If he is no longer in prison, where is Serafin Zambada Ortiz?

Lucio republished and translated from Rio Doce posted also by Siskiyoukid


 Note:  Although it is doubtful that the US Government is unaware of the location of Serfin Zambada, it does appear he no longer is calling prison his home.  He has been wiped out in the prison locator.  If  Zambada Ortiz is in the witness protection program, he is being held at one of the 7 WITSEC custody units within the federal prison system. Further information is posted on the second page of this post. -Lucio-

Rio Doce is reporting that after agreeing to forfeit to  the United States Government,  $250,000, revenue earned by drug trafficking, Serafín Zambada Ortiz is still waiting to be sentenced by a federal judge in the Southern District of California from the USDOJ, which is scheduled for May 22, 2015 of this year.
                        
The money seized during his acceptance of guilt, in a plea agreement that took place on September 27,  was to be delivered in cash to the United States Government, although the Department of Justice of United States (USDOJ) would not specify who made delivery of the money. 

"In those cases, who delivered the money are the defense attorneys of the accused," said Luis Carrillo, who is an expert in criminal cases and has his offices in Los Angeles, California. 

The transfer of money and property is part of an agreement made between Zambada Ortiz, and federal attorneys with the Southern California Prosecutor, in which the accused also agreed to cooperate with prosecutors to dismantle the organization that his father, Ismael Zambada, El Mayo, who commands the organization, and to address other members of the organization of the Sinaloa Cartel, including their leaders. 


Eye of the Ant

Although officially Zambada Ortiz is incarcerated in the prison's maximum-security Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in San Diego, sources of the penitentiary system of the United States (BOP) pointed out that they no longer have him in their power and that they do not know is location. 

According to the information obtained by Ríodoce, it was on July 3, three months before he changed his plea to guilty, that Zambada Ortiz was removed  from prison by people of the USDOJ. 

MCC, located in downtown San Diego, is the same prison where Rodrigo Aréchiga Gamboa, founder of Los Antrax, the armed wing of the Sinaloa Cartel and an old guard of all the sons of Ismael El Mayo Zambada, is being held. 

However, for safety reasons, they never held Chino Antrax and Serafín Zambada together, and all that is known is that "it is very possible that Sera has become a witness protected by the agreements made with the USDOJ, to then be taken to a safe house and he only carries a bracelet with a GPS Locator".
No agency of the USDOJ could specify where Zambada Ortiz is: the DEA, BOP, or the US Marshals or FBI, who also failed to establish his whereabouts through the Freedom of Information Act (access to Information Act), arguing that "it would be violating confidentiality agreements that every prisoner has the right to in the United States". 

Negotiate: the last alternative

According to Jenia Turner, law professor of the Dedman School of Law, in Dallas Texas, agreements made "under the table" by the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) with people who face criminal charges, are common and occur all the time, especially in cases related to organized crime and drug trafficking. 

"In some cases the accused receives full judicial immunity, i.e. not even comes to be sentenced, in exchange for information that helps locate people in your organization, which in many cases is determining to derail the criminal organization," said Turner. 

The academic also added; once people of an organization are arrested, the protected witness confronts the accused, and testifies against him. It is part of the agreement in exchange for a lesser sentence, or even total immunity. 

It was not the case of El Chino Antrax,the former head of Los Antrax who decided to declare war on the United States and to fight his legal status in the courts.

Zambada-Ortiz was arrested on November 20, 2013, as he tried to cross into the United States through Nogales Arizona. He transferred and was being held in a federal prison in San Diego, the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), and after being presented before the magistrate Karen Crawford  of the Southern District of California , Zambada Ortiz pleaded not guilty to charges of drug trafficking. He changed his plea on 27 September 2014, and accepted guilt on all charges. 

He was removed from that prison on July 3, 2014 and taken to an unknown site. In theory, his case only awaits the sentencing of the judge, scheduled for May 22nd.

