In 2007, L.T. was arrested and detained in Louisiana for drug trafficking and L.T.

began cooperating with federal authorities. In January 2008, L.T. infonned federal

authorities that Alonzo Ramos, the defendant, came to the jail in Louisiana from Texas to

visit him unexpectedly. Ramos is an attorney from Laredo, Texas. L.T. explained that

Ramos visited him to make sure that L.T. was not cooperating with the authorities.

Consequently, federal authorities began recording phone calls between L.T. and Ramos in

February 2008.

On March 5, 2008, Ramos and L.T. spoke in a recorded telephone call. Ramos

offered to facilitate a monetary payment that was the proceeds of unlawful activity - drug

trafficking - to L.T. In a subsequent call that day, Ramos and L.T. discussed putting a

relative ofL.T. in touch with Ramos to receive the payment. Ramos also promised to

travel from Texas to Louisiana to visit L.T. later that week.

On March 7. 2008, as described in Count One ofthe pending information, Ramos

traveled to Louisiana from Texas with the intent to distribute the proceeds of an unlawful

activity, namely, a business enterprise involving the trafficking ofcontrolled substances,

and thereafter he performed and attempted to perform an act to distribute the proceeds of

During the meeting, Ramos informed L.T. that he had received $48,500, which were drug

trafficking proceeds, and that he had the money at his house in Laredo. Ramos and L. T.

then discussed the details of how the money would be transferred to L.T. Ramos agreed

to give the money to L.T:s relative.

wanted Ramos to deliver the money to his relative. Ramos told L.T. to have his relative

contact him. Unbeknownst to Ramos, L.T.'s relative was also cooperating with federal

law enforcement officers. On March 13,2008; L.T.'s relative contacted Ramos via

telephone. The phone call was recorded. Ramos instructed L.T.'s relative to meet him at

a location in Laredo; Texas. Later that day, Ramos gave L.T.'s relative the $48,500 at the
