Revisiting the Arrest of Ramsey Muniz and the Entrapment Defense
Posted by editor on Monday, July 19 @ 13:43:17 EDT (2560 reads)

Dear Friends:

Below are excerpts of the last appeal submitted by Ramsey Muniz. The appeal cites the trial transcript and describes how the government maneuvered and set up Ramsey Muniz to obtain a conviction at any cost – intentionally, maliciously, and with deceit. Feel free to share this legal document. It is public court information.

The judge did not rule in our favor, but this does not change truth. It does not remove the manner in which the government maneuvered and set up Ramsey Muniz to obtain a wrongful conviction.

We send this information for the sake of our supporters, and to share the facts with the general public. The National Committee to Free Ramsey Muniz asks that readers forward this information to law students and organizations and that are concerned about freeing those who are wrongfully incarcerated.


Ramsey Ramiro Muniz was arrested on March 11, 1994, in Lewisville, Texas. The events leading to his arrest began in Houston the day before that date. (T.R. 197-1990).

On March 10, 1994, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agent Kimberly Elliott received a telephone call in Dallas from the DEA Office in Houston asking her to maintain surveillance on a man (later identified as Donacio Medina) flying from Houston and arriving at Dallas’s Love field. (Id.). At approximately 6:00 p.m. on that date, Agent Elliott saw a man at Love Field airport fitting the description supplied by the Houston DEA office meet Muniz in the airport. The two of them were met at the curb by a man driving a gray car. (T.R. 100-200, 390). The gray car, with three people in it, was followed north from the airport to the Frisco, Texas, area when the surveillance was discontinued. (T.R. 200).

Soon after the surveillance had been discontinued, Agent Elliott received another phone call from the Houston DEA office during which she was given a telephone and a room number for a Ramada Inn in Lewisville, Texas. (T.R. 201-202). Agent Elliott went to the Ramada Inn at 10:30 p.m. on March 10, 1994, and spoke with some of its employees. (T.R. 202). She learned that Muniz had checked into the Ramada Inn under his own name. She took copies of his business card left by him at the front desk and of the telephone toll records for the motel’s rooms. (T.R. 204-206). Agent Elliott also wrote down the license plate of the car parked in the parking lot. (T.R. 202), Surveillance was discontinued until the following morning.

B. Trial counsel failed to raise an entrapment defense when Movant-Appellant acting as a legal assistant became the target of a DEA investigation through his client acting as an informant.

Page 3 of Appeal

In this regard, and based on the facts of this case, Muniz’s initial contention is that the trial counsel failed to request the affirmative defense of entrapment. Muniz asserts that he was induced to violate the law by the activities of Donacio Medina, a government agent. Once Medina decided to cooperate with the DEA in Houston, he was, for the purposes of the entrapment doctrine, acting for the government. United States v. Martinez-Carcano, 557 F.2d 966, 970 (5th Cir. 1977).

Thereafter, there was ample evidence of government inducement in the limited sense applicable here. For example, prior to the fact that Muniz accepted the keys from Juan Gonzales and moved the white car from the Ramada Inn to the La Quinta Inn on the morning of March 11, 1994, there was a lot of speculation, innuendo, and conjecture that attempted to show that Muniz knew there was cocaine in the trunk of the white car. But the real issue here is the ultimate question basic to all claims of entrapment: Was Muniz ready and willing to commit the offense if given the opportunity to do so, or was Muniz just an innocent victim of a government set up?

Muniz claims the answers to these questions would have developed better at trial if counsel would have requested the defense of entrapment. Evidence adduced at trial clearly showed that Muniz was in Dallas to visit clients. Medina was a client recommended by [M.A.], a prominent businessman from Matamoros, Mexico. (T.R. 969). There is no evidence to show that Medina and Muniz were acquainted prior to their meeting at Dallas’ Love Field. In fact, the evidence proves contrary.

Thus, this transient relationship begs the questions: How often do drug dealers do an $800,000 deal with a perfect stranger? Who supplied the cocaine? Who was supposed to receive the cocaine? Ostensibly, the government is unconcerned. The conclusion is obvious. Medina was supposed to put the cocaine in the hands of Ramsey Muniz. Muniz was the target of the DEA sting operation from its inception. And Medina was the confidential informant who set up the deal.

