Esteban Loaiza Sentenced in Drug Case

Former MLB All-Star pitcher Esteban Loaiza was sentenced to three years in prison Friday for felony drug possession after more than 40 pounds of cocaine were found in his rented townhome in Imperial Beach, California. 

Loaiza pleaded guilty to one felony count of possession of cocaine with intent of distribution in August 2018 in San Diego County.

His sentence of three years in prison and five years on probation was far less than the minimum prison sentence of 10 years he faced.

According to U.S. District Court Judge Janis L. Sammartino, after serving his pricing sentence, Loaiza will be deported to his home country of Mexico.

Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Loaiza attended Mar Vista High School in Imperial Beach. After his 1995 debut in the major leagues, he went on to pitch for the Pirates, Yankees, Oakland A’s, Dodgers, White Sox and others.

Louisa was also the husband of Jenni Rivera but filed for divorce from Loaiza two months before the 2012 plane crash that killed Jenni Rivera.
