Deliberations Resume In US Marshal Trial

BROWNSVILLE - Deliberations are to resume in Brownsville in the case of a deputy U.S. marshal accused of revealing an undercover federal agent's identity to his father, a convicted drug smuggler.

The jury began deliberating the fate of Lucio Moya late Wednesday after he testified in his own defense on charges of obstruction and accessory after the fact. After about an hour, jurors asked to continue Thursday morning.

Moya said that in 2011, his father gave him a copy of a driver's license of a man he said he suspected of drug smuggling. Moya said his father wanted to become a paid informant. But prosecutors say Moya's father was in a drug ring that was trying to check out a driver hired to haul marijuana.
