I get so confused reading here ........ sometimes I think I'm reading at RU instead of SM. When I see posts that tell me Joran is the big winner, that Joran will win his appeal and Stephany will have no justice, I close my eyes and reopen them hoping I did not just read that at SM.  The powers that be save Joran, and afford Joran perks, and Joran gets special treatment by the Dutch embassy.  Good grief - is someone pro-Joran, fallen under his spell, playing a bad joke, or trying to set themselves  up with the weird hope of saying "I told you so" later?

Joran is finally in prison, in a particularly harsh prison in Peru, where he cannot do to any more young women and their families what he did to NAH and SR. He was sentenced to 28 years which is a stiff sentence by Peruvian standards. He's been approved for extradition to the USA at some point in the future where he will face charges bearing another possible 25 years.

Natalee's and Stephany's families seem satisfied with this, and trusting in the legal process If they are happy, then so am I.  Afterall, I'm here to support Natalee's and Stephany's loved ones, and not be a cheerleader for Joran.

You are confused?  I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone.

The Charges

Joran was a winner when he received a 28 year sentence from the Peruvian justice System ... a 28 year sentence which translates into a 9 year sentence rather than a life sentence for a murder beyond brutal?.

Jamcakes?  It makes sense that the Flores family does not believe that justice was served for Stephany?

Date set for van der Sloot murder trial
Published: 11/25/2011 9:44 am
Updated: 11/26/2011 8:25 am


<snipped>

In September, the victim's family asked a three-judge panel for a more stringent charge akin to aggravated murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, but the panel of judges ruled on the prosecution's side.

Van der Sloot's defense attorney Luis Jimenez Navarro told CNN'S In Session this was a big win for his client. If Van der Sloot is found guilty and sentenced to the maximum penalty, under Peru's jail reduction credits, he may only serve a third of the time.

The Birmingham Extradition

Joran van der Sloot was a winner when the Peruvian Supreme Court ruled against an immediate extradition to Birmingham to face extortion charges beyond cruel against Beth Holloway?

Jamcakes?  It makes sense that Beth Holloway is not thrilled with the ruling that implies she will be almost 80 years old when she will be testifying against Joran in a Birmingham court room?

Joran Van Der Sloot Gets 28 Years in Peru, Now US Wants Him
Jan. 13, 2012


Joran van der Sloot was sentenced today to 28 years in a Peruvian prison for strangling a woman there, and American officials are now expected to bring him to Alabama to face charges in connection with the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway.

The attorney for Holloway's mother, John Q. Kelly, said after today's sentencing that he hopes van der Sloot will be extradited to the U.S. within "a couple of months."

Van der Sloot is charged with extorting $25,000 from Holloway's grieving mother Beth Holloway in exchange for information about the location of Natalee's body. After receving the money, van der Sloot admitted lying about where the girl's body was buried.

"We anticipate that U.S. authorities will move quickly to bring him to Alabama to face pending federal charges and to answer for his past conduct in Aruba," Kelly had said prior to the sentencing.

The U.S. District Attorney in Birmingham, where the case against van der Sloot will be prosecuted, did not immediately return calls for comment. They had previously told ABC News that they had made arrangements with Interpol to have van der Sloot extradited to the U.S.

Any sentence he might receive in the U.S. would be served in conjunction with the 28 years he was sentenced in Peru, Kelly said.

I don't think that the 28 year sentence will automatically turn into a 9 year sentence.
There is a small possibility that MAY be the case.  As I recall Joran never thought he
would receive the harsh sentence of 28 years. and there is no gurantee that he will
finish his sentence in 9 years.  That is just wishful thinking on the part of Joran and
his attorney

Another suicide in "paradise": 



I love the lime green paint scheme on the house.

Another suicide? Gee, living on the "Happy Island" can't be so grand if so many people keep offing themselves.  Or is this another Arubacide labeled as a "sui" instead of a "homi" just to protect the statistics/reputation of the Happy Island?

Cause of death: Lime Green Overdose

It never surprises me how lax Aruba is. One guy is a cop - the other dude looks like he is ready to weed whack the yard.

...and nobody is wearing any gloves. Aruba is just one notch above the Middle East where they just go fetch a dead guy off

the side of the road, by his legs, and toss him in the back of a Nissan. They did manage to cover this soul... so, maybe

they're improving?

Still interesting how we all interpret differently.

