Illegal Alien Gets 7 Years in Prison for Killing Father of Two, Corey Cottrell

John Binder, Breitbart, June 23, 2020

An illegal alien who killed father of two, Corey Cottrell, has been sentenced to seven years in Illinois prison after previously being freed on bail.

As Breitbart News has chronicled, 27-year-old illegal alien Jose Rodriguez from Honduras pleaded guilty in January to running a red light on June 22, 2019, in Illinois, causing him to hit and kill 39-year-old Corey Cottrell.

Cottrell, the father of two daughters, was riding his motorcycle at the time to visit his mother Kathy. Rodriguez — given a driver’s license by the sanctuary state of Illinois — fled the scene of the accident under suspicious circumstances and turned himself in the following day.

On Tuesday, Rodriguez was sentenced to just seven years in prison for killing Cottrell and fleeing the scene of the accident. {snip}


Even after Rodriguez pleaded guilty in January to felony hit-and-run involving a death, he was allowed to remain out of jail free on bail.


Despite being ordered deported in 2013 and 2014, the illegal alien was never deported. The Cottrell family also suspects Rodriguez was drunk when he hit and allegedly killed Corey.
