    Send him back to Mayheco and let them feed him stale tortillas in their prisons. Those places are no pinics.

    Does being in prison for 7 months automatically make you a US citizen….Who’s going to supervise him for a year after release, and where is he going to be supervised. At least he didn’t injure or kill anyone while OWI..
