I think it's terribly sad that this young man did the crime for which he has been justly convicted. We need to look upon him with pity and know that he will soon begin a lifelong prison term for something it took him ten minutes to do, according to testimony (A Letkemann said the whole thing took about 10 minutes but it felt like longer). This is a prime example of how teenagers are just incapable of thinking ideas through. Had he known this would be the outcome, would he have decided to go through with it? We will never know. I just feel sorry for him and for his family. That does not diminish how sorry I am for the victim in this case. Daniel Sorensen, no matter how depraved he was and how inapporpriate his friendships with all these teenaged boys, did not deserve to die, and certainly the way he was killed and what they did to him afterward was brutal. I sympathize with the Sorensen family but also with the Orlewiczes and the Letkemanns. It must be horrible knowing how their sons will have to live for the next several years. I do hope they are segregated from the rest of the prisoners, they would surely be brutalized and I would hope the Sorensens do not wish that on them, even though the boys are convicted of murdering their son. I don't know how Jean Pierre Orlewicz could think of such a terriblw thing to do, but he will have a long time to think about it and I hope there is still a way for his life to be productive and come to something positive. It would be a shame to waste his potential. By the same token, it it my hope that Alex Letkemann will get himself a degree in something he in interested in so that he will have a shot at making a life for himself when he is released. Let the second half of his adult life be spent doing something positive in this world. This is a rambling blog but it is full of what I believe to be true.

What Rob wrote was absolutely correct and beautiful. Finally a decent human being. Unfortunately JP's Rage towards Dan got the better of him. As a Registered Sex Offender, a Bully aka BOSS and possible as said before "Inappropriate Friendships". Perhaps JP attorneys has pull through the APPEAL and have his life turned around! Good Luck, JP...are prayers are with you!
