A former U.S. Border Patrol agent on Tuesday pleaded guilty in federal court in Houston to violating the civil rights of two undocumented immigrants, admitting he pistol-whipped an unarmed man and forced another to his knees and held a gun to his head, authorities said.

Court records documenting the arrest and conviction of 28-year-old Santiago Perez of Edinburg were not available Tuesday night, despite being ordered unsealed earlier in the afternoon by U.S. District Judge Nancy F. Atlas.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Houston, Perez faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $500,000 at his November sentencing. He has been released on a $50,000 bond.
