Texas Trucker Released From Mexican Prison
The American truck driver who entered Juarez with a truckload of ammunition has been released.
Bogan, 27, has been in a maximum security prison in Veracruz since he crossed from West Texas into Juarez, Mexico, on April 17.
Bogan said he was supposed to drive to Phoenix to deliver assault rifle ammunition to a wholesaler there when he got lost. He said he took a wrong exit in the freeway and drove toward the border.
Agents testified in June that Bogan was trying to make a U-turn back into the U.S. when they found the ammunition bundled on top of wooden pallets inside the trailer.
Bogan was sentenced for possession of ammunition in September.
Today he was finally released after paying a 1,500 dollar fine.
