I don't know the full aspect of this case and the offenses committed by this guys.. Though

I sometimes really wonder how the courts sentence someone... This guy yes kidnapped and raped a girl and deserves to pay... A life sentence though?

There are people out there that kill people and only get 10 years... Sometimes I feel like they sentence a person who rapes someone much harsher than a murderer... I feel like it should be the other way around..

I believe the guy should get punished but, WOW... LIFE... My GOD. This country is going straight to HELL.
The way things are going, the only ones that are free in this country are the correctional officers and even they are sometimes criminals. UNBELIEVEABLE.

It shouldn't be the other way around you idiot - they should ALL be locked up for life, that's the only injustice. In fact, they should be shot dead on the spot and the taxpayers should be spared from paying to keep these scum alive.

To all of you people that think LIFE is too long of a sentence,just think of the girl being your daughter.
She has to live with that torture for LIFE. SO WHY SHOULDN'T HE.I hope he gets raped everyday in prison.

Well at least he is finally on his way to prison. I don't think that a life sentence is too harsh. I'd rather have him dead. That girl is going to have to live with what he did to her for the rest of her life. The emotional scarring never goes away. The nightmares are forever as well.

Some people do get less of a sentence for killing someone. That is messed up. If one kills someone other than by accident (excluding drunk drivers, those are not accidents) Then they should not be given second chances or even a third for many.

There is no understanding the criminal justice system because there is no justice. Prisons today are struggling to afford keeping prisoners in there. Many are getting out and committing even more heinous crimes.

The reason he's going away to prison for life is because the girl's family might murder him if he's ever released. This way you've got only 1 crime instead of 2.

Are you kidding me??? Of course he deserves a life sentence... This poor girl has to live with this horrible memory for the rest of her life, so why shouldn't he?? Obviously both rape and murder are horrible crimes that invade our streets daily. But in my own personal opinion, rape is a worse crime by far. At least if you're murdered you don't have to live with the memory of it like this girl will.

The liberals are back at it. "Awwe, why did this man get life? He made a mistake. His momma was a drug addict. His daddy abandoned him when he was a toddler. All he needs is a warm hug and some cookies."

Unbelievable. The guy needs to be shot. If it were MY daughter he did that to, that guy would WANT life in prison because I'd be looking for him when he got out.

There is no justice in this country. The lunatics have taken over the asylum and it's every man for himself.

This guy gets life in prison and there are many people who have done a lot worse and they get a shorter sentence with possible parole, even some have gotten home detention with a braclet. Our Court system sucks and should get uniformed with every criminal charge. I don't condone what this guy did. But we have to start giving our elected officials and judges an ear full on getting them to uniform sentences and not sway from it. If it was woman doing the crime, would she get a shorter sentence.THINK ABOUT IT.

funny, but I am not a correction officer and I am free and have always been. For that matter I don't know anyone who has been to prison, the common denominator with us, we don't commit crimes. Interesting concept huh?

Doesn't deserve life, are you crazy? This guy robbed a gas station at gunpoint beat the clerk and then shot a Margate cop a few years back and he got off on that charge because of retarded jurors. Now he pays the price for his heinous crimes!!! Lock his thug azz up!

are you for real? you think being murdered is better, because at lease you don't have the memory of being raped? how bold of you to just decide when life is worth it for others. something tells me that those who are being raped are hoping they survive. i'm not minimizing rape whatsoever, but i think most are thankful to still have their life.
