A former Border Patrol agent, who showed drug traffickers how to smuggle 20 kilos of cocaine through Zapata County, Tex.,  was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison.

Authorities say Leon Morales, 30, of Zapata County, showed traffickers how to avoid sensors and drew a map of the best routes to smuggle the drugs.

Federal authorities said he also bragged that he could get other Border Patrol agents out of the area.
