Dámaso López Núñez, "El Licenciado" sentenced to life

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat


Life in prison

Dámaso López Núñez, "El Licenciado" the man who got El Chapo out of prison in his laundry cart escape has been sentenced today to life in the federal court of Alexandria, Virginia, after pleading guilty.

López Núñez apologized to the people of the United States in his court statement. 

His pre-sentencing report recommending life was filed on Wednesday. 

In his previous plea agreement he was given a possible offer of a three level down grade.  [Both documents are posted below]

On its face the life sentence mean just that, that the 51 year old will leave prison in a pine box.

Chapo Trial

This becomes relevant and interesting when connecting to the Chapo trial.  López Núñez  was expected to be a strong cooperative witness against his former boss.

So now what?  If this is really the deal, then why expose him to harm in prison by testifying?  Well….what if this is a ploy?  He can now testify before jurors and declare that he was there for the right reasons.  That he didn’t get a free pass, he received a life sentence.  That would give great credibility to his testimony.

Then after the trial his sentence could be adjusted.  Impossible?  Nope, it has happened before.

The life without parole prison sentence, for AFO cartel leader Francisco Javier Arellano Félix, was reduced to 23 1/2 years because he’s provided crucial information to the government that has led to prosecutions in the U.S. and Mexico, according to federal court records.

Cooperation

Judge Larry Burns, of San Diego District Court, said prosecutors had outlined Arellano’s “extensive post-sentencing cooperation,” providing information on both cartel figures and the public officials who worked with them on both sides of the border.

In the case of Dámaso López Núñez, who knows.  Possibly inside a document filed right after his sentencing hearing today, would provide some answers.

But that document, Docket 40, is sealed.

  1. Damn, I didn't know you could still reduce your sentence after it was already given to you. At least not in a case like this one (life in prison).

    He's definitely going to spill the beans.

    2. A Rule 35 motion is a motion filed by a prosecutor under the authority granted by Rule 35(b) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. It asks a court to reduce a previously-imposed sentence based on "substantial assistance" by a defendant provided after sentencing.

    3. I guess Chapo’s defense could explain the Tigrillo precedent but it’s all just postulating so the jury will take it with a big grain of salt.

    4. This highly trained Keyboard Warrior has a unhealthy obsession with the Guzman family. If anyone actually thinks 006 is legit I can’t help but laugh.

    5. El Bravo is rolling in his grave having 006 claim that they were brothers in arms.

    1. There's no plot or chess game here. They are all heading to Florence for life. The chapo trial is just a public display to punish someone for America's drug problem. Once your flown north on that DEA leer jet, the fat lady has sung...

    3. Agreed to be extradicted.

  6. He’s probably willing to take life so long as his son and family get off free.

    I wonder if it was worth it in the end. He’s gonna die in prison and his family can never go back to their home state without getting murdered.

  8. Chapo's cooked on his name alone. They don't need damaso's testimony. So nieve to think chapo will get a fair trial. He's public enemy #1 in a country ravaged by a heroin epidemic. And every juror there knows exactly who he is. If anything, this damask sentencing should just solidify that if u are a Mexican cartel member extradited to the US, it's OVER for u.end if story...

    1. Ooh not so fast my friend. Remember a criminal by the name of whitey bulger? He was as high if not a higher regarded criminal turned "informant, or snitch". Somehow he was beaten to death with padlocks and socks just weeks ago. No one is ever 100 percent safe inside.

  17. The US Government knows what it’s doing either scare Damaso into saying whatever they want since it will look good in his part and then reduce his sentence or like the post said make his statement more Creditable and then reduce his sentence but no one will be doing life besides job no once snitches for free in the world man come on!!!! It’s all a game and chapo knows it there trying to get everything out the way so the day if he ever does end up in Parison mayo wont get extradited

    1. 7:03 that's sad wishing death on the next man. .You don't even know these people... I wouldn't wish death or prison to my enemy. .. You need counseling and medical attention.. Good thing that hate is a disease and it's curable.. 😂

    2. 9:49 am i kind of agree with you about wishing death on someone you dont really know but i think you are going tooooo far saying you wouldnt wish death or prison for your enemies...You must have play enemies or simply people who disagree with you because if you had enemies trying to murder you and you didnt want them dead for whatever strange,You should at least want them imprisoned so you could feel a little safer.You need counseling because your heart is way to kind..Your Family should fear as long as you are head of household. You sound like you have 0 backbone..

  20. This made me think of Nicky Barnes...

    After Barnes cooperated with the government by working as an informant, Rudolph Giuliani sought a reversal of Barnes' life sentence. Eventually, Barnes was resentenced to 35 years.

    1. I think lics sentence is a point of reference for the jury...if this guy who wasnt near Mochomo's level as far as product and profits or experience,gets life how can you not convict chapo? shit life seems easy compared with how much more crime has been committed JGL than this rookie. I wouldn't brag that America forces em to play ball. if u wanna use a sports analogy u could say that the U.S. is forcing them to play but the U.S. is trying to throw the pigskin around and it's like they dont know the game is futbol not football. I wonder if they realize that they safe kept chente for 9yrs in Chicago and it looks like they're gonna let him go home only to become a bigger and better trafficker than chapo ever was.

    2. which leads to a more interesting question...if mayo is the puppet master it looks like he is. where does that leave the chapitos? I'm sure they dont like the fact that mayo threw his compadre under the bus to get back chente. but mayo is the one keeping them alive at the moment. Anyone wanna place any bets how long they live after papi's sentencing? I give em about 1 to 6 months.

    3. @11:50 Mayo threw no one under the bus. These guys know what they are getting into and that anyone caught will cooperate. Just look at the Arellano brothers where one of them literally told the other one to plead guilty because he was gonna testify against him if he chose to go to trial. Chapo’s blaming mayo as we speak while on trial, this is how it goes they all know that
