MEXICAN KINGPIN PLEADS GUILTY TO MONEY LAUNDERING

Tijuana Cartel Kingpin Benjamin Arellano-Felix has changed his plea to guilty in US District Court in San Diego*. The Plea Agreement, which saves him from a potential 140-year sentence, reportedly states that he will receive a maximum sentence of 25 years.

Arellano-Felix has pled to:
(1) Money Laundering Conspiracy
(2) Racketeering (RICO)

There is also a forfeiture of $100m in assets, which may not be recoverable in the US.
