Alvaro Diaz After Atlanta Airport Arrest For Money Laundering Pleads Guilty in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 19 – Alfaro Diaz was arrested in the Atlanta airport earlier this year on his way to Costa Rica and charged with money laundering of elder fraud scheme proceeds.

      On July 28 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Denise L. Cote held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

 Judge Cote asked Diaz if he had read the indictment.

He had not - a Spanish translation had yet to be produced.

He had discussed it with his lawyer Marlon Kirton.   Kirton mentioned that plea negotiations are taking place. Judge Cote set January 19, 2021 as  trial date, with motions due December 7.

Now on November 19, Judge Cote held another proceeding - this one a change of plea.

Diaz pleaded guilty to the money laundering, said to be $30,000 to $40,000 a month. His sentencing submission is due February 11, and the government's on February 18.

The case is US v. Diaz, 20-cr-305 (Cote)
