Teenís secret tied to fatal crash Panic over his undocumented status police
The Register-Guard ^ | Sept. 28,2012 | Karen McCowan

Lack of immigration papers prompted a Churchill High School student to flee a traffic stop on March 7, causing an accident that killed two people, his attorney said on Thursday.

Emanuel Herrera-­Gutierrez, 16, was sentenced to 75 months in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree manslaughter for recklessly causing the deaths of Toni Lynn Bryson and Richard Lee Taylor. Defense attorney John Kolego said his client was not a legal resident of the United States, despite living here nearly all his life.

“He knew this dark secret that he had, that he was undocumented, even though he’d been here since he was 2,” Kolego said in an interview after the sentencing. “And when he was pulled over by the police officer, the fact that he was undocumented, the fact that he could potentially cause problems for his whole family, just led to pure panic. ... He just panicked and took off. Unfortunately that led to the deaths of two people and to two police officers being injured.”

A first ILLEGAL move does not make the second ILLEGAL move okay.

Covering up for one crime and causing another. While I am empathetic with this kid’s plight— one does not justify the other. And what was the sentence of the parents who put him in such a situation.

So some Lawyer decides to tell the guy “Why you ran from Police and what you were thinking about” ?

Could be True, could be false, as to why he ran. But it is true the guy shouldn’t have been permitted to cross the American border, he might have been a Terrorist. In any event, he continued his illegal ways and ran from the Police killing innocent Americans in the Illegal act.

Guilty, no excuses.

There is no "excuse to flee" when someone has stolen a purse or is avoiding a DWI stop.

The lie-yer can cry me a river. His client is guilty.

Governments have become corrupt.

If this were a citizen, he would get more jail time. Instead he gets a slap on the wrist and sent "home" to come back some other day.

Tag and release does not work.

This story is just making excuses for the boy.
He would have never been deported, obama just gave him amnesty by EO, he gets free education, free health care, has no accountability to the US government......so he wasn’t running because he was afraid.

It's pretty simple...It's the 1st illegal act that allowed the 2nd
Without the 1st...there wouldn't have been a 2nd!

I read an article where an illegal alien raped a two year old and MIGHT face deportation after serving his sentence.

Illegals have all the rights. They don’t have to learn the language- we pay for everything to be translated into Spanish. They even get high paid translators provided for them in schools, hospitals and court. They don’t have to work- we do that so they can reap the benefits of our generations’ hard work. They don’t have to learn the laws- they get excused from every crime imaginable and their country cries foul over every incarceration.

I am sick of it. How many more Americans need to be slaughtered by these criminals and their spawn?

> Lack of immigration papers prompted

Police in most cities are forbidden to ask for immigration papers.

The punk didn’t have a license, prolly because he couldn’t afford to buy a forgery.

I’m sure that if we grant blanket amnesty, all the problems with illegals and crime will go away.

It’s a Kumbaya world in the eyes of the liberal.

” If he had accidentally driven through an Dem Obama rally....?”

They would’ve been very understanding...but only after they figured out he wasn’t a right-wing, Tea Party terrorist.

What total BS....this punk is a Criminal Illegal Alien who murdered two Americans. I could care less when the Criminal Illegal Alien came to America.

I am so tired of the excuses liberals and lawyers use to justify criminal behavior

Kolego said the teen’s undocumented status also helped set those events in motion. Because of it, he was unable to get a driver’s permit and license, as most of his peers were doing. Wanting to drive, he waited until his parents were asleep that night and took their car out without permission.

He made another in a “series of catastrophic choices” when he decided to speed on the Randy Papé Beltline, Hopkins said. An Oregon State Police trooper saw Herrera-Gutierrez driving “about 100 miles an hour” and began pursuing him shortly before the 12:33 a.m. crash, the prosecutor said.

So, this teen kills 2 people while running from the law, is tried, and gets 75 months in prison. Will he be DEPORTED?

Way less than 75 months with good time and time served. He’ll be out in a couple years.

Wave your hand if you really believe he’ll be deported. Anyone? No, I didn’t think so.
