How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Ex-Border Patrol Agent Sentenced to 13+ Years for Smuggling Cocaine

A former Border Patrol agent was sentenced to more than 13 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to charges that he tried to smuggle cocaine in Arizona.

Juan Pimentel, of Rio Rico, was arrested in November 2015 after authorities say he thought he was smuggling 110 pounds of cocaine, the Associated Press reports. He actually was unwittingly part of a sting operation and was carrying a white powder.

Pimentel, who also pleaded guilty to receiving a bribe by a public official, took cash in exchange for looking up a license plate from a database used only by law enforcement.

Pimentel served as an agent in Arizona since 2001 before resigning after his arrest.
