Here is who you can blame for your boat insurance being so high in FL:

1. The owners of Netcycle Trading in Doral, FL (Miami) Nadia Esperanza Ledesma and her husband Carlos Orlando Ledesma.
2. Roberto Marrero-Cisneros who supplied fake serial numbers
3. Osmani Valdivia Perez of Leigh Acres, FL (Lee County) who financed it all.
4. Osmani's nephew Tomas Vale Valdivia in Mexico and also helped finance it and was previously arrested for smuggling migrants.

They were responsible for stealing and shipping about 600 outboard motors from Florida to Mexico between 2015-2018.

"The defendants face up to five years in prison at their sentencings in May before U.S. District Judge Robert Scola, and must pay forfeiture penalties totaling between $50,000 and $120,000 each to the U.S. government."

The punishment... "up to 5 years and a fine between $50K and $120K" for stealing and exporting motors valued between $9.5M and $25M.

Are you surprised? Our criminal justice system is whack.
The scary part of our current circumstances,
is that they are most likely much worse than reported by both the government and fake news
and since NOTHING is getting better under the current so called leadership it's going to get worse.
Just think how the rest of the country is fairing when this stuff is happening in one of the "best" run states in our country.
Pretty sure the $hit show is just getting started.
