In a follow up to our previous coverage regarding Steven Knight’s imprisonment in Mexico, we received an email from Steven’s sister Bonnie. The Mexican government has handed down an unexpected 5 year sentence to Steven and Davis for what the Mexican Authorities are calling “money laundering”. Bonnie said “It has been 2 days of hell for all of us. On Monday I got a call from Steven and Davis the clerk of the court and the interpreter had just left, the bad news. They handed down a guilty verdict and 5 yrs.”
It has been reported that Steven’s Mexican Lawyers were not even notified of the verdict and it appears the Mexican judge just doesn’t care about the facts and based her ruling on the assumption that what they were doing was illegal.
We will work to get another phone call from Steven set up to try to get some more information.
