Plea Deal For ‘Fast And Furious’ Killer Of U.S. Border Patrol Agent

posted on August 12, 2015

The Obama Justice Department made a plea-bargain deal Monday with Rosario Rafael Burboa-Alvarez, one of seven men charged in the 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry—whose murder was linked to firearms smuggled to the Mexican drug cartels through the Obama administration’s “Fast and Furious” scheme—that will allow the alleged killer to avoid the death penalty while allowing the administration to avoid a potentially embarrassing trial, or worse.

Under the deal, Burboa-Alvarez agreed to one count of murder, along with a 30-year prison sentence—the same plea deal given to co-defendant Manuel Osorio-Arellanes—in exchange for the government dropping all other charges, including that he killed Terry with “malice aforethought” and interfered with federal investigators.

Through “Fast and Furious,” thousands of guns were smuggled from the U.S. into Mexico that have since been linked to hundreds of murders in both countries.
