A United States Magistrate Judge has denied bail to prominent El Paso attorney Marco Delgado, who was recently charged* in connection with allegations that he is a money launderer for the Mexican Milenio Cartel. Did the Court find that he was a danger to the community or a flight risk or both ?
Law enforcement testimony apparently established that there was strong evidence of guilt. Delgado took possession of two duffel bags containing $1m, that previously was seized from a cash courier by law enforcement in Atlanta, and who later cooperated in the investigation. There was also testimony that Delgado had accounts in Switzerland and the Turks & Caicos Islands, and that he had traveled to Cuba.
