Senior U.S. District Judge David Briones on Aug. 11 threw out the lawsuit against the U.S. government over the June 7, 2010, shooting of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande.

The El Paso Times reported Thursday that Judge Briones dismissed the case because the boy was not shot on U.S. soil.

Family attorney Bob Hilliard told the Associated Press that he’ll appeal.

A lawyer for agent Jesus Mesa Jr. didn’t immediately return a message asking for comment. U.S. investigators have said the agent was trying to arrest illegal immigrants when he was targeted by rock throwers.

Police: Dozens of teens involved in sexting ring

MILTON | Police in Vermont said nearly two dozen teenagers used school computers and a special email account to access indecent photos and videos taken by female classmates.

Authorities said Thursday that 22 students have admitted to using the school computers in February to view 30 to 40 images and three videos, many of which were sent by cellphone. The Milton Independent first reported the story Wednesday.

Milton Police detective Cpl. Paul Locke said girls took photos of themselves and sent them to boys, who forwarded them to the email account. He said 17 girls aged 14 to 17 were identified in the photos, many of which qualify as child pornography.

The students will not face charges but must attend mandatory sessions with a community board.

School officials have not returned a message seeking comment.
