The lawyer for a U.S. Border Patrol agent charged in Mexico in the shooting death of a teenager along the Rio Grande is rebuffing calls from a Mexican government official that he be sent to there for trial.
Gov. Cesar Duarte of the Mexican state of Chihuahua demanded Thursday that Jesus Mesa be extradited to face murder charges in the June 2010 killing of 15-year-old Sergio Adrian Guereca. Mesa was on a bicycle patrol alongside the river that divides Texas and Mexico when the boy _ among some youths tossing rocks at the officer _ was fatally shot.
Lawyer Randy Ortega tells the El Paso Times ( http://bit.ly/Iy3DqC) that Mesa was acting in his official capacity and doesn't believe there's any treaty that requires Mesa to be extradited.
