    Leon Benson #995256,
    P.C.F,
    4490 Reformatory Rd.,Pendleton, IN, 46064

    My name is Leon Benson and I’m an innocent man, originally from Flint Michigan, in an Indiana prison. And I’m falling through the cracks of the U.S criminal justice system by the day, as I’m sincerely fighting to acquire immediate assistance to exoneration. I’ve been falsely imprisoned 8 years straight. But to give you a clearer understanding of why I stated I’m falling through the cracks of the system” I must present the following:
    FACTS OF THE CRIME: On August 8th, 1998, a white middle-class male name Kasey Schoen was shot and killed as he sat in his truck in the near downtown area of Indianapolis, Indiana. Although I was a block away, in an apartment building during the time of the crime, I was arrested and charged with homicide on August 14th, 1998 due to a black male named Donald Brooks telling the Indianapolis police dept that I was involved in the shooting ( later, at two trials, Brooks claimed not to remember anything) an eyewitness to the shooting, Christy Schmitt, a white female newspaper delivery person then mysteriously picked me from a photo- lineup on August 14, 1998, after my arrest, although, my natural appearance of a 5’10” light-complexioned black male contradicted what she told police on the scene, August 8th, 1998: while loading an outside newspaper vending box, she observed the crime from 50 yards away at night with her van’s headlights illuminating the scene. And described the shooter as a dark-complexioned, black male 20’s, 5’8” skinny built, wearing an all black t-shirt, black shoes, and black jogging pants with stripes down each leg” noted in police reports.
    However, on August 17th, 1998 another eyewitness, a black male Named Dakarai C. Fulton gave police a statement and positively identified another person as having committed the shooting. He described the shooter as wearing the exact clothing Schmitt described, but in addition he said he saw the shooter 2-3 hours earlier with a 380. Auto- handgun (the same gun type used to kill Kasey) in addition, on August 25th, 1998 according to Indiana’s crime stoppers records an anonymous caller claimed to know the shooter and that he used his girlfriends gun in the crime she reported stolen days before (police records confirm a report of a stolen 380. Auto-handgun). And on September 9th, 1998, a black male name Kenneth Brookings gave police a statement that his girlfriend Sheereta Smith told him who committed the shooting. (both these sources stated the same person as Fulton stated committed the crime) THE TRIALS: My trial lawyers never brought the witnesses forward to testify at either trial. And despite not presenting such exculpatory testimony, the first trial on May 24th-25th, 1999 ended in a hung jury: 6 not guilty, 5 guilty, 1 undecided. And this was largely due to Schmitt’s contradictory testimony; in both trials she stated I was a light complexioned black male sitting in court.
    Unfortunately, on the July 6th-8th, 1999 re-trial I was found guilty, despite the testimonies of Shirley Gaskin testifying that I was in an apartment building with her during the crime; Carol Knight testifying she saw me wearing blue jeans and a blue t-shirt with an emblem on it the night of the crime and; Cheryl King testifying that Schmitt told her on the crime scene that she couldn’t identify the shooter. Needless to say,

    Colombia has extradited a woman known as The Queen of the Amphetamines to the United States, where she will face charges of drug trafficking.

    Beatriz Elena Henao was on Interpol's list of its top 10 most wanted women.

    She is accused of being an international drug dealer, shipping large quantities of amphetamines to the US, Spain, and the Netherlands.

    Police say her knowledge of English, German, Dutch, and Spanish, made it easy for her to sell the drugs abroad.
    'International dealer'

    The 45-year-old political science graduate is accused of being the international face of a Colombian drug gang led by Javier Antonio and Luis Enrique Calle Serna, better known as the Comba brothers.

    Police say Ms Henao sold some 300,000 units of amphetamines.

    They say she and at least one other member of her family were key players in the international drugs market.

    Two of her sons are in prison, one in Spain for murder, another for drug trafficking in the Netherlands.

    Beatriz Henao will face trial in a New York court alongside two other alleged members of the Comba gang on charges of drug trafficking and money laundering.

    #298089 diane borchardt t.c.i p.o.box 3100 fond du lac,wi 54936 Diane Borchardt was a former teacher's aide/study hall monitor at Jefferson High School in Wisconsin. She was convicted of hiring three of her students to murder her estranged husband, Ruben Borchardt, on Easter morning in 1994.

