The Lawyers of Ovidio Guzmán

"Mica" for Borderlandbeat.com

It’s also worth noting that Ovidio’s lawyers argued in court today that he requires medicine for depression and recent stomach surgery.



Ovidio Guzmán López, alleged leader of a faction of the Sinaloa cartel, refused to be represented by ex officio lawyers and, instead, asked to be defended by a group of three individuals who have experience in the legal defense of his father and even a former Morena official.

These are the lawyers Alberto Díaz Mendieta, Juan Clemente Morales and Julio Seguro García, who at the moment are part of the triplet of professionals who will defend the son of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, former leader and founder of that criminal group.




Alberto Díaz Mendieta

"El Ratón" would also have requested that two other defenders from Sinaloa join together to try to stop the extradition request made by the United States government since September 2019.

As for the group that currently heads his legal case, there is lawyer Alberto Díaz Mendieta, who has a law degree from UNAM and has already defended the interests of "El Chapo" on at least one occasion.


In particular when he was the titular defender of Víctor Manuel Félix Mendieta "El Vic", who was the operator of Joaquín Guzmán and in charge of the financial operations of the cartel in Mexico City, Jalisco and Sinaloa, until before his escape from the Southern Prison in 2020.

Díaz Mendieta, who also has a master's degree in Criminal Law, was also employed by the former Secretary of Health of San Luis Potosí and Morena's candidate for governor of that entity, Mónica Rangel.

The former official requested the legal assistance of the lawyer in April 2022 when she was accused of fraud, criminal association and abuse of functions, irregularities for which she finally pleaded guilty in May and was able to be released from prison after reaching an agreement with the authorities.

Another of Ovidio's defenders is Juan Clemente Morales, who, like Díaz Mendieta, has a law degree from UNAM. There are few indications of him about his professional career, however, according to Proceso magazine, in 2015 he was part of the legal representation of "El Chapo".

Although he is not identified as one of the main actors in the defense of the former leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Clemente Morales was one of the seven professionals who worked for the boss in the period when he escaped from the Altiplano prison, a prison in which his son was hospitalized yesterday.

The last of the defenders known is Julio Seguro García, but there is no information about him in the National Registry of Professionals of the Ministry of Public Education, so his academic background and his ID number are unknown.

Today, after leaving the audience in the Altiplano, the only one who gave statements to the press was Alberto Díaz Mendieta, who sees it likely that a larger team will be integrated to face the next hearing that will be held within no more than two months.

Turns out Ovidio was reakless and was believing his own corridos. Theres a pattern here if you want to stay out of jail stay in the Sierras

    7. @12:20 - You can't really be compassionate towards one person going through "raught" (SIC) times, while cursing another because of personal bias.... It kinda cancels things out for ya, as far as genuine empathy goes.

  2. I would imagine some DOJ administration peeps will be traveling with Biden Sunday to Mexico. Maybe Ovidio will be flying back on Air Force 1.

    1. It’s all a front so President Biden can negotiate with Ovidio….

      They want assurances that their crack rocks will be special crack rocks free from fentanyl, biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons.

      Presidential Purple Meth, Presidential Coconut Crack Rocks, and a little bit of some pure opium gum to smoke in the pipe. #CartelBiden

    2. 8:36; No they don’t. Caro Quintero, Güero Palma, Trevino and family and Mencho’s family and minions. Aside from the gift of Osiel and Chapo (gifts for political ends) only no names are extradited and the real kingpins don’t get extradited unless they’ve embarrassed the government or pulled arms and threatened US agents (generally speaking).

    3. But CIA told him he will be ok. Just cooperate and he'll be released on a technicality!

    4. That’s not true

    5. Ask Z 40 and he will tell you how extradition is. I do believe tho that they will send Raton to the USA, but it will be a minute

    6. Lol tell that to Z40 and RCQ

    7. 8:36 from experience, if the courts want to penalize some one the courts themselves will break the law, no one will hold them accountable. It's best to stay away from their reach.

    8. If a court wants you for dealing drugs in their jurisdiction, they will get you, specially if your known and have money.
      Just ask chapo, the beltranes, Los cuinis, Caro quintero, MAYO's children, osiel Cardenas and the list goes on.....
      they all get set up for an example, a participation trophy for the fake war on drugs. So Americans can say, my country is doing a wonderful job in this war on drugs, while there's thousands of homeless junkies in every city and over flooded with every drug you can think of 😂
      Yea good job. (Sarcasm)

  9. Only way to stop the arrests and extraditions is to form a super cartel and stop the endless war for turf. If the Cali Cartel had joined forces with the Medillin Cartel instead of directly aiding in its destruction the Medillin Cartel and Cali cartel would still be operating. But, no the Cali Cartel thought they could strike a deal with the devil and they ended up in hell!

  11. i’m surprised they kept the investigation on the down low , they definitely got him by surprise but he should of saw it coming who knows maybe he wanted to get caught you can only run for so long

  12. This piece of garbage will eventually be extradited. He will spend the rest of his filthy life in solitary confinement to reflect on his disgusting way he chose to live his life.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Reading all these comments, he’s not going to be extradited for a longtime. Everyone here is missing the point, what happens now? If the Chapitos side weakens then they’ll have no choice but to be under Mayo. If CDS unite then they’ll clean up shop. Whether Chapo’s son ends up in the US or not, America will continue to get flooded with Fentanyl. Caro Quintero never made it to the US in 40 years, lil dude might be alright.

  14. He won't be leaving Mexico anytime soon; that would be unprecedented for Mexico. Another reason El Raton won't be extradited soon, Mexico uses imprisoned narcos as bargaining power with the US.

  15. The best part about capture of this magnitude is all of the conspiracy theories that come along, like Mayo giving up Ovidio’s 📍

    1. How far is the distance between each arrest attempt?

    2. He wasn't lying low; he was in a hillside luxury compound with security.

    3. Chapitos blamed Mayos for lack of support from the first arrest attempt. Those of us who pay attention predicted that when the next arrest occurred, as it did, the mayos would not provide any support.

    4. Why did Mayo give up Ovidio days before Biden visits Mexico to discuss fentanly? nothing in Mexico happens by coincidence.

    5. The Chapitos fighting with Ruso and not supporting MZ in Zacatecas are two more factors of why Mayos would not participate.

  16. #1 that's the game.... He knew the consequences of swimming in the ocean.
    #2 His organization was the main producers and distributors of Fentanyl... I told you guys they are gonna put a thumb on that stuff... That's why the Poopy cultivation started up heavy in the triangle 📐 again.

    2. I fucking love it when anonymous people want credit for saying something anonymous!

      I tried to get people to make predictions for 2023. Nobody played but Ivan from BB and me, so it didn't get posted.

      One of us had Alfredo and the other Ovidio. Ivan, next year, we have to post.

  17. In The End Mayo...and The BLO will make a pact...and the rest of the Chapitos will think likewise... CJNG has big problems of their own... They knocked down the Fent...now their coming for windows

    1. I think Mayo Ruso and BLO are already United and have been for decades.

      This infighting with Chapo and his children, nephews, nieces etc. is due to poor manners and a lack of respect for life caused by Chapo.

      They’re just low class scum, extortionists, robbers, rapists, human traffickers and generally slime the opposite of YSL.

      Chapo stole from Ruso and tried to kill his faction.
