As a victim of the prison industrial complex, Jesús Arturo Aguirre was sentenced to life in prison at age 16, during a devious trial based on intimidation and the exaggeration of the facts. He was convicted of eight
charges that had to do with a personal dispute between two other people resulting in a minor injury. Nevertheless, for being part of the same social network, Jesús was found to be the only suspect of this quarel.
