A man from Guatemala living illegally in the U.S. was sentenced Friday to the maximum of 16 years in prison for a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, pleaded guilty in July to two counts of operating a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of .15 or more, causing death. The sentence marked the maximum possible under his plea agreement.

The article goes on to state the following:

Investigators said Orrego-Savala had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19 — nearly 2 ½ times Indiana’s legal limit — when his F-150 truck crashed into Jackson and his Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, 54, on Feb. 4 along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.

Monroe, of Avon, Indiana, had pulled over when the 26-year-old Jackson became ill. Both men were standing outside Monroe’s car on the highway’s shoulder when Orrego-Savala’s truck crashed into them.

  1. What is 16 years? Nothing. He took the life of a young man in his prime and the Uber driver wasn’t all that old either. This man has broken into the country, committed crimes, been deported , came back illegally again. How can he be free after only 16 years? What good does it do to deport these criminals? They just come back. Make no mistake about it; all this man will ever be is a criminal and why should US taxpayers have to pay for his incarceration? He should have gotten the death penalty but now we’re stuck with feeding the varmint for the next 16 years, when he will be released, get drunk; still with no driver’s license and no doubt kill or maim someone else. If this is how civilized countries handle their immigration problems then perhaps we need to become uncivilized!
