Yeah he like her so much that he married me to get over her I guess. Hey cosme want to give back the bottle of Brandy I bought to prove to you Patricia did not hit John in the head with the bottle of brandy that set her off. I am sure John is very thrilled with the verdict and the fact you destroyed his entire life. But then again you may have saved my Life and for that I thank you and the Jury. I thank my friends tha posted for me, this has been a very hard 10 months for me. I'd never seen a violent side of John drunk, however his talk when he was made and emails were pretty not cool. I forgave him as christians do. I even forgive him for this but will never forget. Even in the bible god made a king out of a murderer but he also to a life in exchange. If only you could have known the John I use to know, the one who helped me lose weight, the one that would do anything for me, but he changed. I still think his mind is gone. His mother god rest her sole was a wonderful woman and she died of altimers last year manybe John has the starting of it. It's not an excuse for Killing Patricia but was never looked into either. I beleive he got just what he deserved. He will hate, manipulate, and do anything to get his way. He nev er forgives. What goes around, comes around and now he is going to pay for what he has done to alot of people. Had I known what he had told his public Defender about me prior to Mr. Ripol allowing me to view the entire files, I would have never married him. God wanted me to know is what I figure. I went to the crime scene the monday before the trial started and blessed the ground in which Patricia was murdered and with holy oil I asked the Lord just to bring forth the truth. The Lord answered my prayer. Rest in Peace now Patricia, you are free to go o Jesus side, you never deserved this. To the Pacheco family,her son Robert, mother and husband I am so sory for your loss and beleiving in this man, I have asked for forgiveness from the Lord. I pray that he gets the sentance you want so you can have your closure. I was lied to also, the man I called my best friend, I hope you can now admit you remeber. The evidence is clear I agree with Eric Marrow, you sure seem to remeber alot to forget you beat the he double LL out of her. I saw the photos and it makes me sick and haunts me and will forever.

I think he's done more than 7 years collectively for his past DUIs (ha!)...

Proof that a little jail time did him no good. Give him the MAX so, if he comes out alive, he'll be a weak, old, brittle man who can harm no one else!

I agree, jail time has not gotten his attention in the past so giving him the Max is the only way to protect others from him. What kind of a person marries someone in jail? Duh! If the wife has been acting goofy, duh again.

One that never witness his violent behavior, one who beleived his lies, one that loved him for 8 years, one that is truly regrets having a brain fart. I hope he gets the max he hurt me also, and lied to me. I will not forget but I will forgive.

Ok he lied to you and all that,you are not the true victim here.Patricia Pacheco is. The Pacheco family is. So get off your pitty pot. You ramble on and on about how you are the victim and throw in an occasional comment about the real victims. Quit your ramblings and move on.

John has been a BAD drunk since I first met him. He is a pathological liar, abusive to women and a bad dad. His mother always covered for him, instead of standing up to him, she made excuses, never made him suffer the consiquences. The courts seemed to turn a blind eye to his many drunk driving convictions. He even pulled a gun on an Ignacio policeman and got away with it. The justice system failed here and I believe can be held partially accountable for his actions. It seems John always found a way out of things, you know boys will be boys. All of the people who knew him from the old days were not surprised that John ended up killing someone. Sure John could seem sweet but after a week of his constant lies about everything it got old fast. There are lots of victims here. He has 3 children that have suffered as well. I know they feel bad for the family of the victim. John has left ruin in every life he has touched. The sad part of all of this is that he will not have learned a lesson, when and if he gets out he will drink and do drugs. He will hurt someone else. John believes that none of the rules apply to him. He was once a friend many moons ago, but I have to say he needs to remain locked up. And by the way he never served 7 years for drunk driving all the time collectively may add up to 2.5 HIs longest stay was I think 1 year and that was for his 5th or 6th DUI. To the wife.. you need counciling, if you could not figure out you were being manipulated by this man you need to take a long look at yourself before you enter another relationshiip. John only does what is good for john, he was never your friend, but a user. I believe that he honestly hates women. You allowed yourself to be a victim here I am not saying this to be mean but you need to take a good look at yourself and figure out what part you played in getting yourself hurt. HOnestly I mean you no disrespect. Learn and move on.

I agree fully and totally with this statement and I have known him much longer than 27 years. He must serve the Max, for he will continue his behavior if he is not an old and weak man when he gets out. Who will determine the sentence? The judge only? How can the people, who have know him a long time, get word to the judge concerning his, almost lifetime, craziness?

I totally agree! I am in counciling now, and had I know what I know today never would I have married him. i just found out a week ago that he pulled a gun on a ute cop also. The one side I never saw was violent though. However I now beleive. I do feel bad for Robert, cleo and Cris, and the entire Hunt Family. I think the world of his kids, and the friends I know of his.

This is a mistake I will pay for for a very long time beleive me. I did file annulment papers last tuesday and I hope this will be over soon. So he can go to his little prison condo wherever.

I did go to the crime scene the Monday before trial and annointed the spot Patricia passed and prayed that the truth be reveiled so the family and Patricia could get closure. It is not about me, I am upset with John, however it was about Patricia the whole time. She and all the family deserved closure and even with the third DNA on her ring, John went through with the trial because I beleive he knew what he did.

Being a christian had alot to do with my though process. God still Loves him has punished him just as a father would do. I forgive him like my father would but6 anullment is in order as he never used me you are very right. Who ever you are I am sorry you had to be a part of the lifes he did wrong also.

May god just continue to work on him while is is in prison. All I can do is pray for him now.

no have no pity for me. Mine all goes to John. My life will go on. I have no criminal history. I went out with my girlfriends last night and, I took care of me for the first time in 11 months and it felt good.

I will not be his victim or anyones victim.

My mistake was listening to a pathilogical liar but it took this to see that.

I am good, I feel better, I am not stressed out any more, no more daily phone calls with lots of lies. It has been very nice. So I have no pity here, I give it all to John he's the one that is going to needed it now. Going from solitare to population. I sure hope he will be able to handle the hispanic gangs, murdering a hispanic woman. I would not want to be in his shoes.

Like I said all I can do for him is keep him in prayer. As for me, Life will go on, I will make better choices I will make sure of that. I am glad I have friends who are wonderful and supportive.

No, I am sorry I am just thanking those who opened my eyes. If he was found not Guilty I could have been his next vicim you never know. I Just was thanking those who serve and protect because there is a possibility they saved my life. I feel Justice was served and look forward to his sentancing hearing on the 18th of June. I don't hate, I don't hate John....He has had his good times and was very good to me. I just never witnessed what everyone else had. I am just disappointed in him that he took a life of someone who was loved and will be missed alot by her family. He just would not give up the alchohol, guess he will have to now.

Johns kids have enough on their plate, they don't need your added misery. As a close friend to the kids I ask that you leave them alone. It would be the kind thing to do. Your regretable mistake should not be visited on his kids.

Were you not the one who called John a BAD DAD? Guilty or not thats still there DAD, and I am sure they still Love him!! Give the Kids the respect they deserver. So you knew him 27 years, I really dont care. My heart goes out to those kids, it was not there fault, nor was it mine. It may be a regretable mistake I made,however, I can recover and move on with my life. I'll pray for you also, Just as I do John and those kids and anyone effected by this tragity. Maybe you should show those kids some love now that there going to need those close to them now more than ever. If your such a good friend you should reach out to them now. Dispite your saying John was a BAD dad, those kids turned out to be good kids and I respect them alot. Just remember that!! I do respect there space.
