Community : Suspect in Sharonville Murder Arrested in Mexico
Posted by admin on 2009/4/22 6:40:00 (2434 reads)

Today, April 22nd, 2009, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the arrest and commencement of a Mexican prosecution against 34 year-old Santiago Moreno  in the December, 2007 death of fellow Mexican nationals Jose De Jesus Davila Duenas, Manuel Davila Duenas, Conrado Lopez Guardado, Lino Guardado Davila. (read more about this case in this report)

On June 17, 2008 Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters and Assistant Prosecutor Michael Florez traveled to Mexico City, Mexico to present evidence to the Mexican authorities under Article Four of the Penal Code of Procedures for the Republic of Mexico.  Mr. Deters and Mr. Florez presented evidence to the Mexican authorities necessary to begin the apprehension and prosecution of Mexican national Santiago Moreno.

On April 19, 2009 Santiago Moreno was arrested in Tampico, Tampaulipas, which is located along the east coast of Mexico.

All of the Hamilton County cases have been unsealed and Case B 0901668 (4 counts of Aggravated Murder) has been released to the Republic of Mexico for prosecution in Mexico.


Prosecutor Deters commented, “I would like to thank the City of Sharonville, its police department and chief, and in particular Detective Aaron Blasky for their diligent work on this case.  I further commend Special Agent Clay Huesman of the FBI for all of his assistance.  The Mexican government deserves our thanks for their efforts in the apprehension and prosecution of Santiago Moreno.  Specifically the efforts of Miguel Mendez, Deputy Legal Attache of the Office of the Attorney General, Carlos Diaz de Leon of the Special Foreign Prosecution Unit and Mexican Consulate Juan M. Solana should be applauded.  The cooperation between our office and their government is extraordinary.  I have the greatest respect for these men and the jobs they perform and look forward to assisting them in any way for a successful prosecution.

There are two important conclusions from today's press conference:

1) the murder was not a result of a "hate crime", but a simple greed 

2) our justice system in Cincinnati pursues every criminal case, regardless of the people involved, whether they are US citizens or foreign nationals.

There were some voices in the community expressing concerns that there was not much visible activity in solving this case, because the victims were undocumented foreign nationals from Mexico, and therefore the case didn't get required attention.  Today's press conference should put such concerns to rest, as it explained why the investigation had to be sealed so Santiago Moreno wouldn't learn about it. 

And Cincinnati can continue with its reputation as a friendly city that values and promotes diversity, and a place that can be called home by all people, regardless of their country of origin.

Community : Sen. Kearney: Ohio Must Address Divisive Practice of Profiling
Posted by admin on 2009/4/10 7:10:00 (1740 reads)

(Columbus) – State Senator Eric H. Kearney (D- Cincinnati) introduced Senate Bill 107, legislation intended to deter racial profiling and build trust between Ohio’s ethnic minorities and law enforcement. The bill protects anyone from being investigated on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin.

“I have a deep respect and admiration for the law enforcement community. The intent of this legislation is not to undermine the officers who protect and serve us professionally and ethically. Rather, my hope is that minorities will feel empowered to work in concert with police to foster safer communities for everyone,” Kearney stated.

The bill gives oversight to the Ohio Civil Rights Commission to receive racial profiling complaints, offer mediation and conduct preliminary investigations of the allegations. Law enforcement agencies will also be responsible for maintaining policies to prohibit racial profiling.

“Ohio lags behind other states in addressing this issue. We need to join with the majority of the country in enacting legislation to curb racial profiling,” said Kearney. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 26 states have passed legislation concerning racial profiling, including West Virginia and Kentucky.

Senator Eric H. Kearney represents parts of Cincinnati, St. Bernard, Elmwood Place, Cleves, Cheviot, Norwood, Golf Manor, Columbia Township, Deer Park, Silverton, Springfield Township, North Bend and Addyston.
