How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former Army Sniper Sentenced to 20 Years for Conspiring to Kill DEA Agent

A former U.S. Army sniper instructor accused of conspiring in a plot to kill a DEA agent was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison.

The Associated Press reports that Joseph Hunter, also known as Rambo, was accused of receiving $100,000 to recruit snipers to kill a DEA agent. The people h
e hired – a former U.S. Army soldier and an ex-German soldier – were sentenced earlier to 20 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain said Hunter made the “dishonorable choice” to conspire to kill an agent and a cooperating witness in Liberia in 2013.

“His was a choice that betrayed society and the honor and trust that this country invested in his military career,” Swain said.
