BULK CASH SMUGGLER FAILS TO SHOW UP FOR HER SENTENCING

Judges that allow arrest bulk cash smugglers to bond out always run the risk that they will run.Vanessa Weaver, who pled guilty to bulk cash smuggling in  Federal Court in South Texas*, failed to appear at her sentencing. She was apparently working for a narcotics smuggling organisation whose ringleader was sentenced to 25 years in Federal Prison.

It appears from the record that she failed to agree to the government's version of the facts, at a hearing. When she failed to appear for sentencing, her bond was estreated and forfeited, and she was indicted for Failure to Appear at Sentencing, which carries a maximum penalty of ten years.

She subsequently appeared in court, with counsel, and was remanded into custody. She has not yet been sentencing on the bulk cash smuggling charges.
