    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.

Deadly Women: Monique Johnson killed her boyfriend, Tony Hayes and walked away with basically just probation

Reckless homicide? No justice here. Yes, there was a conviction, but she basically got probation. For a man’s life. He was worth more than that. Ask his family, especially his son.

Deadly Duo: Dulie Alonzo Green and Victor Pestano raped and murdered Beverly Jackson; Sentenced to life in prison

Beverly JacksonFrom Victor Pestano appeal: In 1995, the victim’s body was found in the trunk of her automobile, submerged in a canal.   An autopsy revealed that the victim died from blunt trauma to the head and from drowning.   The autopsy also revealed the presence of semen in the victim’s vagina.   Miami-Dade police detectives investigated this case for a period of time, but were unable to develop any leads or clues as to the perpetrator(s).

In 2003, the police received a call implicating Pestano and co-defendant Dulie Alonzo Green, Jr., in this crime.   The informant gave the police a sworn statement that these men had admitted to abducting, robbing, and raping the victim.   The police got a search warrant to obtain saliva samples from the men for DNA testing.

The police went to Pestano’s house to serve the warrant.   Pestano was not home when the officers arrived;  they decided to wait.   When Pestano arrived, the police identified themselves and asked Pestano to accompany them to the station.   Pestano asked to change his clothes;  thereafter, at about 6:30 a.m., he rode to the station with the officers.1  The detective did not produce the search warrant and did not rely on it.

At the station, Pestano was placed in a wired interview room.   Pestano was read his Miranda rights.   He signed a written waiver and consented to providing a DNA sample.   At about 7:40 a.m., the police began interrogating Pestano and the co-defendant separately.   Each man gave opposing accounts of the events:  each said that he picked the other man up in a car with an unknown female passenger in the front seat.   Each claimed he had sex with the female in exchange for the other man letting her go;  each said he left, leaving her with the other man.

Pestano asked to speak with Dulie Green.   The police permitted the men to speak to each other.   They were placed in a room together;  their conversation was video and audio taped.   The men agreed to a version of the story that placed the blame on a third person, who was deceased.   They agreed to say that they left the victim alone with the third person.

After the co-defendants conferred, they were again interviewed separately.   Pestano was re-advised of his Miranda rights.   After further interrogation, Pestano gave a sworn statement.   The statement contained Pestano’s original statement and the purportedly “true” version:  The co-defendants were walking with a third man.   The third man jumped into the woman’s car and ordered them to get in front.   The three men drove to the park where the co-defendants got out of the car.   Thereafter, the third man got out of the car and said the victim had agreed to have sex with them.   The co-defendants then departed, leaving the victim with the third man.   At that point, the interrogation concluded.

Prior to trial, Pestano filed a motion to suppress or exclude the video/audio tape of the conversation between the co-defendants, a motion to suppress or exclude the confession, and a motion to suppress/exclude the statements and evidence based on an unlawful arrest.   At the hearing on the motions, the court found that Pestano was not arrested when he was picked up at his house, and denied the latter motion accordingly.   The court denied the motion to suppress the videotaped conversation on the grounds that there was no expectation of privacy in a police interview room and that the admission of the tape did not deprive Pestano of his right of confrontation.

At trial, the state presented DNA evidence, physical evidence from the crime scene and forensic evidence regarding the murder.   Pestano’s defense was that he merely had consensual sex with the victim.   Pestano requested that the court give an independent act jury instruction.   The court declined the request.   The jury convicted defendant as charged, without a firearm.
