EL PASO, Texas -- A Dallas trucker detained for eight months in Mexico on accusations that he smuggled assault rifle ammunition is expected to return Friday to the United States.

Jabin Bogan was released from a Mexican prison about two weeks ago but was later detained by immigration authorities. Attorney Carlos Spector tells The Associated Press that a plane carrying Bogan is expected to land in the Mexican border city of Juarez Friday afternoon. Bogan is scheduled to speak at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, a few hours later.

He tried to turn back, but was directed to an inspection area and arrested.
