Former Border Patrol Agent Sentenced to More than Four Years for Gun Smuggling
A former Border Patrol agent was sentenced in El Paso, Tex. to 51 months in prison for his role in buying guns to be smuggled into Mexico, the Associated Press reports.
The sentence was part of a plea deal in which Ricardo Montalvo agreed to plead guilty to recruiting others as straw buyers of guns in exchange for having 19 counts dropped, the AP reported.
The 29-year-old former agent was accused of buying nine weapons, more than 20,000 rounds of ammunition and high-capacity magazines for assault rifles.
