The illegal immigrants allegedly offer to pay the marines upwards of $8,000 to bring them into the United States. Some of the Marines have already admitted that this was not their first time bringing undocumented immigrants into the United States.
8 of the 16 Marines are also facing drug-related charges. There are very little details on what the drugs charges are about.

If these Marines are found guilty, I expect the penalty to be severe just to set an example for other military personal do commit the same crime.
