nearing the end of a local saga

UPDATE 3/11/2006: The three defendants each get six years in prison

. . .

Four years after their gang rape of an unconscious 16-year old, defendants Greg Haidl and his two friends will be sentenced tomorrow. The rapists' first trial ended in a mistrial, the second trial ended in a conviction. What led to the conviction? Probably the fact that the rape was videotaped and the jurors were forced to watch the horrible footage.

Here's Haidl jury foreman Robbie Ruiz:

“The tape proved they were guilty. If you show that video on the news, everybody’s view would be that these guys should hang. People would go crazy. You know what I mean? It was primal. It looked like savages having their way with a piece of meat.”

We'll see what their sentences are tomorrow.

Have fun in prison Mr. Haidl. Daddy can't save you now.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
