Dominican Republic’s most famous inmate again requests parole

Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s most famous inmate on Friday again asked the court’s and society’s clemency for her part in the money-laundering case of her paramour, Puerto Rican kingpin Jose Figueroa Agosto.

Sobeida Felix stood before San Cristóbal sentencing judge Willy de Jesus Nuñez to request her release on parole, for which the court set another hearing to hand down a ruling January 30.

She cited her mother’s illness, among other reasons, to request her release on parole.

Felix is serving five years on a money laundering conviction in connection with drug trafficking by Figueroa’s network.

The prosecution meanwhile, argued that Felix has yet to repay for her damage caused to society.
