Driver Accused of Killing KFOR Sports Director Pleads Guilty

By Kevin Eck 

Gustavo Gutierrez, the man accused of killing KFOR sports director Bob Barry, Jr., has plead guilty.

The Oklahoma City NBC affiliate reports Gutierrez will serve 10 years for cocaine possession and five years for causing a crash without a valid driver’s license resulting in a fatality. Both sentences will run concurrently.

Barry, who was on his scooter, died after he was thrown more than 20 feet after running into Gutierrez, who made an illegal u-turn.


In his plea paperwork, the judge read what Gutierrez had written, admitting he was driving the car that caused a crash, resulting in the death of BBJ.

He did not make any statement in court and ignored our questions, uttering only an “I’m sorry” as sheriff’s deputies escorted him out of court.

The judge told Gutierrez deportation is a possibility as a result of his plea.
