17-Year-Old Sentenced In Border Agent’s Death

May 2, 2010

California (ChattahBox) – A 17-year-old Mexican teen has been sentenced in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert W. Rosas Jr.

Christian Daniel Castro-Alvarez was found guilty of helping several other lure Rosas out of his car, where he was then shot to death before being robbed as the group fled into the U.S. on July 23, 2009.

Castro-Alvarez denies knowing the others in the group, a claim that many call ‘ridiculous’.

Based on the cold-blooded nature of the murder, and his unwillingness to cooperate in bringing his co-conspirators to justice, he was charged as an adult and given the maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.

“This brutal act of violence on a U.S. Border Patrol agent cannot and will not be tolerated. Although Mr. Castro-Alvarez has well earned this long custodial sentence, his punishment will never repay the debt he owes to those he has affected and who grieve the murder of Agent Rosas,” U.S. Border Patrol Acting Chief Patrol Agent Richard A. Barlow said in an official statement of the sentence.
