Law & Crime Breaking News: Castro Agrees to Plea Deal: Life Without Parole Plus 1,000 Years

by Wochit 1:04 mins

Ariel Castro, the Cleveland man accused of imprisoning and torturing three women for a decade, agreed to plead guilty and serve a life sentence ? sparing the city an agonizing trial and perhaps the women from reliving their nightmare on the witness stand. Former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden would not face the death penalty or be tortured and would have all the protections of the U.S. civilian court system if he were sent home, the chief U.S. prosecutor wrote in a letter to his Russian counterpart this week. A defense attorney for Bradley Manning says the soldier is a whistleblower who wanted the American public to know about the awful things he saw as an intelligence analyst in Iraq. Manning is charged with 21 offenses, the most serious aiding the enemy. That charge carries a possible sentence of up to life in prison.
