18 year old Austin Sigg pleads guilty in the death and dismemberment of Jessica Ridgeway. Sigg faces a minimum sentence of 40 years in prison with the possibility of parole; however, was not eligible for the death penalty because he committed his heinous crimes at the age of 17. At the very least, the family of Jessica Ridgeway will at least be spared the ordeal of a trial and have to live again through the viscous and unspeakable murder of their daughter.
Honestly, there is no punishment that could be given to this piece of human waste other than the death penalty.
A Colorado teen charged with kidnapping and killing a 10-year-old girl pleaded guilty Tuesday to all 15 charges against him, against the advice of his attorneys.
Austin Sigg, 18, could be sent to prison for the rest of his life for the slaying of Jessica Ridgeway in Westminster nearly a year ago. Jessica was abducted while walking to school, and her disappearance panicked thousands of residents in Denver’s western suburbs.
Sigg also pleaded guilty Tuesday to a May 2012 attack on a 22-year-old jogger at a lake in Jessica’s neighborhood.
Prosecutors said Sigg entered the pleas because of overwhelming evidence against him. His trial would have started Thursday.
