I know you haven’t forgotten the Newark schoolyard massacre perpetrated by the illegal alien MS-13 gang members. I blogged about the 1st conviction in the case in May. Click on that link for all the background reminders on how open borders and the deportation abyss aided and abetted the killers.
Yesterday, a judge sentenced illegal alien barbarian Rodolfo Godinez to more than 200 years in prison.
He’ll never get out.
But he should have never been in this country in the first place.
With the anguished words of the victims’ relatives providing a preamble, a Newark man convicted in the execution-style murders of three college-bound friends in a schoolyard was sentenced to more than 200 years in prison Thursday by a judge who said the killings were produced by “a mind diseased.”
Rodolfo Godinez, convicted in May on 17 counts including murder, felony murder, robbery and weapons offenses, was given three consecutive life sentences plus 20 years by state Superior Court Judge Michael Ravin, who followed the state’s sentencing request.
The 27-year-old Nicaraguan immigrant is one of six defendants in the case; the other five await separate trials.
Ravin called Godinez “a menace” and referred to the “monstrousness of what happened in a place where, by day, one would hear the laughter of children at play.”
Before Ravin pronounced sentence, a procession of family members spoke about victims Terrance Aeriel, Iofemi Hightower and Dashon Harvey. The last to speak was a woman who survived the attacks and in chilling testimony at Godinez’ trial described being sexually assaulted, slashed with a machete and shot in the head.
“Y’all left me for dead, but I’m still here and I just graduated (from college)” said the woman, who is not being identified by The Associated Press because of the sexual assault charges. Turning to Ravin, she asked, “Are you going to inform us when he dies? Because if you do, I think I’m going to have a party.”