In its opinion, the Fifth Circuit stated that Agents had reasonable suspicion justifying stop of defendants where agents knew that they were connected with activity of suspected drug trafficker with whom the DEA was negotiating a drug sale. United States v. Gonzales, 79 F.3d 413, 422 (5th Cir. 1996). Indeed, the deal was done insofar as the Dallas’ DEA agents were concerned. Their objective was accomplished. Dallas DEA agents knew from the beginning what was going to happen from the time Medina left Houston until the scheduled meeting with Muniz and the DEA at 10:00 a.m. on March 11, 1994.

The DEA through Medina acting as their agent were in complete control of the situation. There is no other explanation why DEA Agent Elliott was able to break off surveillance at 11:00 p.m. on March 10, 1994, and reassemble at 8:45 a.m. the following morning. They knew the cocaine had arrived and was stashed in the trunk of the white car. They knew the cocaine would not be transported during the night because they had scheduled the deal to go down at approximately 10:00 a.m. on the morning of March 11, 1994. They knew Medina would be taken to the airport at Love Field, and they knew that Muniz and Gonzales were supposed to move the car to the La Quinta Inn. They were just waiting for Muniz and Gonzales to get into the car and move it before they could make the arrest under a pretextual investigative stop.

Furthermore, Fed-Ex driver Gallardo testified that he took Medina to the Classic Inn. When Medina did not see the car he was looking for at the Classic Inn, he asked Gallardo to take him to the Ramada Inn in Lewisville, Texas. Presumably, Media was looking for the white car which had already been moved to the Ramada Inn by Hernandez who was registered at the Classic Inn from March 6 thru 10, 1994. Id. at 424, 425. The question of how the white car arrived at the parking lot of the Ramada Inn was never answered. However, it was confirmed later by Agent Elliott after she wrote down the license plates that the white car was indeed located at the Ramada Inn before she broke off surveillance at 11:00 p.m. on March 10, 1994.

Upon their arrival at the Ramada Inn around 10:30 p.m. on March 10, 1994, Gallardo and Medina saw Muniz carrying a bag of groceries. (T.R. 903). Muniz and Medina went into the lobby together where Medina was hailed by a young man in his mid-to-late twenties. At that time, Medina took leave of Muniz’s company and was not seen by Muniz again until the following morning at approximately 8:30 a.m. Apparently, the young man in his mid-to-late twenties was D----- Hernandez. After parking the white car in the parking lot, he waited for Medina to arrive. All these events that occurred prior to the time that Muniz was arrested after driving the white car happened without Muniz’s knowledge. Knowledge is precisely the element of the offenses charged that was not successfully challenged by defense counsel at trial.

The government has the burden to prove each element of the offenses, and that one element of the offense in question is the “knowing” action by Muniz. The word “knowingly” means that the act was done voluntarily and intentionally and not because of mistake or accident. United States v.Rubio, 834 F.2d 442, 448 (5th Cr. 1987).

Irma Muniz Reports Profound Visit with Ramsey at Beaumont Prison
Posted by editor on Sunday, May 23 @ 12:02:58 EDT (2043 reads)

Dear Friends:

Ramsey and I have just shared a most powerful and profound visit after all these years of confinement, and we will be visiting for the next 2 days. I continue to be amazed and impressed with his persistence for his freedom and the freedom of all humanity.

We will be praying that President Barack Obama will consider and grant his application for commutation of sentence (pardon) which we recently submitted. Nevertheless, we will be in the process of scheduling appointments with attorney Dick DeGuerin from Houston, Texas and Roy Barrera, Jr. from San Antonio, TX, to begin the legal process of reopening his case.

We will prove not only his innocence, but the injustices and unusual cruel punishment that Ramsey has suffered for the last 16 and a half years.

Within the next 2 months we will seek congressional support from your U.S. congressman to have Ramsey transferred to Three Rivers FCI or Bastrop FCI which will place him closer to our family and to those who continue to support his freedom.

If you wish to relay any messages, please do so since I will be with Ramsey until Monday.

May God bless you, and I will stay in touch!


Editor's Note: the above email was received from Irma Muniz on May 23, 2010. Below is an email from May 15, 2010--gm

My Ultimate Spiritual Power is to Die Fighting for my God-given Freedom

Dear Friends:

Ramsey Muniz, who was at the forefront of the Chicano Civil Rights Movement, has been incarcerated for nearly 17 years of his life, for a crime he did not commit.

