Melissa González Gagliuffi
The criminal lawyer Andy Carrión denied Judge Aissa Mendoza Retamozo, who justified that Melissa González Gagliuffi had not been imprisoned after being sentenced to effective prison in the first instance for running over and ending the life of Joseph Huashuayo and Cristián Buitrón, and leaving with fractures to Luis Miguel Vega Palacio.

According to the program ‘Al Estilo de Juliana’, the magistrate assured that Melissa González Gagliuffi had to wait for a judge to sign or revoke the sentence against her in a second instance, which is why she was not imprisoned.
Judge Aissa Mendoza revoked the sentence against a woman who killed two university students after running over them.
The judge would have expressed this position despite the fact that González Gagliuffi was entered into the rewards program of the Ministry of the Interior, since he fled so as not to remain in prison.

Regarding this comment, Carrión assured that when a judge issues a sentence in the first instance, it must be carried out immediately, so the person who caused the death of the young university students should have gone to prison at the time they ordered imprisonment against him.
“That is the reason why the Police and the Ministry of the Interior later offered a reward for his capture, precisely so that he would serve the sentence that was imposed on him in the first instance. It is not true that the rule is that a second instance is still expected in order to confirm or revoke this decision (…) ”, he clarified.

On the contrary, it specified that a decision revoking or signing the sentence should not be waited for the order to be enforced in the first instance.
He also explained that it was unnecessary to revoke the sentence for an electronic surveillance sentence against González Gagliuffi because this only applies when there are good social, labor and rooting conditions, which is not necessarily true in this case.
“And that is not what I say, the Penal Code expressly says so in the section precisely where it indicates what are the assumptions for the imposition of the sentence,” he added.
Judge Aissa Mendoza Retamozo also affirmed that in the second instance the sentence against Melissa González Gagliuffi increased to 6 years and 9 months in prison. For this reason, Andy Carrión commented that it is contradictory that she later benefited her by revoking her sentence.
Criminal lawyer Andy Carrión commented on the decision that revoked the sentence against Melisa González Gagliuffi.
“What the judge says is true, that in the second instance this sentence was increased and he was imposed 6 years and 9 months in prison. But he is contradictory because his sentence is increased, but at the same time he benefits from electronic surveillance, ”he said.
The judges who benefited her by acquitting her of the sentence in the second instance would have omitted that she was criminally punished for the crimes of aggravated manslaughter and serious culpable injuries.
This, for the specialist, shows that they have been very concessive with her. Proof of this is that they did not give him the maximum sentence of 8 years in prison for the commission of both crimes.
“In this case, the judges have been especially concessive in absorbing, let’s say, the crime of serious culpable injury with that of aggravated culpable homicide,” he commented.
