FGE indites former Veracruz judge on charges of public faith

Xalapa, Veracruz — The State Attorney General in Veracruz says charges have been brought against a former state judge. Charges for crimes against public faith and trafficking of influence committed to the detriment of public faith and public service respectively have been brought against Angélica “N”.

In a statement, the Fiscalía General del Estado (FGE) of Veracruz reports that “through the Ministerial Investigations Prosecutor’s Office, it obtained the indictment of Angélica “N” as allegedly responsible for crimes against public faith and trafficking of influence, committed to the detriment of public faith and public service respectively.

“Said accusation was the result of suitable, relevant and sufficient evidence presented by this State Prosecutor’s Office before a control and oral criminal procedure judge of the XI judicial district of Xalapa, based in Pacho Viejo.

“Within the framework of criminal process 297/2023, the judge determined to impose the precautionary measure of monthly periodic signature, economic guarantee and prohibition of leaving the country without authorization. The control judge set the continuation of the hearing.”

The former judge and candidate for the Senate for MC must pay a guarantee of 200,000 pesos and will continue the process in freedom, although she denounced that she had already been charged with these crimes and indicated the matter as illegal.

Former judge Angélica “N” is again at the center of judicial attention after being arrested June 5 2023 in Xalapa, accused of shooting at police officers who stopped her while she was driving in her vehicle.

The governor of Veracruz has also accused her of receiving bribes to free an alleged leader of organized crime, although no criminal action was taken against her due to lack of evidence.

On June 16 of last year, she was arrested in a hotel in Mexico City by elements of the State Attorney General’s Office, accused and linked to proceedings for the crimes of influence peddling and against public faith.

On February 6, 2024, the former judge was summoned to reconsider the indictment hearing for alleged crimes against public faith and influence peddling.
