Default Inside Notorious Prisons [that] van der Sloot Faces

Lawyer Who's Been in One Describes Danger to the Max for Inmates, Corruption, and Extremely Unsanitary Conditions
Quote:
Peruvian police hustled Joran van der Sloot through a gauntlet of photographers and angry bystanders Friday into a prison system observers call on of the world's worst.
The 22-year-old Dutchman is charged with murdering Peruvian business student Stephany Flores, 21, in his Lima hotel room May 30.

He's also the chief suspect in the 2005 disappearance in Aruba of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway - but he's never been charged.


Quote:
Van der Sloot was taken to the Miguel Castro Castro prison on the outskirts of Lima where, reports CBS News Correspondent Elaine Quijano, he was strip-searched, X-rayed and given a medical exam.

That facility, observes CBS News legal analyst Trent Copeland, is "a place with poor nutrition, lack of sanitation, overcrowding -- immense overcrowding, and where epidemic levels of HIV and tuberculosis are known to exist."

Van der Sloot is being kept from the prison's general population, and is said to fear for his life.
Quote:
"I'm not certain," Copeland says, "van der Sloot can do anything to assure himself that he's gonna survive this Peruvian prison system. … So, if he's concerned about this, I think the only thing that he can do to protect himself is to stay low and keep himself out of harm's way."

International defense attorney Michael Griffith has been inside another prison in Peru - one where, experts say, van der Sloot could well land, and described ultra-dangerous, hideous conditions to "Early Show" co-anchor Erica Hill Tuesday, saying flat-out he'd "be surprised" if van der Sloot survives to the end of his sentence.

Griffith had a client in another Lurigancho Prison.

"The prison (currently housing van der Sloot) is one of the toughest prisons, along with Lurigancho," Griffith says. "I've been in prisons in over two dozen countries. In fact, I was the lawyer for Billy Hayes from the movie 'Midnight Express,' and the Turkish prison is a Ritz-Carlton compared to this.
Quote:
There's about 10,000 prisoners for 3,000 spaces. This and another prison where he's gonna go afterwards, Lurigancho, has dormitories of about 600 prisoners in each. The showers run once a week for 15 minutes. There's only 12 showers. They're in rooms of about 25-by-15 (feet) with about 35 prisoners. About seven or eight sleep on the floor. There's a hole for a toilet.

"And it's a very, very brutal place."

Can van der Sloot live out his sentence, assuming he's convicted and however long it runs?
Quote:
"It's gonna be really tough. In Miguel Castro Castro, believe it or not, the first day the warden took his position there about a year or two ago, he was murdered.
Sometimes karma and God work hand in hand...

I am truly saddened that Aruba couldn't, or wouldn't, gather enough to put him in prison for the Holloway murder. I am sorry for his latest victim and her family. I hope the rest of his life is hell on earth and he fears every waking second the way those two beautiful young ladies feared their last.

He'll probably be sent to Lurigancho once his is convicted....the place is literally hell on earth. And given the fact all Peru is up in arms about this case, his odds of surviving any length of time in gen pop is remote. If the authorities there weren't determined to get a conviction on record he probably would be dead already.



They want his blood.....if he didn't richly deserve it, I'd feel sorry for him.

Thanks for the welcome! Thankfully....no. Unlike van der slut I know better than to go to places whose inhabitants are already suspicious of the motives of white people and start committing crimes. I've just been doing lots of reading since that bastard killed poor Stephany.

Here is an account from someone who went to visit:

There's a problem with your thread title. 'T'ain't his face he has to worry about in these prisons.

In case you are on the young side, here's a reminder of another killer of women who ended up in a prison survival mode:
Warning: some of the following video is grotesque:

Had to stop at the 4:20 mark of the 2nd video. He deserved what he got, sorry to say. Sick bastard. The boy from Aruba will deserve his fate too.

It is hard to know that these creatures exist in our society and are spawned from poverty and torture. But when the perpetrator is a flashy playboy, it makes it all the more monstrous some how.
