Coahuila businessman charged in ongoing money laundering investigation

Rolando González Treviño was arrested Oct. 31, 2014, in Las Vegas by deferal agents, He is the brother os a media mgnate from Coahuila and is facing charges in a wide-ranging probe into money allegedly stoelmn from the state later laundered in San Antonio and South Texas. 

Rolando González Treviño was arrested Oct. 31, 2014, in Las Vegas by deferal agents, He is the brother os a media mgnate from Coahuila and is facing charges in a wide-ranging probe into money allegedly stoelmn from the state later laundered in San Antonio and South Texas. 

In meetings at the Club at Sonterra in Stone Oak and at the Coahuila governor's mansion in Saltillo, Mexico, in 2009, officials from the border state and a businessman with San Antonio ties discussed using stolen money to buy media properties, according to a federal indictment unsealed Monday.

That spring, the conspirators paid nearly $2 million to Rolando González Treviño, a Mexican businessman who owns several pieces of real estate in San Antonio and a TV station in Eagle Pass, the indictment says.

Federal agents in Las Vegas arrested González as he stepped of a commercial flight with his family Friday night. He's charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to transport stolen property and conspiracy to launder money.

González faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the money laundering and wire fraud charges, which are the most serious. Prosecutors are also asking for a $1.8 million judgment against him.

His lawyers said the charges were kept secret all weekend. González denies doing anything wrong.

“He didn't do what he's accused of,” said San Antonio attorney Brandon Hudson.

González's arrest is the latest development in a sprawling investigation into allegations that money stolen from the state of Coahuila was laundered in San Antonio and elsewhere in South Texas. A half-dozen people have been charged in the case, and prosecutors have moved to seize tens of millions of dollars in bank accounts and real estate.

In 2006, an unidentified co-conspirator ordered Coahuila government officials to pay 100 million pesos, or more than $7 million, of state money to another unidentified co-conspirator, according to the indictment. Around the same time, the first co-conspirator told a government official that he wanted to buy media outlets in Coahuila.

The outlets aren't identified, but the indictment alleges that in February 2009, members of the conspiracy traveled to San Antonio in a private plane to meet with González at the golf club. González and his family own radio and television companies in Mexico, and the indictment alleges that he discussed with the co-conspirators the sale of media properties for 25 million pesos, or about $1.8 million.

A month later, a Coahuila state official met with two of his employees at the governor's mansion in the capital of Saltillo where another co-conspirator gave them bank account numbers for González, the indictment alleges. In April and May 2009, González received a series of wire transfers from private companies in Mexico totaling about $1.8 million, according to the indictment.

Court records don't explain which media companies were purchased or if the money that was allegedly stolen from the state of Coahuila was wired to González.


González comes from a prominent family in Coahuila. A brother, Roberto Casimiro González Treviño, is a media mogul who critics say supported former Gov. Humberto Moreira and his Institutional Revolutionary Party.

Another brother, Raúl González Treviño, was Moreira's spokesman in San Antonio. His son Raul González Fernandez pleaded guilty last month in federal court in San Antonio to a drug conspiracy charge.

The family has been caught up in a U.S. investigation into allegations that state officials and unscrupulous businessmen laundered tens of millions of dollars in San Antonio.

During Moreira's term in office from 2005 to 2011, the state government racked up nearly $3 billion in debt.

Roberto Casimiro González, Raúl González and Moreira haven't been charged with any crimes.

Two people have pleaded guilty in the investigation so far, including Coahuila's former treasurer, Héctor Javier Villarreal.

Villarreal  (left)pleaded guilty in September to one count of money laundering conspiracy and one count of internationally transporting of stolen money. He was accused in court documents of taking out loans on the state's credit and handing out government contracts in exchange for bribes.

Villarreal agreed to turn over $6.5 million in bank accounts that he controlled

Charges are pending against Jorge Juan Torres López, the former interim governor of Coahuila.

Rolando González owns a television company in Mexico and in recent years has expanded his business into Texas. A limited liability company he controls owns a TV station in Eagle Pass. Other companies he controls own San Antonio properties including empty lots, a house on the far North Side and a small office building on the Northwest Side.

