I received word last night Mayito Gordo was extradited.  Along with another person whose name I don’t yet have. 

He was in court today before Judge Michel Berg in San Diego. The hearing was the arraignment on the Superseding Indictment.

My friend who gave me the tip attended the hearing today.  I will update this post as information comes in.

Zambada Imperial was arrested on November 12, 2014 in the town of El Salado in the Municipality of Culiacán, Sinaloa.
He was later sentenced to 10 years in prison for violation of the Federal Firearms and Explosives Act, he was extradited after serving half his sentence for crimes committed in Mexico.

Since May 16, "El Mayito Gordo" asked Edges Haydeé de Santiago Wong, Fifth Judge of the Specialized District for the Execution of Penalties in Mexico City, for a transfer from the Federal Federal Criminal Court, Jalisco, to a prison in Mexico City.

Obviously that will never happen.
