No, not the illegal immigrants accused of killing three innocent kids in Newark. No, not the illegal immigrant accused in the triple murder mentioned yesterday that killed an entire family. This is a different illegal immigrant suspected in a different triple murder. Illegal immigrant Pastor Rios Sanchez is accused of speeding and driving drunk when he allegedly killed 16-year-old Ben Leonard, 18-year-old Jennifer Carter and 22-year-old Megan Hughes in a car wreck.
Under a plea deal to be offered by Assistant District Attorney Mike Beam, most charges would be dropped, Sanchez would plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and would be sentenced to no more than 16 to 20 months in prison per count. With 10 months off for time served, that could work out to a sentence of a little more than 3 years or 1 year and 20 days per murder.
