Joran Van Der Sloot Has Made $50K In Jail


According to a report from The National Enquirer and confirmed by the Holloway family spokesperson, Joran Van Der Sloot has $50,000 from Dutch media interviews that he is using to bribe guards, buy new clothes, have drinks and food brought to him from outside jail and he is even playing poker at nights with the guards. Yes, he is in jail, but why should he have a life of luxury paid for by the killing of two women?

Since this seems to be common knowledge I can't believe the authorities in Peru are allowing him to live like this. He shows no remorse for either of the killings and this just absolutely disgusts me.

I honestly thought he would be murdered in jail by now. I lost that bet. This is terrible. Weren't there other "missing" or dead girls somewhere in S.America (or around the world maybe )that they were trying to link to him?

Karmen said...

WTF?! He makes more than the average American does for doing honest work? I wish he were locked up in the US so that there's no way he could make a profit off his misdoings.

I hate to say this but I wonder if Natalee Holloway's mom feels bad about giving him the 15k he used to go to Peru, rent a hotel and pick up his 2nd victim.

I do like that Natalee's mom confronted him in the Peru jail to say she is still keeping an eye on him.

Well, this is all kinds of disgusting.

This has been out there for a little over a week. At this stage it's clearly with the cooperation of the Peruvian authorities.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Here (and probably America) you can't profit from a crime. Too bad lots of places in the world are still behind when it comes to stuff like that.

RocketQueen said...

You all promised me that Joran would be living in misery by now! *shaking fist*

RocketQueen said...

And Sue Ellen - how do you define "profiting from crime"? Because plenty of Canadians have written books about their criminal exploits after the fact.

califblondy said...

Well, now we know why he's still among the living.

Karma, where are you? Joran is waiting.

Bloodonthescreen, I heard there were other missing women as well.

Jenny said...

Since he is supposed to be such a bad poker player, I understand why the guards are playing poker with him. Easy money.

He hasn't even been locked up for a year yet. Do you really think this will last a year? I don't think so. His time will come. Slowly. Very slowly. Even $50k won't last him that long. Remember that seedy hotel he was in? Patience my friends, patience.

Yeah, they've written books, but they can't keep the money that is made from it, but perhaps it's not a Federal Law, but a Provincial one.

ie
The Profits of Criminal Notoriety Act, aka 'Thatcher's Law'

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I found something better from Mcleans:

Under the act, which was modelled after similar legislation in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia, the government can seize the profits from any “recounting of a crime.” It’s now commonly referred to as “Thatcher’s Law” in the province.

This is America:

The federal government and many states, including Washington, have "Son of Sam" laws barring criminals from making money off crimes in which a victim is physically harmed or killed.




Sorry, had to edit my copy paste

He's a pure sociopath and cannot empathize with anyone. He feels that Beth Tweedy ruined HIS life by making a big deal out of her daughter dying and bitching about where her body is, he's angry at Beth. His own mother is terrified of him, and I read a Dutch interview where she blames Beth for Stepanie dying *get ready* because she was making Joran go to a mental institution in Holland, but when she took the bait Joran laid out to extort Beth, he had money to go to Peru to gamble. She said she knew something was wrong with him when he was a child, liar, sneak, risk taker, and thief. The father was his protector.

On another disturbing note, he somehow hooked up with the CSUN Accounting professor in Thailand to run underage prostitution sex trips. Big Baby Benny is the PHD professor still teaching at Cal State Northridge. Even though the professor used a students photos on his sex site, updated it all day long from the Univ servers, he was not fired, instead the Chancellor wrote a lofty press release about his freedom of speech. The fact that promoting sex tours for underage prostitution which is specifically sanctioned by the State Dept, he rated places the professor rated for sex tourism,on his site all day long! This is illegal and he still remains a professor. Joran and Big Baby Benny, and your tax dollars for kid prostitution. It's just one more revolting aspect of Joran and his evil reach.It certainly begs an investigation into what is going at Cal State Northridge.

Sorry for the length, Joran's reach extends even to the LA basin.

I agree with you Sue Ellen, but remember one thing. He hasn't been convicted yet. I think those laws apply only after a guilty verdict.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@surfer

You're right about that. However, if he were in jail here in Canada, or the US, there is no way he would be able to "profit" like he is in Peru. I'm talking hard profit from the sale of something, not little favours because you have money.

RocketQueen said...

Yes, I'm familiar with the law (which is still quite new), but enforcement of it seems to occur on a case by case basis. Although that's primarily the case when the criminal moves away from the country in which he was convicted, in which case enforcement is nearly impossible.

Anyway, sure would be nice if someone could appropriate this psychopath's funds and give it to the families of HIS victims.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@RQ

You're right about the case by case basis. That article I read real quick cited Robert Latimer as an example of someone that the law shouldn't apply to. I don't really know a lot about how these laws work internationally, cause International Law is next year, but I will find out and if we're still on here, I will tell you.

And I 100% agree with the profits going to the victims families and to pay back the state the costs for prosecuting/housing/lethally injecting these fools. I read a case where the US prosecutor used that as a stipulation in a plea.

Sorry for going on, but this is what I love to talk about.

Sue (in MO) said...

I say damn the Dutch Media interviewers. Screw them for paying this guy a fricking penny. People should be boycotting any newspaper or news station, OR any and all of their advertisers, that have paid that SOB a dime.

He murdered two young girls. No interview is justified that allows him to profit. If he didn't have the money to bribe, he wouldn't be living a cushy life in that jail.

This just makes me so angry. I can only imagine how sick Beth Twitty feels.

Please be kind as I am a long term reader but first time commenter; mostly b/c I hate this guy soooooo much!! Anways, i was perusing randomly online a few days ago and happened on a story where this law was an issue.. it seems this law DOES exist, however, it is likely unconstitutional and has been struck down the few times it's been challenged. I know I saw this on an article regarding a case before the US supreme court but here is a comment from one that went to the CA supreme court.. I'm sorry about the long post and if I can find the US case I'll post on that too.. ANways, I was shocked (and saddened to read:)

The California Supreme Court struck down California's Son of Sam law in 2002, applying logic similar to Simon & Schuster in Keenan v. Superior Court. In light of Simon & Schuster and Keenan, it seems likely few of the original Son of Sam laws would withstand a constitutional challenge. According to the National Center for Victims of Crime, "[n]early one-third of all states have not altered their notoriety-for-profit statutes following the Simon & Schuster ruling. Some states that have amended their laws have not addressed the Supreme Court's concerns. However, a substantial number of states have attempted to revise their laws to make them constitutional." New York amended its statute in 1992 and again in 2001 to create, as one author has described it, "a never-ending threat of suit" applying to those "under the watch of the criminal justice system." So in some states criminals can write books or give interviews about their crimes and earn money for the stories; in others criminals cannot profit from their crimes.

I read that Joran was paying and buying gifts for a convicted felon who is protecting him from other prisoners.

Will someone please off this pig-faced weasel already?

Mango said...

@Zandra - I was so floored by your post about the Cal State professor that I had to google it. By the way, his site is bigbabykenny.com, not benny. Blows my fucking mind that the university hasn't fired his sick, twisted ass.

He must have tenure.
