One of the suspects accused in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has plead guilty to first degree murder charges. Under the plea deal, Rosario Rafael Burboa-Alvarez will be sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Burboa-Albarez was not at the scene the night of Terry’s murder in Arizona in Dec. of 2010; he was in Mexico– the one who recruited and paid the so-called “rip-crew” of illegal immigrant criminals that opened fire on Terry and other agents.
In 2012, Burboa-Alvarez was found living and working illegally in Phoenix and was arrested.
Terry’s family calls the guilty plea “appropriate” and issued a statement saying, “We are appreciative of the federal prosecutors and FBI investigators that continue to prosecute those involved in Brian’s murder.” They added that Burboa-Alvarez’s arrest in Phoenix, “is an example of the dangerous and violent criminals moving freely across the US-Mexico border.”
