KENS 5 Eyewitness News based out of San Antonio has recently interviewed Criminal Defense Attorney
Alfonso Cabañas of Cabañas Law Firm, PLLC to get some insight
into a federal crime case that is currently unfolding right in the heart of Texas.
The Houston branch of the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced January 6th, 2016 that three members of the Bandidos motorcycle group had been arrested
in San Antonio and Houston. Each one is accused of a slew of violent crimes,
including drug sale and possession, extortion, racketeering, and even
murder. If convicted, the three men could be locked up for life. But the
question news sources wanted to ask Attorney Cabañas was whether
or not the charges hold any substance.
In his interview with
KENS 5, Mr. Cabañas stated that the government had intentionally used
broad charges to snare the three individuals, similar to strategies used
in the past against suspected mafia members. By staying vague, the federal
government can throw charges at an entire group of people, regardless
of their involvement with alleged crimes; someone who has done nothing
could potentially be convicted simply for being affiliated with the Bandidos.
When analyzed closer in court, such blanket accusations could prove fragile.
