Judge agreed to schedule a resentencing hearing for truck driver Rogel Mederos
The judge overseeing the case of a truck driver who caused a fatal accident in Colorado in 2019, and was sentenced to 110 agreed to schedule a resentencing hearing.
According to the article in denver.cbslocal.com – “On Monday, Alexis King, the Jefferson County district attorney, asked the judge to lower Aguilera-Mederos’ sentence down to 20 to 30 years.
Judge A. Bruce Jones agreed to schedule the resentencing hearing for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13.
The judge questioned how much discretion he has in the resentencing, which he called “troubling.”
“I’m concerned about turning this thing into a circus and it will not be a circus, as far as I’m concerned,” Jones stated.
“Any outbursts will result in the immediate removal of that person from the courtroom.”
He will not hear from anyone on the defense side, other than counsel. He said he is willing to hear from victims impacted by the crash — if they choose to.
“I’ll hear them out if they want to speak to me,” he said. “They don’t have to put themselves through that stress again.”
