Cleveland kidnapper avoids death penalty with plea deal
By Jeff Stacklin
In what might be the first act of mercy (huh?) shown to his victims, the man charged with kidnapping, raping and beating three Cleveland, Ohio, women agreed to a plea deal on Friday that would spare the women the agony of reliving the horrific details of their years in captivity during a jury trial.
Ariel Castro, 53, of Cleveland would serve life without parole, plus 1,000 years, and be spared the death penalty, according to the agreement.
Castro, unlike in prior hearings when he hung his head, repeatedly looked around the courtroom and responded to Cuyahoga Common Pleas Judge Michael Russo's questions in a loud voice.
Wondrfuk, another parasite #$%$ draining society. Hoepfully, he can be showed the same MERCY Jaffrey Dahmer was.
