Joran Van der Sloot Back in Court in Peru to Face Murder Charges in Death of Stephany Flores … Plea or More Game Playing by Van der Sloot?


Sorry, but “SINCERE” and Joran Van der Sloot cannot be used in the same sentence, let alone a legal sentence.

Today, Joran Van der Sloot will head back to court in Peru, just five days after the Dutch national requested more time to decide on a plea deal in the murder of 21 year old Stephany Flores in a Lima, Peru hotel. Last week Joran Van der Sloot continued to play games in this murder trial, no different that the one’s that he has played ever since the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005. It had been reported that last week Van der Sloot would make a plea and confess to the murder of Flores. Instead, Joran acted with complete contempt for the court.

Joran van der Sloot returns to a Peruvian courtroom on Wednesday, five days after requesting more time to “reflect” on what plea he will make in his murder trial.

The 24-year-old Dutch national indicated on Friday that he was willing to make a “confession” in the 2010 killing of Stephany Flores, but that he did “not agree with the aggravating factors” as defined in the murder charge levied against him.

Given this statement, the panel of three judges decided to give van der Sloot until Wednesday to make a final decision. There is no jury.

How could any court accept a “sincere” confession from Joran Van der Sloot? All one would have to do is take a look at how Joran acted in court last week to understand that a sociopath is incapable of being sincere. Of course the manner in how Joran Van der Sloot has conducted himself since 2005 in his confessions, retractions and game playing with regarding to the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

Under Peruvian law, a prison term for a “sincere confession” to a murder is normally much shorter than one for an outright guilty plea. Prosecutors have said van der Sloot robbed and killed Flores before fleeing the scene of a crime to Chile.

But on the first day of his trial in Lima on Friday, he told the court he should not be charged with aggravating circumstances of the murder that could lengthen his sentence.

So will Van der Sloot cop a plea? Please tell me that the Peruvian Court is not going to further allow the miscarriage of justice that has been the actions of Joran. Plea, no plea or more games? Its hard to predict when dealing with a sociopath.

      Seems Peru and The Netherlands have been in talks to move Joran to Vught asap after his conviction.

      Peru can’t secure his safety anymore and want him gone. He’ll be walking the streets again in 2014 I fear.

      UPDATE: Guilty!

      He admitted to killing Stephanie as a result of all the stress from the Natalee Holloway Case. Joran still the blame game…Creepozoid.

      My money says more “games” and stalling tactics from The Evil Little Sporter.

      Funny, but here in Boston, former FBI Top Ten Most Wanted Murderer and Corrupt Gangster Whitey Bulger is currently doing the same thing with the Federal Government while awaiting his trial on 19 Murder charges to begin with.

      Joran van der Sloot – In His Own Words

      Confession: Joran van der Sloot describes killing Stephany Flores
      Tuesday, June 15, 2010

      Asked for a detailed description of the killing:

      “She was on the bed when I hit her hard with my right elbow and I think her head went back and hit the wall, then she begins to bleed, immediately I get on top of her and with both hands I begin to strangle her, keeping her that way for a minute. After that, I throw her to the floor but she keeps breathing. At that moment I take off my shirt and put it on her face, pressing on it. I don’t remember for how long but she stops breathing, in this way I think I caused her death.”

      If Joran van der Sloot receives a sentence less than the maximum 30 years afforded by the prosecution charges … the maximum 30 year sentence that could translate in substantially less with Peruvian “reduction credits” … I suspect that Aruban/Dutch “powers that be” are working behind the scenes with the prosecutor and judges … the “Aruban/Dutch “powers that be” who have a vested interest to assure that Joran does not retaliate and expose those behind the corrupt investigation that prevented justice from prevailing for Natalee Holloway.

      Could it be that the Peruvian objective is to pacify the weary Flores’ family and the court of public opinion while at the same time assuring that a minimum sentence implies that Joran will be transferred to Aruba/Holland to serve his sentence.

      If this happens … will Aruba/Holland cooperate in regards to Joran’s extradition to the States to face extortion charges? Is there a current extradition agreement in place?

