It's about time!
Joran van der Sloot, the man who has been found guilty in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores and main suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, may finally be getting the punishment he deserves from the U.S. justice system.
Sources are reporting that the process to extradite the criminal from Peruvian prison has begun and authorities hope to bring him to trial for charges of extortion and wire fraud from the Holloway case.
The only thing holding up his release to the United States is his effort to appeal the 28-year sentence he's currently serving in the South American country. The convicted murderer's attorney explained:
"I think he will be extradited within the next three months. He will go to trial in the United States. Once he is sentenced, he will return to Peru to finish serving his 28 years, and then go back to the States to serve whatever sentence he gets there."
So pretty much, this guy will be in prison for a LONG time because the extortion charge alone could result in 25 more years in prison! He might as well get used to it and stop complaining about poor quality of the food and drinking water.
