Nemesio Ruben Oseguera-Cervantes is the alleged founder and current leader of the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), a major drug trafficking organization (DTO) based in Jalisco, Mexico. CJNG and Oseguera-Cervantes rose to power around 2009 as the leader of the Valencia/Milenio Cartel began to lose power. Oseguera-Cervantes took advantage of this lull in leadership, and joined the Los Cuinis DTO to fight off competition for the control of the Jalisco, Nayarit, and Colima drug distribution networks.
Through extreme violence, corruption, and extortion, CJNG has increased its presence in Mexico, engaging in turf battles throughout the country and steadily expanding their territory and control. Oseguera-Cervantes has allegedly grown CJNG from a regionally based drug trafficking organization into an international organized crime power, involved with the production and distribution of narcotics throughout the world. CJNG allegedly produces multi-hundred kilogram quantities of methamphetamine and heroin, and traffics in multi-ton quantities of cocaine.
Oseguera-Cervantes has been charged in a 2014 District of Columbia federal indictment for violations of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 848, 959, 960, and 963, and Title 18, United States Code, Sections 924.
