Two Fort Hood soldiers were sentenced to jail on Friday for their roles in a human smuggling scheme that was discovered last year, according to federal authorities.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas, Isaiah Gore, 21, was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison and Denerio Williams, 22, was sentenced to 2 years in prison.

According to court filings, the operation involved soldiers transporting unauthorised persons in Texas while dressed in their uniforms.

According to court filings, Gore recruited fellow soldiers and paid $2,000 per trip, and Williams went on one of the trips. In December, they both pled guilty to conspiracy counts.

The inquiry began on June 13, when two other military members wearing Army uniforms were apprehended with two illegal immigrants in the trunk of their vehicle at a Hebbronville Border Patrol station in Texas, according to officials.

Prosecutors said the two men, Emmanuel Oppongagyare and Ralph Gregory Saint-Joie, pleaded guilty in August and are awaiting punishment.

Another soldier, Ivory Palmer, has also pled guilty and his sentence is pending.

According to court filings, the excursions did not include crossing the US-Mexico border.

In one case, the individuals were apprehended in McAllen, Texas. According to court filings, in another case, a person was picked up in South Texas, taken past a Border Patrol checkpoint inside the state, and then dropped off in San Antonio.

According to court documents related to his plea deal, Gore told investigators that he was recruited by members of a human smuggling network and that he was told that no one would have to cross the border since the undocumented persons would already be in Texas.
