17 Year Old Austin Sigg Charged as Adult with 17 Counts Including Felony Murder, Kidnapping & Sexual Assault in Death of Jessica Rideway and Attempted Kidnapping in Ketner Lake Earlier this Year

 

Sorry, 17 year old’s need to face the death penalty as well.

Austin Sigg, the 17 year old teenager who confessed to the death of 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway, has been charged as an adult. Austin Sigg has been charged with 17 different counts that include felony murder, kidnapping and sexual assault. Eleven of the counts are related to 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway that include, murder in the first degree, two counts of second-degree kidnapping, robbery and sexual assault on a child.

Sigg also faces an additional six charges relating to an attempted kidnapping of a 22 year old female jogger in Ketner Lake earlier this year. In this case, Sigg is charged with attempted murder in the first degree, attempted sexual assault and attempted second-degree kidnapping.

The teenager accused in the kidnapping and murder of Jessica Ridgeway has been charged with 17 different counts including felony murder, kidnapping and sexual assault.

Austin Sigg, 17, made his first court appearance in Jefferson County court Tuesday morning.

He will be charged as an adult in the case.

Sigg faces a total of 11 charges directly related to Jessica Ridgeway’s death.  They include: four counts of murder in the first degree, two counts of second-degree kidnapping, robbery and sexual assault on a child.

Austin Sigg will be charged as an adult; however, sadly he will not face the death penalty thanks to the Supreme Court ruling  in Roper v. Simmons that the death penalty was cruel and unusual for people who committed crimes while under the age of 18. Really, because of months we cannot stick a needle in a killers arm? If there was ever a case that cried out for the death penalty, it was the heinous kidnapping, sexual assault, murder and dismembering her body.

Sorry, but when a person hits the trifecta of kidnapping, murder and dismemberment, you should not be allowed to live no matter how old you are. Today, 15 year old’s are no different from 18 year old’s. We need to ask ourselves as a society, who do our laws protect? Are you kidding me that we let this twisted, evil SOB live!

      I am struck by the lack of a soul in that kid’s eyes–to be only 17 and to be at the point where he commits such heinous acts…makes you wonder.. I think the right decision was made to try him as an adult.

      Liberal ideas all over the Supreme Court. Teenagers have been given a pass on responsibility and consequences for their acts. It is no suprise that we have them doing acts like this. They know that most of the time they will have little or no punishment.

      Put the needle in this guys arm and don’t spend any money keeping him in a prison.

      He will not get a pass. He will die in prison never seeing the light of day or freedom again. If he doesn’t die from old age or sickness, the other inmates will kill him for what he did to a child. Clearly you don’t understand that the punishment of life imprisonment is far harsher than death. The death penalty is a good way to rid the earth of evil like him, but life imprisonment is a better way to torture evil like him.
