EL PASO- The El Pasoan imprisoned in the Cereso prison in Juarez for allegedly carrying marijuana in his truck is now in prison on this side of the border.
Shohn Huckabee spent 20 months behind bars for a crime he says he didn’t commit, but because of the violence in and around the prison, he used the prisoner transfer program to and has been in La Tuna since September.
“He's here and his family is very relieved and grateful that he's back in the US as he is as well,” says Kevin Huckabee, father.
Huckabee qualifies for “time served” and should be released in the next few months.
