A Mexican man was sentenced to 27 years in prison for his part in killing Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010, Reuters reports.

Rosario Burboa-Alvarez, who pleaded guilty in August to first-degree murder, hired six men to rob marijuana smugglers and retrieve a cache of weapons near the border.

The men ended up in a gun battle that claimed the life of Terry.

“Agent Terry’s murder was a tragically foreseeable consequence of Defendant’s recruitment of a ‘rip crew’ to engage in armed robberies,” prosecutors said in a sentencing memorandum.

Some of the weapons left behind were traced to the U.S. government’s flawed “Fast and Furious” gun-running probe.