    At her trial, Diane Borchardt was found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide. She was sentenced to life in prison, with no possibility of parole until she had served 45 years of her sentence.

    The miniseries Seduced by Madness: The Diane Borchardt Story was broadcast on NBC and CHCH on February 25 and 26, 1996 and starred Ann-Margret as Diane.

    Diane Borchardt loses her appeal for new trial

    Ex-teachers aide is serving life sentence for hiring 3 teens to kill her husband

    By Kevin Murphy - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    April 24, 1998

    A former teachers aide serving a life sentence for hiring three students to kill her estranged husband in 1994 is not entitled to a new trial, the state Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.

    Diane Borchardt, 48, was convicted of being party to the crime of first-degree intentional homicide and of using a child to commit a felony for the shotgun slaying of her husband, Ruben Borchardt, at their rural Jefferson home on Easter 1994.

    Diane Borchardt, who becomes eligible for parole in 2035, has maintained her innocence, although she didn't testify at trial. She was convicted of hiring Douglas Vest Jr., then 17, to commit the killing for $600 in cash, a ring and a promise of $20,000 from her husband's life insurance. Vest recruited Joshua Yanke, then 17, and Michael Maldonado, then 16, to assist in the slaying.

    The three, who had been students at Jefferson High School where Diane Borchardt worked, were convicted on homicide charges. Vest and Maldonado were sentenced to life in prison. Yanke testified against them and received an 18-year term.

    Diane Borchardt appealed the conviction, saying she had ineffective counsel, saying there were errors by the trial judge and alleging the abuse of a John Doe investigation in which witnesses testified in secret.

    The appeal claims District Attorney Linda Larson used a John Doe investigation to improperly obtain more information against Diane Borchardt and the three teens. A John Doe probe can be used to learn if uncharged individuals were involved in a crime or if the defendants can be charged in other crimes.

    However, the Court of Appeals panel based in Madison said the probe was properly conducted as it resulted in Shannon Johnson, of Waunakee, being charged but later dropped as a co-conspirator in the slaying.

    Diane Borchardt's attorney, Richard Auerbach, also unsuccessfully challenged as hearsay testimony from the couple's son about Ruben Borchardt's dying words: "I can't believe she would do this to me."

    Charles Borchardt, 16, testified that shots woke him up and that he found his father in a basement bedroom. His father first said two males had shot him and added that he believed his wife was involved, Charles Borchardt testified.

    The appeals court upheld Jefferson County Circuit Judge John Ullsvik's decision that the statements were an allowable exception to the hearsay rule.

    Auerbach said he and Diane Borchardt were disappointed with the decision and that they would seek to have the state Supreme Court review the case.

    Books and Movies

    Two fantastic books were written about murderess Joy Aylor:

    Open Secrets by Carlton Stower is a very (very) detailed book about Joy’s childhood, her marriage to Larry, Larry’s life and adulterous proclivities, and the men who were willing to risk so much for a woman.

    Author Ken Englade also wrote a book about Joy Aylor titled To Hatred Turned. Although a well-written book, it doesn’t offer as much detail as Stower’s book.

    Cybill Shepherd starred in the role of Joy in the movie Telling Secrets. Although only available on Region 2 DVD (non-US), it frequently reruns on the Lifetime Movie Network.

    Rhonda Glover # 1355639 /Mountainview Unit
    2305 Ransom Road
    Gatesville, Texas 76528
    Everyone writes and asks what my life is like living on the same unit where they house death row. Karla Faye Tucker lived here. I live in a dorm, not a cell, no bars clang shut. I have a red brick cubicle, with red tiled floors and a window bed. My window opens up to a 20ft ceiling. The night air feels so good, like being on the lake on a boat at night. My view is of the mountain side and three telephone poles that when the sunrises, look exactly like Calvary-thus we live on Ransom Rd. We eat really well here and have our own garden. We eat fresh vegetables and fruit someday. Our kitchen captain takes pride in his job. Other units are not so lucky.

    I work in Braille transcribing for the manufacturing and logistics dept of the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice. I transcribe books for the Texas Education Agency and a University in Georgia into Braille for the blind. I am a certified Braille transcriber here on my unit. I type books for the blind for universities and elementary school. I have a great life here... I live in a dorm not a cell. We have a gorgeous chapel and many wonderful people who come and visit from all over the world. I Braille the "Karla Faye Tucker Set Free" by Linda Strom for my final exam in The Library of Congress. So many miracles have happened since then-we do not suffer we are blessed. "I'd rather be tried by twelve then carried out by six". I am also a certified tactile graphic designer. Everyday I work on my music certification. It is like learning a foreign language, but much harder since Braille is a "code" using only 6 keys. Louis Braille based it on the Morris Code.

