$23,000 for life taken in traffic accident

After a week-long trial, an Orange Walk man was sentenced today for Causing Death by Negligence. Sixty-three year old Orlando Ramirez appeared before Justice Herbert Lord in the Orange Walk Supreme Court where he heard his fate. Ramirez was found guilty on Tuesday of causing the death of fifty-two year old Justo Tzul in a traffic accident on June thirtieth 2011 in Concepcion in the Corozal District. Tzul was hit by a vehicle, driven at the time by Ramirez, while walking on the highway. He suffered severe head injuries which led to his demise. Ramirez was ordered to pay eight thousand dollars by December thirty-first 2013 and compensation to the family which he indicated would be paid by his insurance. Failing payment by the insurance, Ramirez will have to meet compensation of some fifteen thousand dollars.

    Crimes deserve punishment, not simply paying blood money.

    If the driver was at fault, he should be in prison for a while as a warning to all drivers.
