Lorenzo Lopez, brother of Mazz co-founder Joe Lopez, posted an update to friends and fans of the Tejano star via Facebook on Monday.

“Hello friends and fans of Joe Lopez Mazz,” he posted. “I got back from visiting with my brother Joe last night…we had a beautiful visit. He had just gotten back from Huntsville, they transferred him there because of the floods. I told him about Thursday night’s benefit dance where so many Tejano artist got together in his support.”

The benefit dance was held at Far West San Antonio on Thursday night and included appearances and performances from Tejano stars that are close friends and supporters of Joe Lopez. The money raised will go to help exonerate the singer, who was convicted in 2006 on multiple sex offense charges involving a minor. He was sentenced to 32 years in prison, but because he will serve the sentences concurrently, they amount to 20 years in prison.

“He broke down and got emotional when I told him the story of the man, who told me his testimony about being locked up for 22 years before being exonerated with the same charges Joe Lopez has today,” Lorenzo Lopez continued on Facebook.

The singer plans to show his appreciation for the benefit with a personal letter.

Joe also told me he is going to write a thank you letter to Rudy Lopez from Far West asking if Rudy will read it to his fans at the club and TV station,” Lorenzo Lopez posted.

Joe Lopez’s full prison term would end on October 27, 2026. He is eligible for parole on October 26, 2016.

  4. We love you Joe. I know I have judge other people and it’s not right. It’s like my parents say “If we weren’t there when it happened. Why judge.. Only God,you and the other person knows what happen.” I have made mistakes in my life. But why are people judging me when they don’t know what happen behind closed doors. All we can do is prayer for each other. God Bless You and Your Family.