    Our rec yard is huge and we have a track. We have a ranch out back with tons a grazing cattle. It reminds me of home. This is where I see the gorgeous hill country sunsets. They say that the reason the sunsets are so amazing here is because of all the prayers to and from the prisons. My favorite thing to do here is see the sunset.

    Our chapel is fabulous also. We feel like we are in a real church in the free world. It has wooden pews, stained glass windows, a big stage and surround sound. Famous people from all over the world come to minister to us. We are so lucky.

    I attend Central Texas College. It is the military branch of Ft. Hood and this college is located around the world. So, I feel blessed to be able to attend this school. We have great professors who really care about the ladies changing.

    I often get asked what I want to do with my life after this ordeal is over. Since I have been so unhappy for so long, I have had to really think things through. I think I want to go back to my roots and live on a lot of land, have horses, dogs, sheep, cattle and rescue animals too.

    I love polo and golf, so I would like to have charity events for abused women and children, children of the incarcerated too. I have been asked to join a prison ministry also.

    linda dolloff #115547 m.c.i. 17 mallison falls rd .windham,maine 04062 Dolloff is serving a 16-year sentence for attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault and filing a false police report in connection with an April 12, 2009, incident in which authorities believe she attacked her sleeping husband with a bat and shot herself in the hip to make it look like a home invasion. The couple was going through a divorce at the time.

    The state’s case against Dolloff is largely circumstantial, as Maine Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Leigh Saufley said Wednesday, with inconclusive blood-spatter evidence, mixed DNA on two weapons and no eyewitnesses.

    Dolloff has maintained all along the crime was committed by an intruder, and Paradie said after Wednesday’s hearing that the woman’s family believes she was wrongfully convicted. A group of women, including two of Dolloff’s sisters, discussed the case briefly with Paradie after the hearing but refused requests to talk to reporters.

    “I think the family has always believed Linda is innocent and it’s hard for them to see her incarcerated for a crime she didn’t commit,” Paradie told members of the media after Dolloff’s supporters departed.

    The Han twins murder conspiracy was a case of attempted murder of Sunny Han by her identical twin sister Jeena Han, occurring in November 6, 1996 in Irvine, Orange County, California, United States.
    It quickly became a sensationalized story in the media. The case brought together several themes, including surviving a broken family through a close sisterly bond, a "good" twin sister and an "evil" twin sister who were both beautiful as well as co-valedictorians at their high school.

    n November 1999, an American Justice documentary entitled "Sister Against Sister: The Twin Murder Plot" aired on A&E, covering the sensational details of the case. The program was hosted by Bill Kurtis.
    In 2001, the case was profiled on The Investigators under the title "Evil Twin".
    In 2005, Snapped, a series about true crime on the Oxygen Network, ran an episode about Jeena's plot to kill her twin sister and take over her life.
    In 2012, this story became the focus of the pilot episode of the Investigation Discovery show, "Evil Twins"

    McKinley J Phipps Jr. ak.a rapper lil mac #445656/p.o.box 174 st.gabriel,la 70776 Mac started his music career as a kid rapper in the year 1990. He then went by the stage name Lil Mac, and at 13 years old he released his debut album The Lyrical Midget. The album was one of the earliest commercial hip-hop albums to come out of New Orleans, and featured some production from New Orleans producer Mannie Fresh. It was not very successful though Lil Mac would not be heard from for another 7 years.
    In 1997 he changed his stage name from Lil Mac to just Mac and signed with Master P's No Limit Records. He made guest appearances on many other artists' albums before releasing his own. He was featured on Master P's Ghetto D, Mystikal's Unpredictable, and Mia X's Unlady Like, among others. The next year, 1998, Mac released his second solo album and first with No Limit, Shell Shocked. The album is Mac's most commercially successful to date, reaching #11 on the Billboard 200.[2] Mac again was featured on many other No Limit releases that year. In 1999 he released his second album on the label, World War III. While it was still on the label, this release differed from usual No Limit releases in that it was not exclusively produced by the production team Beats by the Pound, and featured only three guest spots from major No Limit names Master P, C-Murder, and Silkk the Shocker.[3] The album did not fare as well commercially as his first No Limit release, peaking at #44 on the Billboard 200.
    World War III would be Mac's last album released on No Limit and his last solo album to date, as he would be sentenced to a 30 year prison term in 2001. In 2000 he did join the group 504 Boyz, whose name was a reference to the area code 504. The group was a collective of other No Limit rappers such as Master P, Silkk the Shocker, and C-Murder. Mac was with their group for one album, 2000's.

