Denver, Colorado – The truck driver facing a mountain of felony charges in connection to a crash along I-70 that took the lives of four people may soon be getting a new lawyer after his was just arrested… again.
Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos is facing 36 felony counts along with 4 other misdemeanor charges after the big rig he was driving plowed into slowed traffic on I-70 during rush hour back in April.
Though he has since been released from jail on bond, he now has even more to worry about.
Mederos’ attorney, Denver-based lawyer Robert Corry, was arrested on Friday and booked into the Denver Downtown Detention Center on charges of aggravated motor vehicle theft, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and first-degree kidnapping.
According to a Denver Police Department spokesman, Corry was arrested in connection with an incident that happened Wednesday night.
When you need a criminal defense attorney, you want one that is a criminal. Who would have thought your cell mate could be your lawyer too?
Officials have not yet revealed the details of the incident.
He is being held with no bond allowed, according to authorities.
Oh, the irony. Your client killed four people and got bailed out. The lawyer cant. I would suggest a GPS tracker, but that would be way to embarrassing.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!!!!
This guy was pretty busy in the court room in 2013, as a lawyer and defendant.
The first incident was when he was caught smoking marijuana at a Colorado Rockies game, according to multiple reports.
Corry is a noted advocate of marijuana legalization and helped draft Amendment 64 to legalize the drug oin Colorado.
Um, I have no problem is you want to smoke a joint, but come on dude. At a baseball game? I’m sure the stadium was full of stoners and not families who maybe just maybe, did not want to inhale pot smoke.
Later that year he was arrested after authorities say he smashed out an RV window.
He was booked for investigation of felony menacing and criminal mischief, but later agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of destruction of private property and disturbing the peace.
Does anyone want to guess that somehow involved him being high ?
Are we done? NOPE !!!
In 2005, Corry was found guilty in Jefferson County of misdemeanor assault and sentenced to 60 days in jail and five years’ probation, according to court records.
How this guy is still allowed to practice law is beyond me. This is not the twist in the case I was expecting.
So here is my question. Do we get a new lawyer? Statt a GoFundMe for the current one? Or is this the window the Cuban crasher was waiting for to run?
Stay tuned. This just keeps getting better and better.
