Defence attorney Jorge Torres spoke Wednesday after a Marion County judge entered a not guilty plea for his client, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala.
Prosecutors allege Orrego-Savala was driving the vehicle that crashed into Jackson and Monroe as the two men stood outside Monroe's auto early Sunday along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.

He faces up to 10 years in prison on that charge, which will be handled after in authorities resolve the Jackson case. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration.
