Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat
Alfredo Beltran Leyva was handed down a “life” sentence today. Judge Richard J Lyon, imposed the sentence in a Washington D.C. courtroom.
The 46 year old Alfredo, had requested a sentence of life,. He was 35 years old at the time of his 2008 Mexico arrest. He has been incarcerated continually since that date. Alfredo, the baby brother of Arturo and Hector Beltran Leyva, leaders of the Beltran Leyva, was betrayed by El Chapo Guzmán, who provided information to authorities, that resulted in the arrest of Alfredo. El Chapo swapped the information in exchange for the prison release of his son Archivaldo. Archivaldo had been incarcerated three years by 2008, with little hope of being released for years. He was released within 90 days of Alfredo’s arrest with the government declaring the action was the result of the case having “no evidence”.
Alfredo’s brother Arturo was enraged at the betrayal, and a split between the two groups and brutal war commenced.
It is suspected that is was on the orders of Arturo, that El Chapo’s son Edgar was gunned downed in 2008 at a Culiacán shopping center parking lot. (left)
The two families had been very close, with multiple marriages within and between, members within the Beltran Leyva and Guzmán family.
Alfredo was once married to El Chapo’s first cousin, and currently married to a Chapo niece.

|Judge Lyon signed the order of forfeiture this week. Without supporting hard evidence, and relaying of the word/testimony of such credible witnesses as Edgar La Barbie Valdez, judge Lyon accepted the claim of the United States that Alfredo has 10 Billion dollars in assets.
There has been a recent trend in the claim of ridiculous amounts of forfeitures. Since 2013, three CDG defendants had 10B forfeitures against them, and El Chapo has one in the amount of 14B.
One can only guess the reason why this trend has been established. Perhaps to counter bad publicity, and low support for the handling of the drug war including minimal favorable results. Those who are not schooled in the drug war, are more likely to accept the inflated forfeiture figures, and surmise that the actions by the U.S. government is somehow paying off getting narco bigs off the street.
Alfredo is appealing his sentence.
In December, Alfredo Guzman Beltran aka “El Mochomito” was arrested in Mexico. He is the son of Alfredo. Leading up to the arrest, the younger Beltran was in an intense conflict with the sons of El Chapo
