Dámaso López “El Licenciado” Pleads Guilty in the US

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Vanguardia


This Friday, Sept 28 in a United States Federal court, Dámaso López Núñez, alias  ''El Licenciado'' and presumed successor of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera  as a head of the Sinaloa Cartel, pleaded guilty to drug crimes in a US court.

After accepting his guilt, the sentence is expected to be handed down at the end of November, with a penalty of between 10 years in prison and life imprisonment.

Known as "El Licenciado", Dámaso López Núñez was chief of security and deputy director at Puente Grande Prison, a high security prison from which he helped escape to ''El Chapo'' Guzmán in January 2001.

López Nuñez and a group of former commanders of the Judicial Police of Sinaloa arrived to take charge of security in the prison and create an environment for ''El Chapo'' to spread a network of corruption that eventually allowed the escape.





The drug lord, Dámaso López pleaded guilty for having trafficked drugs to the United States, being one of the leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel and being part of it for 15 years.

The hearing was held in a court of the state of Virigina and the details of his next hearing where he will be sentenced remain unknown, however he could get at least 10 years in prison to life imprisonment, as well as the payment of a fine of $10,000,000, ie ten million US dollars.

López Núñez, a lawyer by profession, was extradited to the United States on July 6 after his capture by Mexican authorities. He was arrested at his lavish apartment building in Mexico City with out a shot being fired.

This capture triggered a wave of armed confrontations and homicides in Sinaloa, as the struggles for the throne of the drug empire raged.

According to the United States Department of the Treasury, Damaso Lopez became a great drug capo and trafficking lieutenant of the Sinaloa cartel after helping "El Chapo" to make his first escape from that maximum security prison.

                                             "El Mini Lic" while still enjoying his freedom

There was a relationship between Dámaso López and "El Chapo'' so close that they even became compadres: Dámaso López Serrano, known as the ''Mini Lic'', is the godson of Guzmán Loera, who turned himself into to US Custom officials and the DEA at the Mexicali / Calexico Border crossing in July 2017 after being in hiding for months , apparently in fear of his life. "El Mini Lic", as he was known, formed an armed wing of the Sinaloa Cartel and was allegedly behind much of the violence in the areas stated below. As a "Narco-junior" he often flaunted his extravagant lifestyle via social media. 

The US authorities accuse him , Damaso Lopez, senior, ie, of conspiring with others to import cocaine, between 2003 to 2016 and the Justice Department reminded him today during the hearing of the sentence the government will seek to impose on him.

"El Licenciado" was the head of one of the four fractions of the Cartel, he is considered responsible for the violence generated in the municipalities of Culiacán, Navolato and Cosalá, as well as in the state of Baja California Sur.

    8. I think if they were to get deported back to Mexico if they didn't become protected witnesses, once sentences were done, they'd get wacked on the spot. That's how you know the Chapitos do hold weight!! They made dad get busted and son run for his life!! Chapo put in too much work for his empire to fall into someone else's hands that weren't his families.

  3. Not as courageous as they wish others to see them. No shots fired, hiding out, turning themselves in to authorities (presumably for safety from their enemies). Enjoy your prison cell and don't drop the soap.

    1. Because the U.S wants money, Zetas hardly push any dope their source of income is kidnapping stealing and charging plaza fees to civilians. They're not millionaire drug dealers although the organization does push weight its microscopic. One trafficker from any organization easily pushes more weight than most of the zeta organization. They're wacky jack6

    2. They have no assets to go after. No major threat.

  6. I wonder why Mini Lic didn’t go to the US and hide out until caught. I’m sure they weren’t looking for him in Wisconsin or some place like that. He had enough money to be on the run for a while.

  16. I am not sure of this but when the sentencing comes around the judge is going to look at this guy and think "A director at a prison? Taking bribes from murderers? This was supposed to be a pillar of enforcement of justice in Mexican society?
    To be awarded a light sentence? I shall wait and see...

    1. This exact person is the reason Mexico is so hyper-Violent. I mean maybe he didn't have a choice seeing as He probably would have died if he turned down Chapo. But instead he created a Mordern day Robbin hood for kids to grow up too...
