Suspected Mexican Mafia Gang Member Found Guilty

August 2nd 2012   ·   14 Comments

CORPUS CHRISTI — James Hinojosa was found guilty by a jury for aggravated kidnapping Wednesday morning.

As the punishment phase started, prosecutors called in CCPD gang detectives to testify. Chief Martin Deleon testified about Hinojosa’s involvement with the Mexican mafia. Deleon told the jury about the tattoos that Hinojosa has covering his body that indicate he’s affiliated with one if not several local gangs.

Hinojosa’s prior convictions with drug possession and counterfeit money have led gang investigators to suspect him as a member of the Mexican mafia.

Hinojosa testified that his tattoos do not correlate to any gang affiliations. He swore before the court and said that he has a lot of body art simply because he likes tattoos. Hinojosa also told the jury that he is sorry for wasting their time with his poor choices.

“I’m sorry, I don’t want to spend life in prison over 150 dollar altercation with Mr. Trevino,” Hinojosa said.

However, the jury still found him guilty of his latest charge of aggravated kidnapping and will access punishment this afternoon.

  1. I understand he has been offered an option: Either go to jail or “volunteer” as a poll watcher for the obama re-election campaign (CREEP)

  2. Arie that is nut but believable.

  3. Dan Stubbins says:

    Let’s bring more of these quality guys into our country. Thank you Senate & Congress for protecting your constituents! Secure our borders!!!!!!!!!!

  4. He shouldn’t be given a choice in this matter. They should just put him in jail.

  5. Tough guy begging like a punk!

  6. Dan there are many people in the house that are working for securing the border. The Senate will not bring the bills to the floor and the White House is issuing the orders to make this country less secure. we must vote new people in the Senate and the White House if we want any chance at protecting our country.

  7. this is the reason why democrats/liberals should not have any power, Harry Reid, Nancy Piglosi and Obama are prime examples of it!

  8. Rip Rogers says:

    Hoelz, the few that are working to secure are FEW. This Open Borders for cheap labor illegal aliens (To support cheap labor business lobbies) has been going in a major way since 1986.
    MOST of the Globalist-RINOs like Bush and friends have supported NO rule of law. The worst illegal force began with GW BUSH! He made it easy for the Obummer to use the illegals to his advantage.
    The biggest invasion of illegal aliens came with the Bush Admin and thats the facts.
    Yes we are replacing the offenders with Constitutional Conservative TEA

  9. It’s about time our government did something with these hateful illegals.

Why do you think the drug cartels are more violent in Mexico than the U.S.A.
