Evil Scum

Posted in The Job - General by 200

A burglar who tortured &  murdered a pensioner before burning her body & house was jailed for life this week at Teeside Crown Court.

33-year-old drug addict, Steven Hodgson broke into the 84-year-old widow’s home & strangled her on he bed after forcing her to reveal her PIN number.

He packed 2 suitcases with her valuables which he got his partner to pawn.

Hodgson’s DNA was found under his victim’s fingernails indicating she had tried to fight him off.

The judge in the case said: “I can detect at no stage the slightest degree of remorse on your part at the death of this lovely woman. You are a very dangerous man.” Hodgson, a man with a long criminal history of burglary & violence,  admitted in court that he preferred breaking into people’s homes when they were in as this meant cash, bags & credit cards would be available.

He was given a minimum term of 34 years.

    “He was given a minimum term of 34 years.”

    Why not 33 years or 35 years. Why so precise a figure?

    Anyway, bullshit aside, what will he really have to do – Ten?

    He would have been eligible for parole after ten years if he had received “life”.
    Since he received life with a 34 minimum he will serve that….if there is no appeal.

    I look back with a certain amount of nostalgia, at the days when a judge donned a black hat before sentencing a scrote such as this to hang……….

    Oh…I don’t know…he’ll be 67 when released. But he won’t survive 34 years anyway….
    In the normal course of events he would not even be consider for parole either…..a not guilty verdict and no noticeable sign that he even appreciates he did wrong means a no-parole sentence.
    So it looks like a no-release-until-harmless sentence….although that does depend upon who is doing the considering.
