Ariel Castro Update: Accused Cleveland kidnapper indicted on 329 counts, report says
CBS News ^ | June 7, 2013

Posted on 06/07/2013 4:19:41 PM PDT by Zakeet

A grand jury in Cuyahoga County, Ohio has returned a 329-count indictment against Ariel Castro, the man accused of kidnapping three women and keeping them captive in his Cleveland home for about a decade, CBS affiliate WOIO reports.

Castro was charged May 8 with rape and kidnapping after Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, escaped from his home.

Reportedly included on the indictment was one count of aggravated murder for allegedly causing the unlawful termination of another's pregnancy. Castro was also indicted on 139 counts of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping, seven counts of gross sexual imposition, three counts of felonious assault and one count of possession of criminal tools, WOIO reports.

The three women disappeared between 2002 and 2004 when they were in their teens or early 20s. Prosecutors and police allege that Castro kept them captive and beat and sexually abused them.

Authorities have said the women had multiple forced miscarriages.

Also discovered in the home was a six-year-old girl, who police have said is the child of Castro and Berry.

Justice delayed is justice denied, why isn’t he already executed? It seems pretty cut & dried.

One of these, properly placed, will do it just fine:

Okay, I can understand 139 counts of rape, one count for each rape over the years. But how do you get 155 counts of kidnapping?

I was wondering the same thing: you kidnap 3 people, but are charged with 177 counts of kidnapping? I admit my math skills are not my forte, but...that seems fuzzy to me.

I don’t want him to get the death penalty. I want him to get life without solitary. There are several benefits to this:
1. He will be killed anyway. Most likely he will be “played with” before being brutally killed. Lethal injection is too merciful.
2. The death penalty is expensive. His appeals will cost us a small fortune.
3. He will be put to death more quickly by his fellow inmates, as the death penalty process takes decades.

Does anyone know how this animal’s brothers could possibly be unaware of all of this? Something does not add up here.

Also, do we know if he was here legally?

I have no trust in criminals who are imprisoned for crimes that match his own ,or would if they could.

Defense attorneys who would take the case of this animal are as bad as he is. It is they who should be imprisoned IMO.

I believe I read that he is Puerto Rican, if so, he was here quite legally.
