Drug Smuggler Shot By Border Agents Indicted

Johnny Sutton’s star witness

An admitted Mexican smuggler faces federal drug charges more than two years after being shot by a pair of U.S. Border Patrol agents who were later convicted in the shooting, authorities said.

Osvaldo Aldrete Davila, who was shot in the buttocks in February 2005 after fleeing from border agents during a smuggling attempt, has been indicted on charges of smuggling marijuana in September and October of that year, U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton said Thursday.

Aldrete is to appear Friday in federal court.

He was arrested Thursday at an El Paso border crossing on charges of possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance, conspiracy to import a controlled substance and conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

This is the kind of person that the federal government uses to put Border Patrol agents in jail. He was already under investigation by the DEA, as well.

If you haven’t signed the petion yet, why not?

PS: according to Grassfire.org, Ramos and Compean will have an appeal hearing on December 3rd. Cross your fingers.
