David Britto's Mother Faces Life in Prison for Allegedly Helping Her Son Escape to Brazil

David Britto, federal fugitive, has been in Brazil for three weeks and change.
Janiber "Jane" Andrade Vieira -- mother of Boynton Beach cop/alleged meth trafficker/federal fugitive David Britto -- was indicted by a grand jury on charges that she helped her son escape to Brazil, according to documents filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Contempt of court -- one of the three charges Vieira faces -- carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Britto took a flight from Miami to Brasilia, Brazil, on August 24, with a one-way ticket purchased by Vieria the day before at a Pompano Beach travel agency, the documents say.

Not only did Vieira buy the plane ticket in Britto's name, the feds also allege she told Drug Enforcement Administration the next day that she did not help and assist Britto in obtaining or purchasing the plane ticket to Brazil.

Britto, as you may remember, also faces life in prison after being arrested in July for conspiring to possess more than 500 grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

According to Vieira's arrest warrant, filed on September 2, a DEA agent states that Britto's ankle monitor had signaled a "tamper alert" after he cut it off on August 24 -- the same day Britto boarded that flight to Brazil -- but the U.S. Probation Office did not notify the DEA until the next day.

The agent writes that the DEA was notified by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement "later that afternoon" of August 25 that Britto was scheduled to board a one-way flight from Miami to Brasilia, Brazil, on a TAM Airlines flight.

That day, DEA agents went to the travel agency in Pompano Beach -- Chang Express Travel -- where they found that Vieira had paid cash for Britto's ticket, which was verified from audio/video security footage.

On September 2, federal agents managed to capture Vieira trying to leave the country from JFK International Airport in New York to San Paulo, Brazil.

Vieira was extradited from New York to South Florida on Thursday and will face charges of contempt of court -- which carries the aforementioned maximum sentence of life in prison -- as well as conspiracy to fail to appear before the court and making a false statement, which both carry maximum sentences of five years in prison.

Lets see what kind of "man" old jar head is.

 Will he let his mommy rot in jail for his serious fuck up or will he come to her rescue?

 My bet is that he is a pussy and will stay in Brazil.

 Stay tuned!


How about exposing the "Pompano travel agency" and charging them with aiding and abetting, since they sold a "one way ticket" to a fleeing fugitive. My guess it is one of those  Brazilian flag waving agencies. RICO their ass.


Alas, two more dummies we're going to have to feed and house for years and years.  Deport them and be done with it.
