Ariel Castro has accepted a plea deal in the kidnapping, imprisonment and rapes of three Ohio girls.
Details below the squiggle:
Under the deal Castro avoids the death penalty in exchange for a sentence of life without parole plus 1,000 years.
Personally I think this is a good deal as I cannot see the prosecutors looking forward to having to put the girls on the stand and cause more mental trauma by testifying.
Plus you know Castro is not going to have an easy time inside. I am reminded of the ultimate fate of Jeffrey Dahmer and I suspect that life plus a thousand is going to be a rather short time indeed.
