AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The brother of a Texas horse trainer charged with laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel said he's being falsely accused.
Eusevio Huitron of Austin was arrested Tuesday as part of a federal indictment into alleged quarter-horse racing operations with links to the notorious Zetas drug cartel.
The indictment alleges Huitron trained horses for the cartel and used a real estate business to launder drug profits.
But his older brother, Jesus, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Huitron has been a horse trainer since 1994 and has nothing to do with "drugs, or cartels, or any of this foolishness."
He said he's hiring an attorney for his brother, who will be back in court Friday.
