Less than 4% of Baja California homicides in 2012 resulted in convictions

Few homicides resulted in arrests or convictions, Mexico as a whole convicted less than 2% of cases in 2012

According to Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía or INEGI), less than 4% of homicides that were reported in Baja California during 2012 resulted in convictions. Nationwide statistics were recently released, showing few convictions in most states.

According to the federal government, Baja California had 590 homicides in 2012. This number is lower than the state attorney’s figure of 643 homicides during the year. Both numbers reflect a steady drop in homicides since 2008, when 1,076 cases were reported by the state.

Of the 590 homicides reported federally, 117 arrests took place and 23 convictions. Baja California ranked 16 in number of homicides, out of 31 states and the Federal District.

As a nation, 27,700 homicides were officially recorded. Of that count, 462 resulted in convictions, equaling a 1.4% conviction rate.

Baja California Sur reported 35 homicides in 2012, making it the state with the lowest number. Arrests occurred on all cases, but only 8.5% resulted in convictions.

Animal Politico reported on the national statistics in Spanish, on Wednesday, July 17, which includes interactive graphics.

Other states, such as Hidalgo and Tlaxcala, made zero convictions in their 83 and 59 recorded homicides. The Federal District led the way by convicting 15.4% of the 779 homicides it recorded.