    2. What is your point? a federal district judge is appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate, which if you have to narrow it down makes a good living. Kids College Tuition? your silly, do more research on the wages of United States federal district judges & senators & top federal politicians.

  3. This means he is in detention elsewhere in the prison system going to another prison. Almost like an "in transit" status. He is still detained but this is how BOP relates to status. The meaning of "not in BOP custody" is that the US Marshall's service or another private contractor have him in their "custody" until he arrives at his new place of residence at his new prison or location. He may also have a court appearance somewhere and they use that as a status also. I went through this situation with my uncle many years ago.....simple in transit situation for court appearance or transfer to another facility. Check back tomorrow on the BOP locater or next week, there should be an update. If not, check the public database at the court where he made his plea in or he could be ratting out in another courthouse on another case. You all know his is a family of rats anyhow. Surprised they haven't killed the old man for having two rat snitches like his sons.

    3. Yea, BOP uses that as designation status. However, it is only for inmates/prisoners who have been sentenced. If Serafin has not been sentenced then that is his status. The comment is correct, the Marshall's service or another "contractor" could have him but he is probably in a MDC which is a Metropolitan Detention Center of which his status is also "not in BOP custody" since the designation in custody is physically inside a federal prison and only after sentencing. The MDC's inmates are not listed in the BOP inmate locater and one would have to call the Marshall's service or the actual detention facility to find the inmate. Also, the local court where he might be at too.

      Rest assured he has NOT BEEN RELEASED so everyone should stop their conspiracy theories. The US authorities are going to make sure he is going to do his time and his old man does not have the reach into the US to get his son released.

      Another option is that he is in government protection. For more info check this link and it explains in more detail the custody status for witness protection. Serafin is more than likely a full blooded 100% government informant as of this writing. USA ATTORNEY WITNESS PROTECTION

    4. I have a source who did some research and this is all off the record and I will not disclose the name or agency where the info was obtained or the person or position who forwarded the information to me. Serafin Zambada-Ortiz is officially secured in "protective custody" and is being detained in an "other" secure facility. The status since plea is also a government order he cannot be granted any bond pending sentencing and is providing the authorities with other information on activities concerning his knowledge and connections.

      Be well advised he is in custody and it is protective custody. When he is sentenced his status may still appear as "not in BOP custody" due in part to the information and people he is already giving up.

      Again, take this for what it is worth, but this source is well known and very reliable and accurate and is privy to information others cannot get.

      Rest assured, he like the Flores brothers signed his own death warrant.

    6. 12:13 pm whoever your supposed source is, they aren't telling you anything brilliant and amazing. I am a law student and I can say it is normal and usually part of any cooperation deal to give a new name, location and protection to the witness. You can have a friend in the same prison with this man, but he will never know. He will never appear on any prison database at this point. Searching is really a waste of time, I see others mentioning BOP which does not apply to this. He is high profile and the authorities are well aware of possible retaliation, making it important to protect him for future use as well as those detaining him. He is not just a regular inmate and will never be a part of any general population. Most like he will get 23 hour lockup with no outside contact other than an attorney and the agencies questioning him. Unlike Mexico, the US does not advertise individuals of high profile, disclosing their location and risking someone assisting in an escape attempt. That is why they should really consider handing over Guzman. Also this is why the capos fight to stay in Mexico. They realize with what they have done and being international criminals, they will never escape in the US.Depending on this guys sentence, he will serve all his time and if still alive will be released and most likely stay in the US. He will be in witness protection, but will be monitored heavily to assure he is not returning to organized crime. Butr that will probably be years from now. They may tell his sentence but you will not find out where he is going to serve it. The state that sentences him will definitely not be the state detaining him.

