Major Mexican Cartel Player Sentenced to 25 Years

By Allan Lengel

The former leader of the Tijuana Cartel/Arellano-Felix Organization was sentenced Monday in San Diego fed court to 25 years in prison, the DEA announced.

Benjamin Arellano-Felix, nearly 60, was also ordered to forfeit $100 million in criminal proceeds.

“The Tijuana Cartel was one of the world’s most brutal drug trafficking networks, but has now met its demise with leader Benjamin Arellano-Felix’s sentencing today,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart in a statement. “It is a major victory for DEA and Mexico’s Calderon Administration.”

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy added: “Today’s prison sentence virtually ensures that Arellano-Felix will spend the remainder of his life in custody. Following this sentence, he will be deported to Mexico to finish a 22-year sentence.”

For U.S. authorities, it was a long road to justice.

Arellano-Felix was taken into custody by Mexican authorities on March 9, 2002.

A final order of extradition to the United States was granted in 2007 and after years of unsuccessful appeals, Arellano-Felix arrived in the U.S. on April 29, 2011, to face drug-related charges in San Diego.

In January, he pleaded guilty.

 

More than 1/3 of DEA’s Divisions Have No Permanent Chiefs

The DEA has a problem: It needs more permanently assigned leaders.

The New York Post reports that more than one-third of the DEA’s 21 divisions don’t have permanently assigned special agents in charge.

The Post points out that the New York division is finally getting a chief, James Kasson, more than six months after special agent in charge, John Gilbride, retired to become head of corporate security at Purdue Pharma.

The Post wrote that DEA spokesman Todd Scott downplayed the vacancy’s impacts.

“When there is an acting SAC investigations and cases proceed,” Scott told the Post. “Promotions occur. The acting title does nothing to prevent them from running their division.”

With just seven months to go until election time, President Obama is filling the final U.S. Attorney vacancies around the country.

In a White House press release issued late last week, the president announced the nominations of Patrick A. Miles, Jr. for the Western District of Michigan in Grand Rapids and Danny C. Williams, Sr. for the Northern District of Oklahoma, respectively.

Miles, Jr., a Harvard Law School graduate, has been a partner with Dickinson Wright PLLC since 2006.

Williams has been a partner at the firm of Charney, Buss & Williams since 2003. From 1991 to 1993, he served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office.

What’s $500 million for a corporate behemoth like Google?

Maybe a drop in the bucket, but for the government it’s a nice piece of change.

Rhode Island U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha plans to discuss at a press conference Monday afternoon how the money paid out to the Justice Department will be distributed, the Associated Press reported.

Google gave up the cash as part of a settlement after the Justice Department found it was distributing Google ads for Canadian pharmacies, which were selling drugs illegally.

 

FBI Agent Barry Bush Remembered 5 Years Later; Was Killed by Friendly Fire

The Express-Time

The Barry Lee Bush that Joseph Douress remembers isn’t the FBI agent who investigated gangs in Newark and the U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya.

Douress remembers a friend who would sit on a floor and stuff envelopes with invitations for a charity golf tournament, a neighbor who would plop himself on Douress’ couch to watch sports and have a few beers, a golfer perpetually frustrated by an incurable slice.

“Understand,” said Douress, who lives across the street from Bush’s widow, Karen, in Forks Township, “you’d never know Barry was in some cases the lead investigator in some of the biggest cases in this country’s history. … He was very well respected as an FBI agent. But around the neighborhood, he was Barry Bush.”

Thursday will mark five years since the 52-year-old Bush was fatally shot by friendly fire while pursuing bank robbers in Readington Township. Authorities say a fellow agent mistakenly shot Bush in confusion as agents descended on the robbers.
