The 2011 Brewers season saw Milwaukee win the NL Central division for the first time and make a run to the NLCS. They did so behind contributions from a number of players. Now one of those players is going to be behind bars for the next 40 to 60 years.
Sergio Mitre was a key member of the Brewers bullpen early that season, posting a 3.27 ERA in 22 games covering 33 innings. The Brewers acquired him from the Yankees that March for Chris Dickerson. In July, the Yankees purchased him back. Remember that guy?
Well it turns out, Sergio Mitre is a massive piece of human excrement and a horrible human being.
Former Brewers reliever Sergio Mitre has just been sentenced to 40-60 years in prison in Mexico. *WARNING: NSFW, Graphic content*
You might be asking yourself, why so many years? 40-60 years in prison seems like a lot. Well, there’s a reason for it.
Mitre was found guilty in Mexico on charges of Femicide, which is the killing of a woman or girl on account of her gender. According to the reports out of Mexico, Mitre brutally raped and murdered the 22 month old daughter of his live-in girlfriend. Her name was Ines. An innocent little girl, not even two years old.
She suffered a ruptured renal artery, had continued vomiting, and went into shock from Mitre’s attack. The ruptured artery and ensuing shock led to her death.
All of a sudden 40-60 years in prison doesn’t seem like quite enough of a punishment for Mitre.
Mitre was arrested back in July 2020 on these charges and has been found guilty and has finally been sentenced. He’ll be 80 years old when he’s first eligible to be released.
He’s going to have a long time to reflect on his disgusting and horrifying actions and crimes.
There’s a lot of things I, and many others, want to say about Mitre given this news, but few words that can be published here. Mitre is a massive piece of garbage and he deserves far more than just 40-60 years in a Mexican jail.
If, for whatever reason, you actually have a Brewers Sergio Mitre jersey, or a jersey of him from any team he was on, it might be best to just burn it or throw it out or something like that. The only good news in all this is that Mitre was caught and brought to some semblance of justice for his horrendous crimes.
