34-year old Jamaican Truck driver, Tyrone Williams, who lives in New York was found quilty of transporting illegal immigrants.

79 illegal immigrants were crammed into his trailer at the Mexican border in order to take them to Houston.

17 people died inside the truck due to dehydration, suffocation and overheating. Two other immigrants died later.

Tyrone Williams faces up to life in prison.
