Posted on 06/11/2010 9:27:32 AM PDT by jimbo123
Joran van der Sloot has been charged with murder in the slaying of 21-year-old Stephany Flores.
Peruvian judge Juan Buendia has ordered van der Sloot jailed on murder and robbery charges, and described van der Sloot as having acted with "ferocity and great cruelty."
Police say van der Sloot smashed in the face of Lima business student Stephany Flores, whom he met playing poker at a casino, after taking her to his hotel room on May 30. They say he then strangled her, threw her to the floor and emptied her wallet.
Buendia issued the order before dawn Friday, instructing penal authorities to place the Dutchman in a penitentiary pending trial.

I’m not an expert in Dutch or Peruvian law but was wondering if this scenario is possible:
He confesses to the Natalee Halloway murder and proves it by giving up the location of the body which is found.
Can he then be extradited back to Aruba to be tried and serve sentence for the first murder he committed before having to return to Peru to serve sentence on the last murder committed?
The answer may shed light on his tactics...
Someone said this girls father can hire someone inside the prison to kill Van der Sloot for very little money.
I think that is his strategy. More likely his lawyers.
“Si, buenos noches, Senor van der Sloot! Que guapo!”
Man, I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes.
“I hear a train a’ comin’, comin’ round the bend...”
They said $50.
Van der Sloot will probably hire professional protection though. So there you are!
Joran's grooms eagerly await his arrival.
I bet a lot of people would do him for free.
It’s a shame his father isn’t around to give away the bride.
He will probably be transferred back to Aruba to stand trial for the murder of Natalie Holloway and the authorities there will conveniently turn their heads long enough for him to slip away and into obscurity. Then his mommy will keep him hidden and support him till she dies.
Barbara: [whistles] Nice butt. Thats what theyll say.
Ken Kessler: I beg your pardon?
Barbara: Nice butt. Thats what theyll say on your first day, in the mens club.
Ken Kessler: The mens club?
Barbara: Mmm. The San Quentin Country Club. With a cute little rear end like that, youll be the belle of the ball. Your dance cardll be filled every day. Youll be so popular, making all kinds of new, close friends. Big, ugly, hairy friends! Not that youll ever see what they look like, cause youll be facing the other way.
Ken Kessler: Youre very good at this. You should write childrens books.
I haven’t heard it mentioned in the news cirsuit so was thinking I just didn’t know their laws well enough. Heads will explode if he pulls it off!
He said he will reveal the location of Natalie’s body if he is brought back to Aruba.
I just don’t see Peru giving him this opportunity.
Wait until he’s been in a Peru prison for one year.
Then tell him if he gives evidence resulting in the recovery of Natalee’s remains, he can have a pack of smokes.
You can’t give a sociopath leverage!
Peru will hold onto him. He may not face trial in Aruba until after he is sentenced in Peru. It ain’t like the old USA. Penetentiary on a pre-trial basis ought to take the starch out of this puke.
Peruvian prisons are not nice. Anyone remember that lefty woman about ten years ago who got convicted in Peru? They put her in a prison on a mountaintop...without glass in the windows. Newsweek and Time made much of the horrible conditions a non-Peruvian was suffering under, because she froze her rear off, and had little access to blankets, etc. I am sure they are cooking up something nice for Van der Puke, too.
Aruba was very lenient with him before. I think his parents were bigwigs in Aruba.
That may be his hope. But Peru would have to extradite him first. And I don't see them doing that after he murdered the daughter of a former presidential candidate.
Either that or he will get the first “life without parole” sentence in Aruba enabling him to have a private jail condo with all amenities avoiding the Peruvian hell.
Considering what we know of Peruvian prisons, that may be the most merciful thing the father can do. Better to let him live...and suffer.
I certainly hope Peru holds on to him.
Even if the Dutch authorities sweeten the pot with favorable trade or simply a cash bailout offered to Peru? He seems to be somewhat of a hero to the Dutch even now.
The punk ain’t such a tough guy now. I heard on the news he called his mother crying that he was being mistreated.
ROTFLMAO!!! I guarantee him that the mistreatment hasn't even begun. Mrs. van der Sloot's little boy Joran is in for quite a ride once he gets to prison.
He killed the daughter of a presidential candidate. I don't think the government will overlook that too easily.
I hope that’s true. Save the Peruvian taxpayers from having to pay this vile creature’s room and board and trial expenses.
And authorities should ignore his new claims to be able to tell them the location of Holloway’s body, unless they’re prepared to shoot him on the spot if it isn’t where he says it is. He already played that sick game once before, and a lot of other sick games. If he’d been locked up for lying to investigators and lying to the media in an attempt to derail the investigation, he wouldn’t have been in a position to murder Flores (or the other young women that are now thought to have possibly been murdered by him).
...in more ways than one.
Let the Donkey treatment begin.
"Joran, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?"
He also said he lies >60% of the time. Is this also a lie?
He is going to find out that the definition of mistreated has many facets
Sure do hope the other inmates don't try to intrude on his privacy.
Known to his new boyfriend as Urine in der Chute.
That’s good news, was afraid Peru may have a provision allowing extradition for crimes committed previously.
I saw a “Locked Up Abroad” episode of a prison in Lima, Peru. Van Der Sloot’s comfort level just plummeted..
Billy Hayes aka “Crazy” was a friend of mine at Marquette.
Let's see if the Peruvians give a crap about the celebrity status Joran is enjoying.
“or the other young women that are now thought to have possibly been murdered by him”
When this story first came out, and the 5 year “anniversary” date was given, I suggested that investigators should find out where Urine was every year on that date, and investigate any murders or disappearances. Do you have any other info/links about “other young women?”
I saw some mention in an article within the past few days that authorities in some South American country were looking into whether he might be responsible for the unsolved murders of two young women there. I don’t recall any more details.
In theory, yes.
In reality, Aruba and even Holland do not do enough business with Peru to warrant an extradition of someone who murdered any Peruvian citizen - let alone a popular Peruvian celebrity's daughter.
I'm sure Peru's answer will be that they will be happy to hand him over as soon as he's served his Peruvian time.
I'm guessing that Peruvian prosecutors will argue that both Aruba and the FBI had the opportunity to arrest him and convict him and they squandered their opportunities - and, as a result, he was walking around free to murder Miss Flores.
I'd add that a lot of posters here seem to think that he will suffer deeply in prison in Peru.
However, compared to most Peruvian inmates, he is fabulously wealthy. If his mother can get enough money into him to keep his fellow inmates supplied with contraband, etc. he will likely be able to buy protection. Also, at 6'3", he is young, strong and physically bigger than most Peruvians.
His time in prison will be brutal by our standards, but probably not what he deserves.
Too bad most of his country men arent joining him. Stories of “how she (halloway) deserved it being an American” abounded at the time.
I think it was Argentina.
In a discussion I heard from attorneys who seemed to know, it was stated that Joran had pled guilty to cut a deal for a shorter sentence. And, it was said that with good behavior, he could be out in eight years, around age 30.
All the others comments aside, that is pretty amazing if he could be out in eight years.
I'm no expert either, but from what I have read, there is no extradition treaty under which he could be sent back to Aruba. Supposedly the Dutch and Peru have one in the works but it has not yet been ratified.
The US and Peru have such a treaty, in theory he could be sent here to face the extortion charges, but I doubt it would happen anytime soon given the identity of the victim. Unless Peru decides it is just too much trouble to deal with him. I would imagine the US govt would love to get its hands on this slimebag.
