Larry Hernandez, singer of narco corridos was extradited to South Carolina.
Last Wednesday, October 14 at 16:00 hrs (4:00) Hernandez was released for the extradition, to Newberry County S.C.
Hernandez, 38, was arrested on September 28 at the Ontario International airport in Southern California, as he waited to board a plane for a flight to Colorado for an appearance in Aurora.
The singer had been held at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga California, which is in the county of San Bernardino.
Notable on search results for county of San Bernardino is that he was released to “SELF”. I am uncertain if that is typically what is designated on a extradition, but it would seem more appropriate that the release in cases of extradition, would indicate whichever authority is responsible for the transfer. Perhaps someone with knowledge on the subject, can weigh in.
He was extradited to South Carolina to face kidnapping and assault charges.
A phone call to Newberry County Jail by Borderland Beat reveals that although Hernandez was released 6 days ago, he has not arrived in Newberry as of 8:30 AM South Carolina time today.
The Information desk officer was surprised when BB gave him information obtained on the San Bernardino County inmate website that Hernandez was extradited almost a week ago. When asked he confirmed that Hernandez would go to the County Facility (sheriff’s) as that is the sole detention center in Newberry County. BB was hoping to have his Newberry mug shot accompany this post but since he has yet arrived or gone through the booking process, there are none.
The officer guessed who we were inquiring about before we asked, he noted that they have received over 100 inquires in the past few days. The Newberry County website is under construction necessitating phone calls for information.
When asked what would cause a delay of 6 days to travel to Newberry after release from California, the officer seemed perplexed about the delay, when BB suggested perhaps he was in a facility outside the county for a cause such as protective custody, he suggested Hernandez may have been a part of an interstate transfer, that may cause a delay after a stop in another state, while waiting for other inmates being transferred to South Carolina. He stated that sometimes they can be held in Arkansas or another southern state for a day or so.
Whatever the reason, we will continue to check on this story.
Hernandez’ alleged victim is accused of fraud
In a strange twist, in an already strange saga, five Newberry businesses
men paid a visit to the Sheriff
office of the South Carolina city. They came bearing what they claim is proof
of fraud by the Larry Hernandez’ kidnapping victim, Jose Andrade, in the case
against the singe.
Restaurant owner Onesimo Reyes accuses Andrade of trickery of property ownership, in exchange for a loan. “We found out several of us had the same ownership (deed) title with different money amounts, I’m talking about 20,000 dollars.” He says the 5 grouped together and decided to sue Andrade.
The men provide services at the venue from which Larry Hernandez and others allegedly kidnapped Andrade.
