The family of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry have filed a lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), claiming the failure of officials within the agency to properly oversee the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation led to the agent's death. The lawsuit seeks $25 million in compensation.
The man who bought two semi-automatic assault rifles found at the scene of the fatal 2010 shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Phoenix to 57 months in prison over his role in the botched Fast and Furious gun-running investigation.
The man who purchased two semi-automatic assault rifles found at the scene of the fatal December 2010 shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent just north of the Arizona-Mexico border pleaded guilty Thursday to two felony charges in the federal government's botched Fast and Furious gun-smuggling investigation.
He and Avila, the indictment says, shopped together at the Lone Wolf Trading Co.
"I'm sorry about the Terry family — what happened — and that if I had the power to change everything, I would," Avila told U.S. District Judge James Teilborg during his sentencing hearing. "I am just trying to change my life — just trying — to be a good father to my son, that that's it, your honor."