Striking cords across all race and class boundaries, Robert Howard recounts the violent, bestial life of prison that he faced at the young age of 15 in 1963. Rising to the demands of prison life, Howard became one of the strongest leaders Angola has ever seen. First, he led in crime and corruption and then as Divine light flooded his heart and mind, he led in non-violence and kindness. “A drama that reflects the heart of all men,” says P.J.

    Susan Lucille Wright #01220418 c.m.c.u 1401 state school rd gatesville,tx 76599 Susan Lucille Wright (born April 24, 1976) is an American woman from Houston, Texas who made headlines in 2003 for stabbing her husband, Jeff Wright, 193 times and then burying his body in their backyard.[1] She was convicted of second-degree murder in 2004, and is currently serving a 20-year sentence at Correctional Facility in Gatesville, Texas as of 2012. Susan Lucille Wyche was born on April 24, 1976 in Houston, Texas to Sue Whella (née Tschoepe) and Jimmy Lawrence Wyche. At the age of 17, she worked as a topless dancer at Gold Cup for two months. In 1997, while working as a restaurant waitress in Galveston, she met Jeff Wright and they married in 1998 while she was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with their first son, Bradley. In 2002, a daughter, Kailey was born. Wright claims that her husband began to abuse her during the first few years of their marriage.[3]
    Crime[edit]

    According to evidence presented by the prosecution, on Monday, January 13, 2003, Susan Wright, 26, tied her husband, Jeff Wright, 34, to their bed and stabbed him 193 times with two different knives. She then buried his body in their Houston backyard. She attempted to cover up the crime scene by painting the bedroom. The next day, Wright filed a domestic abuse report in order to get a restraining order against her husband.
    According to the evidence adduced during the 2010 punishment trial, it was shown that the prosecution's theory that Jeff was tied to the bed was not supported by the medical examiner who excavated the body. The medical examiner testified that Jeff had a significant amount of cocaine in his body the night he died - so much so that Jeff's body had not metabolized all the cocaine.

    P.O. BOX 1033
    COLEMAN, FL 33521 Born in New York, Alponse T. Persico grew up in South Brooklyn and Bensonhurst.
    Persico's father is Carmine Persico, the imprisoned official boss of the Colombo family. Alphonse Persico's brother is Michael Persico, considered by federal prosecutors to also belong to the Colombo family.[2] He was nicknamed "Little Allie Boy" to distinguish him from his father's older brother, who was also named Alphonse and was a caporegime (captain) in the Colombo family. Alphonse Persico was married to Teresa Persico.
    Unlike some mafiosi, the young Alphonse Persico was a promising student who graduated from high school and was accepted into college. At St. John's University in New York, Persico contemplated going to law school. Instead, he quit St. John's after his sophomore year, presumably to work for his father. By his early 20s, Persico was a soldier in his father's family, and by his mid 20s, Persico was reportedly a capo. Like many other mafiosi, Persico enjoyed the power and excitement of the mob life. In 1983, Persico was arrested for heroin possession, but the case was dismissed.Alphonse T. Persico, known as Little Allie Boy or just Allie Boy, is a former acting boss of the Colombo crime family from the 1980s and 1990s. He is not to be confused with his uncle of the same name, who was also a Colombo family mobster known as "Allie Boy", who died in 1989.[1]

