A California man has pleaded guilty to fatally beating and stomping his girlfriend's 6-year-old son, then taking the body to Arizona where it was buried and entombed in concrete.
Prosecutors say 37-year-old Samuel Corona pleaded guilty Friday to murder and torture for the 2007 death of Oscar Jimenez Jr.
As part of a plea deal, Corona is expected to be sentenced to life in prison without parole, escaping a possible death sentence if he had gone to trial.
The death penalty in California is a joke. Here's what happens to people sentenced to death:
They get special prison cells and protection. They don't have to worry about their own needs at all. Everything is taken care of for them - they get their shelter, a bed, clothing, meals, health care, and exercise. Oh, and groupies, if they want them. Then they die of old age.
Heck, as long as I could read what I wanted, which death row inmates can, I could be very happy with that life. Some murderers actually prefer a death sentence rather than LWOPP, because in California, it has the same end result, but death row inmates have it better.
It has been years since the last rare execution took place, and I don't expect there will be another one any time soon, if ever. But the ones who had been most recently executed had been on death row for something like 20-30 years. And they simply get put to sleep, never to wake up again, and yet people protest outside of the prison claiming that this is "cruel and unusual." The peole who wrote and adopted those words into the Constitution would laugh those protesters out of town.
I know there are great people out there who have good reasons for opposing the death penalty. That's fine. I can respect that. I disagree, though.
Investigators say Corona killed the boy inside the couple's San Jose home, then drove with the child's mother, Kathryn Jimenez, to Phoenix and buried the body.
A judge previously ruled that Kathryn Jimenez also was a victim of Corona's violence and sentenced her to one year in jail for endangering her son.
So when her boyfriend brutally murdered her son, rather than calling the cops, she went with her boyfriend! And she gets only one year in jail for putting her son under this monster’s foot. Please tell me her uterus has been removed. She was a victim of his violence? That is all the more reason why she should have done something to protect her son.
Her uterus should be used to block Corona’s air passage.
