Luis Fonseca acquitted: Moment that led to U.S. border agent being accused of strangling Mexican immigrant captured on newly released video
Last month, a jury let Luis Fonseca walk out of court a free man, having cleared him on charges he inappropriately choked, kicked, and called a captive immigrant who’d just illegally crossed the U.S. border a ‘f*****g Mexican.’
The video was not released at the time of the April 2013 trial. However, a group of local news organizations and the Associated Press petitioned a judge to have the footage released.
