A judge has sentenced each of five members of a band of human traffickers, sexual offenders and murderers to 697 years and six months in jail for human and drug trafficking as well as femicide.
The unprecedented sentences, which include fines of $839,000 pesos (US$51,000) to be paid in reparation to the families of the 11 victims, were handed down in a courtroom in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
The five men used various means to lure young women into working as prostitutes and drug mules; when they were no longer useful or failed to do as they were told, they were killed.
A mountain of evidence including 176 testimonies, reams of documentation and 30,000 photographs detailed the modus operandi and the participation by each of the accused in the deaths of the women.
One owned a model agency, another a clothing store and a third an abarrotes store which served as “hooks” to entice young women looking for work. Girls aged between 15 and 25 years were recruited as sex workers or drug mules.
The 11 women had been reported missing in 2009 and 2010; their bodies were found in the Arroyo del Navajo, 40 kilometers away in the Juárez Valley.
Another four men are awaiting trial in connection with the same case.
