How to Become a Bounty Hunter



15 Tied to Texas Mexican Mafia Charged with Racketeering Conspiracy, Assault, and More

They say things are bigger in Texas, and a recent Tex-Mex plate of indictments and potential sentences certainly are.

A group of members and associates of the Texas Mexican Mafia (TMM) have been indicted with a buffet of charges that may net them decades in prison, the FBI announced in a press release on Tuesday.

The 9-count, 15-defendant indictment charges men from Uvalde and Crystal City, Texas, including:

Jorge Abel Ramirez (a/k/a “Hondo,” a/k/a “Superdope”), age 32; Geronimo Torres (a/k/a “Jerry,” a/k/a “G”), age 32; Benito Benavides (a/k/a “Benny”), age 48; Chris Gutierrez (a/k/a “Fire”), age 19; Albert Torres (a/k/a “Terrible”), age 41; Robert Marcus Castro (a/k/a “Tiny”), age 32; Eric Velasquez Solis (a/k/a “Kilo”), age 32; Mario Zavala, age 26; Rodolfo Villegas (a/k/a “Rudy”), age 31; Charles Martinez (a/k/a “Charlie”), age 29; Eliseo Sanchez, III, age 29; and Sebastian Cortinas (a/k/a “Seabass”), age 28.

Charges against the men, returned on the 12th of October and unsealed on Tuesday, cover a variety of crimes related to drugs and violence, including “attempted murder, retaliation against an informant, extortion, and distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine,” according to the FBI. Three of the men–Ramirez, Gutierrez and Torres–have been charged with conspiring to attempt to kill an informant on November 22, 2010.

All defendants but Cortinas are in federal custody.
