    Through the course of this conspiracy, it has become clear that Fahie is engaged in corruption and criminal activity at the highest levels. He has accepted bribes, he has agreed to pay bribes, he has conspired to import thousands of kilograms of a dangerous controlled substance, he has admitted to working with known drug dealers in the BVI, and he has expressed a willingness to inquire about the acquisition of firearms from a Senegalese contact – on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel. 

    Fahie added that his “reliable” criminal associate in the BVI was involved in moving both money and guns (apparently with the knowledge and acquiescence of Fahie). According to Fahie himself, he has been involved in this type of criminal activity for 15-20 years. His release would result in a danger to the community by allowing for continued drug trafficking from the BVI to the United States, and the ongoing protection of criminal activity provided by Fahie. Not only would Fahie himself serve as a danger to the community, but his freedom in society.

    Perhaps more concerning than the danger posed by Fahie is the severe risk that he will flee from prosecution if released on bond. Fahie presents a particularly concerning risk of flight because he has a compelling reason to flee, he has a demonstrated disregard for the rule of law, he has the connections and ability to flee, and he has extremely limited connections to the Southern District of Florida. 

    As an initial matter, Fahie is facing a very high guidelines sentence after conviction, along with whatever political consequences he may face. At the very low end, the Defendant is facing a sentence of 235 months, or approximately 20 years. His eventual sentence provides a clear and compelling reason to flee from prosecution if released on bond. 

    Not only that, but the Defendant has repeatedly shown a complete and utter disregard for the rule of law, along with a willingness to obstruct justice. Instead of fulfilling his oath of office, and carrying out his duties as required, Fahie did the exact opposite. He accepted bribes, committed crimes, worked with drug dealers, and agreed to pay bribes. He was approached by a purported member of the Sinaloa Cartel with a lucrative criminal opportunity, and instead of turning the cartel in, he joined them. 

    Through this investigation, it has become clear that Fahie is corrupt to the core. His actions lead to only one conclusion: that Fahie believes he is above the law. And that’s not just in this case, but – according to Fahie – for the past 15-20 years. This was not his “first rodeo,” no no no, “NOT AT ALL.”

    In addition to the foregoing, the evidence against the Defendant is overwhelming. He and his co-conspirators were captured on multiple audio and/or video recorded meetings or calls. He repeatedly expressed his interested in pursuing this criminal conspiracy, despite being given multiple opportunities to withdraw. He explained that he had a history of criminal activity, and had done this type of thing before. The evidence of the Fahie’s guilt is substantial and indisputable.
