In the end, a Kandiyohi County jury believed that Olga Franco was behind the wheel of a van when it plowed into a loaded Cottonwood school bus nearly six months ago, killing four students and injuring 17.

The 24-year-old Guatemalan native, who had claimed that her boyfriend was driving the van, showed no emotion when the verdict was read ó guilty on all 24 counts, including criminal vehicular homicide and criminal vehicular injury.

Family members of the victims wept quietly as the verdict was read about 10 p.m.

Over more than four days of testimony from crash experts and other witnesses, the jurors had been faced with one central question: Had Franco been driving the van that plowed into the bus on Feb. 19?

Even if they had determined that Franco wasnít behind the wheel and had acquitted her, she hadnít been expected to walk out of the courthouse. She still faces federal identity theft charges and was likely to be deported because authorities say she is in the country illegally.

In addition to the above-mentioned crimes, she was also charged with failure to stop at a stop sign, not having a valid driverís license, and providing a false name and date of birth to a police officer.

Shown below are the four children killed (left to right) Hunter Javens, 9, and his brother Jesse Javens, 13, both of Cottonwood; Emilee Olson, 9, of Cottonwood; and Reed Stevens, 12, of Marshall, MN.

To the cheap labor advocates, those children's lives was a small price to pay for them to have their unlimited low-wage workers.

The employers of the illegals should be required to pay the damages done by their illegals but what they have instead are the quick profits from bringing in the cheapest possible labor and the taxpayers must subsidize it all.

There should also be required jail time for them in the same cell with their illegal alien employees. I bet that would put an end of all of this in record time.
