Kansas man, Jeser Cisneros-Hernandez, will not be facing prison time. He was charged one felony count of motor vehicle homicide after causing the deaths of four motorcyclists back in 2017.

Jeser Cisneros-Hernandez was shown empathy in the courtroom today. They conducted a pre-sentence investigation and found that he has no other criminal cases besides a self reported speeding ticket, and his danger to the community is very low. Alcohol, drugs, nor a cell phone were a factor in this accident. He expressed remorse and spoke to the court.

"Like my attorney stated, I feel very sad for what has happened and if I had the opportunity to go back 3 years, I would," said Cisneros-Hernandez.

On July 1st 2017 he fell asleep at the wheel, crossed the center line and hit four motorcyclists that were traveling in the opposite direction and they died at the scene. The crime is classified as a 3A felony. Due to the nature of his crime being an accident, and his clean criminal history, Jeser Cisneros-Hernandez will have 4 years of probation.

He will complete a victim impact panel and a mental health evaluation. He must complete a minimum of 400 hours community service which must include community presentations and defensive driving classes regarding the situation and how it's impacted him and the families. He will write a letter to the affected families expressing sincere remorse and empathy.

The Court will assess the cost he must pay and will transfer his case to Kansas where he is from. Family members cried with relief at the news of his freedom.
