Illegal Immigrant Gets Reduced Charges

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – A district court judge has accepted a misdemeanor plea from an illegal immigrant from Guatemala that would allow the man to seek amnesty.

The man was facing felony charges of felony criminal impersonation and traffic violations, but he was allowed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct on Monday. A felony conviction would bar amnesty.

According to the Aspen Daily News, Esbilmer Perez-Ruano is seeking amnesty after three of his relatives were shot and killed in Guatemala, possibly by drug gangs.

The district attorney’s office would not comment on the plea.
