A Border Patrol agent in California accused of allowing illegal immigrants entry into the country by accepting bribes pleaded guilty to several charges Thursday, Fox News reports.

Hector Rodriguez admitted he received bribes in the form of cash, luxury cars and the use of an apartment in exchange for letting immigrants pass the border at the San Ysidro Port-of-Entry, according to Fox News.

At one point, Rodriguez is accused of letting two vehicles packed with 14 immigrants pass through.

He is to be sentenced in July.
