Albert Portusach Mendiola, Jr. lands back in jail

Posted: May 11, 2018 5:18 PM Updated:

Federal drug defendant Albert Portusach Mendiola, Jr. should have been on the road to recovery. Instead, he's back in jail.

Earlier this year, the court ordered his release so he could participate in residential substance abuse treatment at Lighthouse Recovery Center.

Days later, however, the LRC reported him to probation officers - that three of their residents had received the drug "ICE" from Mendiola at the treatment facility.

That prompted his discharge, and eventually a warrant for his arrest.

Though Mendiola appeared in court on Friday, defense requested he return next week to answer to the third and fourth declaration for revocation.
