Protests at lenient sentence for police colonel’s murder
Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito says he will appeal the 10-year sentence for UASD student Hector Eduardo Pichardo Hernandez, convicted of having fired the shot that killed police colonel Julian Suarez Cordero during unrest at the state university. The police colonel was unarmed at the time. The judges hearing the case at the Third Collegiate Court of the National District, Natividad Ramona Santos, Rafael Pacheco and Arlin Ventura discharged the other accused students (Wilson Daciel Javier Nicasio, Diogenes Isidro Gutierrez, Victor Alfonso Gonzalez Hernandez and Eddy Giovanny Bonilla Cabrera) for lack of evidence.
The murdered colonel’s son, Elvis Julian Sanchez, said the family had received dozens of threatening calls during the legal process urging them to drop the charges.
