The Second Unitary Tribunal of the Third Circuit, located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, handed down a sentence of 40 years imprisonment to Rafael Caro Quintero and Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo after they were found guilty for the crimes of kidnapping and second-degree murder. It thus ordered their reapprehension, the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) announced on Thursday, January 22nd, 2015.
The PGR said Caro Quintero (aka “The Narco of Narcos”), still has 11 years and seven months to serve, while Fonseca Carrillo has 10 years and two months. Caro Quintero was released on Aug. 9, 2014, under orders from the First Collegiate Tribunal, who absolved him after he served 28 years for killing an U.S. DEA agent.
The U.S. Government expressed “extreme disappointment” for the 2014 decision of his release and vowed to bring Caro Quintero to justice, offering a $5 million reward; Interpol has also asked for help from anyone with information that might help locate him.
The collegiate tribunal that released Caro Quintero said his case should be tried by a common, rather than a federal judge; the First Room of the National Supreme Court agreed to dismiss the appeal that allowed Caro Quintero’s release. The appeal was returned to the penal Collegiate Tribunal in Jalisco, but this long-time leader of drug trafficking in Mexico has already been at large for more than six months. In Mexico, Caro Quintero faces an order of presentation with purposes of extradition.
