Contrary to what a television show program reported on Tuesday, Alberto Aguilera Jr., eldest son of Juan Gabriel, continues to be a fugitive from justice in El Paso, Texas, where he has been wanted for seven years.
“Alberto Aguilera has been a fugitive since 2015, when he attacked an officer. If he is arrested, the judges have already determined that he will not be entitled to bail, ”said Chris Acosta, spokeswoman for the El Paso County Sheriff.
The hosts of the “Gossip No Like” program pointed out that they had evidence of the alleged arrest of the son of “Divo de Juárez” in El Paso, without showing any convincing evidence, only his word.
The El Paso Journal checked the records of the County Jail, without locating any that corresponded to Aguilera.
In the same way, the fugitive file is intact in the El Paso Crime Stoppers database, where the most wanted of the Police and Sheriff appear.
In his Crime Stoppers file, it is stated that the fugitive is 51 years old, measures 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 meters), weighs 150 pounds (68 kilograms), with short brown hair and eyes of the same color.
Aguilera Jr. was accused in 2012 of attacking a public servant, whom he spat on after being fined for illegally crossing a street, an offense known in English as jaywalking.
Court records show Aguilera pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to five years probation, plus 200 hours of community service and a $500 fine.
According to the documents, Aguilera was found drinking at a bar in March 2015, which was a violation of the terms of his probation. As a consequence, his sentence of freedom was extended in July 2016 for five more years, to end on June 19, 2022.
After committing this violation, Alberto Aguilera Jr. fled from the authorities, for which he is considered a fugitive from justice. In December 2017 he was added to Crime Stoppers’ Most Wanted list, where he subsequently reappeared in 2020.
Alberto Aguilera Valadez, artistically known as Juan Gabriel, passed away on August 28, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.
Without inheritance and with problems
After the death of the interpreter of “Querida”, it was revealed that his eldest son had been left out of the will, and named Iván Aguilera, another of his descendants, as his universal heir.
“Mr. Aguilera talked with his children, talked with Iván and decided to designate him as universal heir, specifying what was the will he wanted to be fulfilled,” said the artist’s lawyer, Guillermo Pous.
In August 2017, Juan Gabriel’s adoptive son attempted to violently take possession of his father’s house on Avenida 16 de Septiembre and Colombia, in Ciudad Juárez.
After being rejected in that failed attempt, Aguilera Jr. took possession of the mansion on Lerdo Street, the first that Juan Gabriel acquired in Juárez, which was in the name of Silvia Urquidi – former representative of the singer-songwriter. Later, the adopted son had problems with Urquidi. In 2018, the fugitive was admitted to an addiction rehabilitation center.
Although the details of how he was adopted by Juan Gabriel are unknown, the relationship between the two fractured in 2012, when Héctor Alberto Aguilera Holguín, son of Alberto Jr., died.
Hector Alberto, 23, died of an overdose after ingesting drugs while he was being held in the El Paso County Jail. There he was found unconscious and transferred to Sierra Providence Hospital, where he lost his life.
Juan Gabriel lamented the death of his grandson, and from then on he moved away from Alberto Jr., a situation that prevailed until the death of “Divo de Juárez” four years later.