    Carmine John Persico, Jr. (born August 8, 1933 in Brooklyn) also known as "Junior", "The Snake" and "Immortal", has been the de facto boss of the Colombo crime family since the early 1970s. Persico has overseen gang wars, murders, and major rackets, most of the time from prison. He has been serving a sentence of 139 years in prison since 1987.[1]Carmine John Persico, Jr. was born on August 8, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York, to Carmine John Persico, Sr. and Assunta "Susan" Plantamura.[2] Carmine Persico, Jr. is the brother of Colombo capos Theodore Persico and Alphonse Persico (died in 1989). Carmine Persico's son is Colombo underboss Alphonse Persico, commonly known as "Allie Boy". Carmine Persico Jr.'s nephew is Theodore Persico, Jr.
    Carmine Persico, Sr. was a legal stenographer for several law firms in Manhattan and provided his family with a comfortable living. The Persico family lived in the Carroll Gardens and Red Hook sections of Brooklyn. Carmine Persico Jr. dropped out of high school at age 16.[2] By then, he was a leader of the Garfield Boys, a Brooklyn street gang. However, one contemporary source says that in 1950 the 16 year-old Persico actually belonged to the South Brooklyn Boys, a successor gang to the Garfield Boys.[3] In March 1951, the 17 year-old Persico was arrested on charges of fatally beating another youth in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. However, all charges were eventually dropped.[4]
    In the early 1950s, Profaci crime family capo Frank Abbatemarco recruited Carmine Persico Jr. into the crime family. At first, Persico did bookmaking and loansharking, then moved into burglaries and hijackings. During this decade, Persico was arrested over 12 times, but spent only a few days in jail. Persico also started working with Joe Gallo and his brothers Albert and Lawrence.[4]

Organized crime observers identified Marcello as a figurehead during that period while the organization's day-to-day operations actually were run by John “No Nose” DiFronzo, Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo, Joseph “Joe the Builder” Andriacchi and Angelo J. LaPietra. Marcello is the Cousin of Michael Hayes Marcello, and a cousin of Robert Urbinatti. He is also the father of Rocco Marcello.Born in Chicago, Marcello worked as a laborer for Chicago's Department of Streets and Sanitation from 1960 until 1973.[1]
    Marcello reportedly became a "made" member in the Chicago mob in 1983—a step that, a mob turncoat testified in 2007, required an individual to be 100 percent Italian and also to have participated in at least one killing. Actually (and perhaps unknown to Marcello's bosses), Marcello's mother was Irish.[2]
    Although he had no criminal record, Marcello first became identified by authorities as a critical member of the Chicago Outfit in the 1980s because of his role as a driver for Chicago mob bosses Joseph Aiuppa and Sam "Wings" Carlisi and as a confidant to Carlisi.

    Darlene Gentry (née Doskocil) was the perfect Texas beauty -- blonde with a button nose and big blue eyes. It seemed that the former homecoming queen had found the perfect husband in the charming and dark-haired Keith Gentry. Together they went out dancing and drinking and enjoyed the blissful life of good-looking newlyweds.

    Soon enough, humdrum home life began to replace youthful excitement. Keith had a job at a local electrical company that sent him out of town for four days a week. Darlene finished her nursing degree and found a job as a nurse. The couple had three boys and lived next door to Keith's parents in the small town of Robinson, just outside of Waco. Their relationship became strained, and financial troubles only made it worse. Keith promised Darlene he'd never leave her and the kids.

    On the early morning of November 9, 2005, Darlene called 911 and reported that Keith had been shot during a home invasion. "There's blood on the bed and he is gurgling," she told the dispatcher. Police arrived at the Gentry home, and soon, Darlene's story started to fall apart. The first thing that struck investigators was that Darlene, a registered nurse, had made no effort to save her husband. Then, a pair of gloves found in Darlene's trash can tested positive for gunshot residue. The most damning bit of evidence of all, however, came in the form of a video secretly shot by two Texas Rangers. The video showed Darlene wading around in a pond -- the same pond where two days prior, detectives had found the .22 caliber handgun used to kill Keith. Shortly after Keith's death, Darlene had expressed an interest in buying property that the pond was on, but told the owner she wanted the pond filled. The owner, aware of the events surrounding Darlene, called police and told them the gun may be in the pond. In 2007, Gentry was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

    Orenthal James "O. J." Simpson (born July 9, 1947), nicknamed "The Juice", is a retired American football player and actor. Simpson was the first professional football player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season, a mark he set in 1973. While six other players have passed the 2,000 rush yard mark, he stands alone as the only player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a 14-game season (professional football changed to a 16-game season in 1978). He holds the record for the single season yards-per-game average, which stands at 143.1 ypg. Simpson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
    After retiring from professional football, Simpson had a successful career as a football broadcaster and actor.
    In 1995, he was acquitted of the 1994 murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman after a lengthy and internationally publicized criminal trial, the People v. Simpson. In 1997, a civil court awarded a judgment against Simpson for their wrongful deaths; to date he has paid little of the $33.5 million penalty.[2]
    In September 2007, Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with numerous felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping.[3] In 2008, he was found guilty[4][5] and sentenced to 33 years' imprisonment, with a minimum of nine years without parole.[6] He is serving his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada.[7]

