Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
My name is Cris Hernandez. On June 18, the Casa Grande Dispatch wrote an article concerning Roberto Hernandez.
Near the end of the article it mentions a brother. I am the brother in question. As the article noted, I was a defendant. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office described my involvement as a major player in a drug cartel, who laundered money and distributed drugs.
The direct physical evidence of my involvement was a wiretap call that intercepted my voice discussing plans to transport wholesale amounts of marijuana.
The intercepted wiretap call, and the transcript can be heard in its entirety at the following link: https://soundcloud.com/cris-hernandez-842992375/call-session-4387.
The call is only 38 seconds in length. Pinal County claimed the individual answering the phone, “Chris,” was in fact me. Pinal County claimed after the telephone call, I proceeded to the desert and retrieved bales of marijuana and transported the bales to Tucson.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize Chris was a juvenile. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office should have immediately realized this when Chris had to be asked if he had a driver’s license.
Incidentally, it took the state 408 days to admit Call Session 4387, nor any other intercepted telephone calls, intercepted my voice.
How did Pinal County and the Attorney General’s Office get away with this? Immunity. I invite you to listen to the federal wiretap call, please share with your family and friends.
If allowed by the Dispatch, in a week or so, I will explain why state prosecutors and investigators are not entitled to immunity and should have been criminally prosecuted for tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice and conspiracy.
