The defense of the “top hat” also denied that there is a plea bargaining agreement with the North American justice, as it was reported in the last edition of the magazine Veja. According to Asseff, Teixeira did not even have contact with the prosecutors of the United States.
It does not mean, however, that it can not occur in the future. "The is no plea bargaining settled. Ricardo Teixeira wants to defend himself in the United States Justice. There is a precedent that he can do it in Brazil," explained lawyer Michel Asseff Filho.
