The Associated Press
Prosecutors said Ochoa Estrada was fleeing from federal agents toward Mexico in February 2004 when he rammed the car of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer and then led officers from three agencies on a 15-mile (24-kilometer) chase between Bisbee and Mexico.
Ochoa Estrada was caught after abandoning his truck with 647.5 pounds (291 kilograms) of marijuana in it.
He was convicted of charges including assault on a federal officer with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
