Drunken driver gets 8-year prison term, then deportation to Mexico

Published: Fri, January 27, 2012 @ 3:30 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The drunken driver who seriously injured two college students in a head-on collision on Western Reserve Road last summer is going to prison for eight years, after which he’ll be deported to Mexico.

Judge John M. Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court imposed the prison time today on Victor Manuel Galindo-Barjas, 36, who had earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated vehicular assault and one count of drunk driving in the July 25 crash.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that Barjas had a blood-alcohol content of 0.273 — more than three times the state legal limit of 0.08.

“The choice to drink and drive is like placing a bullet in a gun...and pulling the trigger,” said Judge Durkin, adding that the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement will deport Barjas to his native Mexico when his prison term ends.

Once they deport him it should be the death penalty if this loser comes back as they always do!

Deporting him now would be a gift to him.

Let's let him suffer under U.S. law and pay for his dangerous drinking and driving. He should lose at least 8 years of his life, but we all know he will get time off for good behavior in 2 or 3 years.

He'll get deported and come back, just like a barn rat.

Is a barn rat a new kind hood rat ???
Or is a kind of it's own ???
You should make it clear when call names .
But I'm sure he will be back to work for some farmer.
The story did not say if he was illegal or not . Did he have a GREEN card ??

Forget prison time and deportation! FRY HIS MEXICAN BUTT and send his body back to Mexico! I'll pay the power bill and the freight charges! If we send more dead bodies back to Mexico instead of deporting living mexicans, maybe they'll get the hint that if they come across the boarder illegally they'll come back to Mexico in a box! We had a really bad alien problem where I was stationed in Washing ton state. They were ALWAYS getting drunk and causing accidents, hitting pedestrians, running from the cops, one guy hit a 4yr old little girl when he was running from the cops for DUI and killed the little girl and he only got 5-6yrs in prison and deported. Only to come back 6mos later and do the same thing. These illegals need to be stopped! I say kill everyone of them we can find and send their bodies back to mexico!

Now what would the messiah say. He will probably pardon this barn rat so he can get his illegal vote.
