the Andrade-Trevi conspiracy

Gloria Trevi was previously charged with kidnapping and corruption of minors.

In 1999, the Chihuahua Attorney General’s Office in Mexico issued arrest warrants against Gloria Trevi, Sergio Andrade and Marie Boquitas.

All three were arrested in Brazil on 13 January 2000.

Trevi served part of his sentence between Brazil and Mexico. The singer spent 4 years, 8 months and 8 days behind bars. He was acquitted in 2004 by a Chihuahua judge.

In a 2004 interview with CNN, Trevi said that being imprisoned was “humanly an injustice and that at least in the end, thank God, in Mexico there was an acknowledgment of wrong through the laws that were made.” “

“During those years they robbed me but I didn’t let myself be robbed of the most important thing, which was to be able to make a song, to be able to dream, to be able to travel with my imagination.”

In interviews, weeks after her release and as part of promotion for her album “How the Universe Is Born”, Trevi confirmed that the stories that landed her in prison had been manipulated.

The singer said, “I want this to be very clear, I never hurt anyone and the stories that were told were very manipulative, very exaggerated and full of lies.”

In 2018, during the televised ceremony of the Latin American Music Awards, Trevi talked about this stage in his life.

“It took four years, eight months and eight days for Mexican justice to recognize my innocence and that I was a smoke screen for the dead in Juárez. Because in this way, sometimes, by condemning a woman, they hide crimes against others,” the singer said.

“My abuser is free today and has not only hurt me but many other young women. And most likely still is. They say a lie becomes a truth after repeating it, but no.. .I was not his partner, I was 15 years old with a 12 year old mindset, when I met the great producer who immediately tried to become a mirage of love and presented me as the only opportunity to achieve my dreams ”, Trevi said about the meeting with Sergio Andrade.

“I was 15 years old when I started living with molestation, beatings, yelling, abuse, punishment and humiliation for 17 years,” said the singer.

Andrade, who pleaded not guilty to the charges in 2005, was convicted and given a sentence of 7 years and 10 months. The producer was acquitted in 2007 of charges of kidnapping, aggravated rape and corruption of minors by a judge in Chihuahua, Mexico.
