Former Venezuelan judge faces sentencing in Miami in drug money case

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 03:34
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - A former Venezuelan judge faces sentencing in Miami federal court next week for money laundering, extortion and conspiring to obstruct justice after U.S. prosecutors accused him of taking bribes from a South American drug cartel boss, according to court records. Benny Palmeri-Bacchi was scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, but the hearing was delayed until Monday to allow more time for a hearing, a courtroom deputy said. The former judge pleaded guilty in November to the three charges, each carrying a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, as part of a deal with prosecutors. Palmeri-Bacchi was arrested last summer after flying into Miami for a family vacation at Disney World.
