NewsTimes

The Oregon Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, denying state prosecutors' Petition to Review a May 3 Court of Appeals decision that threw out Garcia's highly publicized "hit-and-run" conviction of January 2014.

Both sides in the case agreed Garcia, a Forest Grove resident, didn't initially realize she'd accidentally driven over two young stepsisters — Anna Dieter-Eckerdt and Abigail Robinson, ages 6 and 11 — who were apparently lying or hiding in a huge leaf pile on Forest Grove's Main Street in October 2013.

But they never heard a word. Martinez spent a night in the downtown jail, then was out.

Police in Portland arrested Martinez...

The horrific attacks shocked the city and stoked fresh criticism of the pro-illegal immigrant policies.
