Gary SewellThe Chief Magistrate ruled on Tuesday, October 22nd, that there was enough evidence presented by the United States Government to have Gary Sewell extradited to that country.

Sewell has been in the Belizean courts fighting extradition from 2010. The U.S. is claiming that Gary along with his brothers Mark and Dwayne imported cocaine into the U.S. through Mexico. They are alleged to have sold marijuana in Texas from December 1994 to August 1997. They are also accused of moving as much as 1 million dollars from drug proceeds to Houston, Lakeland, Florida and Belize.

After the Chief Magistrate’s ruling, Sewell has 15 days to apply to the Supreme Court for a Writ of Habeas Corpus. If that fails Sewell will be extradited to the U.S. to face charges there.

In July of 2010 a Supreme Court Judge ruled that Mark Sewell should be extradited to the U.S. to face drug charges.
In 2007 Dwayne Sewell pleaded guilty to two counts of importing drugs into the United Statesand a count of money laundering. He is currently serving a 17 year sentence in the U.S.
