Truck driver sentenced to 110 years in prison reduced to 10 years

Truck driver Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, 26, was sentenced to 110 years in prison for killing 4 people in a fatal truck accident when he failed to complete the task.

And now his sentence has been reduced to ten years …

After millions of people protested on social media and truck drivers refused to go to Colorado.

People argued that his unfortunate breaks, which resulted in 4 deaths, were not his fault and therefore he did not deserve to live behind bars.

Internet users even compared The Aguilera-Mederos case against Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three people during the Kenosha riots, was acquitted. Also Ethan Coach, who killed 4 people while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and received a ten-year probation. And Ghislaine Maxwell, who was involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s child trafficking network for sexual exploitation, who could face up to sixty-five years behind bars.

So, on Thursday, Governor Jared Polis in a letter to Aguilera-Mederos said that he was reducing the sentence to ten years.

“I change your sentence for ten years and grant you the right to parole on December 30, 2026,” it said after he said he had reviewed his “unfair” sentence.

“You were sentenced to 110 years in prison, essentially more than life imprisonment, for a tragic but unintentional act. While you are not flawless, your sentence is disproportionate to many other prisoners in our criminal justice system who have committed willful, willful or violent crimes, ”the report said.

“The crimes of which you have been convicted are grave. Four people died and others were seriously injured due to your poor decisions.

“The families of these victims will never again have the opportunity to hug their lost loved ones. It was a tragic event that affected many Colorado residents. Although your actions have caused great pain, I am encouraged by your personal reflection and the changes in the safety of commercial vehicles that have been made since this tragedy to ensure that such events never happen again, ”the judge said.

“You wonder why your life was saved when other lives were taken away. You will struggle with the burden of this event for the rest of your life, but never forget that because of this event, countless others will struggle with the loss of loved ones or injury, and you will serve your just sentence. “It’s over.

And among the 5 million people who opposed the unfair hearing and joined in to support a petition to reduce his 110-year sentence was Kim Kardashian …

Who has now shared another tweet about recent changes in his verdict.
“Thank you @GovofCO for taking measures to mitigate the sentence of Mr. Aguilera-Mederos! Although his new term is ten years, he will now have the opportunity to return home in five years and be with his son and wife, ”she wrote.

And then the American TV presenter said that the mandatory minimums did not work.

“This case was a clear example of why mandatory minimums do not work and should be canceled.

“I am grateful to the Governor of Polis for his sympathy and leadership in this matter,” she finished.

And while some still think he could have avoided a fatal accident, most people are more than happy that he was given a commutation of his sentence.

We feel sorry for all those who are struggling with the loss of loved ones, and we hope that you will find a way to heal.

What do you think of his new sentence?
