Osiel Cardenas Jr. Sentenced to 10 months in Supermax

Lucio R. Borderland Beat- Republished from San Antonio Express

“Today is my father’s birthday,” Cardenas Jr. said in Spanish. “Instead of going to visit him like they do every year, (my family) is here to support me.”




Osiel Cardenas Jr., 23, the son of one of Mexico’s most notorious drug lords, was sentenced Monday to 10 months in federal prison for attempting to smuggle military-grade ammunition into Mexico on New Year’s Eve.

Cardenas Jr. is the son of Osiel Cardenas, 48, who was the former leader of the Gulf Cartel and is now incarcerated in the reputed Supermax prison in Colorado for his role in orchestrating drug cartel activities along the Texas-Mexico border.

Cardenas Jr., a U.S. citizen born in Texas but raised in Mexico, had faced a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison. He was also fined $10,000 and will serve three years of supervised release.

Still, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen cautioned Cardenas Jr. against visiting Matamoros, Mexico, in the future.

“You’re at a crossroads … you need to decide which way you’re going to go,” Hanen told Cardenas Jr., also known as “Mini Osiel.” “If you follow down the same pathway as your father, you’re going to end up in the same place.”

Cardenas Jr. pleadedguilty in February to trying to sneak hundreds of rounds of bullets past U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Brownsville en route to Matamoros on Dec. 31, including 290 rounds of 9mm ammunition and 161 rounds of .223mm ammunition.


Authorities also found in his black 2015 Cadillac Escalade 29 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition and a pair of .233mm rifle magazines, which are designated as defense articles on the U.S. Munitions List. Cardenas Jr. admitted to having more than 14 grams of marijuana concealed in his underwear.

His mother, Celia Cardenas, penned a handwritten letter in Spanish to the court, apologizing for the conduct of her son, whom she called inexperienced and immature.

Hanen appeared to sympathize with Cardenas Jr., describing him as smart, yet burdened with the legacy of his infamous father, the cartel capo and mastermind behind the ultraviolent Los Zetas, which later split from the Gulf Cartel and became its own criminal organization.

In a heartfelt plea for leniency, Cardenas Jr., who has spent the past several months in solitary confinement for his safety, asked that Hanen allow him to spend the day with his family, who was in the courtroom.


“Today is my father’s birthday,” Cardenas Jr. said in Spanish. “Instead of going to visit him like they do every year, (my family) is here to support me.”

    1. They tell the feds what the feds want to here,... No one knows to what extent and who he snitched on.... If he snitched on the zetas then so be it they broke apart as soon as he went to prison,... So that did not hamper the familys relations in matamoros,... And yes i go to matamorors the family as well as the son are left alone no one dares and touches puts a finger on them ironic, if they were hated or thought as of snitches he would have been killed long time ago... Just for the escalade itself,... Non the less for snitching... But that is not the case untouchables in matamorors Garcia-Abregos, Guerras,... Cardenas-Guillens..... by the way para la jente de matamoros ponganse a trabajar y dejen a la poblacion en paz,... Dejen de quitar carros porfavor no es bueno para el negocio.... Ayuden a la comunidad y la comunidad desgraciadamente les ayudara... Literalmente arreglen las plazas y arrimen luz y agua y las gentes se haran de la vidta gorda..... Joden a la poblacion la poblacion les pagar igual... Simplemente su servidor matamorense

    2. I doubt, if he had snitched his entire family would have been dead, starting with Tormenta and the other Cardenas brothers. They are still operating the Cartel in some form or fashion.

  9. "You need to decide which way you’re going to go":

    Why would he choose to do anything other than be a drug trafficker if he knows he can traffic military grade weapons across the border and be released after only 10 months?

    If he were in a real country with a real judicial system they would not be that lenient.

  19. “You’re at a crossroads … you need to decide which way you’re going to go,” Hanen told Cardenas Jr.,
    Bull Chit ! He on a path to hell , he probably didnt understand a single word that judge told him . He will most likely end up dead within a few months after he guts out

  20. That's shows his father did not involve him in the family business cuz it's looks and sounds like he's yellow but by not having his father around lets him make poor decisions that's just the way it is!

  24. Nadien lo conoce como el mini osiel o más bien nadie le dice asi. Oso is a kid with it all at his disposal. Surrounded by many luxuries and a great mother and siblings. The kid was going to Matamoros to celebrate new years like they do every year. This kid knows nothing about the narco life he's just a grate kid that happens to have a capo as his father. Oso, todos en la familia estamos contigo. Todo va estar bien oso no se me desanimé campeón! They say the united states knows it all about the cartel. Well its obvious they don't because this kid does not traffic arms and has nothing to do with the so called cartel life THAT'S WHY THEY WHERE SO SOFT WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO HIS SENTENCE!!!!, they know the truth, he's a good kid that likes to hunt that's why he had bullets!

    1. I don't see a fucking kid I see a grown motherfucker .... even though I did think that's what the bullets were for ... and if he had everything at his disposal he wouldn't need to go to the u.s. to buy ammo he would just ask a golfita for some but I guess since the gulf cartel is running out of money and other supplies they didn't have enough to spare

      Oye pendejo, what is it? First you say "they say the United States knows it all about cartels. Well it's obvious they don't" then you say "they know the truth, he's a good kid that likes to hunt"

    3. The truth hear is that the government really just knows what they hear and are told about by snitches' and they have never heard about this kid being involved that's why they know THAT he has nothing to do with the drug trade...... Pendejo tu idiota por creer todo lo que lees. La verdad aquí es obvio! No saben ni madre todo lo que leen es una farsa. Solo por tener el mismo nombre de su padre quien armar un show. Por favor no hay necesidad para traficar armas o drogas.
