Deliberations continue in US marshal trial

8/23/2013

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Deliberations are to deliberate a third day in Brownsville in the case of a deputy U.S. marshal accused of revealing an undercover federal agent's identity to his father, a convicted drug smuggler.

The jury continues deliberations Friday on the fate of Lucio Moya. Those deliberations began late Wednesday after Moya testified in his own defense on charges of obstruction and accessory after the fact.

Moya said that in 2011, his father gave him a copy of a driver's license of a man he said he suspected of drug smuggling. Moya said his father wanted to become a paid informant. But prosecutors say Moya's father was in a drug ring that was trying to check out a driver hired to haul marijuana.
