Judge sets bail for mom of alleged teen assassin

A federal judge in San Diego has set bail at $20,000 for the mother of an alleged child assassin accused of working for drug cartels in Mexico.

A federal judge in San Diego has set bail at $20,000 for the mother of an alleged child assassin accused of working for drug cartels in Mexico.

Yolanda Lugo Jimenez did not enter a plea Friday to a charge of illegally re-entering the U.S. after being deported.

U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested her Monday at her apartment in San Diego's Logan Heights neighborhood.

A public defender says Lugo is self-employed and earns about $300 a month.

The 43-year-old Mexican citizen was deported from San Diego in 1997 after pleading guilty to possessing rock cocaine.

Her 14-year-old son was arrested last week as he tried to board a plane to Tijuana in an airport near Cuernavaca, south of Mexico City. Authorities say he planned to meet his mother in San Diego.
