As announced, this Tuesday, August 30, the oral trial was held against Francisco Huaiquipán, who risked a 10-year prison sentence for the crime of drug trafficking.
It should be remembered that, on September 4, 2021, the former footballer was surprised attempting to enter illicit items and phones inside the Colina 1 Penitentiary Compliance Center.
On that occasion, the “Huaiqui” tried to pass the Gendarmerie control carrying 38 mobile phones, in addition to cocaine and base paste.
During the formalization hearingJudge Lilian Sáez explained that “the accused Francisco Huaiquipán Castillo appeared at the Colina I parcel and review sector” aboard a truck.
The objective -explained the persecutor- was “to bring 19 sacks of cement and different construction materials to tower 3 B (where her son is for the crime of homicide). When the Gendarmerie personnel reviewed the truck’s cargo, they realized that eight 281.5-gram cannabis wrappers were hidden inside the cement bags, one 8.94-gram container wrapper of cocaine hydrochloride , a wrapper containing 2.83 grams of ketamine, in addition to 38 cell phones.
Huaiquipan in freedom
With obvious tension, the former soccer player faced the trial scheduled for this Tuesday. However, his previous good conduct and acknowledgment of the imputed crimes allowed him to regain his freedom.
Thus, the former Colo Colo player must serve a sentence of 3 years and 1 day of supervised release, subject to Gendarmerie controls. In addition, he must pay a fine of 5 UTM (about 300 thousand pesos).
Darío Guajardo, the ex-soccer player’s lawyer, explained to 24 hours that “in exchange for an acknowledgment of the facts, made by the accused, the Prosecutor’s Office proposes a much lower sentence than what could originally be requested in an oral trial.”
“Our compliance is manifest and ostensible, since it implies compliance in freedom, in this case with intensive supervised freedom,” he added.
Through a video, the Huaiqui thanked the support of those who remained expectant regarding their situation. “I want to thank all the people who were aware of my process, my lawyer, the Colocolina people, especially my family, my wife, my mother-in-law,” said “Toqui de La Legua.”
