Los Zeta's money laundering trial scheduled April 15

Borderland Beat

The trial of Jose Treviño Morales, brother of  Miguel Angel Treviño Morales (Z-40) leader the Mexican cartel Los Zetas is now scheduled to start at 9:00 am on April 15, 2013 in Austin, Texas. 
The Treviño brothers, who managed to establish a prominent horse breeding operation in the United States, Tremor Enterprises, which allowed them to launder millions of dollars in drug money, according to current and former federal law enforcement officials. The operation amounted to a foothold in the United States for one of Mexico’s most dangerous criminal networks, the officials said.

The Justice Department moved against Tremor last July, sending several helicopters and hundreds of law enforcement agents to the company’s stables in Ruidoso and its ranch in Oklahoma. José Treviño, his wife and five associates were taken into custody later in the day, and a total of 15 people were charged, the authorities said.

Miguel Ángel Treviño, 42, and another brother, Omar, 36, were among those charged. They remain at large in Mexico. Omar Treviño is also a high-ranking member of the Zetas, and an F.B.I. affidavit filed in United States District Court describes him as participating in the money laundering.

The affidavit said the Zetas funneled about $1 million a month into buying quarter horses in the United States. The authorities were tipped off to Tremor’s activities in January 2010, when the Zetas paid more than $1 million in a single day for two broodmares, the affidavit said.

Jose Trevino Morales remains in federal custody as a flight risk pending trial on allegations that he was involved in a money laundering scheme centered on an Oklahoma horse ranch.

Trevino has pleaded not guilty to a federal money laundering charge.

Trevino’s Dallas-based attorney David Finn has argued that authorities are trying to “tar and feather” Trevino because his brothers were allegedly involved in the Mexican cartel. Both are also indicted.

Previously U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Lane said no evidence suggested Jose Trevino was a risk to the community, though he thought Trevino could possibly flee to Mexico.

  7. Now the tables have been turned on the Z's. The U.S.D.O.J. is going to be doing the extorting now. Along with the defense team of Mr. Treviño Morales. However, there will not be and justice for all, since all the top gov. officials in Mx. who colluded with the Treviño brothers names are clearly not listed any where near the indictment

    1. That is very true. I still don't think you'll see treviño getting off on a tecnicality. Do you think he'll get a long sentence?

  10. This hasn't been in the news for ages. It seems mostly just BB looking out for what is going on with it. After it starts, we probably won't hear anything until the sentencing. I bet I'm right.

  11. Ahhhhhh! Big huge bold F on my part! I know Z-40 isn't 38! Enough of me trusting the NY Times. I need to wake up and die right! I'll go adjust it now. thank you and have a good evening. Bye

  14. Ah 6:29 PM -I was just warned about this and told not to bother with it.

    Really good for you, you got the point, superliminal!, feel good about yourself. Comprehension 100% and a gold star for you too. All this info. is an update of a delay and a new trial date, yes April 15 as the title clearly spelled out. And some background for perspective and links too. Believe it or not there are people out there who don't know everything about this case. This is for them.

    Yes, number 12 was scratched out then in the NYT's article and it is skipped presently in the March 7th. Astute. I mentioned that in parentheses. Who cares? I don't. Obviously you do. If I didn't mention it, someone else, if not you, would have. So, I did so first. BFD.

  15. One thing about the Federal courts in the US. If you don't give up alot of info., it's 25 years for money laundering. Couldn't happen to a better family! Peace to all innocents. Texas Grandma.

    1. Yea and federal prisons have no parole system

  16. Thanks for the article! Two things:
    1) Why was it delayed again? Anyone know?
    2) My prediction is that they will be sent to jail, but for only a few years. Even though as @2:40 pointed out it IS Texas, my bet is that they will go through with proof on part of it, but come up with some technicality to prevent a longer sentence. They wouldn't just let him go because it's a high profile case, but they won't give him a long sentence because there's an element of corruption. That's my prediction, what do other people think?

  17. Whatever time they get if it's federal they will serve at least 90 % of the sentence.

  18. do you think #12 is Lazca? it was filed on 05/30/2012 prior to his "death". They do mention him early on but not thereafter in the indictment. if you're the prosecutor you want to get as many big fish as you can. are they delaying in hopes of catching miguel trevino?

  19. Can't believe someone would kill/torture people for money and power. That's low. A lot of innocent people and a lot of families suffering.
    I wish all the weight of the law upon all these guys.

  20. # 12 is Juan Gabino Aleman a horse trainer from Los Alamitos
