There's no mercy for a former U.S. Border Patrol agent who remains behind bars for shooting a fleeing drug suspect.

A federal judge in El Paso, Texas, has upheld Jose Compean's original punishment and resentenced him to 10 years in prison for his conviction on a charge of using a weapon in the commission of a felony and another two years in prison for assault and other charges.

As WND previously reported, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said if Compean and his fellow agent Ignacio Ramos want, they could ask President Bush for clemency.
