The garbage truck driver who struck and killed a bicyclist in Dupont Circle two years ago has just been sentenced to more than two and a half years in prison.
Marco Flores Fuentes pleaded guilty to entering the country illegally after deportation on drug charges. He was never charged in the accident that killed 22 year old Alice Swanson.
I don’t give a damn about his entering the country illegally. Sounds like he had a family to support, and had done a decent job of it. But he, in my view, negligently hit and killed a young woman and was never even charged with it. This doesn’t do justice for anyone.
