Conviction upheld for ice cream crash

By  | 

DENVER, Colo. (AP) The Colorado Court of Appeals has upheld the convictions of a Guatemalan man who was sentenced to 60 years in prison for causing a crash that killed three people, including a boy, inside an ice cream shop in Aurora.

The Denver Post reports, the court on Thursday reaffirmed the 19 convictions against Francis Hernandez in the September 2008 deaths of 3 year old Marten Kudlis, 49 year old Patricia Guntharp and 51 year old Debra Serecky.

Prosecutors say Hernandez was driving an SUV at twice the speed limit - more than 80 mph; when it crashed into a pickup truck, which in turn crashed into an ice cream store in the east Denver suburb.

Hernandez will not be eligible for parole until May 2038.
