Sentencing set for alleged rip-off crew member

TUCSON - A man accused of robbing marijuana smugglers after they sneaked into the United States will be sentenced in federal court on Dec. 17 for a conspiracy conviction.

Authorities say Rito Osorio-Arellanes was part of a ring that preyed on smugglers.

Five other members of the alleged rip-off crew were accused of murder in the December 2010 shooting death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Rito Osorio-Arellanes was in custody before the shooting and doesn't face murder charges in Terry's death.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery.

One of the five people charged in Terry's death has pleaded guilty to a murder charge

Of the four others charged in Terry's death, one is in custody, while three others remain fugitives.
