Burchett: Man accused in Pierce Corcoran's death "hasn't followed our laws for years"

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- An Oak Ridge man charged in the death of the son of Knoxville Fire Captain D.J. Corcoran had his bond reinstated on Friday.

Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo is facing charges of Driving without a License and Criminal Negligent Homicide in connection to the fatal accident that killed 22-year-old Pierce Corcoran.

Representative Tim Burchett, a friend of the Corcoran family, released a statement on the news.

"I understand the judge has to follow laws regarding bond, and her hands are tied, but this man hasn't followed our laws for years," he said.

"He's been here illegally, chose not to get a driver's license, car insurance or pay taxes. Let's hope ICE pics him up as soon as he steps foot out of jail," he continued.

The judge hearing the case had previously revoked Francisco-Eduardo's bond in an earlier court appearance. Defense attorneys argued keeping Francisco-Eduardo without bond is unconstitutional, while the State said there were other incidences where bond had been revoked.

The judge ordered Francisco-Eduardo to continue to be held with his bond revoked until Jan. 25. The judge reinstated his bond; however, he has no scheduled court dates, according to the sheriff's office.