Evidence clearly shows that government attorneys withheld the evidence which showed the identity of the actual culprit. It was kept from the defense attorney, the court, and the jury until it was too late. What does it take for an innocent man to be given his freedom? When will Mexicans ever get the same justice given to others?

* * * * *

“Ramsey, your humility, your suffering, your innocence and poverty in your present imprisonment has transformed you into the most powerful symbol of human salvation and freedom.”

--The late Dr. Salvador Alvarez
Father of Irma Muñiz

“If I should die in this imprisonment, it is my ultimate spiritual power to die fighting for my God-given freedom. The eternal freedom becomes a spiritual dimension of human desire for all humanity.”

--Ramsey Muñiz

* * * * *

May 10, 2010

The time has come! Yes, we have suffered for a long time and it is time for the world to know. Please understand that the world itself is going through drastic changes as if this were a message from God.

In my dreams, the messages received from all the spirits is that our time as a people, as a raza, as a nation of Mexicanos has come. It is as if the great giant has finally awakened from a long sleep. Please believe me when I tell you that the issue of who we are, why we are, when we are, and where we are going will eventually include our case for freedom.

Ramsey Muñiz - Tezcatlipoca

Editor's Note: one more email gratefully received late night May 23--gm

The messages below represent a profound awakening of spiritual consciousness pertaining to humanity.


“Freedom is not handed to you. You must make it, and you make it by searching for it.”

“God does not want to do everything, so as to take free will from you and part of His glory that falls to you.”

“We must embrace the cultures of others so that others may embrace our own. Let us remember, at the dawn of this new century, that our history is not over. We live in a continuous incomplete history."

"The lesson of our unfinished humanity is that when we exclude, we are made poorer and when we include, we are made richer. Will we have time to discover, touch, and count the number of brothers and sisters that we can say we have embraced and counted among us? None of us will ever be able to find the humanity within us unless we are able to find it first in others. The place where the different races come together is the source of the greatest cultures.”

--The Late Dr. Salvador Alvarez
Father of Irma Muñiz

Ramsey Muniz: Celebrating King's Life
Posted by editor on Sunday, January 17 @ 21:11:37 EST (1257 reads)

“One day we will have to stand before the God of history and we will talk in terms of things we’ve done. Yes, we will be able to say we built gargantuan bridges to span the seas, we built gigantic buildings to kiss the skies. Yes, we made our submarines to penetrate oceanic depths. We brought into being many other things with our scientific and technological power.

“It seems that I can hear the God of history saying, That was not enough! But I was hungry, and ye fed me not. I was naked, and ye clothed me not. I was devoid of a decent sanitary house to live in, and ye provided no shelter for me. And consequently, you cannot enter the kingdom of greatness. If ye do it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto me. That’s the question facing America today.”

--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I believe that peace is unstable where citizens are denied the right to speak freely or worship as they please; choose their own leaders or assemble without fear.”

--President Barack Obama

“I do not believe that our society in this 21st century can ever live up to its promise of justice, equality, and the fundamental rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, until it stops insidious oppression, discrimination, prejudice, hostility, and my imprisonment on the basis of political, cultural, and spiritual philosophy as it pertains to the freedom to all humanity.”

--Ramiro R. Muñiz

Even though I have been confined in the prisons of America for sixteen years, I celebrate not the death of my brother, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but his life that continues to live in a most powerful, spiritual realm in this mode of darkness. His memorable life continues to demonstrate that we must have faith, courage, and the will in our hearts to struggle for our God-given rights. His life proved that the time has come for us to reunite and rise once again, and seek the rights for which he gave his life– freedom, justice, and equality.

In exile,
Ramsey - Tezcatlipoca

Irma Muniz: The Time is Now to Free Ramsey
Posted by editor on Sunday, January 03 @ 17:35:21 EST (1195 reads)

Dear Friends:

The year 2010 is a year for change as we have increased the efforts to free Ramsey Muniz! Support received on national and international levels demonstrates that the time is now!

