The Colorado Court of Appeals has upheld the convictions of a Guatemalan man who was sentenced to 60 years in prison for causing a crash that killed three people, including a boy, inside an ice cream shop in Aurora.
The Denver Post reports the court on Thursday reaffirmed the 19 convictions against Francis Hernandez in the September 2008 deaths of 3-year-old Marten Kudlis, 49-year-old Patricia Guntharp and 51-year-old Debra Serecky.
Prosecutors say Hernandez was driving an SUV at twice the speed limit - more than 80 mph - when it crashed into a pickup truck, which in turn crashed into an ice cream store in the east Denver suburb.
Hernandez will not be eligible for parole until May 2038.
