A Mexican woman was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to laundering $ 15 million to the ctoSinaloa cartel, reported this Thursday Department of Justice (DOJ).

Bianca Acedo-Ojeda, 34, from Sinaloa, Mexico, was sentenced this Wednesday in the District Court for the Southern District of California to spend 10 years in prison for laundering approximately $ 15 million of the sale of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin trafficked to the United States by the Sinaloa cartel.

The woman was extradited from Mexico to San Diego in November 2019 and last March he pleaded guilty to the crime of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The prosecution assures that Acedo-Ojeda agreed with his accomplices to convert millions of dollars of the proceeds from the sale of the drug to Mexican pesos and send them to the drug traffickers in Sinaloa.

US Attorney Randy Grossman said in a statement that “stopping the flow of funds to one of the world’s most violent criminal organizations is essential to disrupting its trafficking in narcotics and other crimes” in the country.

In addition to serving the sentence in a federal prison, the Mexican must pay a $ 50,000 fine.

Six other defendants, including Acedo-Ojeda’s brother, have pleaded guilty in this case and have already been sentenced, DOJ said.
