(WASHINGTON POST) Two Army soldiers are facing up to a decade each in federal prison after they admitted they agreed to smuggle undocumented immigrants through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in exchange for $1,500.

Marco Antonio Nava Jr., 19, and Joseph Edmond Cleveland, 25, both of El Paso, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday, five months after they were caught driving two Mexican men through an immigration checkpoint in South Texas, according to the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of Texas.

The soldiers drove to the checkpoint about 75 miles north of the border on June 18 with the two Mexican men, Marcelino Oliveros-Padilla and Jose Osorio-Rebollar, in the back passenger seats.
