Spanish term or phrase: estar jurado
Again with my Mexican letter.

This definitely does NOT refer to being sworn in or anything like that. I'm not even sure if it's the word.

Por otro lado le informo que XX no toma. Por el momento *está jurado*.

I originally thought this was 'jumado', as in DRUNK, but it makes no sense to say "I'm letting you know XX is not drinking. For the time being he is drunk"

Es 'estar jurado' algun "mexicanismo"?

Thanks to all for your suggestions, but as my comment said, it does not refer to jurors, being under oath or anything of the like. I think it maybe is another word entirely and since I can't read the handwriting properly, I have decided to translate the word as "illegible". However, since I had to award points to somebody, it goes to the first answer. Thank you!

To be pledged


Explanation:
It is a slang that is used when somebody want to stop drink alcohol. And the pledge is made to a saint or to the "virgen of guadalupe". There are also a kind of bulla that you can buy if there is any party or celebration "very important"
