Judge Absolved 'El Marro' of Attempted Murder Against Public Officials, President Confirms

"MX" for Borderland Beat

José Antonio Yépez Ortiz ("El Marro", The Sledgehammer)

During his morning press conference, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) revealed that a federal judge absolved Jose Antonio Yepez Ortiz ("El Marro", The Sledgehammer), former leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel (CSRL) in Guanajuato, of “attempted murder against public servants”.

AMLO demanded that the federal judge be reviewed by the Federal Judicial Council (CJF) and did not provide more information on the scope of the legal resolution.

El Marro was arrested last August and is currently an inmate at the Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1 ("Altiplano"), Mexico's maximum-security prison. Although his murder charge was dropped, El Marro is still faces charges for organized crime involvement, kidnapping, oil theft, and drug trafficking. 

The President stated that the report confirming El Marro's exoneration was released that morning during a meeting with his security cabinet. He said that this legal action highlighted the alleged acts of corruption by judges, magistrates, and ministers of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN).

El Marro was the leader of the CSRL, a criminal group based in Guanajuato whose main criminal activities include huachicol (oil theft) and narcomenudeo (drug dealing). Much of the violence occurring Guanajuato in recent years has been attributed to the turf war between the CSRL and the rival Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

Borderland Beat reported last February that El Marro was segregated from the rest of the prison population and had been complaining of ill treatment. A judge granted him a motion and ordered prison authorities to ensure El Marro was treated appropriately. 

Since 2018, Guanajuato has been the most violent state in Mexico, largely as a result of the territorial dispute between the CJNG and CSRL. Last year, Guanajuato closed the year with 4,490 murders, of which 92 percent had some connection with organized crime, according to local authorities.

  1. Of course, the lives of public servants mean less than the bribe money used to line the judge's pocket.

  6. Excuse me, Sr. Presidente but you are simply wrong as usual. Mr. Sledgehammer is a political prisoner who was caught with the help of the government and JAL. In the end, the Judge is an arbitrary party making an objective decision.

    4. I can't see Chango sparing Mencho. Mencho went after the families of La Resistencia. The Marro comment stands tho, lot of bodies would drop of Marro got out. He's a psychopath.

  17. For the ones who doesn't understand, this means that he already aligned with the right políticos and promised them to say "sí señor" whenever they say so. Kickups will go to the right pockets and it's business as usual.

    The government is going hard against Menchitas now all over the place and Marro will make sure GTO stays quiet as it used to after CJNG get slaughtered.

  22. I would like to see this guy (amlo) do the same thing when it comes to cjng. I use to have faith in amlo. I actually believed he was going to change things for the better. Now I just smh every time he speaks. I can't believe how dumb (and I'm starting to think currupt) he is. Either he's hell of stupid, or he thinks we are, thinking we're going to believe the rediculous and idiotic things he says at times. Why is he so worried about Marro, a small player with very limited influence nationally, from a small and local cartel, when there is other players with more power and influence nationally (and globally) that have done much worse and more frequently than Marro. Why has he wasted so much time and resources on such a small fry? Every time he's mentioned Marro or spoke of an operation that targeted him, it turned my stomach. He thinks he could distract us or fool us when there's people like mench(cjng), primito(cdg), los chapitos(cds), huevo treviño), etc. out there extorting, kidnapping, etc. innocent civilians and killing our soldiers, police, navy, and other law enforcement. How are you letting that slide amlo! Especially against our armed forces. That's a slap in the face and a big, ofensive, and blatant disrespect,not only to us citizens and our armed forces, but to Mexico itself. But you worry more about little ole' Marro. How could you tolerate that. By you doing so, you're saying it's alright to do so. If you're not going to stand up for Mexico and our armed forces (who by the way enlisted to protect our beloved country), atleast let them do so and allow them to protect themselves. It would be even better if you stepped aside altogether and resigned. You most likely wont so stop making distractions and messing with Marro. Atleast he had the balls to stand up and fight, even when the odds were against him. You might learn something from him if you would get off him and focuse on the ones that earned and truly merit your attention. Just saying
