Raulito was my nephew, it very much saddens me that Clayton did not receive, what I would call justice. Both Raulito and Mariela were good, talented young people taken way too soon from this world. You must know though that Raul's mother is a forgiving woman and believes Clayton will receive justice, just not thru man but thru God. So...Raul still lives on in our hearts, minds and souls and his name is still mentioned on a regular basis when we all get together. Especially if someone makes a dumb joke, we always say Raulito would have thought it was funny.

yes i do agree that he got off a little easy. he didnt just get 60 days he has 10 years of probation and he has checged. i know him personally and have talked to him and he has a hard time with living with that. and dont say he got off easy cause he is white and has money becuase i know his family does not have a lot of money.

I pray for the family of the deceased & send my condolenses to them.
Those that have said bad things about the deceased are ignorant beyond belief.
The young man received a sentence of ten years probation probably due to his clean record & not because of his race.
This is why we use our rights to vote. We need stronger laws against drunk drivers so we need to contact our Congressman, Senators, or whoever makes our laws & tell them that enough is enough.
A good organization you can also contact is MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.
They too will give you advice on what to do.
If the young man does any type of crime down the road he will be sent away to do the time, so he has to keep his nose clean for ten years.
I too had someone taken from me by a drunk driver, but the man was hispanic as was my uncle & the county attorney just slapped the drunk drivers hand & let him walk with no punishment.
And this after it was his second intoxicated manslaughter that he had commited.
