that's the end of this guy... [Jan. 7th, 2011|12:40 pm]

Back in October I was in the jury pool for three cases, one child abuse (not picked), one stolen vehicle (excused for scheduling conflict), and one involving two child victims (excused with cause).  I've been keeping an eye on this last case, in October the wife was convicted of doing nothing to stop the husband and got 28 months, which is actually double the usual maximum considering she had no criminal history.

Today the husband pleaded guilty and will get 25 to life for each offense, avoiding his January trial where I suspect the jurors would have asked for summary execution after hearing testimony from two children. This has been one of those stories that I didn't want to read about it but find it necessary to know that the monster gets put in jail at the end.
