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.

 

Blago Says He Never Considered a Plea Deal; Appears a Little Nervous About Retrial

Ex-Gov on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice

With just days to go before his retrial, ex-Ill. Gov Rod Blagojevich is still speaking his mind. No surprise.

The chatty ex-Gov. told the Associated Press Saturday he never considered a plea deal with federal prosecutors. The retrial is set to begin Wednesday in U.S. District Court in downtown Chicago.

“There will never ever, ever, ever be me admitting to things that are false and not true,” he said. “I acted honestly, with my heart in the right place, with honest intention.”

Blago was convicted the first time of 1 of 24 counts — for lying to the FBI.

Still, with all his talk, he appeared a little nervous.

“I hate to admit it,” he told the AP. “But the truth is there is always an element of fear that if things don’t go as they should, the consequences are not something to look forward to.”
