A man who was part of a human smuggling operation was sentenced to 10 years in prison in Tucson federal court Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Audias Sanchez-Collins and 26 others charged in the case smuggled around 150 undocumented migrants into the U.S., including 13 children. The group also laundered over $1 million made in the case.

Sanchez-Collins was a leader of the smuggling operation, the U.S. Attorney's office says.
