The Arizona Capital Times reports Julio Jose Carillo, one of the “straw purchasers” for the Sinaloa Cartel, is set to plead guilty.
Briefly quoting the Capital Times report linked above:
Carrillo had previously pleaded not guilty to faces charges of conspiracy, dealing guns without a license, making false statements during a firearms purchase and money laundering.
He is accused of buying 10 AK-47 variants from a gun shop in metro Phoenix on behalf of the ring.
I note that the Capital Times still calls Operation Fast and Furious a “botched investigation” instead of an attempt to provide arms to the Sinaloa Cartel, in order to provide a basis for gun control laws. Laws that have historically driven violent crime rates sky high.
