American Prisoner in Mexico
Border residents who travel to Mexico frequently try to avoid unnecessary run-ins with the law. Take the case of Shohn Huckabee, a young American from New Mexico. He was arrested in Juarez two years ago and convicted for drug trafficking. As Monica Ortiz Uribe reports for the Fronteras Changing America Desk, Huckabee was later transferred to an American prison. He was released early when authorities determined he had been tortured.
