At least four U.S. Army soldiers worked with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to supply them with more than 40 assault rifles.
This week, U.S. Army Sergeant Julian Presas stood before Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio, who sentenced him to 16 years and 8 months in federal prison, information provided to Breitbart Texas by the U.S. Attorney’s Office revealed. The case was investigated jointly by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Homeland Security Investigations.
The sentence comes after Presas pleaded guilty to six federal weapons charges in December. According to prosecutors, Presas recruited three other soldiers to help him purchase more than 40 assault rifles that he then delivered to Gulf Cartel members for smuggling into Mexico.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/11/03/four-u-s-soldiers-sentenced-supplying-arms-mexicos-gulf-cartel/” target=”_blank”]
