Finally! It's been making news over here too. Unusual case and even odder man.

Seriously, every time they mentioned this trial on the news, my first thought was: Is that still going on?

I was so relieved to see this creep found guilty.

From time to time I will watch a trial on CourtTV or TruTV as it is called now. Watched this one the first time around and was stunned when the jury could not come to a decision. Glad they came around this time. This guy should have been called on the carpet a long time ago for his reckless behavior with guns.

This man is wackadoo!

Yes he was found guilty. But he is a genius, and often the line between genius and insanity is thin. But in his case, I suspect he believed he could no wrong. 'He's a Rebel' as one of his famous songs says. BTW, I want one of his wigs....
Not sure if he's been sentenced yet though, Joy. Imagine the appeals etc. It'll be at least another five years before we get to a final conclusion.

Joy said...

Aled, yes he's been sentenced, and by the time all the appeals are tried, it might actually be 18!

Did you get a load of that mugshot? OMG He reminds me of a much older Micheal Jackson!!! compare the two mugshots, at the rate MJ is going with the skin bleaching it wont be long till he is officially white skinned.
missed you while at the house.

Joy, according to Court records, he'll be sentenced on May 29th. It could indeed be 18 years before he starts to serve!

Hey, Oxy! I never let facts interfere with a joke I'm making!

Oxy said...

Sorry Joy, I got it wrong again!

That's OK! You're out of practice bantering with me. You meant well. :-)
