Teen gets 40 years in Border Patrol agent's murder

We read in the North County Times today,
[INDENT]A 17-year-old Mexican youth was sentenced Thursday to 40 years in prison for the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was shot repeatedly during a robbery attempt.

Christian Daniel Castro Alvarez sat silently with his head down throughout the sentencing by U.S. District Judge M. James Lorenz in San Diego.

Castro pleaded guilty in November to murdering a federal officer near Campo, a mountainous area about 60 miles east of San Diego. He told authorities that he and others were attempting to rob the agent, Robert Rosas.
