Joran van der Sloot may be serving a 28 year jail sentence, but that didn't stop him from getting married recently!
The 26-year-old Netherlands man, who is the main suspect behind the disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway and who is serving a long jail sentence for the murder of Peruvian college student Stephany Flores, wed his pregnant girlfriend this past Friday.
The bride is a 24-year-old Peruvian woman named Leidy Figueroa who met Joran van der Sloot while visiting relatives in the same prison where the convicted killer resides.
The wedding went down in that exact Lima prison, and the woman is expecting the killer's child this September.
But how were they able to conceive a child if Joran van der Sloot is behind bars?
Well, prison works a little bit differently in Peru.
Or at least that is how Joran van der Sloot's attorney recently explained it. The attorney said:
“They became friends and spent a lot of time together in his cell. Unlike the United States, here in Peru loved ones or relatives can see inmates inside their jails.”
But we doubt this child will get to know this father outside of prison anytime soon!
Joran van der Sloot still has 24 years left on his sentence before his extradition to the U.S. where he'll face an extortion indictment stemming from the Natalee Holloway case.
We definitely feel bad for that unborn baby though! Who would want a father like this???
