Posted: 1:13 PM- A man who loaned his vehicle to transport undocumented immigrants for a trip that ended in eight deaths was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison.

Bruno Garcia-Lopez, 31 - who also used the names Neftali Espinoza and Adolfo Manuel Espinoza - had pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the transportation of aliens in the United States. He admitted that he allowed his Chevrolet Suburban to be used to take immigrants in the country illegally from Arizona to other places.

The sentence was imposed by U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell in Salt Lake City.

According to a charging document, co-defendant Rigoberto Salas-Lopez was driving the vehicle from Phoenix to St. Louis on April 17, 2007, when it rolled on U.S. Highway 191 south of Bluff. Eight of the 14 people on board were killed.

Investigators say the vehicle's occupants, four from Mexico and 10 from Guatemala, were all in the United States illegally. Salas-Lopez was sentenced in June to four years in prison.

Garcia-Lopez, who was not in the Suburban at the time of the accident, will be deported after he serves his sentence.

Definitely more good news, JDubsMom . . .

That's a very kind sentence for someone blatantly aiding and abetting common criminals. Not to mention being directly responsible for the deaths of 8 individuals.

Whatever happened to an eye for an eye? This guy's sentence should be the re-enactment of what happened to his victims:

Seat belt him and 14 members of his family into a vehicle, put it in neutral and allow Americans to push the vehicle over a cliff. Maybe then they will think twice before making stupid choices.
