Sentence For Teenage "Drag Race Killers" Woefully Inadequate

After all, they killed three innocent members of a family who were minding their own business. Certainly there should have been more than 90 days in jail time included in the sentence.

Christopher Yovino, 18, and Brett Taylor, 19, the two convicted of manslaughter in the racing deaths last year of the Houston mother and her two children [Mayra Castillo Torres, 37, Christopher Nuño, 14, and 6-year-old Katia Nuño], could have been sentenced to 20 years in prison. Jurors gave them probation.

After Nuño's brother gave a victim impact statement in court, saying the teens never apologized for their actions, State District Judge Denise Bradley sentenced both boys to 90 days in jail as a condition of probation.

"These youths do not understand the magnitude of what they did, and have never shown a shred of remorse," the widower's brother, Oscar Nuño, said in court. "Not one apology or attempt of an apology has ever been extended to my brother or our family since the accident. "Not that we would ever accept such an apology, but it is the human thing to do."

Bradley agreed with Nuño that the teens had not taken responsibility for their actions.

These boys annihilated a family -- a mother and two kids are dead because they decided to make the streets of Harris County into their own personal race track. Surely the judge ought to have given them a significantly harsher sentence than she did -- especially given her own in court assessment of their lack of remorse for their actions.

Sadly, the judge in this case didn't have much choice after the jury made its decision. She remedied the situation by imposing the jail sentence, so that the two punks involved will at least spend some time locked up. But the reality is that they deserve to be in the general population at one of the fine facilities operated by the Texas Department of Corrections.
