san-diego-prison Not that big of a deal, but it might be an indication of the terrible state of our prison system.

Via Mercury News:

A 40-year-old inmate has been stabbed to death by a fellow prisoner at Donovan State Prison east of San Diego.

Sheriff’s Lt. Dennis Brugos says the inmate, whose name wasn’t released, was stabbed Monday morning in the Otay Mesa prison’s recreational yard. He was serving time for theft.

Authorities say 49-year-old Frank Baca of San Francisco, who is serving a life sentence for murder, stabbed the inmate. A motive hasn’t been disclosed.


San Diego Rapist Sentenced to Life in Prison

jail John Albert Gardner III is a pathetic human being who should (and will) rot in jail for the rest of his life. What he did was horrible and unimaginable.

Via Crime Voice:

Convicted sex offender John Albert Gardner III will spend the rest of his life in prison for the murder of two North County teenage girls, a San Diego Superior Court judge ruled Friday.

Judge David Danielsen didn’t mince words when he sentenced Gardner to two terms of life in prison for murdering Chelsea King and Amber Dubois. Additionally, Gardner received an additional 25 years to life for an attempted sexual assault on a 22-year-old Colorado woman near Lake Hodges in San Diego several months before King’s murder on Feb. 25. Danielsen added an additional 24 years to Gardner’s sentence because of a prior sexual assault conviction.

At 2:27 p.m., moments after the judge’s ruling, bailiffs led Gardner out of the courtroom shackled, quiet and seemingly unremorseful, much like the way he had entered an hour earlier.

Gardner, 31, pleaded guilty April 16 to the kidnapping, rape and killing of Dubois as well as the rape and murder of King. Dubois vanished Feb. 13 as she walked to Escondido High School. The 14-year-old’s disappearance had been a mystery until Gardner led authorities to the girl’s remains near Pala in northern San Diego following his arrest.

Meanwhile, King’s body was found March 2 in a shallow grave a short distance from her car in Rancho Bernardo Community Park. The 17-year-old was a senior at Poway High School.

Police arrested Gardner Feb. 28 in Escondido after linking DNA on an article of King’s clothing found at the crime scene to him.  In exchange for his plea, prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty against Gardner.
