Some people in a position of power or authority believe that they can get away with anything, and sadly, some of them do, but not Martin Rene Duran, a former supervisor with the Border Patrol.

Last Friday, Duran was found guilty of seven counts of illegal transportation of firearms and for the possession of an illegal firearm – a short-barreled rifle. The convictions are felonies and will most likely result in prison time when he is sentenced.

He used an Arizona driver’s license to purchase the weapons in Arizona, even though he does not live in Arizona and the address on the license is not one he has ever lived at.

(Los Angeles Times) – A former Border Patrol supervisor and agent was convicted by a San Diego federal jury on seven counts of illegal transportation of firearms and one count of possession of a short-barreled rifle.

The verdict was read against Martin Rene Duran on Friday following a three-day trial. This was his second trial in the case; a jury in October could not reach a unanimous verdict and a mistrial was declared.

According to evidence shown at trial, Duran bought the guns in Arizona using an Arizona driver’s license that listed an address at which he didn’t live. In fact, he was not an Arizona resident but lived in California, the evidence showed.

The purchases were made in 2011, 2013 and 2014, according to the evidence…

Duran’s legal woes are far from over as he is also facing trial for using his authority to protect his brother-in-law from the man whose sons the brother-in-law is accused of sexually molesting. Duran enter false warnings into the Border Patrol computer system in an effort to intimidate the father of the molested boys. Duran’s brother-in-law Raymundo Estrada Figueroa is being tried for the sexual abuse charges.
