A criminal alien who had been kicked out of America sneaked back into the country and took the lives of a firefighter and his two children — and the creep gets two years in prison.
Texas firefighter Captain Peter Hacking, 36, his four-year-old daughter Ellie and 22-month-old son Grayson were on their way home to Lavon when their car was slammed head on by a van driven by the unlicensed illegal alien who had crossed the center line.
Margarito Quintero Rosales, a Mexican who had been deported in 2008, was indicted on three counts of manslaughter, each carrying a maximum penalty of 20 years in jail.
The criminal alien should have been thrown in jail for 60 years.
But he struck a deal with Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis that cut the charge to a single count of criminally negligent homicide. The other two counts were dismissed by 308th District Court Judge Benjamin N. Smith as part of the plea deal.
The maximum penalty for criminally negligent homicide is two years in jail.
And the sickening travesty of justice doesn’t end there. Rosales was given credit for the 500 days he had served awaiting trial, leaving him just over 100 days in jail.
Courtney Hacking, the firefighter’s widow, is worried Rosales will sneak back into the country again after he’s released from jail and deported next year.
“What’s he going to do next time?” she said. “Is he going to hold up a bank? Because all we’ve done is give him a slap him on the wrist.”