    7. This guy even if you in county they will never put in public records you are in protective custody and where especially him when he can get assasinated commong theres no search online that will trll you that lol this guys and his fake research or friend that told him or it could be his brother or dad are in protective custody with serafin that is how he knows

    8. By at the end of 2014 i mean the last days of december. Even though he dosent show up in records he is there.

  4. They can search and search, but will never find him. Many prisoners who assist the prosecutor, are granted some form of protection. I know of one guy who helped and was later sent to Canada to serve out their sentence under another name. Also there were a group of guys in Virginia who were spree killing. Two were brothers and got the death penalty. One of them was executed so far. The third guy was a friend and help to get them prosecuted. He got a reduce sentence, a name change and relocated to an undisclosed facility. Just becausae they cannot be found, doesn't mean they are not there. The USA is well aware of those prison inmate locators and when granted protection for assisting, you will not be in that system. Chances are, he is not even in California. Most high profile criminals, don't make that list anyway. Also California does not provide criminal records freely. It only provides a name and a facility. Some states you have to write in providing information as to your reason for requesting the information. Though these records are considered public records, there is some degree of privacy provided to the inmates in many states. My advice for anyone is not to probe too much.

    2. Yes, they have entirely separate facilities for people in this program. I have heard of one such facility in the Phoenix area called the Mesa Unit. At one time it housed Carlos Lehder and Sammy Gravano together. These guys are totally protected by the feds and you will not find them if they are in the program. Of course, Gravano was released from the program and fucked up again so he is currently listed.

  13. My boy is on phase 2 of this indictment. Serafin is ratting and has been since 2013. He's the reason for all of the captures that happened last year. 2014 they fught like 65 percent of the people on that sinaloa case and what a shock it was right after this dude got caught. Most of the guys I know from San Diego are pleading because serafin gave such rock solid evidence to the gov. that they have no chance.

    1. Throughout the history of the Witness Protection Program there hasn't been one protected witness causality. With that said, I am only speaking of the witnesses who stayed in the program the entire time and followed the rules. No matter how powerful people THINK the CDS is they are no match for the entire US Government let alone the USDOJ. Anyone who thinks otherwise are living in a complete fantasy world. I could careless either way but it's fun watching all the haters wishing death upon Serafin. Happy hunting CDS you have a shit load of rats to kill. The rats probably out number the active members at this point.

    2. @ 1:42 true but living in the witness protection program is not fun.. Chances are you will not be allowed to visit any of your family members even during funerals, or during holidays, birthdays etc..

      If your mother was on her deathbed, would you refuse to visit her?

      You also get to live the rest of your life with a name that isn't even yours and telling people a background that is a complete lie.. Sounds like a miserable life if you ask me.

    3. You are right 4:17pm but that's the true punishment for theses enabled narco kids and not the actual incarceration time. The US government want to strip you of everything that made you who you are as a narco. That is your punishment for your evil deeds. No longer will you be Serafin Zambada. You will be Dudley Do-right and like it. No more high life as a notorious narco's son. That is probably worse than any sentence Serafin could get besides the death penalty.

  17. IDK why this comes as a shock to so many. Historically the Sinaloa Cartel has enjoyed a fair amount of Mexican "corruption titty" ... Osiel Cardenas was enough to start a war in the Gulf. Sinaloa just takes it in stride. They must be used to betraying each other. Or does this mean all bets are off, and we'll see the same happen to Sinaloa?

  18. Los gringos no son Mexicanos.

    Some of you posters are UTTERLY ignorant of the level of INcorruptability of the EUA justice system. It is not perfect but it is not MEXICO entiende? The problem in the EUA is judges are too soft. I guarantee you when a jefe cartelista is frog-marched to and from his isolation cell in Florence supermax he is no longer El Rey.

  25. He's still in custody and will do time. His case and investigation is ongoing. The BOP has a federal inmate search for inmates once sentenced post trial/guilty plea. it does not show any information on inmates pending trial. If he is cooperating or not, no one will know until the indictment is unsealed. Which most likely be when everyone under investigation in relation with his case is arrested and tried. it can take several years since statute of limitations on those crimes are 5 years as long as the prosecutor does not get an extention granted by the judge.
