Phoenix, AZ -

A Mexican man is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Phoenix today for the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death revealed a botched law enforcement sting called Fast and Furious.

Prosecutors want Manuel Osorio-Arellanes to serve 30 years in prison for the shooting death of Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

The shootout brought to light that agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed suspected gun smugglers to buy weapons from Phoenix area gun shops with the intention of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels.  Agents lost track of most of the weapons.

Of the 2,000 weapons purchased, more than 1,400 were unaccounted for.  Two of those guns were found at the scene of Agent Terry's death.  More guns were found at crime scenes in Mexico.
