The Star-Ledger has a story about one of the guys in my Abraham class last summer.
An inmate at the Albert C. Wagner Youth Correctional Facility in Burlington County was strangled late Thursday and his body found under another inmate’s bunk, authorities said yesterday.
Schweitzer, of Easton, Pa., was sentenced in June 2003 to 8 1/2 to 10 years for sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl in Phillipsburg the previous summer.
It has been nearly two years since an inmate was murdered in a state prison.
(My emphases in bold.)
It seems to me that 8 1/2 to 10 is too short for that crime, and death at the hands of another inmate (after two years “inside” hoping nobody found out what your crime was) is too much.
Pray for his family and whoever killed him. Pray also for the victim of his crime and her family.