    AYER, MA 01432 John "Sonny" Franzese, Sr. (born February 6, 1917 Naples),[1] is a longtime member and the current Underboss of the Colombo crime family. Arguably, Franzese has been famous as the current oldest active member of the American Mafia. Franzese is listed as an associate producer of the 2002 film This Thing of Ours, which stars James Caan.Rise in the Colombo crime family [edit]

    He was born to Carmine "The Lion" Franzese and Maria Corvola, although his birth year is a source of confusion. Federal prison records say that he was born February 6, 1917. However, his son Michael Franzese says that his father was actually born in 1919.[3] According to some sources, Franzese was born at sea on the ship that brought his parents to New York.[4][better source needed]
    Raised in New York City, in the late 1930s Franzese joined the Profaci crime family (later named the Colombo crime family) under boss Joseph Profaci. Franzese bore a close physical resemblance to boxer Rocky Marciano, one of his friends. His first arrest came in 1938, for assault.[5] In 1942, in the midst of World War II, he was discharged from the United States Army because he displayed '"homicidal tendencies"[5][6] Although never being arrested for it, court papers accused him of committing rape in 1947.[5]
    Franzese operated out of New York City and New Jersey and was involved in racketeering, fraud, and loansharking. He is believed to have been elevated to caporegime or captain in the Colombo family in the mid-1950s and by 1964 he had been promoted to underboss. In 1966, Franzese was able to avoid a conviction for murdering a rival and dumping the body into a bay.[5]
    In 1967, Franzese gained a financial interest in a new recording company, Buddha Records. The company became quite successful, recordings hits for acts such as Melanie Safka, the Isley Brothers, and Curtis Mayfield. Franzese used Buddha to launder illegal mob earnings and to bribe disc jockies with payola.[4]

    NYPD mugshot of John Franzese, circa 1960s.
    In March 1967, Franzese was convicted of masterminding several bank robberies.[7] During the trial, the prosecution produced records claiming that Franzese had killed between 30 to 50 people.[8] In 1970, Franzese was sentenced to 50 years in prison.[3] In 1978, Franzese was released[5] on parole but returned to prison in 1982 for a parole violation. In 1984, Franzese was released on parole again.[9] Until 2008, he was never charged with another crime,[5] although he would frequently return to jail on parole violations.

    FLORENCE, CO 81226 Juan García Ábrego is a former Mexican drug lord who started out his criminal career under the tutelage of his uncle Juan Nepomuceno Guerra, who is reported to be the former head of a criminal dynasty along the U.S.-Mexico border now called the Gulf Cartel.
    United States intelligence reports state Guerra reared his nephew on car theft before passing down his criminal enterprise.[1] The exact date of succession is unknown, however law enforcement officials recall an incident on January 27, 1987 when Tomás Morlet, former officer in an elite Mexican police force turned national trafficker, exchanged harsh words with García Ábrego and was later found, shot twice in the back in the doorway of Guerra's Piedras Negras Restaurant.[edit]

    Reports date his trafficking career beginning in the mid-1970s exporting marijuana from Mexico into the U.S. states of Texas, Louisiana and Florida. In the early 1980s he began incorporating cocaine into the cartel's trafficking operations.[2] García Ábrego is widely known for innovating Mexican trafficking operations, turning them from smugglers into suppliers. By renegotiating deals with the Cali Cartel, García Ábrego was able to secure 50% of every shipment out of Colombia as payment for delivery, instead of the $1,500 USD per kilo they were previously receiving.[2][3] The renegotiating however brought a price, the cartel would have to guarantee any shipment from Colombia to its destination. This change forced García Ábrego to begin stockpiling hundreds of tons of cocaine along Mexico's northern border in warehouses,[3] however it allowed him to set up his own distribution network and expand his political influence.[2] By the end of the 1980s and into the early 1990s it was estimated García Ábrego was smuggling over 300 metric tons per year across the US-Mexico border.[3]

