The Dallas-based truck driver who ended up in a Mexican jail because of the ammunition he was carrying in his trailer was supposed to be sentenced on Wednesday, but the hearing was postponed for a week.
Jabin Bogan, 27, has been in a maximum security prison since April.
After a judge significantly reduced the charges against him last month, Bogan learned the remaining charge, possession of ammunition, could be punishable by a fine up to $20,000 fine and six years in prison.
Bogan's attorney is pushing for a fine only.
His family in North Texas said they don't have that kind of money, and the company he worked has stopped offering financial help.
So they have begun a fund drive among his fellow truckers to raise money to bring him home.
Five months ago, Bogan was making deliveries in El Paso when he was supposed to deliver a load of ammunition to a wholesaler in Phoenix.
The driver said he got lost and ended up on the Mexican border, where a law enforcement officer told him to drive across the bridge.
When Bogan realized he was on Mexican soil, he tried to turn around. His attorney said surveillance video shows a backup for more than half an hour as he tried to get his 18-wheeler turned around.