He and other family members have purchased more than a dozen properties in San Antonio since 2007.

  1. Run for office, loot the treasury. Seems like there are NO honest politicians at all in Mexico. They all lie, cheat, steal and are so deceitful yet the people elect them, I mean the cartels appoint them and then anoint them for safe passage and turning a blind eye. It was only a matter of time before they caught up to that rat fuck. They steal from the government and buy personal property with the peoples money and when arrested the government very rarely seizes any thing in Mexico. In the USA, everything is as good as gone.

  6. The cabal of criminals in the story shows me that "dirty" money from illicit Mexican criminal acts (drugs, extortion, kidnapping, fraud, smuggling people , prostitution, etc) is a part of the US economy. This fact suggests that there are "American" counterparts such as banks, realtors, and possibly politicians and Lawyers "in" on the lucrative corrupt practices involved in money laundering.

    I hope the American crooks tied to the above acts are duly invited , tried, and convicted to prison.

  11. "Moreira hasn't been charged" what a joke...
    --Come think of it, is there any chance that from killing z40's nephew to provoke the revenge killing of lalo that served as an excuse to end and finish el lazca...
    --To silence z3 about his and the zetas relationship with miguel angel osorio chong.
    --to get meritorious bertie boy out of the way to an influnetial secretary of state of governation, of the interior, mining or security...
    --meretricious bertie boy by himself, did not need any scandals, it wouldhave been stupid...
    --miguel angel osorio chong, needed the scandal, got it done and benefitted from it, immensely, to get position on government...
    --That fell instead on the lap of chinese MIGUEL ANGEL OSORIO CHONG, who has proven to be quite adept and dedicated to the state and international satrapy with the customary butcher practices of the halcones, the kaibiles and all the other quasi-nazi organizations from the SCHOOL OF THE ASSASSINS that have been paid for and trained by US horse's asses???
    --The government of coahuila "owes three billion dollars"... ONE MILLION PESOS gets recovered here, another there, just to appear to be doing something to save enrique pena nieto and his PRI's face and ass...
    --while they keep trying to save mexico one massacre at a time!!!

  14. If you closely pay attention to details in regards to the people involved in the power structure in Mexico, some of these cartel criminals and anybody with power/wealth, are probably related. This man has the last name of Trevino, on the maternal side, which also happens to be the last name of Zeta leaders Z-40 and Z-42. All tve investigations into the corruption in Mexico is of no avail as long as the same party and it's members remain in power. As long as el PRI remains in power, not a damn will change. The objective of PRI politicians is to enrich themselves with the political offices they win by looting, plundering, and pillaging the government coffers, not to better the lives of the citizens of their nation. If that is what the people of Mexico want then that's what they will get. I just don't see the change in the horizon.

    1. agree with the second half of your post, but the second half might be off...in a country with millions of Martinezes, Ramirezes, Trevino's and Aguirre's, there are bound to be some coincidences

    2. COINCIDENCES? in places where governors, mayors work with criminals? what a joke.

    3. You call Mr. Gonzalez a rat when not one of you knows the whole story. It just goes to prove how biased and ignorant the whole lot of you are. The money was stolen from the people of the state of Coahuila then why is the US grabbing it instead of returning it to its rightful owners? The real rat here is Humberto Moreira Valdes and I don't see anyone indicting him or the real power behind the throne, his brother now standing governor Ruben Moreira.
      Rolando Gonzalez is innocent of the corruption that has been going on since the Moreira Brothers came into power. On another note, I didn't know that anyone had to do a background search on the potential buyer before sellling them property.

    1. when will you ever learn that generalizations lead to ignorance, racism and bigotry? You come across as an idiot. A complete idiot.

      to judge a race of 97% good, hardworking, caring people, based on the actions of the malevolent 3% is ridiculous, immature and plain stupid.

    2. you are a case in point that ignorance is not bliss...usually ignorant folks are happily stupid because they don't know better. however, when it comes to racists, i take consolation in knowing that their hatred keeps them from enjoying life. hopefully you conquer that hatred and ignorance one day, such that you no longer make stupid comments ... i usually don't feed the trolls, but i couldn't help myself from telling you, i know you're a miserable fuk, regardless of your ethnicity.
