Colombia Drug Trafficker Pled Guilty Without Notice in SDNY Now A Sentence of 42 Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY Exclusive, Apri 6 – In a multi-defendant indictment for exporting kilos of cocaine from Colombia, with little fanfare on April 6, 2022 Deivy Alexander Artunduaga Ramirez pleaded guilty. Inner City Press was present and now exclusively reports it.

  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald held the proceeding.

Nothing in the docket indicated there would be a guilty plea. Judge Buchwald asked who was attending, and Inner City Press identified itself: the only non-party present.  

A hiccup developed, in that the defendant made forfeiture in Colombia before he was extradited to the US. But the prosecutors did not lower their demand.

There is a 60 month mandatory minimum.

  The co-defendants are John Alejandro Sanchez Huertas, Hugo Alejandro Torrijos Medina (see below) and Marco Aurelio Rosales.

In September 2022, this: "Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald: Sentencing held on 9/20/2022 for Hugo Alejandro Torrijos Medina (3) Count 1. Present: AUSA Jarrod Schaeffer for the Government; David Anders and Dan Rosenblum for Defendant Hugo Alejandro Torrijos Medina; Defendant Hugo Alejandro Torrijos Medina; Spanish Translator; Court Reporter. A sentencing hearing was held before Judge Buchwald in-person on September 20, 2022. The Court sentenced Mr. Medina to 42 months imprisonment, forfeiture of $5,334.56, and a $100 special assessment."

This case is US v. Ramirez, 18-cr-352 (Buchwald)
