The Cleveland kidnapping case is coming to a close as Ariel Castro reached a plea deal earlier today to avoid getting the death penalty.
Ariel faced a grand total of 937 charges including rape and kidnapping after he kept Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight captive for more than ten years.
He changed his plea to guilty in hopes of reaching a deal that would get him life in prison plus 1,000 years without any possibility of parole.

The man who shot and killed John Lennon won’t be seeing life outside his jail cell anytime soon…!

This is the SEVENTH time Chapman’s been denied, after requesting parole every two years since 2000.

As expected, Lane Garrison has pled not guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
The former Prison Break actor allegedly slapped his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, during an encounter in the lobby of her Beverly Hills apartment building.

It's been a few days coming and the video evidence was a little fuzzy, but the El Lay District Attorney has formally charged Lane Garrison with misdemeanor domestic violence.
Although he swears he did not slap his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, the authorities determined the video evidence said differently. Plus, we heard a witness stepped forward, so it sounds like Mr. Garrison is in some serious trouble.
Since he is on parole, the actor is being

Sorry Charlie, but you're not getting out THAT easy.
Infamous murderer and cult leader Charles Manson was denied parole on Wednesday for the 12th and possibly final time.
He was convicted in 1972 for committing seven murders, including Sharon Tate, and was sentenced to death. Since California declared the death penalty was unconstitutional, he has just been rotting in prison.
The 77-year-old's next chance at parole will be in 15 years and he'll be 92. Considering his reputation, we doubt the parole board will like him any better then.

Not that he needs it since he's busy serving a 33-year prison sentence for armed robbery, but he's probably still pretty bummed about this.
OJ Simpson's 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Miami home is being foreclosed on! Guess he couldn't keep up with the bills for the $575,000 property he purchased in 2000.
By the time the former football player gets out of prison, he'll most likely be in his 70s (providing he gets parole) and ready to retire to Boca Raton anyway.
