I did a knee jerk and edited this post based on the information from Butterfield. I have since verified that his information was incorrect, and now stand by my original post.
Background..... I will qualify this first part as "rumor" although it has been verified by reliable sources, including a picture of him driving the Caddie... so you can believe this or not. ..... Daniel had a lawyer from Rocky Point to whom he gave one of the IPX Caddies as part of his payment for service. When this lawyer got into the weeds of what Daniel wanted him to do, he gave back the car and refused to represent him. Evidently no one else there wanted to be involved, either. Vicente Oros wasn't kidding when he told us Daniel has no community support in RP.
So this is the Notario (lawyer) Daniel has hired and who filed the criminal complaint for him....
Only the BEST your money can buy for good ol' Butterfield! Here are 2 articles about Alfredo Vergara, Daniel's attorney.... I have 2 more being translated to add soon.
Drug trafficker Alfredo Vergara, in the
fraud of Ejido Heraclio Bernal
Written by Redacción Penascodigital.com published Tuesday, 13 May 2014 14:55
Caborca, Sonora.- The lawyer Alfredo Vergara Alvarez, alleged money launderer and cocaine drug trafficker belonging to the Caborca Cartel, is at the center of the storm of the illegal assignment of land to the ejido. Heraclio Bernal, a fake ejido who, using the name of the famous bandit robber, has appropriated politicians and businessmen from Hermosillo, among whom are ex-collaborators of Manlio Fabio Beltrones.
Alfredo Vergara Álvarez, currently under investigation by the PGR for money laundering, was imprisoned in the United States for the sale of cocaine belonging to the Caborca Cartel. After leaving his long sentence he has been clothed by important ex-politicians and businessmen, among whom are Luis Fernando Heras Portillo, a politician who defines himself as close to Mr. Manlio Fabio Beltrones, and who is a shareholder in the tourist complex Las Palomas in Puerto Peñasco, where he is a member of the Tourism Commissioner, CP Javier Tapia Camou. In the next few days we will provide an investigation with all the names and prestanombres that are found in the Ejido Patito [Ejido Patito is Spanish for Fake Identity] "Hercalio Bernal", where several bandits want to strip the City of Caborca and several individuals, of valuable coastal land.
Who is Alfredo Vergara?
On August 5, 1988, the Yuma Court issued an arrest warrant against Alfredo Vergara Álvarez for the crimes of "conspiracy, drug trafficking (cocaine) for sale" and "directing a criminal organization." Vergara was already in custody, in the possession of the DEA. The Court set a bond of five million dollars. Vergara could not cover the bond, so he had to stay in prison until the trial.
As he tells the file in his own voice and that of the DEA agents who captured him, his criminal career begins in the courts of Nogales, taking drug traffickers out of jail at the point of bribes. Later he ventures into the cocaine business, but falls into the hands of the DEA, which was hunting him. Undercover agents of that agency cite him in the United States, ask him to give them a certain amount, and after delivering the first hundred pounds of the drug, he is arrested and sentenced to prison for five years (because it is his first crime proven in U.S). Vergara, among other businesses, urged him to place a ton of cocaine that his organization stored in Caborca. Due to his haste, he could only deliver the first fifty kilos, because he was immediately arrested.
We attach a partial translation into Spanish of the criminal file of Alfredo Vergara Álvarez, which, because it is very voluminous, exposes the most singular parts, such as the statements of the agent and Vergara. The full document in English is also attached.
After serving his sentence, Alfredo Vergara Álvarez returned to Mexico and continued to dedicate himself to the same. His office went into a crisis in 2005, as his partner Juan José Muñoz Acosta was executed: he appeared encased for living with a partner. However, Alfredo Vergara overcame the crisis. Vergara has always enjoyed protection in Mexico, because his business has never been interrupted by any type of police, army or Navy. Who is the politician who protects him? Draw your own conclusions.
GRAVI and the HOMEPORT of Peñasco: PGR investigates a subcontractor in charge of money laundering
Constructora Gran Visión ( GRAVI ), Luis Raymundo Cano's company, which was assigned the construction work of the breakwater of the Homeport of Puerto Peñasco (Sonora), has used the awarding of subcontracts of the work to an ex- drug trafficker that is now investigated by the PGR for money laundering.
Alfredo Vergara Álvarez , a drug trafficker who served a five-year sentence in the United States for cocaine trafficking, has now been tasked with awarding the subcontracts of Luis Cano's company. Well-informed sources have confirmed that the PGR is investigating him for money laundering, with a file in the Sonoita town, of which we have his corresponding inquiry number.
Among the people consulted in the city of Puerto Peñasco, no one understands the presence of this ex-delinquent in such a delicate role, unless he is representing the interests of third parties involved, that move in the underworld, and serve as a link for some type of collection.
The architect Luis Raymundo Cano is again, therefore, very close to an investigation of the PGR.
