Last of the Arrellanos goes to court

(Eduardo Arrellano goes to court)…The 56 year old is the last of the Arrellano Brothers.

He has been in a San Diego federal jail since before September when he was extradited to the United States from Mexico. He was arrested in Mexico following a shoot-out in 2008. The Arrellano Brothers at one time were the most ruthless, controlling Drug Cartel along the California/Mexico Border, as well as pretty much all of Baja California. The territory has since been taken over by the Sinaloa Cartel. Eduardo Arrellano was expected to enter a guilty Plea in Federal Court, but it was unclear exactly what he was pleading Guilty to. A deal had been worked out with prosecutors, but details have not been revealed. A much weaker Arrellano still exists, controlled by a family member tutored by Eduardo Arrellano.
