See you in 2030

A federal judge slams former lawman Conrado Cantu with more than 24 years of prison time for his role in protecting criminals during his tenure as Cameron County sheriff.

Cantu's codefendants also receive sentences from U.S. District Judge Hilda Tagle, who tells one of them "It’s incomprehensible … the moral choice you made ..."

Justice, my friends, is served.

ADDENDUM: Here's what the United States Attorney's office says about this case in a press release issued today:
“Mr. Cantu sold his badge and his office, and we will not tolerate that,” said United States Attorney Chuck Rosenberg. “His long sentence of imprisonment fits the crime, for it is simply inexcusable for a law enforcement official to violate the very laws he is sworn to uphold.”

So much for his(cantu) new career choice. But what troubles me is that his crime "boss" jerry garcia only got a mere 9 years. He deserved the 24 years as well. Now he gets to get out soon, AND keep his huge expensive ,paid for home.And this guys wife is a teacher? Que mierda!