Originally a mechanic in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, where he was born, he entered the Gulf Cartel by helping Juan García Abrego, the capo at the time; when García Ábrego was arrested in 1996, some infighting erupted within the cartel. Osiel Cárdenas eventually took control by killing his friend and contender Salvador Gómez, earning Cárdenas the nickname "El Mata Amigos" (The Friend-Killer).
    As confrontations with rival groups heated up, Osiel Cárdenas sought and recruited over 30 deserters of the Mexican Army's elite Grupo Aeromóvil de Fuerzas Especiales (GAFE) to form part of the cartel's armed wing.[2] Los Zetas, as they are known, served as the hired private mercenary army of the Gulf Cartel.
    After a shootout with the Mexican military in 2003, Osiel was arrested and imprisoned. In 2007 he was extradited to the U.S. and in 2010 he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for money laundering, drug trafficking, homicide, and for having threatened two U.S. federal agents in 1999.

His life story was portrayed in the 2001 film Blow, starring Johnny Depp.George Jung was born to Frederick, a German American, and Ermine (née O'Neill) Jung, in Boston, Massachusetts, then raised in Weymouth, Massachusetts.[2] Though Jung did not excel academically, he was a star football player and was described by his classmates as "a natural leader."[2] His first arrest was solicitation of prostitution to an undercover police officer. After graduating in 1961 from Weymouth High School, Jung went to the University of Southern Mississippi. He studied for a degree in advertising but never completed his studies.[2] Jung began recreationally using marijuana, selling a portion of everything he bought to break even.

He had been staying at the Playboy Club, where he was to meet a connection who would pick up the marijuana. The connection was arrested for heroin smuggling, however, and informed the authorities about Jung to get a reduced sentence.[4] After arguing with the judge about the purpose of sending a man to prison "for crossing an imaginary line with a bunch of plants.

    Draper, UT 84020 Kerri Faye Brown was made famous by being convicted of murdering retirement home owner Mina Pajela. She has never admitted guilt, but the prosecutions case proved too strong for her to return to freedom. Kerri Faye Brown moved to Orem, Utah with her newborn daughter, after a break-up with her boyfriend in April of 2001. When she arrived in Orem she moved in with her sister and quickly attained a job at a high-class retirement home. She worked as an activities director and through impressing her boss and the owner of the facility, Mina Pajela, quickly became an administrator. Kerri Faye Brown and Mina Pajela became fast friends and began spending an immense amount of time together.
    Kerri Faye Brown had a secret and that secret was about to come out. She was fixing the books at the retirement center. Shortly after on April 25, 2001 Mina Pajela was found murdered in her car. Police found that she was shot to death and some witnesses came forward stating that they saw a woman attempting to set the car on fire.

    Police began the investigation with no suspects, but did discover that almost $40,000 had been embezzled from the retirement home. As the investigation continued, Kerri Faye Brown was revealed as the embezzler. During this time Kerri Faye Brown had reconciled with her boyfriend and moved back to Arizona to be with him.

    In November of 2001, Kerri Faye Brown was charged with several financial based crimes. It was not until forensic tests matched the murder weapon (gun) to Kerri Faye Brown's boyfriend, was she charged with Mina Pajela's murder. In 2002, prosecutor's dropped the charges against Kerri Faye Brown in order to have more time to build up the case and in 2004 charges were refiled against her.

    Kerri Faye Brown was scheduled to go to trial in August of 2005 for the crimes of manslaughter and theft by deception. Before the trial began, Kerri Faye Brown pleaded no contest to both charges (manslaughter and theft by deception) and was sentenced to up to 30 years in prison.

    Kerri Faye Brown maintains her innocence and stated that "she took the plea because she was tired of fighting and not because she was guilty (Kerri Faye Brown, 2005)".

    There isn't much information on this crime available on the internet. Most of us can only assume what will happen when Kerri Faye Brown is released from prison. It was also stated that she confided in Mina Pajela that she was pregnant, yet none of this came out during the trial or afterwards when she was imprisoned.

Under oath, she testified how she waited hours for Sandee to get off work at the Green Iguana, and then followed her back to her Pinellas Park home, where she fired eight shots into Sandra Rozzo.[7] Tracey Humphrey testified in his own defense, stating that the killing was Ashley's idea.[8] The jury did not find him convincing. He was convicted of first-degree murder on February 25, 2006.[5] Even though he faced the death penalty, jurors opted for life without parole, believing that it would be a harsher punishment than death in this case.[9]
