Prosecutions progress in Fast and Furious case

PHOENIX (AP) -

 Prosecutions have been progressing steadily against people targeted in the government's gun smuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious.
   Eight of the smuggling ring's straw buyers are set to be sentenced this month.
   And a judge in a separate but related case also is set to sentence a man in March for his part in Agent Brian Terry's death during a 2010 shootout north of the Arizona-Mexico border.
   Two rifles bought by a ring member were found at the shootout scene.
   Federal authorities conducting the Fast and Furious investigation have faced tough criticism for allowing suspected straw gun buyers for the ring to walk away from gun shops in Arizona with weapons, rather than arrest the suspects and seize the guns there.
