Director is Billy Corben, Netflix’s ‘Cocaine Cowboys “The Kings of Miami” is a six-part documentary series that explores the lives of two childhood pals who progressed from high school dropouts to some of the most prominent narco gang leaders within South Florida within a few years. 

According to officials, “The Boys” or “Los Muchachos,” Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta along with their long-entrusted team, managed to sneak more than 75 tonnes of cocaine to make more than $2 billion in the space of two decades. 

One of the crew members included Justo Jay. Here’s what we know about him.

Who is Justo Jay?

Justo Enrique Jay was an essential component in Willy and Sal’s organization for cocaine right from the beginning, as he was not just an intimate friend, but also accountable enough to take charge of the cargo that was brought in. 

Everything that the kingpins required to oversee the operations of their storage houses or to ensure the efficient flow of cash as well as goods, Justo presented it. 

Just like the two of them, he had emigrated from Cuba as a young man in the mid-1950s and was raised in poverty within Little Havana. So, to achieve the best quality of life and to earn funds, they initially didn’t mind taking the easy route by trafficking drugs.

Justo was so essential in his role that Willy and Sal needed to relocate the man into North Carolina to manage their trade however, it was only a matter of time before his capture in 1988. 

Two days later, on February 2nd Justo was charged with one continuous criminal enterprise (CCE) charge by the Western District of NC, that, on the 9th of March the following day, was followed by a single count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and 14 other counts of possession with intent to distribute and deal with cocaine.

After a jury trial, Justo Enrique Jay was convicted of all charges and was given an indefinite sentence without parole for the CCE charge and a total of 115 years in the other charges, which will be completed simultaneously. 

The appeal was filed as quickly as he could, but his appeal was denied by the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit only overturned his conviction for conspiracy. 

So, even though he was sentenced to life, following 19 years in prison, Justo was released from federal custody in the year 2007. 

Just a month later, the son of his, Jon Jay, made his debut in the minor leagues of baseball. So, Justo was released just in time to watch his son turn professional. 

Since then, however, Justo has preferred to keep his distance from the spotlight. That is there isn’t much information about his professional or personal experiences are publicly available.
