           US court sentences Edgar Veytia, former Nayarit prosecutor, to 20 years in prison
The Brooklyn Federal Court declared this conviction for the alleged involvement of the former official in a drug trafficking case.

The US authorities allege that a violent drug cartel that trafficked cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine to the United States bribed the official from 2013 until he was arrested in 2017.

Edgar Veytia , a former Nayarit prosecutor , was sentenced by New York judge Carol Bagley  to serve a 20-year prison sentence , as well as to pay one million dollars ($1,00,000) after pleading guilty to being a drug trafficking participant. He pled guilty to participating in an international conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana in exchange for receiving large bribes.

                         Veytia used his position in the Government to facilitate drug trafficking. 
The former Nayarit prosecutor, Edgar Veytia , was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison in the United States for a drug trafficking case . Veytia, 49, was sentenced in federal court in Brooklyn .

Veytia told the judge that he made a mistake in accepting bribes in exchange for using wiretapping and other police tools to protect the drug cartel.

During the hearing held on Thursday, Veytia was pointed out for using his position in the state government of Nayarit to facilitate drug trafficking to the United States by "a violent Mexican drug cartel ."

When working with the cartel, Veytia used the Mexican Police to protect drug charges, intimidate and harm rival drug traffickers. He also used his role as attorney general to obstruct justice when the cartel members were arrested, ” said Peter C. Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of National Security Investigations, New York Field Office (HSI).

"I received a monthly payment from the narcos": 
On the case, the United States Department of Justice  pointed out that Veytia served the H-2 Cartel ,  led by Juan Francisco Patron Sanchez . This criminal organization paid a monthly fee to the sentenced person for taking various actions in his favor, such as:

To free members and associates of the cartel after being arrested for offenses related to drug trafficking, instruct  police officers to attack their rivals.  In addition, he notes that Veytia helped the H-2 Cartel to cover up the murder of a rival drug trafficker in October 2015. Veytia admitted during his trial that he made arrangements to prevent the arrest of drug traffickers or to be released from custody.

He has US and Mexican nationality and lived from time to time in San Diego.

He did not detail which organizations he supported, but it is believed that the Sinaloa Cartel, led by Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán , was one of them.

Veytia was sentenced in the same courtroom in NY where  "El Chapo" Guzman Loera recieved his life sentence. “When ... Guzman was sentenced to life imprisonment, we warned that there were more days of reckoning to come. The sentence imposed on this corrupt Mexican government official makes this just such a day,” U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement.

“Neither Mexican cartel leaders nor corrupt officials who assist them should sleep well tonight," he added. "We are coming for you.”

  7. He’s the one who flipped on H2 and let CJNG in. That’s what the mantas read after H2 was killed. H2 was his neighbor I believe, or lived in the same neighborhood

  9. Well, well , well! This POS had "dual" citizenship which he exploited. I have always been against this "stupid" loophole in our laws. IMO, a person must "only" hold allegiance to "one" nation at a time.

    Crooks like this exploit their dual citizenship status for criminal and/or anti-USA machinations! Gringos are so stupid... I've told many to their face.

  10. What was the story behind Veytia getting popped? Veytia was supporting Los Hs from 2014 until 2017, when he allegedly sold the Nayarit plaza to CJNG and multiple leaders of Los Hs went down (H2, H9, H18). It would seem Los Hs were in conflict with CJNG, but in February of this year H3 (brother of H2) was captured in Jalisco. More specifically, H3 was captured in Tlajomulco, which points to two possibilities; either H3 was there for a meeting with CJNG, or H3 was there meeting with CNP. To me, CNP seems like the more obvious choice given the bad blood between Los Hs and CJNG, and that Aguila Beltran is apparently leading CNP along with Cholo. Anyways, I’ve always felt that Veytia getting arrested had something to do with him selling the plaza in 2017 and the ensuing violence.

    1. Selling the plasa, without telling any "former owners", is not a nice thang to do, no wonder the motherfacker Veytia got nailed, clavado, cogido y arremangado on the US without room to wiggle unless he becomes a protected witness and delivers a governor or two and a president... and there is that businessman and former presidente Municipal of Fresnillo, Zacatecas Benjamin Medrano, who used to do Business from Cd Juarez to Nayarit and last became a federal Congressman under EPN and PRI.

  15. In these cases it is never revealed how much money was paid in bribes. How come?

    Maybe because it would prompt uncomfortable questions like: which bank took the money and the governments don't want to have to slap the wrist of some banker.

    After all drugs is a problem for poor people which is very profitable for bankers.

  20. His clandestine mass graves, extortion, kidnappings for ransom and stolen properties in cahoots with other Nayarit governments are being left behind, out of the picture and unpunished for the next 20 years and prolly forever but it is something having Veytia in prison.
    Eso le pasa por andar ahi de caliente.
