Illegal alien gets less than 20 years in prison for murdering man

An illegal alien has been sentenced to less than 20 years in federal prison for the murder of a man off the coast of Massachusetts.

Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, a 31-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was sentenced to 19 and a half years in prison this week for the murder of a man on a commercial scallop boat off Nantucket, Massachusetts, on 23 September 2018. .

The jail sentence comes after Vazquez pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon in March. Federal officials said Vazquez would be deported after serving his sentence.

In the fall of 2018, Vazquez was aboard the boat Captain Billy Haver – about 50 miles off Nantucket – when he used a hammer to attack one of six other crew members, leaving the man unconscious. .

Next, Vazquez attacked a second crew member, stabbing him repeatedly with a fishing knife. When a third crew member tried to intervene, Vazquez also hit him over the head with a hammer. When the captain of the boat tried to intervene, Vazquez attempted to stab him.

Two of the men were taken to a nearby hospital, where the man Vazquez stabbed was pronounced dead. Vazquez was arrested by the US Coast Guard.
