Killer Sentenced to 35 Years in Prison

I’m having a hard time comprehending why the judge would give this thug anything less than the maximum penalty.

Kenosha— Former West Allis police officer Steven Zelich was sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday for killing an Oregon woman during a sexual encounter and hiding her body first in his apartment and then in a suitcase that he tossed on the side of a Walworth County highway.

“It’s a crime that is almost beyond comprehension, that this great indignity would be visited upon this person,” Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder said.

Zelich, 54, faced a maximum prison sentence of 50 years after he pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse in the 2012 death of Jenny Gamez, 19, of Cottage Grove, Ore.

    At the rate Obama is letting felons out of prison, Zelich might be out before 2017.

    All we need is one liberal filmaker to make a documentary on how Zelich was framed, and we will have naive liberals come out of woodwork and claim he was framed…to the eternal disgust of the victim’s families.

    If there is evil in the world, liberals will be invariably try and lobby for it.

    Can Obama free state prisoners? Or only those in federal prisons? Big difference, but no one expected you to know the difference. You will just take any opportunity to take a cheap jab at those with different opinions.

    I too think the guy should have got the max plus.

    “If there is evil in the world, liberals will be invariably try and lobby for it”. Yet another quote from kevin’s Book of Made Up Stuff.
