Colorado DA asks court to reconsider 110-year sentence for truck driver in fatal I-70 crash

A Colorado district attorney is asking the court to reconsider the 110-year prison sentence given to truck driver Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, who was convicted in the 2019 crash on Interstate 70 that killed four people. A status hearing in the case has been set for Monday morning, according to online court records.
First Judicial District Attorney Alexis King filed a motion on Friday asking the court to reconsider Aguilera's sentence and a second motion on Tuesday to expedite the process, so it could be heard by the judge who presided over the case. Aguilera-Mederos, 26, was found guilty in October of four counts of vehicular homicide and 23 other charges, including six counts of assault in the first degree -- extreme indifference; 10 counts of attempt to commit assault in the first degree -- extreme indifference; two counts of vehicular assault -- reckless; one count of reckless driving; and four counts of careless driving causing death.
