What an idiot. A guilty idiot at that. I wonder if he regrets taking the stand despite his attorney's advice..??
And Roxane, his wife is just as bad. She says she's try to be a good mother, but what is she teaching her kids? That accepting lies in the face of danger by pretending it doesnt' exist is how you deal with life? I have no doubt she loves him, but that is not the point here. Love is blind in the face of Roxane Johnson-Sterling. Her husband is a monster, he wanted to kill his own son! His unborn son, and she wants this man to be around so her son can have his daddy?

HE'S INNOCENT!!! I've known him for half of his life as well as his wife and her family. Since when does an already convicted felons word become gold? And as for the bit** that he was seeing, she's just that, a bitter bit** that has ruined 4 lives because she found out that she wasn't anything more than a piece of a**. If he's such a killer, why was she seeing him? What does that say about her? And as for all you people that have so much to say, learn the REAL FACTS before you open your mouths, not just what you see on TV. An all white jury facing a Black man in a court room will come up with a conviction every time.

Not takings sides on guilty or not guilty. I was not involved nor do I know any one involved so how can I really, know. But keep your stupid little "race card" to yourself and I guess if you really don't like it you can always riot and burn down your own neighborhood so my tax dollars can rebuild it and as a bonus offer ***** A FREE BOX OF TISSUES TO WIPE YOUR EYES!**** BOO HOO HOO. Have a pleasent day.

Your comments amaze me. You have not only made this a racial issue, but you have also deflected the blame to the woman he was dating. Not only am a Black man, but I would have convicted him as well. I find it amazing that your premise behind his innocence is that you have known him for years. Well, if that is the case, either you should have known he was cheating or you are also a cheater (birds of a feather flock together). Albert Sterling is a wannabe mack that seeming got a good piece from a good woman and decided that he wanted to totally end his wife and baby's life to chase the dream. Not only is he a coward, but he will get his due in prison, as he will become someone else's woman. That way, he will see what it feels like. In a strange way, I totally respect his wife, as she did a good job of preventing him from getting life in prison. Now that she know that he will have to serve 15 years and not 40 to see outside a prison again, I think she should be applauded. She played the role of committed wife very well. However, I would say that it was all for sympathy. She is mad, but she is forgiving.

I think your comment was totally inappropriate. I am Black and I feel that race was not an issue. However, I take issue with your obvious ludicrous thought that only you would have to use your tax dollars to rebuild the neighborhood. Let's not fight his ignorance with your unkind words. The time has past that we burn down neighborhoods. In fact, if you go back through history, there was a principle behind riots, mostly from a national perspective. Albert Sterling is the village idiot that every Black Woman and Man is absolutely relieved that he got his due. This is not a Black or White or Hispanic or other ethnic issue. This is about the sanctity of marriage and the fact that is individual sold out on the most sacred of God's gifts - a wife and child. Take care.

What every one need to realize is that children are involved. We need to pray for the husband and the wife as their is confusion in the midst of this family on both sides. We get online and post all of this stuff and do not take in to consideration of the kids. I do not agree with this mans decision making and we will never know the whole story. The bottom line at this point is that you have more african american boys without a father lets focus on that. Men (black, white, yellow,) have been cheating on their wives for years and we as women choose how we are going to deal with it. Some stay some leave. Who cares about the mistress thats all she was is a mistress she is really not the issue at hand here. Stop always pulling the race card it is not always a racial issue.

This is crazy for friend till the end to say what he has said,. They have evidence against him. Yes Thompson may have a past but not for murder.Everybody doesnt have that in them to kill. I know I dont. he should have left her if he was that unhappy. If he didnt hire Thompson , he would have hired someone else to do it. He just so happen to approach someone that had a conscience and some morals or this could have had a different ednding and the mistress had nothing to do with this. She is a victim as well. They already proved that Sterling was a pretty good lier even living a double life. I didnt believe the insurance scam not one bit.His wife owed more than the car than what it was worth so that wouldnt have worked anyway he giot his just reward.

I agree with you Roxanne is off the chain....She actually stayed on her husband side. The truth may hurt but she is literally stupid....I don't mean any disrespect but she is hopefully together now. First your husband cheats, attempts to kill you and your unborn baby, and then you stand up with him in court. He played her dumb because that is how she appeared to be. Just sad!!!!!
