On Thursday, Uriel Flores, 18, was offered a plea deal by the Mecklenburg County (NC) District Attorney's Office, which would have required the illegal alien to plead guilty to two counts of misdemeanor death by vehicle, and serve 60 days in jail.

Flores was arrested on Sept. 18, after reportedly causing a crash on Sharon Road in Charlotte, which left 19-year-old Shanquise Bush and her 3-year-old son, Jayden dead.

The pick up truck driven by Flores crossed into Bush's lane, causing her to swerve. She then crashed her Mercury Sable into a telephone pole, according to witnesses.

Flores quickly fled the scene at a high rate of speed.

Bush was pronounced dead on the scene, while her son died a few days later at the Carolina's Medical Center from massive head trauma.

Two others, including Bush's 18-month-old daughter were injured in the crash.

Flores, who rejected the plea deal, will now be tried on two counts of involuntary manslaughter, assault with a deadly weapon, three counts of inflicting serious injury, and felony hit-and-run.

If found guilty, he could be sentenced to more than eight years in prison.

However, the Mexican national's sister, says that her brother should not face any charges and simply be let go...

Adilene Flores told WBTV:

There's no one to blame in this, no one to blame. It's an accident. And I'm sorry. I'm so sorry for their loss."

"I have a petition going on right now to free my brother, for ICE to lift this hold that they have on him," the defendant's sister continued.

Flores is currently being held at the Mecklenburg County Jail on an immigration detainer.
