On the early hours of Thursday, Justice Miguel Ángel Eufracio sentenced former Nuevo León governor Rodrigo Medina de la Cruz to preventive custody at the Topo Chico penitentiary in Monterrey on possible accounts of embezzlement and crimes against the state.

The Nuevo León government issued a statement informing that Medina de la Cruz could face up to 12 years in prison according to the justice’s deliberation on the account of crimes against the state that amount to 3.1 billion pesos ($147 million).

After an 18-hour meeting, the Prosecutor’s Office determined that the former governor must stand trial for the accounts against him. The defense sought an amparo ( Mexican constitutional legal process that protects citizens and their basic rights) against preventive custody which was rejected by the arraignment judge.
