As long as he never gets to see the light of day on this side of the wall I will be happy. He put my family and many others through so much pain.

People vs colegrove, filed Oct 2011. del lost his appeal. The judgement is affirmed. On all counts his attorney failed to get his sentence reduced or cleared. And you know why? Because he is the rapist/molestor they proved he was in the first trial.

I hope his family stops defending him now. they appear so ignorant when they attempt to defend a molestor who raped his step daughter and his own sister. Justice is good.

A refresher why he is in prison until 2063:

November 13, 2009
District Attorney Bob Lee announced today that Del Eddy Colegrove age 42, of Los Gatos, was sentenced to 64 years in prison following a two-week jury trial before Judge Paul Marigonda, the sentencing judge. Mr. Colegrove committed multiple forcible sex acts against his 16 year- old step- daughter. Mr. Colegrove could have received a sentence as low as 24 years, or as high as 128 years.
The 64 year sentence was requested by the District Attorney's Office. He will not be eligible for parole until 2063 .
Many family members attended and several spoke at the sentencing. Prominent among them was the defendant's younger sister. Speaking on behalf of the victim the sister, now an adult with children of her own, expressed the shame and anger she felt at the fact that the defendant, who had repeatedly molested her when they were teenagers, had gone on to rape another family member. The victim's mother and maternal grandmother also spoke on behalf of the victim.
The victim was not present. She chose to attend school rather than see the defendant again.
The victim's family expressed heartfelt gratitude to Judge Marigonda, Inspector Aaron Morse of the District Attorney's Office, Detective Krissi Durant of the Sheriff's Office, and Victim Advocates Sylvia Nieto and Michelle Cardinale of the District Attorney's Office.
The defendant's mother asked for clemency for her son. Following the passing of sentence by Judge Marigonda, she made obscene gestures at the victim's family. The defendant had made the same gesture to the court after the jury returned its verdicts.
