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 hed 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.

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 teens undocumented status also helped set those events in motion. Because of it, he was unable to get a drivers 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.
Not goin to work not goin to School but joy riding while parents asleep! and @ 100mph!
I have so much empathy for this Illegal Mex my heart bleeds!
Why Because I know another Mexican Illegal is just around the corner to kill and maim another on the road!
Should have gotten 10yrs min! then deportation!
Wait a minute why feed him just deport em! To Afganastan!
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.
