Illegal Alien Sentenced To Five Years After Causing Crash That Killed 23-Year-Old Airman

He reportedly managed to avoid a harsher punishment because he accepted a plea deal.

Juan Castillo Reyes, an undocumented immigrant who had been living in the country since 2005, was recently sentenced to five years behind bars for causing a car accident last year that killed a 23-year-old airman (pictured above).

Last year, an illegal alien who had been driving without a license reportedly caused a car crash that killed a 23-year-old airman of the United States Air Force. Earlier this week, though, he was, quite shockingly, only sentenced to 5 years behind bars.

Unsurprisingly, the liberal mercy that he seemed to receive, which many, including the father of the victim, saw as a slap on the wrist, consequently ripped the victim’s family further apart and left them “very disappointed.”

Specifically, Juan Castillo Reyes, an undocumented immigrant who had been living in the country since 2005, was sentenced to a mere 5 years in jail shortly after pleading guilty earlier this week to one charge of “vehicular homicide” and one charge of “driving without a license.”

He reportedly received the two charges for purportedly speeding in a construction zone on a highway in Fort Gordon, Georgia and allegedly causing a car accident that ended up killing 23-year-old Alexander Earles, who had served in the military for roughly six years before to his death.  

“I didn’t mean to do this,” Reyes tearfully insisted during the trial against him.

“And I know your pain because my family is going through it too,” continued the illegal alien, adding, “I could only imagine what you’re going through,” he added.  

In an attempt to portray his client as a good person, Reyes’ lawyer pointed out that he could have fled the scene but chose to stay and be held accountable.

“Knowing what he faced, he could have left. People told him to, but instead, he said I caused this and I’m going to answer for it,” he mentioned as if Reyes should be given a more lenient sentence for doing what he was legally supposed to do.

Patrick Earles, who is Earles’ father, however, told reporters he was largely unmoved by Reye’s emotional testimony.

“Tears don’t matter to me or my family, they may matter to the court,” explained Earles’ father while speaking to reporters about the trial.  

“The only thing I’m celebrating is that the matter is closed,” he added, referring to the ending of the trial.  

“I’m not celebrating the announcement or the verdict in any way whatsoever,” he continued, noting, “in fact, I’m very disappointed.”

To clarify, he stated, “there are consequences of our decisions. The defendant didn’t intentionally kill my son but he took something very substantial, it cannot be replaced, we cannot be compensated for it.”

By saying this, Earles’ father appears to be basically suggesting that there is likely no punishment that Reyes could have received that would have made their family feel whole again and that the loss of their child is something that will cause them to suffer immensely for the rest of their lives.

Incredibly, though, Earles’ father told reporters that their family has ultimately forgiven Reyes for what he did.

“We forgive him because it’s the right thing to do for him and for us. He has to come to reconciliation for himself,” he reasoned.

According to reports, despite the fact that Reyes was sentenced to a total of five years behind bars, he will apparently be allowed to be released on parole as early as next year.

Since he pleaded guilty, though, federal agents would thankfully be able to step in and deport him whenever he gets released.

Sadly, it is quite common for people to be harmed or killed by illegal aliens.

For example, a few weeks ago, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, a 36-year-old illegal immigrant originally from Peru, was placed under arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting roughly four women while purportedly working as a rideshare driver.

And several weeks before that, Carlos Melara, a 21-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador and alleged member of MS-13, was reportedly convicted of participating in the horrific killing of a 15-year-old teenage boy in Massachusetts. According to reports, Melara had lured the teen to a park and then proceeded to stab him to death with a couple of other gang members in an ambush-style attack.

Prior to that, Miguel “Timido” Angel Lopez-Abrego, a 19-year-old illegal immigrant who’s also believed to be in MS-13 as well, was placed under arrest by police officers in Maryland for allegedly being helping several other gang members murder an unidentified man, whose body was later buried in the Maryland woods.

In addition to harming and killing American citizens, some undocumented aliens have also undermined the integrity of the United States’ voting system.  

Earlier this year, for instance, law enforcement officials in Texas arrested Marcela Gutierrez, who is not a US citizen, for allegedly submitting votes on the ballots of numerous residents without their consent or knowledge while volunteering at a local voting center.  

And just before that, the state’s law enforcement placed Laura Janeth Garza, who is a 37-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico, under arrest and charged her with “voter impersonation and ineligible voting” for allegedly stealing the identity of another citizen. Which she then used to illegally vote in multiple past elections.

Although many would undoubtedly agree that these incidents help make it clear that illegal immigration must not be tolerated, there are, unfortunately, still countless others who may still believe that those who enter our country should not be deported. Hopefully, though, stories like this will at the very least give them pause.