On an international level, a recent article by Amigas de Mumia, México states,

"To the sound of drums, a little over a hundred of us demanded freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal outside the United States Embassy in Mexico City on December 9, 2009, as well as for Leonard Peltier, the men and women of MOVE, the Angola 3, Sundiata Acoli, Los Cinco, Francisco Torres, Hugo Pinnell, Ruchell Magee, Marilyn Buck, Dr. Mutulu Shakur, the Puerto Rican Independentistas, David Gilbert, Ramsey Muñiz, the environmental prisoners and all the social activists that this government intends to bury alive."

Our requests for prayers and spiritual intervention have made their way to India, as correspondence regarding Ramsey Muñiz was delivered to Amma. We feel blessed for a spiritual connection with Amma, a woman who is considered by many throughout the world as a living saint and prophet.

Nationally, we are most grateful for the support demonstrated by Rosa Rosales, National President of LULAC, who recently met with us to provide assistance in the efforts to free Ramsey Muñiz. The compassion and love that she demonstrates makes her a true leader, and we hold her in great esteem for the work that LULAC has done to help us.

Joe Ortiz, National Civil Rights Director for the American GI Forum, continues to provide support and we extend our gratitude to the American GI Forum for the assistance that they continue to provide.

As we move forward to free Ramsey Muñiz , the list of organizational support continues to grow, and we call on all organizations and individuals to join this movement. The need to unite in this humanitarian cause is critical and the time is now!

We continue to thank God for the signs given to us that Ramsey will obtain the freedom that he so rightfully deserves! Thank you for the assistance that you have provided to free Ramsey Muñiz.

Recent news and writings from Irma and Ramsey Muniz

Jesus Christ - Born to bring Love, Spirituality, Faith, Courage, and Freedom to all Humanity

Dec. 25, 2009

Dear Friends:

Ramsey, our families and I celebrate Christmas with you and share the profoundness of this glorious, spiritual day in our lives. Historically, on this special day, Jesus Christ was born to bring love, spirituality, faith, courage, and freedom to all humanity. Jesus' suffering, confinement, and crucifixion was and is the reason that humanity shall forever struggle for freedom and love.

We thank you with our hearts for making it possible for my husband, Ramsey, to return to Texas after fifteen long years in exile away from those who love him. This is only the beginning. It was destined that with your assistance, his freedom would become a part of our freedom and that of all humanity on this earth.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

With love,
Ramsey and Irma Alvarez Muñiz

Loving Spirits are With Ramsey

Dec. 6, 2009

"As a family we must reunite our hearts once again, and there is no right way or wrong way to experience spiritual healing. There is ultimately only a deepening into one's soul's journey and one's ability to live compassionately with all that surrounds us."



Dear Friends:

On December 13, 2009, Ramsey Muñiz will turn 67 years old, and I send this message for those would like to mail him a card. His address is shown below.

You cannot imagine the transformation that Ramsey is still experiencing. The spirits continue to be with him. When his heart is very heavy and tears of sadness prevail, they all appear to him. The loving spirits of our deceased loved ones make their presence known, provide consolation and wisdom.

Ramsey wakes up after the dreams with the realization of what has happened, and he writes everything that he recalls. His writings are the most beautiful words you can imagine and I am convinced that he is having communications with the spirit world.

Remember that we almost lost Ramsey in 2005, and he went through a most profound near death experience. It is said that some people that go through this type of experience are able to communicate with the spirit world.

Among those that he communicates with regularly are his beloved mother, Hilda Longoria Muñiz, and my beloved father, Dr. Salvador Alvarez. Recently he asked my father how we should pray to him, and the words that he wrote were:

"Beloved father
Fill me with your spiritual love
That I might serve you
That I might serve my beloved mother
That I might be a true messenger of your love."

Several weeks later, Ramsey recalled the exact conversation that he was having with my father as he was receiving the prayer above. The prayer was actually more specific to our family.

I share the prayer below so that others can pray the same for their families and deceased loved ones. The revised prayer is:

"Beloved father, Salvador
Fill our family with your spiritual love
That we might serve you
That we might serve our beloved mother, Irma Ramos Alvarez
That I may be a true messenger of your family spiritual love."

I am in awe every time that Ramsey receives this beautiful and divine insight. I invite you to take this information to heart so that we can all experience a spiritual Christmas season with our families.

Shortly you will receive correspondence on the current plans to free Ramsey. We need to free him now! See his mailing address below.

