More than 2 million sign petition to change sentence of I-70 truck driver who caused deadly crash

In similar truck crash cases across the country no one has been charged as unfairly as in this case. It is for good reason so many truckers are now pushing back against even driving through the state of Colorado.

We need Gov. Polis to do what is right in this case so that everyone, including the victims families, can have the justice the deserve.

As an attorney I have defended victims of truck crashes and fought lawsuits against truck insurance companies for very similar reasons. There are clear cases where negligence of the driver is a factor in a crash. While that may be true, and it is something I have seen, it is rare for someone to get any jail time, let alone 110 years in prison.

“This case is so egregious,” Garcia said. “It boggles the mind that here we are in 2021 and that somebody who was not intoxicated, not on drugs… It’s an accident, the brakes went out. But here’s the Latino driver, he gets charged, convicted and given 110 years of prison on his first offense.”

Garcia said it’s not the jury who convicted him, but Jefferson County District Attorney Alexis King because of the charges she chose to file against Aguilera-Mederos. He believes they can file charges with the Colorado Bar Association “to see if she abused her authority.”
“We can ask for a grand jury to be convened to look at official oppression,” Garcia said. “We’re going to ask the Department of Justice to come and investigate the district attorney’s office to see if white defendants are treated different from Black and brown defendants and if there is a pattern and system of practice of just justice and racism discrimination in that district attorney’s office.”
