Now this is what I like to see.
Patton, 42, pleaded guilty this week, a day into the first of an expected four trials, admitting even to 43 offenses that had been dropped because they were too old. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to 68 years in prison — longer than his plea bargain required — and fined $2.5 million for 135 counts of rape, kidnapping and burglary.
“The deal was for 50, and he asked for more,” defense attorney Terry Sherman said. “He made a statement that he doesn’t deserve to ever get out.”
Taking responsibility is something our society has lost sight of. This rapist is correct in his statement that “he doesn’t deserve to ever get out.” Frankly, he doesn’t deserve to own testicles either, but that is a different argument.
