Kim Kardashian has asked for mercy on a truck driver who was sentenced to 110 years in prison after his vehicle’s brakes failed on a highway, killing four people.
Kardashian, who recently passed a baby bar exam and advocates for prison reform in the United States, took to Twitter on Tuesday, December 21 to shed light on the case of Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos.
There are reports that Aguilera-Mederos accidentally crashed into two dozen cars on a Denver freeway in April 2019 after its brakes failed.
The collision resulted in the deaths of four people and in December the driver was sentenced to 110 years in prison by Judge A Bruce Jones.
Sharing that she dived into his case, Kardashian said, “Aguilera-Mederos was not drunk or under the influence at the time of the crash. His brakes on the semi-trailer failed.
She then asked Colorado Governor Jared Polis to grant Aguilera-Mederos clemency, denouncing other unfair aspects of the trial.
According to The Independent, a Change.org petition to commute Aguilera-Mederos’ sentence or grant him leniency has already been signed more than 4.6 million times.
