Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Monday, Nicasio Cuevas Quiles lll, 44, aka, "Nic Jones, Nic Yoda, Quil de Nic" was sentenced to 12-years in prison for four felony counts of failure to support child convictions. Cuevas Quiles pleaded guilty on all four felony counts on October 10, 2017 in a plea agreement that allowed for three other felony counts for failure to support child be dismissed. He filed a post-conviction relief with the Milwaukee County court.
Cuevas Quiles will be incarcerated for 4-years and will be under supervision for 8-years. He will also have to pay $144,043.93 in child support, according to Milwaukee County Court records. Cuevas Quiles was taken into custody on Monday and booked at the Milwaukee County jail until he is transferred to a Wisconsin Department of Corrections Institution (prison) to begin serving his sentence.
Cuevas Quiles has a misdemeanor and felony charges pending and is scheduled for a court status conference hearing on March 6, to face pre-trial on April 16 for one misdemeanor count for theft of $2,500 and one felony count for issuing worthless checks of $2,500.
Cuevas Quiles established the Latin American Motorcycle Association Nomads (LAMA-Nomads) in Florida and attempted to trademark (TM) the Latin American Motorcycle Association (LAMA) named without authorization after the original LAMA motorcycle group based in Chicago, Illinois created 41 years ago by Mario Nieves failed to renew its trademark name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Cuevas Quiles was a fomer member of LAMA, but left the group and tried to take its name after the original LAMA group rejected Cuevas Quiles proposal to video document the LAMA 40th Anniversary Celebration, according to former associates involved in the video project. He boasted to original LAMA groups in Florida that he owned the trademark, but when Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) investigated, he did not owned the LAMA named as he claimed and his lawyer from Minnesota who filed the trademark application removed himself for lack of contact with Cuevas Quiles and the trademark filing was placed on hold and no action taken. Since the trademark incident, the original LAMA group in Chicago refiled for the trademark. 
HNNUSA has attempted multiple times to contact Marcos Rodriguez, the President and David Soto, the Vice-President of LAMA National from Chicago, but no response has been received concerning the association's name infringement by Cuevas Quiles and his LAMA-Nomads members.
In brief: Cuevas Quiles TM registered Latin American Motorcycle Association L.A.M.A. on June 20, 2017 and then the name was TM registered by LAMA Corporation from Chicago on August 9, 2017. The TM for LAMA Corp. had expired on August 9, 2013, then LAMA was reactivated in July 28, 2015 and expired on March 13, 2017. Cuevas Quiles didn't include Nomads in the TM filing, according to the USPTO.
The USPTO has posted on TSDR check that on December 12, 2017, Attorney Eduardo E. Drake from Fantastic IP Consulting, LLC, Minneapolis, Minnesota who was representing Cuevas Quiles in the TM filing had withdrawn from the filing due to lack of communication with client (U.S. Serial # 87498322) for request to Trademark "Latin American Motorcycle Association LAMA". Quiles filing on June 20, 2017 is still active, but remains under examination with a "non-final Office action" by USPTO.
Which actually means that Cuevas Quiles doesn't have the exclusive for the LAMA Trademark yet, which he has implied to have, according to the USPTO records filing.
Cuevas Quiles hasn't TM registered the LAMA-Nomads in the State of Florida yet, according to Corporation state records.
HNNUSA noticed that Cuevas Quiles has disabled his Quil de Nic Facebook account, but the  Latin America Motorcycle Association Nomads Facebook page and the LAMA-Nomads internet dot com remained active.
On August 8, 2016, a Milwaukee County court judgement of $340,838.00 was granted for Urban Skyline Investment Company LLC against Riverwest Holdings LLC, which Cuevas Quiles operated.
In September of 2015, a Milwaukee County court judgement of $25,668.25 was granted to ATID Investment LLP against Cuevas Quiles lll and Mind Mill Creative LLC, according to Milwaukee County Court records.
In July 2015, a Milwaukee County court judgement of $11,192.03 was granted for the City of Milwaukee against Cuevas Quiles.
Other judgements in Milwaukee County showed that in at least 18 cases resulted in a combined total of $39,898.47 against Cuevas Quiles, according to court records.
On September 12, 2016, Cuevas Quiles filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
