Fourth Man Pleads Guilty in Border Agent Shooting

Wednesday, 21 Aug 2013 09:06 PM

A 28-year-old man has pleaded guilty in connection with the 2009 killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was lured into a trap to steal his night-vision goggles.

Federal prosecutors in San Diego say Marcos Rodriguez-Perez of Mexico entered his plea Wednesday to several counts, including conspiracy and robbery. The plea agreement calls for a 58-year prison sentence.

In his plea deal, Rodriguez-Perez admitted that he and four others decided to rob Agent Robert Rosas of his night-vision equipment in July 2009. Rodriguez-Perez entered the U.S. with two others through a hole in the border fence, while another two people remained in Mexico and stood watch.

When Rosas resisted, a struggle ensued and he was shot and killed.

Three others have pleaded guilty in the case.
