MORMON MOM'S MALDONADO'S MEXICO FRAME-UP
Her daughter Anna Soto told FOX 10: "If you would've known my mom, if you would've met her — you would know she had nothing to do with it."
Soto added that when she spoke with her mother: "She started crying and...she's like, 'I have faith that people will help us, that we will get out of this together as a family'."
The distraught daughter added that a Mexican lawyer hinted a bribe to cops might be in order. Guy Maldonado raised $5,000 but it was refused.
The couple were returning from a funeral in Mexico when their bus was stopped. After the Federales
discovered the pot, Yanira was arrested.
A relative said Yanira "had a rough night. Their interrogation included putting her in a non-air-conditioned room and waking her up several times in the middle of night — trying to get her to sign documents that she said she couldn't read."
