Santana was a pugilist with result (24-3, 15 KOs) , he’s called “The Pride of Spanish Harlem,” and his website claims that he has tremendous potential for championships.
Even if you are not a fan the news that was reported has to be shocking.
According to reports just made, 12 people were arrested by New York cops on charges of being involved in an international cocaine trafficking ring. Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana is said to be one of them. The group is suspected of bringing cocaine into the USA via Puerto Rico. Evidence says Santana was in cahoots with the other 11 suspects in their failed attempt to pollute the streets with illegal and harmful drugs. What a credit to the community and to mankind. He should hang his head in shame, and if guilty have the book thrown at him.
If you or a close friend is arrested, hiring a New York Criminal Lawyer is essential for you. Not having a NY Criminal Attorney will lead to trouble in terms of not knowing your rights and options.
Santana has a fight scheduled in the coming months but these allegations have put his boxing career on hold for the moment and possibly forever. His arraignment was postponed to next Monday.
