3 Strikes and you’re out

SACRAMENTO — An appeals court has upheld a life sentence given to a Gridley man who looted an evacuated home during the Oroville Dam spillway crisis in 2017.

A three-justice panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled unanimously Wednesday that 39-year-old John Beebe Jr. was appropriately sentenced to 30 years to life in prison under California’s Three Strikes law.

    Glad to hear justice prevailed. That was an intense time for folks downstream of the dam. I’ve been there and the dam is huge; I would have skeedaddled out of there too. This f**k deserves that sentence.

    A 39 year old crankster with seven prior strike convictions who was apparently still living with his mommy. Then he tries to cop a lighter sentence by looking for sympathy because he’s got a two year old kid.
    This guy’s lower than snake shit in a wheel track.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