I have no confusion on this thread for 6 years Sad

However, as I read posts on several other threads where victims and their families (NOT POI'S) are trashed, criticized and straight out disrespected, I admit I have to check to see if I'm at RU

Woman's family wants speedy trial for van der Sloot
August 17, 2011


The family of a slain Peruvian woman is urging prosecutors to file their case against murder suspect Joran van der Sloot, warning that he may be released by December unless the case goes ahead.

"We are worried because Peruvian law says that if a suspect's trial doesn't begin within 18 months after his arrest, authorities are obligated to set the suspect free," Ricardo Flores, the dead woman's father, told CNN.

<snipped>

Investigators delivered their case file to prosecutors in June for a decision on charges. Ricardo Flores said the prosecutor in the case, Miriam Riveros Castellares, is "not moving with the speed that a case of this magnitude merits."

"We're asking that either the prosecutor file charges or that authorities remove her from this case and name somebody else," he said.

There was no immediate response to the family's concerns from the prosecutor's office.

Thanks TexasMom.

I guess it must be serious then, if she continued with Val during and after Joran's trial. And after meeting Anita and the doughboy brother.  Ugghhh, I cannot imagine having Anita as my boyfriend's mother (and potential MIL) claiming to be in a relationship with me. Gag me.   

I shudder at the thought of another generation of vdSlooty's running around.

Reminder

With Joran's guilty plea, the trial was over.  With that the possibility of proving with testimony and evidence that Joran was indeed guilty of the more serious crime that would have made a life sentence possible; was over too.

The guilty plea, with a maximum possible sentence of 30 years was acceptable to Ricardo Flores.  It would save his family more pain, stress, and worry from a lengthy trial and allow them to mourn and try to find peace after the loss of their beloved Stephany.

With the antics displayed by Joran in the few days in the courtroom that ended with the guilty plea and 28 years sentence, when I think of a full trial and what tricks may have been pulled out of the VDS hat; I think this was the best and least painful path for Justice for Stephany and her family. 

There were no guarantees of that possible life sentence, and there are no guarantees that 28 years will equate to 9 either.

Ricardo Flores 'Plea Agreement will give peace to my family'

I think this will allow my family can have some peace and dedicate ourselves to save and mourning, " said the girl's father killed in a press conference.

ONLY 48 HOURS

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

It's called acceptance of a situation when it is realized that despite giving it your all ... the outcome is what the outcome is.  IMO

Holding Out Hope

Flores, Holloway families await van der Sloot's trial
1/13/2012


<snipped>

According to Edwar Alvarez, the Flores family’s lawyer, with different charges Van der Sloot could receive life imprisonment.

"We aim to present evidence during the trial that will lead the prosecutor to change the classification of the crime, so that it becomes robbery followed by murder. This will not be 30 years in prison, but life imprisonment,” he told the Lima newspaper El Comercio.

The Damage is Done

Van der Sloot Gets 28 Years for Murder in Peru

After the conviction ...

<snipped>

Flores’s attorney took the microphone and demanded: “How can it be that a person that is in prison is more comfortable than if he were free? We will hold a press conference to present all the irregularities in this man’s imprisonment on Monday.”

“Mr. Flores wants peace for his family. The damage is done and it is beyond repair,” he continued.

'What I can do is hopefully share some life lessons and prevent this tragedy from happening to another family.  I stay focused on what I can do rather than what I cannot.  I cannot get justice for Natalee.'

Others Might Learn

Loving Natalee
A Mother's Testament of Hope and Faith
By Beth Holloway with Sunny Tillman


Page 189:    It's the proverbial, Biblical conflict between good and evil.  It's very, very hard to fight evil because it constantly changes form and you never know who your enemies are.  And evil is always two steps ahead. From the outset we never had a chance.  But we didn't know it.  I'm taking leave of the island, but not from the work yet to be done.
 
Page 200:  My child.  My beautiful daughter.  I can't save her.  It's too late.  Natalee is gone. And second to the great tragedy of losing her is if we fail to learn from what has happened.  I could be any parent in the world.  And no parent should ever go through this experience.  Natalee could be anyone's daughter.  And in these thoughts a new path is made clear.  There is something I can do.  Many people reached out to us, and I can now reach back to them.  It might be too late to save Natalee, but it's not too late to save others.  And it's time now to make good on my pledge. It's time now to make good on my pledge to stand before high-school and college students, law enforcement professionals, victims' rights groups, travelers of all ages, and anyone interested in personal safety to share Natalee's story and our hard lessons, so that others might learn from them.

Loving Natalee - Beth Holloway
Page 219: I have to make difficult choices every day.  I have to make a conscious decision every morning when I wake up not to be bitter, not to live in resentment and let anger control me.  It's not easy.  I ask God to help me.
