Deportation case dismissed against woman who ran over Forest Grove girls
PORTLAND, Ore . - The deportation case against Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros has been dismissed a spokesman at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.
Garcia-Cisneros was found guilty in January of failing to render aid after running over and killing two Forest Grove girls last fall.
Abigail Robinson, 11, and her 6-year-old sister Anna Deiter-Eckerdt were playing in a pile of leaves Oct. 20 when Garcia-Cisneros hit them.
Garcia-Cisneros told the jury it was dark and she was listening to music in the car when it happened.
"I heard a bump," she said at the time. "I steered to the left to avoid my back tire from hitting the same bump."
ICE spokesman Andrew S. Munoz said on Tuesday morning that Garcia-Cisneros was released from custody last Thursday after a judge dismissed her case.
The girls' mother, Susan Dieter-Robinson sent the following statement to KATU Tuesday afternoon:
"Today is like any other day without our girls. Through our grief we have chosen to love and celebrate the joy that they have brought into our lives and the lives of so many others. We don't want Anna and Abigail's lives to be remember by the tragedy but rather by the love story they are all teaching us to live."
