Money Launderer Arrested in Miami Said Colombian No Longer Touch Money Only Tether

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 21 – A man arrested in Miami International Airport as a money launderer was up for sentencing on June 21 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Dale E. Ho. Inner City Press was there; thread:

... The defendant is describing how he was arrested at Miami Int'l Airport, says he is a legitimate businessman 

Bautista: I have cried in my prison cell... I have sought God.  [Turns to courtroom gallery and speaks in Spanish] Perdoname. 

Judge: We will break then I will announce my sentence. [Defendant speaks with his family members who are seated in front row]  [All rise]

Judge: The defendant was kidnapped as a child. The US wants 108 months. Defendant asks for 36 months. I will vary down but not that much. I sentence you to 66 months. No supervised release because you should be deported. 

   In the docket is the quote,"'the Colombian nowadays want everything in USDT (i.e. Tether, a cryptocurrency)," with Bautista then confirming that the Colombian cartel members "don't touch money anymore."

  The case is US v. Bautista, 23-cr-663 (Ho)
