Ariel Castro – A Different Kind of Justice
Although he faced 977 charges for the kidnap and rape, assault and other counts, Ariel Castro has avoided a death penalty by accepting a plea deal that will place him in jail for life without parole plus 1,000 years.
Castro kidnapped Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight between 2002 and 2004 and held them captive and raped and tortured them for a decade.
The three young women are all in counseling and reported doing well after their harrowing ordeal.
Fortunately, they will not have to relive their nightmare by facing a lengthy trial!
