Colorado Governor Jared Polis has reduced the 110-year sentence of Rogel Aguilera-Mederos.

Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, 26, was driving a semi-truck on April 25, 2019, along Interstate 70 in Lakewood, Colorado, when he slammed into two dozen vehicles – including four other transporters stuck in rush-hour traffic.

The impact caused a fireball explosion that incinerated cars and trucks, killing four people.

The brake failure caused a fiery crash that killed four people, citing the ‘desire’ of the living victims and families of the deceased.

Kim Kardashian had previously urged Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt to spare the life of death row inmate Julius Jones who is due to be executed in three days after the governor refused to see his mother.

Jones, 41, is scheduled to be executed last month for the 1999 shooting death of Edmond businessman Paul Howell during a carjacking.

Jones maintains he is innocent and claims he was framed by the actual killer, Christopher Jordan, a high school friend and co-defendant who testified against Jones and was released from prison after 15 years.

Kardashian, who has been an outspoken advocate of criminal justice reform in recent years, said they are all ‘anxiously waiting’ for a decision from Governor Stitt. 

The state’s Pardon and Parole Board voted 3-1 to recommend Stitt grant clemency to Jones and commute his sentence to life in prison.
