My prediction: Ignacio Segura (the drunk driver who killed an innocent man) will kill again.
How do I know this?
1) He is free to drive again, even though he was driving with a suspended license.
2) He is free to drive again, even though he killed an innocent man.
3) It is very common for offenders to go out and commit the same crime over and over, that's a fact.
What if Ignacio Segura kills your family member next? Are you mad? I'm mad as hell!
Judge Sandra McLean's job and duty is to protect citizens! This is absolute insanity!
Intoxicated, unlicensed motorist gets jail, probation in fatal crash

OROVILLE -- To the dismay of the victim's family, an intoxicated and unlicensed driver who caused the death of an Oroville motorist was granted probation in court Thursday.
Ignacio David Segura, 22, of Oroville, who also drew 175 days in jail, had pleaded no contest to a charge of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
Segura reportedly was driving with an alcohol level just slightly above the .08 percent legal limit when his pickup collided head-on with another truck driven by Marc Roy Patterson, 59, also of Oroville.
Patterson was pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol concluded the defendant was driving eastbound on Lower Wyandotte Road March 10, 2007, shortly before midnight when he crossed the center divider into the on-coming path of the victim's pickup just east of Drescher Tract Road in Oroville.
At Segura's Butte County Superior Court sentencing Thursday, three members of the victim's family spoke of their loss and joined the prosecutor in urging the intoxicated motorist be sent to prison.
Deputy district attorney Michael Candela pointed out Segura was driving with a suspended license and allegedly had told different stories to police about how much beer he had consumed and where that night.
A pre-sentence probation report to the court that recommended a 120-day jail term for Segura, noted it was the Oroville man's first criminal conviction of any kind.
Judge Sandra McLean sentenced Segura Thursday to five years probation, but increased his jail term to 175 days. Calling the defendant "the poster child" for laws against drinking and driving, the judge said she found it significant Segura's first accident of any kind resulted in "the worst that could possibly happen."