      A little research regarding the Peruvian justice system encompassing bribes that range from the issuing of a traffic ticket all the way up to the judges residing over the outcome of criminal cases is recommended.

      I have been on the roller coaster called “HOPING FOR THE BEST AND PREPARING FOR WORST” for almost seven years in regards to Joran van der Sloot.

      Maybe Peru can bring back the death penalty. :-O

      I just read that JVDS plead guilty and is to be sentenced Friday. Doesn’t JVDS have to serve his sentence in Peru before the US can extradite him to face extortion charges in Alabama?

    11. A Texas Grandfather on January 11th, 2012 2:11 pm

      Reports are that he pled guilty with some claims that the trama of the years of dealing with the Natalee Holloway case caused him to be unstable.

      What a crock. This guy is a dangerous physopath and should be locked up forever.

      The Flores family lawyer is asking for life without parole. I hope the judge listens to the lawyer.

    12. Tamikosmom on January 11th, 2012 3:11 pm

      I could be wrong but … I suspect that Joran van der Sloot’s utter lack of respect to the court on so many level on January 6th and today implies that his guilty plea was a given and Friday’s outcome is also a given … two givens arrived at prior to the prosecution handing down the lesser charges two months ago … lesser charges that in actuality through the application of Peruvian “reduction credits” translate into a much lighter sentence.

    13. mc on January 11th, 2012 6:47 pm

      Looks like the Dutch playboy finally copped a plea:

      It will be up to the Peruvian judeges to decide if he gets the minimum 15 years or up to the maximum 30 years in prison.

      In any case, he won’t be able to harm any women for at least 15 years!

    14. brie. on January 11th, 2012 8:34 pm

      He should be fully sentenced. Whether he admitted the crime or not. What he did to Stephanie was horrific. Brutally beatened and tortured. She was never on his computer. He killed her for money. He also brutally murdered her because he wanted Beth to think he did the same thing to Natalee.

      He will spend almost the rest of his life in prison. When Peru gets done with him he is extradited to the US, unless he gets life sentenced in Peru.

    15. barbreee on January 11th, 2012 10:04 pm

      Let him be a big shot in prison. No matter how popular he is in there, it’s still like swimming around the basement of an outhouse.

      That smirking crap, eye rolling and smart ass stuff is because he knows the whole world will have the op to see the film clips, and no matter what, he’s having to answer for his crimes, and he hates having to do it publicly.

      Its Aruba or Holland.
      Aruba is an independent country.

    17. NGBoston on January 12th, 2012 8:00 am

      Joran saying “he feels bad” for any of his actions is a complete crock (as TG points out).

      Murdering Sociopaths DON’T feel bad.

      Wherever the Sporter finishes his sentence, I doubt after all his years of incarceration his killing ways and devious, selfish mind-set will ever change.

      Even if it does, 2 beautful and innocent young women paid for Joran’s problems with their own lives and nothing can ever change that fact.

      Dave Holloway asked a Judge to officially declare Natalee as deceased in a Court of aw as no noew evidence has emerged.

      As Tamiko’s Mom points out above—Aruba will forever take action to hide all of those involved above in the 2005 Case of Murder/Disappearance of Natalee Holloway the subsequent corruption and handing of the investigation and other guil parties involved.

      One is dead and the other in jail, however the handling of Ms.Holloway’s case was unforgiveable.

      Heads up – Peruvian prison may not be as tough as we think, according to the following article. This woman married, had conjugal visits resulting in the birth of her son, participated in talent shows….all while in prison in Peru. It’s outrageous!

      Lori Berenson returns to Peru after US parole visit

      I just know some crazy woman would marry Joran behind bars. I know that this happens in American prisons too, but it just seems unfair, especially when the inmate has committed murder.. Murderers should not be afforded these priveledges, as they permanently revoked life’s priveledges for their victims.

      (I’ve registered for but have not heard anything since)

      SM: I haven’t been approving new members. What nickname did you register under and I’ll look for it (klaasend)
