BREAKING News Out Of Trump’s DOJ! Sentenced To LIFE IN PRISON!!!


BREAKING News Out Of Trump’s DOJ! Sentenced To LIFE IN PRISON!!! Earlier today, a Guatemalan national was sentenced
to life in prison following a March 2016 trial that resulted in a conviction for his participation
in an international drug trafficking conspiracy. He was responsible for the distribution of
multi-ton quantities of cocaine for illegal importation into the United States. Acting Assistant Attorney General John P.
Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Special Agent in Charge Raymond
Donovan of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Operations Division made the
announcement. Waldemar Lorenzana-Cordon, 53, was sentenced
by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District
of Columbia. “Waldemar Lorenzana-Cordon was a drug kingpin
whose criminal organization had close ties to the violent Sinaloa Cartel and was responsible
for transporting massive amounts of cocaine to be sold on our streets,” said Acting
Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “Lorenzana-Cordon’s life sentence sends
a powerful message to leaders of drug trafficking organizations that, if they send their poison
to our country, the United States and our international partners will work tirelessly
to bring them to justice, no matter where in the world they may reside. I thank the dedicated prosecutors of the Criminal
Division’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section and law enforcement officers with the Drug
Enforcement Administration’s Bilateral Investigations Group for their outstanding work on this important
case.” “One of the world’s most influential drug
traffickers now faces American justice and DEA is pleased he will never be in business
again,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Donovan. “Lorenzana-Cordon imported huge amounts
of cocaine to the United States for over a decade, helping fuel our nation’s drug epidemic. He conspired with some of the most brutal
and destructive drug networks in history, facilitating and coordinating huge shipments
for the Sinaloa Cartel, among others. DEA’s work will always focus on these types
of investigations: attacking the most powerful, influential global criminal networks and their
many facilitators and associates.” The defendant was convicted on one count of
conspiring to unlawfully distribute cocaine for illegal importation into the United States. As proven at trial, the defendant along with
his brother, co-defendant Eliu Lorenzana-Cordon, led an international drug trafficking organization
with close ties to the Sinaloa Cartel. Between 1996 and 2009, the defendant and his
co-conspirators received, stored, and distributed multi-ton quantities of cocaine from Colombia
at their properties in Zacapa, Guatemala, for importation into Mexico and then ultimately
into the United States. In February, Eliu Lorenzana-Cordon was sentenced
to life in prison following a March 2016 trial resulting in a conviction. On April 27, 2010, the Department of Treasury’s
Office of Foreign Asset Control designated the defendant and his brother, Eliu Lorenzana-Cordon,
as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin
Designation Act due to their significant roles in international narcotics trafficking and
their ties to the Sinaloa Cartel. The DEA’s Special Operations Division’s
Bilateral Investigations Unit and Guatemala City Country Office led the investigation,
which was supported by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force program, the Criminal
Division’s Office of International Affairs, the Chicago Police Department and the governments
of El Salvador and Panama provided support and assistance. Finally, and in particular, the Justice Department
wishes to convey its gratitude to the government of Guatemala for its steadfast commitment,
collaboration and assistance in the investigation, extradition, and prosecution of this case. Assistant Deputy Chief Michael Lang and Trial
Attorney Emily Cohen of the Criminal Division’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section are prosecuting
the case. GOD BLESS.
