From WSAZ.com

"However, as part of the plea agreement, Lester can never be tried in either of those murders.

Lester faces 10 to 40 years in prison, but he could get out in half the time for good behavior. The state is recommending a 30-year sentence."

This A-hole is only being tried for one of the three murders and got a plea deal where he will only be in jail for 5-20 years. This guy could get out in 5 years??? I love our justice system. It took longer than that to get him into jail in the first place after he committed the murders due to the system already!

This is BS

Get over it. The people he (allegedly) hurt were drug dealers themselves so who really gives a flying crap? 5 to 10 years with good behavior is alright in my books. Maybe he will be rehabiliated by then.

Shawn Lester was rail roaded by the dirty politicians of this city. They had nothing on him but leverage with unrelated charges. He would have been found not guilty in trial.

I'm over it, and I'm totally sure he will be rehabilitated in 5-10 years with our awesome rehab services in our overcrowded prison system here in WV. Once he eventually does make it to the pen, he probably still won't receive any type of "rehabilitation" for his murdering, drug dealing, conniving tendencies. Plus if they give him credit for time served, he'll be out next week.

As part of their "agreement" with the police, in exchange for their statements against Lester, none of the Shaffer's will be charged with anything related to the case.

I wonder if Bubba makes Shawn have sex with him in the mornings or evenings? Maybe bubba is a morning person, you never know. Either way Shawn will have just have to adjust.

Again, just remember that every dollar that you earn on every paycheck you can rest assured that you are paying for it.

I understand completely what you're saying and i to would love to see him get the chair. As a matter of fact i would like for the same thing happen to him as what happened to that guy in the "Green Mile" you know where Percy didn't soak the sponge and the man literally fried to death. Not just electrocuted " BUT FRIED"

Yes that would be just punishment for Shawn, but since it won't happpen then getting pumped up the rear by BUBBA and a few dozen of his friends for 50 years will have to do.

Let's compare my morning to Shawn Lesters.

I awoke around 7:00 and with my girlfriend all snuggled beside me. I woke her up and hit it once and fell back to sleep for about a half an hour. Awoke again and hit it once more before the two of us showered and headed out to Bob Evans for a nice breakfast. After breakfast we stopped at wal-mart to do a little shopping and then back to the house for a little Sports Center update.

Now here's Shawns morning

The prison guard woke him and his celly up at 6:00 to get ready for the day. Bubba "his celly" hit it once maybe twice before Shawn even took his morning pee. The cell door then opened and the two of them went to the cafeteria for some oatmeal and kool-aid. Afterwards Bubba traded Shawn off to another cellmate for the day for a pack of smokes and a candy bar. The new guy and some of his friends decided to pull a train on Shawn until lunch.

Let's hope it's that way for that evil SOB for the rest of his miserable life!

What is the legal system going to do
to the other guy who was w/ him?

Actually there were 2 men w/ him but
one died a few yrs ago.

I have not heard if the one still living
would be charged as well.

He will not be charged with anything because of the statement he gave on Lester. He got immunity and according to the newspaper today, his mother should have been charged with murder for hire at her own admission but the city of charleston had it so bad for Lester that she was given immunity too. IF the CPD theory was correct an I was a victims family member I would be PI$$ED that out of all the people that were supposedly involved only 1 is being held accountable because of all the deals that were made just to get Lester and in the end they still only got him for 1 and didn't really even get him for that one. He ended up accepting a deal that was better for him in the long run.

And the only one being held accountable
is getting off very easy.

It's a shame he was cut a deal and is
only having to pay for 1 murder when
3 ppl were killed.

I understand it was over drugs but
those ppl didn't deserve to be killed
by another person who was involved
in drugs.

I wonder if there's any connection with this case and the Melanie Matheny girl that disappeared back in 06. She is from Belle and was staying in Campbells [email protected] the time.

Well Connie considering the fact that he didn't do this I personally don't think he will fry. Especially since they have NO evidence that he did it other than a bunch a felon's false testimonies.
He didn't do this???? What the heck ever! He DID do this and he needs to be buried under the jail!

Rumors are the fella on the west side of Charleston was shot as a decoy - same with the guy at the Exxon above Glasgow. That it was really the Patton girl who was the "planned victim of murder over her boyfriend - the Walker guy robbing Shawn of drugs that a Mexican guy (never searched down either)fronted him with.

The Meadows guy who got killed at Glasgow - was at one time dealing/doing drugs, etc.- but word was once he went in service and came out, he cleaned up.

So think 3 people died just to kill one - that Shawn could be a serial killer indeed to not even have personal reason to end the lives of two others not really targeted ooooo - gives me the willies.

Though not convicted of the others, it's best he never see the light of day - he will kill again if he's mental, psychotic and a serial killer. UGH

Does anyone know if Lester was associated with Melanie Metheny or the Jarrett Davis guy she was [email protected] the time of her disappearance? Or if Lester knew Jason Holstein AKA Alf? I don't believe the 3 victims in the sniper shootings are the only ones and my heart goes out to their families. He does deserve to b where he's at but I cringe everytime i thi nk the ones who were involved in the drug scam and cover up are walking free.

I'm a CO and see Lester everyday funny thing is guy claims he's innocent of the killings says he took the wrap for someone else says he was there but didn't shoot he was the driver so if this is all true then there's a killer walking the streets who knows when he may strike again
