Texas trucker's arrest to be re-enacted in Mexico
EL PASO, TX -- The attorney of a Dallas trucker jailed in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on ammunition smuggling charges says a Mexican court has ordered a re-enactment of events leading to the arrest.
Attorney Emilio de la Rosa says experts and prosecutors will attend the Thursday re-enactment of the moment when Jabin Bogan tried to make a U-turn at a border crossing bridge. Bogan tried the U-turn after realizing he was in Mexico carrying 268,000 bullets inside his 18-wheeler.
Bogan has claimed his GPS malfunctioned, directing him to Mexico. Mexican customs officials testified he was trying to turn and, when asked, showed paperwork showing the ammunition was destined for a wholesaler in Arizona.
Mexican authorities have charged him with smuggling military ammunition, which carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.
