First Dominican to be convicted with a sentence of more than 30 years
Santo Domingo.- The National District 2nd Appellate Court on Thursday upheld the 35-year conviction for terrorism against Frankeli Holguin Medina, who set fire to a Metro train full of passengers.
Under appeal the court ruled that the indictment was well founded and the facts and the evidence were correctly evaluated.
Last March National District Panel Court judge Pilar Rufino sentenced Holguin to 35 years in prison on a conviction of terrorism and attempted murder, for setting fire to a car of Metro line 2.
Holguin, who is serving time at San Pedro prison, became the first Dominican to be convicted with a sentence of more than 30 years.
