Judge awards half-million dollars to man shot by US border patrol agent


Border Patrol agents, an FBI investigator and rescue personnel from the Rio Rico Fire District gather along State Route 289 west of Nogales on Nov. 16, 2010, after Border Patrol Agent Abel Canales shot Jesus Castro Romo of Mexico in a nearby canyon area.


U.S. Judge James A. Soto has found that a former Border Patrol agent was not justified when he shot and seriously wounded an undocumented border-crosser west of Nogales in 2010, and awarded the victim nearly $500,000 in damages.
