CASE ENTRY

United States v. Vasquez

Fifth Circuit: No need to reconsider convictions of Mexican drug cartel leader who, among many other crimes, dismembered a 6-year-old with an axe in front of her parents. (Click here for a news story.) Even though many of the crimes were committed abroad, U.S. law can be enforced because the cartel leader directed the flow of drugs into America.
