Amy Fernandez sentenced to 12 months in prison

February 29, 2012

Amy Fernandez will be facing time in prison.
In U.S. Federal Court on Wednesday afternoon, she received a sentence of 12 months in prison with three years of supervised release to follow. The sentence was issued by Judge Mary Lou Robinson.
On Monday, Nov. 21, 2011, she pleaded guilty for one account of evading the reporting requirements and the regulations issued thereunder, structure, attempt to structure, and attempted to assist in structuring currency transactions with one or more domestic financial institutions. She was accused of purchasing 39 cashier's checks with United States currency in amounts of $3,000 or less pertaining to the structuring.
Fernandez issued a statement to the court, saying that she was a mother of two sons and an upstanding citizen.
“I feel that I am no harm or threat to the community,” she said.
She will have to undergo an assessment once released and must report to a probation office within 72 hours of being released. She will not be allowed to open any lines of credit or have credit card accounts while on probation.
Her lawyer said the court should consider that Fernandez has no prior criminal history and has never been in a court of law before. She and lawyer both said they feel she has been economically punished. It was also stated that she has been cooperative in making the forfeiture payments that have been issued to her up to this point.
In February, the court announced that Fernandez would be required to pay $99,950 to the government after her sentencing.
Fernandez, along with Francisco “Frank” Fernandez, Aaron Fernandez, Jose Luis Fernandez, Jr., and Thomas Salazar, were taken into custody on October 27, 2011 and were incarcerated in the Randall County Jail. The other four have pleaded guilty to drug offenses. Jose Fernandez was charged with prohibition of illegal gambling business. Francisco Fernandez was also charged with one count of conspiracy to commit a drug offense. All four are still awaiting sentencing.

Being punished, really?

So poor Amy Lynn feels like she is being punished, well that is kinda' the point when you break the law. Nice that she maintained her arrogant attitude all the way to court. Also, based on a recent study, Amy Lynn isn't the only one out there who is the mother of two children, that doesn't really make you so special.

I think I may go get a couple of new credit cards now, maybe open a few new lines of credit and pay my debts with honest money. Sometimes, life is good like that. On an up note, I hear you can get tatoos really cheap in prison.

Ok as soon as you finish the drugs you got from them them maybe you will restate your comment. If you have not seen on all the post. Amy is a selfish,ugly, nasty, person who only cares for her self. She doesnt care about the people of borger nor does her family. If she did care she would have not washed her husband dirty money.

So you were one of those people who idealized their way of life, and now your a little hurt that they burst your bubble and were arrested. Move on your a follower and not a leader. You probably need to find a more positive group of role models. From what I read in your post you need to get your own life. Bottom Line- The Fernandez's were low life trash drug dealers that poisioned our community for approximately 10 years. They started in cocaine and weed, and then graduated to methamphetamine. They are responisble for destroying more lives than they helped.

I agree with both of the former comments. I don't understand why Amy is complaining on fb about making the news!! Hello??... this is news! If you didn't want to make the news, you shouldn't have been involved in what you were involved in. Yes, Frank and Amy did contribute alot to the sports programs at school. But, I would think that they did alot more bad than good in the community with the drugs that were sold to our children. Mom saying that you all just fell in with the wrong crowd?? You are grown people, kids fall in with the wrong crowd, adults should know better. If all of you are innocent why did you plead guilty? And YES, and I bet people do pay cash...FOR DRUGS!! Tired of the pity party. Just pay your debt to society with dignity and shut up.

Ok! so two of our upstanding lady's of Borger have been sentenced Amy 12 months and Shannon 10 months..... well at least they can keep each other company. But really only 12 months for Amy, that is such BS. Really just slap her hand and say NO..No you were naughty. Well she should be able to pay the money in a month when her kids go get it from the property they don't have in there name from all the drug sales. Heck maybe her kids will do it in money orders for $2,499.oo each so they don't get caught like there mother. So every true upstanding female in town ..HURRY quiet your job. get a good printer and print up some money and then take to 7 diff banks buy money orders and send then but just remember. Don't get them bigger than $2,500 at a time and you will never have to worry again ... and if you do get caught say you have kids and they will just give you a vacation for a year..

Poor Amy, NOT. She got only a part of what she deserves. The good people of Borger aren't buying her "upstanding citizen" claim. She is nothing more than another lowly drug dealer we don't want here. I really hope she is economically ruined. There is no telling how many lives have actually been ruined by the Fernandez family. I only wish the sentence had been 12 years instead of 12 months.

So she thinks she has been "economically punished". Poor baby. I am disappointed in the judge for not giving her something more substantial. Yes, she is a mother of two-one of which she had doing some of her crooked business dealings. What kind of mother does that? Upstanding citizen??? No thanks, Borger doesn't need that kind of citizenry.

What A JOKE. That is a statement.I might as well quite my job and launder money than put up with my day to day job. Her family is nice to your face and when you turn around they sell drugs to your kids. That is a upstanding citizen. What a court system. Where is Waytt Earp when you need him?
