Justice For Julie Popovich, Adam Saleh sentence of 38 years to life for Sex Predator


Finally there is justice for Julie Popovich. Adam Saleh was sentenced to 38 years to life for the attempted rape and murder of Julie Popovich. Julie Popovich has originally went missing on August 11, 2005.

“Today we received justice for Julie because a very dangerous man is being removed from society,” Popovich?s mother, Peggy White, said yesterday. “But I encourage young women to beware of the predators because they are out there waiting.”

The judge called Saleh a “shark” who might prey on other women if he is ever released. He sent Saleh, 20, to prison for the maximum sentence of 38 years to life and labeled him a sexual predator.

The jury of six men and six women found Saleh, an auto mechanic, guilty of murder, attempted rape, kidnapping and tampering with evidence for the 2005 slaying of Popovich, 20.

They acquitted him of aggravated murder charges, sparing him a possible prison sentence of life without parole. Jurors deliberated about seven hours over two days. (Columbus Dispatch)

Finally, a sex predator being treated and called for what they really are.

The judge called Saleh a “shark” who might prey on other women if he is ever released.

Hogan told Saleh: “I have come to the conclusion that you, sir, are a shark and I hope the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction never lets you out, because I am convinced that once you are out you will find a way to behave the same way again.”

      Good Job?!!! Adam was soo framed for this murder. Why did the judge allow so much evidence to be suppressed? Theres NO evidence he did this. How did he get her 20 miles away and back 20 miles? Hairs and fibers were found in the trunk they said he put her in but none were Julies. They said he vacuumed it out. Wow he must have only vacuumed up her hairs… ?? Who was this jury anyway and why were they allowed to go home? Why did they deliberate only hrs and he was sentenced the same day?! Why did the jury believe “inmates” over the LAW ABIDING citizens that testified? Truth is coming out with the appeal……….
