Court Sentences Joran van der Sloot to 28 Years in Prison

January 13, 2012

Joran van der Sloot has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to the 2010 murder of Stephany Flores, a 21-year-old woman he met at a casino in Lima.

van der Sloot frequently hung his head as the charges were read in court.

From USA Today:

The court, taking into account the time he has spent in jail, says he would be eligible to be freed in June 2038.

The prosecution has requested a 30 years sentence, but the court said it had reduced it by two years because of Van der Sloot’s “sincere confession” that led to a speedy conclusion of the case.

Van der Sloot, 24, pleaded guilty on Thursday to killing of Stephany Flores, 21, last year in a rage at his hotel room in the Peruvian capital.
