Not only did we send a letter to Gov. Jared Polis demanding justice in this case, but we also plan to lead a group of us to meet directly with the Governor on this case.
It is very alarming for us that a Latino is being treated in this way when others who are similarly found to be at fault are never held to these standards.
As a Truck Accident Attorney himself, attorney Domingo Garcia knows what it is like to help victims of a deadly truck accident. However most often these problems are from issues with the truck, or maintenance by trucking companies. It would be totally unfair to hold one Latino truck driver responsible for everything that could go wrong in a truck crash or 18-wheeler accident.

Domingo Garcia, the national president of LULAC, said the civil rights organization sent a letter to the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis, on behalf of Aguilera-Mederos, asking for a pardon or reduced sentencing.
“It was an egregious miscarriage of justice,” Garcia said.
An online petition gained millions of signatures urging Polis to grant clemency.
“He got 110 years in prison on his first offense when it was clearly an accident,” Garcia said. “It could happen to anybody. Your brakes go out. It was not intentional. It’s not something that he was trying to do.”
