"Now Fuentes, one of the criminal conduits between Honduran officials and drug traffickers, faces a possible life behind bars,” he added.
In 2009, the drug dealer established a cocaine laboratory in the Cortes department where "hundreds of kilograms of cocaine" were produced each month. In 2013, Fuentes paid a bribe of at least US$25,000 to JOH who was at the time the Congress' chairman.
U.S. Federal judge Kevin Castel will deliver Fuentes' sentence on June 22. He will also hand over on March 30 the verdict of Tony Hernandez, whose trial began last week.
