing of a case.  The prosecutors benefit by getting an "easy" conviction.  The defendant benefits by not risking a lot longer time in prison.  Everyone wins.

The concept of credit for time served is very common in criminal convictions.  In many cases, it is even mandated by the sentencing guidelines of the federal courts.  

So I don't see what all the fuss is about.  She didn't receive any "special" treatment.

Drjane.  You said.
Great concept, but your talking about Florida.  The same Florida spent over 4.5M in a failed prosecution of Casey Anthony.

No Dr.Jane.  I am talking about a federal court that just happened to be sitting in Florida.  I am not talking about the state of Florida or a Fl. state court and what the state of Florida did with Casey Anthony has nothing to do with what a federal court might do with the Queen of the Pacific.

Why seal the deal?  Is that standard procedure in federal court?  It is almost as if they are trying to cause her problems and keep her out of the drug game when she gets home by releasing the info.

DD,
I stand corrected, you're right about that.

Mexico City. It's a permanent deal now for the deportees to be sent there instead of just across the border.

I know her case is different than those being caught trying to enter illegally but a deportee is a deportee right.
