Smuggler Gets Nearly 7 Years for Texas Ship Channel Death

Wed May 24 08:29:54 CEST 2017 arnekiel

(AP) — A convicted human smuggler from Mexico must serve nearly seven years in a U.S. prison over the 2015 death of an immigrant struck by a Coast Guard boat as she tried to reach Texas. Galdino Jose Ruiz-Hernandez of Oaxaca (wuh-HAH'-kah), Mexico, was sentenced Monday in Brownsville. The 38-year-old Ruiz-Hernandez was convicted of human smuggling leading to death. Ruiz-Hernandez received 80 months for smuggling and 24 months for illegally re-entering the U.S, with the sentences concurrent. The Mexican later faces deportation. Authorities say Ruiz-Hernandez was in the water guiding the woman through the Brownsville Ship Channel when she was hit by a Coast Guard patrol boat. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/texas/articles/2017-05-23/smuggler-gets-nearly-7-years-for-texas-ship-channel-death
