7years 4 months for involuntary manslaughter

7years is a lot more than I expected, for Marcos Costa. He was the driver of an auto transport that overheated his brakes on a steep winding mountain grade descending into Marcos Costa auto transport driver in fatal la canada flintridge crashLa Canada Calif. At the bottom of the grade his inability to stop caused a horrible double fatal accident. When the jury rejected murder and only convicted on the involuntary manslaughter I expected he would be free soon. I didn’t expect his sentence to be more than a year or two. It is really sad for both families. He has vowed never to touch a truck again. I don’t think I could go back to driving after a horrific experience like that either.
