Man accused in 'Fast and Furious' case to change plea
Jaime Avila Jr. allegedly bought two rifles found at the scene of the fatal shooting of a federal agent
By Jacques Billeaud
Jaime Avila Jr. faces charges of dealing guns without a license and making false statements in firearms purchases as part of the investigation.
Avila had previously pleaded not guilty.
He is accused of working in a ring accused of buying guns and smuggling them into Mexico for use by the Sinaloa drug cartel.
Authorities say two AK-47 variants bought by Avila were found after a 2010 shootout that killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
