Lavalas U.S. Implicated in Oriel Jean Death
Following Aristide's ouster, the Canadian Embassy promised Jean refuge, but reneged on its word, canceling his visa and arresting him. Jean requested the judge at his hearing to return him to Haiti. But before the judge could act on the request Washington sent an extradition request.
U.S. prosecutors indicted him for drug-trafficking, a charge Jean vociferously denied. His attorney advised him to make a deal. Jean acknowledged he knew three Haiti drug lords, whom he had received gifts from. He pled guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering, giving testimony against drug trafficker Serge Edouard.
