This Thursday (30) the sentence of more than a century was reduced to ten years for a fatal traffic accident of a Latin immigrant in 2019, following a massive appeal for mercy joined by ‘reality show’ star Kim. Kardashian.

“After learning of the unusually high and unjust sentence in your case, I will commute your sentence to ten years and allow you to apply for parole on December 30, 2026,” Colorado Governor Jared Police wrote in a letter to Rogel Aguilera-Maduros. .

A 26-year-old Cuban immigrant lost control of his vehicle while driving a timber truck on a hilly state road in April 2019, killing four people and injuring six others. The driver argued that the brakes had failed.

In October, he was found guilty of several counts, including reckless driving. Two weeks ago, he was sentenced to at least 110 years in prison under local law for the charges against him.

More than 4.6 million people signed the mercy petition. Actress Kim Kardashian, who is preparing to become a lawyer, has joined the public protest.

“Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos has a clean traffic record and no criminal record,” the request sent to the Colorado governor and the judiciary said.

“I think you deserve mercy for a number of reasons,” police wrote. “Although he is not acquitted, his sentence is comparable to that of others in the criminal justice system for violent crimes, whether intentional or intentional.”

The governor pointed out that the case illustrates the need to discuss the regional legal framework that mandates minimum penalties for certain crimes.

“I apologize,” the driver told the court in tears two weeks ago.

Four people between the ages of 24 and 69 were killed in the crash.

The prosecution had said that a new inquiry should be held to reconsider the sentence extension.