Set up your altars, as the spirits are with us. It is US who are dead.

Oct. 31, 2009

Dear Friends:

Below is a letter about El Dia de los Muertos written by my loving husband, Ramsey Muniz, in 2003. it was written during intense pain and suffering. Out of this suffering came profound thoughts about our culture, spirituality, life, and death. When I ask Ramsey where our deceased loved ones are, he states, "They are here. They are alive and it is us who are dead." I treasure his insight, because one of the spirits that provides comfort and guidance to my husband is my father, the late Dr. Salvador Alvarez. I thank my beloved father for consoling and guiding us now, just as he did during his time on earth.


"I write what I live, and I live what I write."
Ramsey Muniz - Tezcatlipoca

Listen closely, for my destiny is to speak the true history. There is a day that pertains to our religious culture, which connects the earth, heaven, and nature. It is a day when we realize the true essence of cosmic visions, which prove that we are truly a part of Mother Earth, heaven, and the spiritual realm. On this day, the veil that separates the living from the dead is removed, and we are reunited with the loving spirits of our ancestors, forefathers and deceased family members. It is a day of rejoicing, communing, sharing, praying, fasting, and meditating with our ancestors and family members that now reside in "Ilhuicatlitic," the heavens, because once again we share our ancestral spirituality on earth. It is a day that truly brings us together with our past in worship to our gods and rejoicing as one world, one people, and one nation in our minds and hearts for the past, present and future. It is a day so religiously and spiritually powerful, that even five hundred years ago, priests like Sahagun, Torquemada, Molina, Duran, and others realized the power of Teotleco -- the arrival of the gods. They repeatedly witnessed the spiritual ancestral power granted from the past to the present and future raza on El Día De Los Muertos.

"On this day of remembrance, do not judge me by the shackles and chains that confine me in bondage, but by who I am."

"On this day of remembrance, in this mode of darkness confined and isolated from humanity, I am not afraid nor do I fear the coming of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today."

Ramsey Muniz - Tezcatlipoca

Survival Through Love

Oct. 23, 2009

Dear Friends:

The letter of love and gratitude received by my husband, Ramsey Muniz, represents a profound spiritual transformation that he is experiencing. We thank God for this change. I will be with Ramsey this weekend.



As I sit in this 6x9 cell my mind and heart travels back into the past, wondering how it was possible for me to survive three years spent in solitary confinement (dungeons) in the Leavenworth United States Penitentiary. Only the Creator and all of our Mexicano gods and goddesses are able to provide the answer. Be that as it may, I will forever share with the world that it was your love!

"Our harmony and power have not lessened. They have increased, and no external force can overcome the beauty and intensity of our "ome."

Yes, I'm back! Never in my life have I felt so much love. I truly believe in my heart that as my wife God gave you a power of love because of your suffering, pain, grief, sorrow, and sadness with my imprisonment.

Give my tender and profound love to mom always.


"No one will do for us what we fail to do for ourselves."

"One functions spiritually for our ancestors, for ourselves, and for those who come after us."

"While I swam in a sea of knowledge and intelligence, I lived in a world of oppression and despair for the last sixteen years of my life."

"My spiritual face was seen in the colors of the wind
And in the dampness of the earth.
My face is illumination in life and death. I was
The first cry of a new born and the last breath of dying.
My face is the spirituality of Aztlan and the soul,
Mexikayotl, of the universe."

All my world is caged and confined, yet
My spiritual birth soul runs free."

"It is not true, it is not true that we have
Come to live here. We came only to sleep – only to dream.

"The clouds have been dispelled and the darkness
In which I have loved for the last 16 years have fled.
The Sixth Sun has appeared and the light of the day
Shines upon my heart after such darkness that shall never appear again."

Visit in Beaumont, Texas

Sept. 29, 2009

Dear Friends:

My mother and I have just returned from the Beaumont FCI. We have been visiting my husband, Ramsey Muniz, for the last three days. After sixteen years of confinement in prisons away from his family and those close to our hearts, it is now our spiritual obligation, within the political/humanitarian realm, to prove his innocence and free him.

They have kept my husband unjustly incarcerated for many years in order to hide the truth, and the time has come for us to speak about his innocence.

We extend our love and gratitude to all who have made it possible for my husband to be close to his family.
