BREAKING: Prosecutors Seek One Year Prison Time For Yuma County, Arizona “Ballot Mule” – Hearing Postponed Until September 1 AFTER Primary Election
Two San Luis women were set to be sentenced after pleading guilty to their roles in an illegal ballot trafficking operation that stole the 2020 Election from President Trump, but the hearing was pushed back again until September 1st.
Trump-Endorsed AZ Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake shared the original hearing date this morning on Twitter along with a video of ballot traffickers who were busted by AZ State Senate Candidate Gary Snyder. Snyder’s footage was later used by law enforcement to indict the San Luis Mules.
Today is the sentencing day of Guillermina Fuentes.
Ms. Fuentes was the mule captured on camera by @Gary4AZSenate at the scene of the crime.
What happened in 2020 was unforgivable.
Let’s hope the punishment fits the crime.

The women will remain free until after the August 2nd Primary Election while prosecutors seek a one-year prison sentence for former Mayor of San Luis and Gadsden Elementary School Board member Guillermina Fuentes. One year is good but not nearly enough. She helped steal an election for crying out loud!
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Guillermina Fuentes finally pleaded guilty more than 15 months after she was indicted on four felony charges. The heavier charges of Forgery and Conspiracy were dropped in Fuentes’ plea agreement and she only pleaded guilty to one minor count of ballot abuse.
In March, Alma Juarez pleaded guilty to one count of ballot abuse after admitting to police that Guillermina Fuentes handed her ballots with instructions to deposit them in a dropbox. Fuentes initially pleaded not guilty; however, after the release of “2000 Mules” featuring whistleblower testimony from San Luis, Fuentes changed her plea to guilty.
Because the Forgery charges were dropped against Fuentes, Arizona Senate Candidate Gary Snyder released his undercover footage that was used in the indictments and proved that Fuentes was forging ballot signatures on envelopes. It is unclear why the charges were dropped with this evidence.
The hearing has now been pushed back even further to September 1st.
U.S. News reported,
Prosecutors are seeking a one-year prison sentence for a school board member in southern Arizona for illegally collecting four early ballots during the 2020 primary election.
But if probation is imposed instead, prosecutors said the judge should then enforce a provision of Guillermina Fuentes’ plea deal that bars her from holding public office while on probation. Fuentes and another woman, Alma Juarez, were scheduled to be sentenced Thursday afternoon on a ballot abuse conviction in Yuma, but the hearing has been postponed until Sept. 1.
Authorities say Fuentes, a former San Luis mayor, ran a sophisticated operation using her status in Democratic politics in the Arizona border city to persuade voters to let her gather and, in some cases, fill out their ballots. But the crime she admitted in court last month does not involve filling out ballots or any broader efforts.
In a court filing Wednesday, prosecutors said Fuentes “appears to have been caught on video running a modern-day political machine seeking to influence the outcome of the municipal election in San Luis, collecting votes through illegal methods, and then using another person to bring the ballots the last few yards into the ballot box.”
Fuentes and Juarez each pleaded guilty to a charge of ballot abuse, acknowledging they collected early ballots for people who weren’t family members, didn’t live with them or weren’t receiving care from them.
Fuentes’ conviction is a felony punishable by as little as probation or as much as two years in prison. Juarez’s conviction is a misdemeanor, and under her plea agreement, if she has cooperated as promised she will be sentenced to probation and prosecutors will not seek jail time.
Fuentes and Juarez were seen with several mail-in envelopes outside a cultural center in San Luis on the day of the 2020 primary election, according to reports from investigators. The ballots were taken inside and dropped in a ballot box.
The criminal ballot traffickers will continue to roam the streets, able to funnel more ballots and steal the August 2nd Primary Elections.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, Mark Brnovich received the video evidence months before the 2020 General Election, and he still allowed these criminals to remain free and steal the Presidential Election. Brnovich is doing it again, letting Arizona down.
The Mules need to be locked up until after the 2022 election and beyond.
