Sandra Cantu was 8 years old over a year ago when Melissa Huckaby took her life. When it happened it was deny, deny, deny — then, in a shocking about-face, she entered a guilty plea.
So, why is America broke? For a year, Huckaby has been working the system. She even had Michael Burt join in her defense. If the name sounds familiar, he represented the “Night Stalker.” And the money to pay this San Francisco attorney comes out of a “special fund” in the public defender’s office, which means you’re still paying, California!
Again, Sandra was 8 years old. I won’t mention the other things Huckaby did to this little girl. But she gets a lifetime sentence — so pay and pay and pay. I am convinced stupidity is the ruin of America. The judge that rules this sentence fits the crime shouldn’t be judging any legal venue, in any court, in any state, on any continent. Now you can murder, after this legal precedent is made, and all that is required is to say, “Yes, I did it!” then sit back and wait for the movie.
I offer my condolences to the Cantu family and our country.
