Posted on 11/25/2011 8:49:17 PM PST by nickcarraway
Joran van der Sloot will stand trial beginning January 6 on robbery and murder charges related to a 21-year-old woman's death, a Peruvian court announced Friday.
The timetable from the Superior Court of Lima came days after a panel of judges ruled against having the Dutch national face an even more stringent slate of charges, as the victim's family members had requested. Instead, he will face the original charges levied against him -- which, if he is convicted on all counts, could lead to a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
Van der Sloot is accused of killing Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room last year. Police say he took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.
He was charged in September with "qualified murder" and simple robbery, which carry sentences of 28 years and two years, respectively.
The victim's family asked a three-judge panel for a charge akin to aggravated murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

If he gets convicted of this crime, he ain’t hitting thirty years.
Show time for Urine boy.
“i am amazed he’s still sucking air... “
Me too. In most countries, people get really, really, upset when a foreigner comes in kills a citizen. Of course here (particularly in Texas) we give the foreigners like that subsidized college education and make sure sure the police aren’t able to track them down.
“If he gets convicted of this crime, he aint hitting thirty years.”
I think you are right.
National Geographic channel has been running a series called
“Locked Up Abroad”.
It gives me cold chills just to watch it.
So far, every country makes American prisons look like a Club Med.
I’m gonna’ go out on a limb and guess he won’t be getting an “OJ jury”.
I hate this kid so much...
Try to stay on subject. This thread isn’t about Perry or Humpin’ Herman.

I didn’t mention Perry or Herman (other than my tag line). I just wanted Jordan to know that some states welcome Illegals, and Texas is one of them.
Funny how someone thought of Perry after reading your post. That says a lot! LMAO
It’s about time this serial killer paid the price for his crimes.
