The Associated Press reports that former Border Patrol agent Jose Alonso Compean was resentenced today to his original 12-year prison term. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out some of the convictions against Compean and Ignacio Ramos Ramos earlier this year, prompting the resentencing. Ramos will be resentenced Thursday. Compean's attorney says the case "just screams for executive clemency." See post here.
