 A former governor of Aguascalientes has been sentenced to six years in jail for embezzlement and misuse of power but he won’t serve any time.

However, Luis Armando Reynoso Femat will be required to reimburse the public treasury by forfeiting bail of 12 million pesos.

The case was based on Reynoso’s instructions in 2008 that funds be provided to the state’s health institute for the purchase of a 13.8-million-peso scanner. But the scanner never materialized.

Its purchase from a company called Logística y Asesoría Comercial SA de CV was a simulation intended to divert the funds to a purpose other than what had been intended, according to the case against Reynoso.

He won’t serve jail time because he had obtained a court ruling providing him with protection from incarceration, known as an amparo. But he will have to forfeit his bail.


At least three other civil servants have also been linked to the crime. The former state treasurer, now a fugitive, is among them, as well as the former chief of the health institute, who spent four months in prison before being released on bail, and who died last year.

A less senior official was jailed in 2012 and was released in the middle of last year.

The former governor, a member of the National Action Party who held office from 2004 until 2010, will be required to pay restitution amounting to the difference between the bail amount and the value of the scanner.

Bottom line is no jail time, no fine, just pay back what he was convicted of  embezzling (and his 12 million bond can be applied to  the 13,800 million the government paid for scanner but never received.    Just give back what you stole and you can go home. .

  9. La chaky has two apartments worth 5 million dollars each, plus the boats and many houses on el DF, a federal senatorship for her daughter, a federal congress.an ship for her grandson or sompim and millions of dollars in the bank, she robbed for about 40 years,
    --former governor femat gets to keep 2 million pesos of the 14 million he stole, and they were worth about 12 pesos per dollar when he stole them, now he pays devalued pesos, worth about 8 million, BUT THIS IS NOT FEMAT'S ONLY FRAUD OR CRIME OR THE ONLY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS HE TOOK.
    --His son "El Princeso" FEMAT also helped a lot...
