100 Days?

  • A Stroger Hospital executive who was driving home drunk from an office Christmas party in 2013 was sentenced to 100 days in prison Tuesday for striking and killing an aspiring chef who was biking home from work.

    During an emotional hearing, Robert Vais, the hospital's director of cost reimbursement, tearfully apologized for the death of Hector Avalos, 28, who had served five years in the Marines.
Time off for good behavior, anything he's been credited for and he's home after missing all the shoveling he might have had to do this winter. Must be nice to be connected.

Isn't that normally a 7 year sentence for reckless homicide ?

Wow 100 days for a vehicular homicide? Not to mention a DUI?

Why can't the victim's life be considered in the time off for good behavior? Hit a banger fleeing the justice arising from his actions [either civil authority or street justice], get a 5 minute time out. Hit a productive member of society, 20 years plus. Double it for vets.

He is a valuable pillar of the community, whose presence will be sorely missed during those 100 days. Not to mention he is a dependable contributor to local democrats and to the democrat party. The bicyclist was a nothing and will not be missed.

That is TOTALLY sad.

Justice? Not in Cook County. How come that was not on TV all over the place?

I'm guessing his executive job at Stroger is a political appointment position.
7 years if a drunk cop kills a gangbanger (even when the accident was the banger's fault), but 3 months for a politician. Outstanding.

This man killed someone while driving impaired! He should be rotting in jail for far longer than 100 days!! How much time have police officers received when found guilty for the same thing?! Disgusting!

If it was an off-duty police officer instead of some hospital big-shot, would they have gotten the same sentence?!

He has apologized, that should have been enough. It is terrible to throw a man of his stature in prison.

Let's get our priorities straight. Your headline for this post should have read "100 days...for killing a marine." That he killed an aspiring chef is a distant second to the fact that he killed a United States Marine! The deceased gave 5 years of his short life for our country. I wonder how many years, if any, Mr. Vals ever served in the military. Semper Fidelis. E.P.

Cops in the same position routinely get 6 years. Double standard.

The judges handler was called, strings were adjusted, how much in politcal contributions did this pos make? Look at daleys nephew what did he get 60 days? You can bet that these 2 are having food brought in, new mattresses, cell phone and internet not like prison population!

Then we have this judge today (who hold the strings?) making the decision to release that video tape where the family already took 5 million from the taxpayers for the shooting incident! then we have lisa madigan with a stack of papers ordering this tape released wonder are the attorneys contributing to her? Why else would you force a hand that would cause total mayhem, loss of property, loss of life? Will rahm like that goofy mayor in Baltimore give them "room to show anger" and order police to "stand down?" But then again with the anti-police sentiment police will most likely stand down, yes mayor the "ferguson effect" is real! even the FBI director said it,and mayor he has more knowledge than you will ever aspire to have!

Not a cop I got 6.5 months plus two years probation for a credit card beef had to pay back 3,000 and was unable to work for years. This asshole drives drunk kills a vet and gets 100 days because he is sorry? WTF. And more than likely still has his 6 figure gig with pension health care perks and benefits Geezus.

Speaking of Billy Cozzi, I just saw him on Tuesday of this week walking with a walker, I don't know if he hurt himself or is sick. What a shame, double punished for some Bullshit!

Here's your answer:
Do the same thing as a Chicago Police Officer and get 3 years behind bars. Who says justice isn't blind, this is after all "The Crooked City".

Every cop needs to ask for that judge if they get in trouble.

According to ballotpedia:
"Nicholas R. Ford is a judge of the Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois. He was appointed to the bench in December of 1997 and elected in 1998. His current term expires in 2016"

My Google-fu also shows he was endorsed by the Chicago Tribune in 1998.

Must have been quite the 402 conference.
