The Federal Prosecutor’s Office proposed an agreement to the alleged drug trafficker César Emilio Peralta, “the Abuser” so that he pleads guilty.
According to the newspaper Puerto Rico El Nuevo Día, the information was offered this Thursday by federal prosecutor Max J. Pérez Bouret, during a virtual hearing before Judge Pedro Delgado.
“We have issued an offer for him to plead guilty. And that offer, given the magnitude of this case, is the offer that (chief of the federal prosecutor’s office) Stephen Muldrow has authorized in this case,” Pérez Bouret said, according to the newspaper.
The first package of evidence delivered to Peralta’s defense consisted of recordings and reports produced mostly by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the information explains.
It also explains that Peralta’s defense attorney, Joaquín Pérez, did not speak at the public hearing about the offer.
