Dallas trucker could be freed from Mexican prison

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A Dallas truck driver who says he made a wrong turn into Mexico with a trailer full of ammunition may soon be released from a Mexican prison.

A federal judge overseeing the case of Jabin Bogan tells the El Paso Times that the truck driver can go free after he pays a $1,500 fine.

Bogan's mother, Aletha Smith, told The Associated Press on Friday that the fine is actually higher and that he has been given another week to come up with the money. She says an attorney instructed her to not discuss the amount.

The 27-year-old trucker has been detained since he crossed from Texas into Juarez, Mexico, in April. He had faced up to 30 years in prison for ammunition trafficking, but the judge reduced the charge.
