However, the Mexican prosecutors laid claim to them, due to the fact that all the alleged crimes had begun in Mexico.
In April 2000, a Brazilian federal court ruled that the evidence against Trevi, Andrade, and Boquitas needed extensive investigation before they even considered Mexico's extradition request. The three were moved to another Brazilian prison,
due to overcrowding in the facility where they were being held. It was there that Trevi became pregnant and she accused a prison guard of raping her. Under Brazilian law, pregnant women prisoners were allocated separate housing, where they could live with their children. Trevi was moved to such a facility, but before long before she was sent back to prison, due to pressure from Mexican authorities.
Trevi gave birth to a son, Angel Gabriel, on February 18, 2002, in Brasilia, Brazil. The following day, authorities denied her request to keep the father's identity a secret. Following DNA tests, Andrade was confirmed as the child's father. While Trevi and Andrade had been denied conjugal visits, it is believed that they bribed a prison guard to arrange for time alone together to have sex.
Trevi wrote an autobiography while in prison in 2002, Gloria by Gloria Trevi. In it she portrays herself as an entirely innocent victim, and the other clan girls as greedy liars. She says she went along with over 15 years of abuse because of Andrade's powerful and unrelenting hold over her.
The Brazilian and Mexican authorities finally came to an agreement and on December 21, 2002, after nearly three years in prison, Trevi and Boquitas were extradited to Mexico to face charges. They were sent to the Aquilas Serdan prison near Chihuahua and Trevi's baby son was sent to live with his maternal grandmother.
It was alleged that while on the run, Trevi had given birth to her and Andrade's baby, a daughter, whom they had left to die, and authorities were investigating the possibility of also charging the couple with homicide. However, with no evidence and no body ever found, the homicide charges were dropped.
In late 2002 and early 2003, Trevi awaited trial but to no avail. As time went by, it became apparent that the Mexican authorities were having trouble finding concrete evidence of the alleged crimes. Andrade was then also extradited to Mexico and sent to the same prison as Trevi in November 2003. The couple were not allowed any contact.
New York Times magazine writer Christopher McDougall, published Girl Trouble: The True Saga of Superstar Gloria Trevi and the Secret Teenage Sex Cult that Stunned the World in 2004. The book was viewed by some as the most authoritative account of what actually happened. McDougall had personally interviewed both Trevi and Andrade while they were in prison, as well as many of the young girls involved, getting details of what happened while the group were fugitives.
Trevi was led to believe that she would be released from prison on 24 February 2004 but the Mexican authorities denied her her freedom.
