Peruvian Judge Rules Van Der Sloot Confession Valid

Filed under: Legal Matters

Thank goodness!

Peruvian Superior Court Judge Wilder Casique has denied a motion by the defense to void Joran Van Der Sloot's confession in the murder of 21-year-old Lima student Stephany Flores. The judge is ruling the confession to be valid since the attorney representing him at the time was state-appointed.

Van der Sloot had recanted the confession in a jailhouse interview, claiming that it was made under duress and he had no idea what he was signing.

Judge Casique, however, noted that Van der Sloot had been given a Dutch-Spanish interpreter vetted by the Dutch Embassy, in addition to his lawyer.

Defense attorney Maximo Altez says that they plan on appealing the judge decision to a higher court, but criminal law expert Jose Balcazar says whether or not they appeal, it "will not hold up the case against him."

The defense is clearly trying to stall the trial to give Van der Sloot more time, but luckily Peruvian laws only allow up to six months in murder trials.

If convicted, Van der Sloot will face 15-35 years in prison.

He should be in prison for the rest of his life!

Joran Van Der Sloot Refused To Talk To Judge!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Although he confessed to the murder of Stephany Flores, Joran van der Sloot has revoked the confession.

And now he is refusing to speak to a judge about the case! He's claiming habeas corpus, a legal action where a defendant can seek relief from unlawful detention.

Maximo Altez, van der Sloot's lawyer, is claiming that his client's rights and due process were violated after his recent arrest. They are hoping that it will make the confession invalid.

Joran is still claiming that he was "tricked" into confessing.

"In my blind panic I signed everything, but never knew what was written on them," he said.

We hope van der Sloot gets what's coming to him.

Joran Van Der Sloot Retracts His Confession; Mother Says He Is "Sick In The Head"

Filed under: Busted!Sad Sad

This guy makes us sick! We swear, if he gets away with ANOTHER murder, there truly is no justice in the world.

Joran van der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutchman famous for his involvement in the Natalee Holloway disappearance and currently imprisoned on another murder charge, told the press this morning that he was "tricked" into signing confession papers by the Peruvian police. In a statement, he claims that he was "scared and confused" and signed whatever the police put in front of him under the pretense that he would be extradited back to the Netherlands. He insists his "blind panic" during the interrogation was the reason he never read any of the materials handed to him and thus, he wants his confession retracted.

This coming from a guy who looked as cool as ice walking into prison. There is no fear in this guy - just a twisted brain eager to see how far he can go to get off the hook!

Do not fall for it!

If you need anymore proof that the guy isn't all there, you need only speak to his mother, Anita van der Sloot, who broke her silence this morning to tell the world her son is not a "monster," but rather "sick in the head."

In her first interview ever, Anita reveals that Joran was to be committed to a psychiatric hospital just two days before he fled for Peru, where he is accused of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores. She says that while she is sure Joran had "nothing to do with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005, she adds that he "may have killed" poor Stephany.

His own mother believes he is capable of it. Course, it also seems like she is hoping to spare him jail time (or worse) by getting him committed.

We don't care where he is locked up, just so long as he IS locked up and for the rest of this life.

They Got Him! Joran Van Der Sloot Arrested In Chile On New Murder Charge!

Filed under: Busted!

Finally! This guy deserves EVERYTHING that he gets!

Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man who has long been suspected to be the murderer of Natalee Holloway, was apprehended and arrested for the murder of another young woman this afternoon.

Joran is suspected of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores at a hotel in Lima, Peru Sunday, five years to the day after Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba. Police found poor Stephany lying face down on the floor of van der Sloot's hotel room, her neck broken and fully clothed.

The police caught up with Joran in Santiago, Chile, while he was traveling by taxi. Three armed policeman promptly escorted Joran to prison, where a slew of reporters waited. Upon entering the facility, Joran was reportedly not handcuffed and walked "calmly" without speaking. Police on the scene say that he did not resist arrest and has remained calm while in detention.

Hopefully, he is saying his prayers. There is no way he is getting out of this one. He might think he is above the law, but we can't see how the law WON'T punish him this time around!

Maybe, this will bring some peace to Stephany's family, as well as Natalee's. This has been a long time coming.
