Judge Adams came back with his sentence for Andrea Sneiderman this morning- she gets 5 years, with 11 months already served. (Thanks ‘Wild About Trial.’)
Today Andrea Sneiderman was convicted of 9 out of 13 charges including hindering the apprehension of a criminal and perjury. Sneiderman was initially charged with the murder of her husband, but those charges were dropped. Judge Adams will sentence her tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. She may serve anywhere from 1- 60 + years in prison.
Today the judge in the Brett Seacat trial sentenced him to 31 years and 3 months for the murder of his wife, Vashti. Seacat had a few things to say:
He blamed Vashti’s father for her ‘suicide.’
“You are going to hell for what you have done in this case.” (To the judge).
“I will step aside and let you have your day, you purchased it with your soul.” (To judge).
The judge responded:
“You live in some bizarre alternate reality.”
“You didn’t even show remorse that Vashti is no longer n this earth.”
“I don’t intend to show any mercy; you didn’t show Vashti any mercy.”
When the house was burning down around her body (set by Brett) he did manage to get the two young boys (and himself) out alive.
Ariel Castro was sentenced today for the kidnapping and rape (amongst other things) of Michelle Knight, Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry. He was given life without parole for the murder of a fetus – to which he responded: “I am not a murderer, I did not kill anybody.” The judge then confirmed that he pleaded guilty to that charge.
Michelle Knight was the only victim to address the court. She said “I have spent 11 years in hell. Your hell is just beginning.” The judge said Castro will exit the jail in a ‘nailed box or an ash can.’
