Ex-Yankees pitcher Sergio Mitre sentenced to prison for 2020 murder of toddler in Mexico

Former Yankees pitcher Sergio Mitre is going to be behind bars for a long time after he was convicted of murdering his ex-partner’s daughter.

Mitre was convicted of femicide after raping and murdering the 22-month-old girl named Ines after his July 2020 arrest and trial.

The heinous hurler was sentenced Wednesday night to between 40-to-60 years in prison.

Mitre, 41, pitched for four different teams in the majors between 2003 and 2011: the Chicago Cubs, Florida Marlins, New York Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers.

He won the 2009 World Series as a member of the Yankees.

This is really disturbing. Also, I appreciate good alliteration as much as the next fellow, but I feel like "heinous hurler" is out of place in a piece about the rape and murder of a toddler.

I was at his major league debut for the Cubs in Atlanta. His family was sitting a few rows behind me and I figured out who they were and talked to them for a while during batting practice. They were so excited and I was so excited for him and them. Then he gave up eight runs and got chased in the 4th, and things apparently went downhill from there. Bizzare to hold that day and this story in my mind at once.

Concur.

Also a little surprised his sentence in anything short of die in prison. I can't think of a worse crime.

If it's anything like the U.S., he'll definitely die in prison.

He's 40, and just got sentenced to 40 to 60 years in prison. Even if it's not stated as such, his sentence is effectively one where he'll die in prison.

Aren't prisoners usually eligible for parole before the stated minimum?

Here, for sure. Not sure how the Mexican criminal justice system works, other than poorly.

From a document about criminal prosecutions in Mexico written by the then Texas AG Greg Abbott;

Taking parole into account

Time actually served in Mexico differs significantly from time actually served in Texas. Parole does not exist under Mexican law; therefore, Mexican officials rarely commute or lessen sentences. Once sentenced in Mexico, a criminal may not have his or her term diminished for good behavior, as is typically the case in Texas.

Mexico also fines based on ability to pay. When one of the wealthiest men in Mexico killed Kirsty MacColl by hitting her with a speedboat he claimed one of his employees was driving and the person was able to avoid jail time by paying about $2,000 US to her family.
