The illegal immigrant accused of driving drunk and killing a Houston police officer pleaded guilty. Now it's up to a jury to decide his punishment. Johoan Rodriguez plowed through a police roadblock and killed Officer Kevin Will. Will was interviewing an accident witness at the time. He managed to shove that witness to safety before being hit. Rodriguez's blood alcohol was three times the legal limit. He also had cocaine in the car. He had been deported twice before and the Mexican national was in the country illegally. He apologized in court for his actions last May. Now he could get between five years and life. The punishment phase of the trial is expected to last all week.
