A federal trial with national attention began this week in Tucson. Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz faces murder charges for the death of Mexican citizen Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez in 2012. Swartz shot the teen several times through the border fence in Nogales.
Tucson attorney Bill Risner has represented several plaintiffs in civil cases against the Border Patrol. He explained what makes Swartz's trial unique, and what jurors in Southern Arizona are being asked to consider.
