the real life criminal
30 September 2015 | by avendittiSee all my reviews

To be honest, I never watched the movie because I, for about four years was in regular contact with the convicted perpetrator of the crimes.

As a Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania I did not prosecute him for the crimes which eventually led him to a miserable life on death row with the PA Department of Corrections. However, being an attorney who represented the DOC and its employees, I got to meet many notorious and formerly notorious criminals throughout the years. Most had become bored of being permanent guests of the state and manufactured tales of beating, torture, and other nonsense which ultimately led to civil law suits against the Commonwealth. That's where I stepped in, in defense of the state.

I had the pleasure of meeting the bad guy in this film on several occasions, mostly during depositions and of course, his trial. He is the convicted rapist/murderer depicted in the movie version of the events.

I hate to disappoint but in real life he is neither intelligent, cunning, wily, or even the slightest bit clever. He is a 5 foot, 2 inch tall, 150 pound waste of air who is adept at lying and getting over in the strict confines of the Pennsylvania penal system. in 2008 he accused three corrections officers of randomly beating him and then sued them. That's where I became acquainted with him. In the subsequent five years he represented himself and persistently filed frivolous motion after frivolous motion causing the tax payers of PA more and more money. We finally tried the case in federal court after he was appointed volunteer lawyers from a huge firm in Philadelphia.

Justice once again prevailed but at the cost of probably another million dollars and he lost his law suit. However, after spending several million just to prosecute him, house him, and deal with his endless appeals to overturn his death sentences, he succeeded in torturing three innocent family men who happened to work for the DOC and spend another fortune in PA taxpayers' money defending the suit.

There is no doubt that he will fry in Hell, when he gets there. His goal is to bankrupt the state on the way. The Prison Litigation Reform Act has failed again and must be redressed. The whole experience as a newer lawyer was incredible but at what cost? Anyway, the real guy who is convicted of the murders depicted in this film is safely tucked away in jail for the rest of his life
