A drunk-driving illegal alien who was twice deported before he mowed down and killed a police officer was sentenced to 55 years in prison.
Johoan Rodriguez, a 27-year-old veteran border jumper from Mexico, killed Houston police officer Kevin Will on May 29, 2011 as the officer, a husband and father, was investigating a another crash. A drunken Rodriguez plowed into him in the wee hours of the morning.
On Monday, the Houston Chronicle and other news organizations reported, Rodriguez pleaded guilty to intoxication manslaughter. He will spend about 22 years in prison before parole is considered, the newspaper reported.
It’s hard to know which is more unfathomable: the crash itself or that Rodriguez was yet another illegal alien the government permitted to repeatedly enter the country without consequence.
That said, the facts show that Rodriguez was a habitual doper and drunkard. Reported KHOU Television, “Rodriguez had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when he raced through a police roadblock on the North Loop near Yale at an estimated 90 miles an hour on May 29, 2011.” Will was with another HPD member “investigating a motorcycle crash and had closed the highway,” the station noted.
