Justice for Megan Williams


The wheels of justice continue to grind away at the sub-humans that kidnapped, tortured and raped Megan Williams last year.

Here is where we stand in the criminal cases on the perps in this case:
  1. Bobby Brewster pleaded guilty last week to second-degree sexual assault, malicious assault and conspiracy to commit kidnapping or holding hostage. Brewster's sentences will run one after the other, putting him in jail for at least 13 years and possibly up to 40 years.

  2. Frankie Brewster, 49, was sentenced in March to 10 to 25 years in prison for second-degree sexual assault. When he sentenced her, Perry said he took her prior conviction on voluntary manslaughter into consideration. Brewster also must register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.

  3. Danny J. Combs, faces charges in the case. Combs, who is charged with kidnapping, first-degree sexual assault and conspiracy, will go to trial in September.

  4. Karen Burton, the only person charged with a hate crime in the case, was sentenced in March to 10 years on that charge and 2 to 10 years each on two assault charges.

  5. George Messer and Alisha Burton each pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping and one count of assault during the commission of a felony. Each faces up to 10 years in prison.

  6. Linnie Burton Jr. pleaded guilty to battery June 9 as part of a deal approved by Williams. Burton was given a six-month suspended jail sentence and placed on one year of supervised probation.

Hopefully Megan Williams is moving towards the hopes and dreams in her life. I'm glad to see that the criminal justice system is working well in West Virginia!

Doubletake.

Woozie - I felt need to give the prosecutors and police credit for their efforts to get all of the perps in this case behind bars for as long as possible...

I was just wondering what came about this case. For some reason, the media coverage has died down.

Rippa - My observation is that the mainstream media doesn't stay interested if the victim isn't blue-eyed or blonde...
