Position of Government on Sentencing of Dámaso López Núñez, alias “El Licenciado”

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

Most of El Lic’s documents are sealed.  The document below was filed by the government indicating sentencing considerations.  One can see why Lic would cut a deal.  My position has always been that entering into these agreements with narco leaders is a mistake and flies in the face of the work and money that goes into this so called drug war.  A failed war.  Deals should be scarce and not with top layer leaders.
