For that he was sentenced in October to nine years in prison. While this happened, the office of the prosecutor of Veracruz was imprisoning his immediate circle: Bravo, Bermudez and Audirac.
The prosecutor's office has convicted that it is permitted that the likely perpetrators of enforced disappearances and of the sack of Veracruz to face their processes in freedom. According to the office headed by the prosecutor Jorge Winckler “new criteria jurisdicionales” are allowing the exit of the jail of those responsible.
