Jessica Colotl Found Guilty Of Driving Without A License

Posted: Updated:

On Thursday, Kennesaw State University student Jessica Colotl was found guilty of driving without a license but not guilty of impeding traffic, according to CNN.

The offense might lead to a year's imprisonment, although the mandatory mimimum is 48 hours -- 45.5 of which, according to Colotl's lawyer Jerome Lee, she has already served. Colotl will return to court on Monday, when Lee plans on appealing the Cobb County jury's decision.

The 22-year-old undocumented Mexican student first made headlines in May, some weeks after a traffic misdemeanor led to her discovery as an undocumented immigrant. When it was disclosed that Colotl had been paying in-state tuition at Kennesaw State, the Georgia public university system re-evaluated their stance on undocumented students. After a series of rulings, the stated decided in last month to ban Illegal immigrants from attending a number of local college and universities.

Earlier this year, Colotl's pending deportation was delayed until she gets her degree from Kennesaw State.
