The leader of a militia that rounded up migrants at gunpoint along the US-Mexico border has pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge.
Larry Hopkins, who leads the United Constitutional Patriots, or UCP, faces up to 10 years in prison on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a plea agreement.
The agreement, which must be approved later by a federal judge, brings the prosecution of Hopkins a step closer to resolution less than a year after videos surfaced showing militia members detaining migrants
at the border.
