Two Border Patrol agents have been sentenced to two years in prison after forcing suspected trafficking to eat marijuana and run around the Arizona desert, RT reports [2].

The agents, Dario Castillo, 25, and Ramon Zuniga, 31, were convicted of violating the civil rights of fourĀ  Mexican men who were in the U.S. legally.

Both agents were fired shortly after the incident.

They told authorities they were overworked at the end of a long day.

“I allowed these individuals to get the best of me that night,” Zuniga said to the judge, according to Reuters. “I’ve regretted those actions every single day for the past five years.”
