I would love to, however I donít have access to the jail. If they let me, I would gladly pay for a new rope and build a scaffold outside the courthouse so after he received a fair trial he could receive a fair hanging. I would gladly pull the trap door so Mr. Hoffman could meet his maker and face hin final judgement.

First, since when does a family tell a prosecutor what crime to charge someone with? The charges are not up to the family, so I wonder whether this piece of the story is even true. I think when this POS told the police where to find the bodies, he did so by striking a deal, which was to take the death penalty off of the table in return for his help.

Second, anyone who is convicted of any crime against a child (I think), is automatically removed from the general population when in prison. So whether he is on death row or out of general population, this POS is going to be in a single cell without a room-mate and will not suffer any consequences as you all are calling for.

Perhaps someone from the corrections community can tell us if this is true or not.

Sherrie, I'm glad my words were able to give you a little comfort in knowing that there is people supporting your family's decision. I've read where some believe that he'll be in isolation, where no one can get to him. Without any doubts in mind I can say, somehow, somewhere, someone (or two, three, four...) will get to him and justice will be served. As a mother of a daughter very close to Sarah's age and being close in age to the mother's who were murdered, I would be praising both families for their courage, support and love displayed during this inconceivable time. My family's thoughts and prayers will stay with both families for the rest our lives.

On a side note, I noticed there is another Sam posting here. I think it's time to change my name...:)

1st thank you Sam for making this real for others. I am stephaines sister and u all want to know y. It wasnt our wish, we did what we had to do to get our family members back. so for all of you that dont get it Iam so sorry but if you were in this position maybe you wouldnt worry so damn much about tax money. and yes we are comfortable with the decision. Death is to easy for him anyway. We dont want him to go 2 slep and not have to think about and deal with what he did - thats to easy. he will be gone forever and have to remember and deal which is what makes me feel better. Trust me my family waits for him to go to prison where he will not be protected and he will pay and suffer or prohaps be killed or messed with. And that is justice for us. All my family works and pays taxes so u know what we dont care. we will support his torture in prison. If you do understand I feel sorry for you. <quoted text>

I have only had to deal with the court system once and yes, the Prosecuter did contact me to see what charges I wanted to press. I agree that it seems odd, but it's our judicial system. I am sure this family had to do a lot of Praying to make this decision, however; it may have been their only recourse in knowing what the dirtbag did with the rest of the bodies.

They sometimes hold lesser charges in reserve in especially egregious cases to make sure there is no way the person completely escapes a sentence... They might do it this time since he's looking at life just for the murders. He'd be tried for the murders and they'd hold the kidnapping and sexual charges back in case he somehow gets off on the murders. If he's convicted on the murders and gets life with no parole they might not try him on the other charges. Or if he gets life with a chance of parole they could bring out the other charges and try to get consecutive sentencing to keep him jail.

Point is, if he just goes down for the murders they might not pull him out of general pop... we can all hope.

Interesting...thanks for your comments!

I know I had a problem with a family member, but after thinking over the problem, I asked them to just drop the charges; they told me that the charges (whether filed or not) are not up to me and that it was out of my hands once the procecutor had the case. I thought this would be the same for this instance (though this is WAY worse than anything I experienced).

I guess we can keep our fingers crossed that they only charge him with crimes that would keep him IN with the other prisoners and not locked up alone.

Yes it is ultimately up to the Prosecutor. I'm betting he had to take the death penalty off the table (with the family's agreement) in order to get the guy to give the location of the bodies.

This is not the first time I have heard of a prosecutor taking the victims family into consideration when deciding whether to go forward with the possibilty of the death penalty. Perhaps, this in some way is to protect the child from having to testify many times in the future during a lenghtly appeals process. Maybe this is insinuating that a plea deal is in progress. As strongly as the community feels that he should be put to death, lets support this family in their wishes. May peace be upon them.

there is no death penalty because it was part of a deal to find the bodies, also because the family wants him to suffer for the rest of his life

I agree. Death penalty is too easy. Let him rot in prison for the rest of his life knowing what he did, knowing he'll never be safe, knowing he can never rest easy. Fellow inmates don't take kindly to child rapists...

I am not buying his story. In one of the first press conferences, authorities made the comment that they were confident that they would find Sarah in his home and they were hoping they would find the other 3 as well. Now they are trying to say he hadn't targeted this family and wasn't stalking them!? Obviously during their investigation they recieved some sort of evidence that he had it out for Sarah or they would not have made that statement.

Also, if he was just robbing their house, why did he go out of his way to park all of the way in Gambier. Did he not think people would find it suspicious to see a man carrying items down a bike path!? Not to mention the fact that the nearest entrance to the bike path is pretty far away from where their home was located. Which leads me to believe he had a ride or some sort of help.

Here's the thing I don't understand...

It was supposed to be a botched robbery. The woman of the house worked at a Dairy Queen. How much money & other valuables could this family possibly have had? Why did he decide to kill the entire family, including the dog & keep the girl alive in his basement? Why wasn't she killed along with the family? I think this guy had other motives involving this girl...
