Hey, one more item off the bucket list:
Convicted of running a violent Miami marijuana smuggling ring, Gilberto Santiesteban Jr. decided to put his troubles behind him – literally.Is there any greater honor?
He had the details of his criminal case tattooed across his back.
It’s a virtual sentencing order in body ink, listing his prison term, the names of federal prosecutors, his defense attorney, even the investigators who arrested him: FBI agent Michael Gualtieri and Miami-Dade homicide Detective Rich Raphael.
“It was really creepy, to be honest,” said Miami defense lawyer Luis I. Guerra, whose name appears on Santiesteban’s back.
A photo of the tattoo, obtained by The Miami Herald, shows a stylized map of Florida — encased behind prison bars and a lock-and-key — backed by a Cuban flag.
The tattoo even boasts the name of the judge, K. Michael Moore, plus Santiesteban’s maximum punishment – the death penalty – and his actual sentence: 30 years in the federal pen.
But that still leaves skydiving, having a beer named after you, an around-the-world cruise.....
