    Karr is offered freedom as part of plea deal
    POSTED: 5:15 a.m. EDT, September 21, 2006

    SANTA ROSA, California (AP) -- One-time JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr was offered a plea deal Tuesday on child pornography charges that would free him on probation.

    Assistant District Attorney Joann Risse said prosecutors would waive three of the five child pornography possession charges against him if he pleaded guilty on two remaining charges.

    Karr, 41, would get credit for time served and would be placed on probation for three years. He also would be required to register as a sex offender.
    Defense lawyer Robert Amparan said that he would discuss the deal with Karr but that he still believes his client is innocent.

    Amparan said the public had received a "false picture" of Karr, whom he described as a "Southern gentleman with a sense of humor."WHAT!!

    Karr's bail was set at $200,000 after Judge Cerena Wong called him a flight risk. Karr spent several months in the Sonoma County jail in 2001 awaiting trial on the child porn charges and fled after being released.

    Amparan would not say whether his client could afford bail but said Karr would remain behind bars for now.

    Karr, a schoolteacher, was arrested August 16 after making phone calls and writing e-mails suggesting he killed Ramsey, a 6-year-old beauty queen, in her Boulder, Colorado, home in December 1996. He was returned to the U.S. from Thailand only to have the Ramsey case collapse.

    DNA tests failed to connect Karr to the crime, and investigators had no evidence he was in Boulder at the time of the slaying.

    Perhaps they're offering the deal because they lost some of the evidence and don't have enough to go to trial? Evidently they somehow lost his computer with all of the child porn on it. http://news.scotsman.com/internation...?id=1397222006

    WTF? Apparently the guy didn't murder JBR, but come on, he is a freaking pedophile, and it makes me sick to my stomach to know that this pervert is going to be out on the streets. It's only a matter of time before he hurts a child, and I hope that the incompetent assholes that screwed this up realize they are responsible for him being on the street. He left the freaking country while waiting trial on charges and that is why he was in freaking Thailand. Mark my words, this man is a time bomb.
    THE EASIEST WAY OUT IS THROUGH....
