Before being charged with killing a Porter woman and her pregnant daughter in a crash Sunday, Ignacio Gomez-Gutierrez had been convicted three times for drunken driving in Harris County, court records show.#$&@!!!
His third DWI arrest, which would normally become a felony, was reduced to a misdemeanor, a move the mayor's crime victims advocate calls a "pivotal moment" that ultimately led to the deaths of Maria Ortiz, 49, and her 18-year-old daughter, Vanessa, who was five months pregnant.
Records also show Gomez-Gutierrez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was never deported after serving his time in jail in 2002, 2004 and 2005.
How much more of this shit are we supposed to take?
killed this mother and her pregnant daughter...
like this ...
He's here illegally. He has three prior DUI convictions. The third, which should have been an automatic felony, was reduced to a misdemeanor. He was not deported after serving time for any of the three crimes.
This is so far beyond ridiculous that I don't even know what to say. Yet it keeps happening. Over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over.
I don't know what else to do, so I'll keep blogging, and telling people, and screaming, and crying, and writing some more.
