Wife Of Border Agent Sentenced to Prison for Rough Cuffing a Drug Suspect Speaks Out

"There was absolutely nothing."

Imprissoned border agent Jesus Diaz.

As reported on The Blaze yesterday, Federal Agent Jesus Diaz was sentenced to two years in prison for allegedly roughing up a suspected drug runner who was caught with other illegals, bringing 150 pounds of marijuana across the border from Mexico into the US. Nationally syndicated radio host, and frequent Beck fill-in host, Joe Pagliarulo spoke in great detail with Jesus Diaz's wife about the sentence. Some of the highlights:

- Diaz contends that he did no wrong.

- The suspect did not have any visible marks from "rough handcuffing."

- Despite being caught smuggling drugs into the country and admitting that fact in court, the suspect received immunity for his testimony and walked away a free man.

- Agent Diaz has been in solitary confinement for eight months during this trial and his wife claims he has been shackled during the trial.

- A judge denied Agent Diaz bail, his wife Diana gave birth to a baby girl two weeks after her husband's incarceration, he has never held their child.

You can listen to the full interview below:

Diaz was sentenced to 24 months in a federal prison. He will receive credit for the eight month already served, and will be eligible to move to a halfway house in 10 months.
