    Joran van der Sloot Charged in Peruvian Woman's Slaying

    CNN/KTLA News 3:33 a.m. EDT, September 1, 2011

    LIMA, Peru -- Peruvian authorities have charged Joran van der Sloot with murder in the case of the death of a Peruvian woman.
    Van der Sloot was arrested in June of last year, but was not formally charged until Thursday.

    Prosecutors are asking for a 30-year prison sentence and a restitution of $73,000 to the family of Stephany Flores. They also charged van der Sloot with theft.

    Charged alongside van der Sloot were three Peruvian drivers who allegedly helped him flee Peru into Chile. Prosecutors want five-year prison sentences for them and fines of about $1,800.
    Van der Sloot is now charged with the May 2010 killing of Flores, who was found dead in his Lima hotel room. Police say van der Sloot took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.

    Earlier this month, Flores' family urged prosecutors to file their case, warning that van der Sloot could be released by December unless the case goes ahead. Under Peruvian law, if a suspect's trial doesn't begin within 18 months of his arrest, he is set free.

    Investigators delivered their case file to prosecutors in June for a decision on charges.

    No date has been set for trial.

    Van der Sloot's attorney said that the defense was expecting the charges to be filed, given the high-profile nature of the case.

    "We think 30 years is too much for this crime since it was an isolated incident without any further acts of violence," Luis Jimenez Navarro said. "We have had cases in Peru under similar circumstances that have gotten less than 25 years."

    The next stage is a hearing in about 15 days where the defense will respond to the charges, Jimenez said.

    Van der Sloot was once the prime suspect in the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, who vanished while on a graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba. He was arrested twice but never charged in connection with Holloway's disappearance, which remains unsolved.
    An ISOLATED INCIDENT?!?!?! Yea, maybe in Peru. I guess that's what he is going on.....He is out of control. I would bet a large sum of money that he has done this multiple times before and also probably helped friends do it as well. Since they are always so eager to help him cover this shit up!!

    He is a POS. I saw that undercover thing his "friend" did with him a few years ago where the guy got him talking about Natalie. He said everything that happened, and how he and friend dumped the body.....

    Scumbag.

    And "Without further acts of violence"... only because they caught him a few days later!!!!
    ~Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    Another update (horribly translated, I tried to make it readable):


    AMSTERDAM - Financial problems seem Joran to play tricks. If he has no protection in the jail can pay, he runs great risks.


    Sixteen months after the Peruvian girl Stephany Flores was found dead in hotel room of Joran van der Sloot, the trial of the Dutchman began last week in Lima. The interest of the Peruvian media was great, but journalists from the U.S. and the Netherlands did not turn up en masse. Like Joran and his lawyer also. Van der Sloot was in jail and his lawyer had just submitted a written defense piece. I myself flew to Lima.
    Although public interest in the matter outside Peru is reduced, the criminal case because more and more interesting. Happening behind the scenes so strange. Unlike in the Netherlands have relatives in Peru or the legal ability to influence the judicial process. The influential family Stephany Flores grabbed that opportunity with both hands. In a fiery speech demanding the family lawyer that the charges against Van der Sloot is significantly increased. He believes that the accusation does not read "murder followed by theft," but "robbery followed by murder." Apparently a subtle difference, but for Joran determines the rest of his life.
    The accusation that the Flores family wants to see, implied that Van der Sloot was planning to rob Stephany Flores. To escape possible, he would have killed her afterwards. On this charge, in Dutch law similar to the crime of "qualified homicide", is in Peru as in our country than a life sentence.
    The three female judges heard the story of the lawyer and benevolently decided last Friday that the prosecution case against Van der Sloot indeed re-evaluate. The result is that the progress of the process is delayed for months. This makes the situation even Joran van der Sloot penibeler it already was. But where was his lawyer on this rather crucial first hearing? And why was Joran in the week before the trial suddenly transferred to another prison wing?
    After the meeting I drove to the Castro Prison and spoke with Van der Sloot. He confirmed now sit between Peruvian prisoners. After his transfer he had to sleep one night in a corridor because of the overcrowded jail is no place for him. Although Van der Sloot did not want to say, financial problems seem to play tricks on him severely. Prisoners with money making in Peru's prisons were in charge. If Van der Sloot can afford no more protection, he runs great risks. Earlier, the father of Stephany Flores hinted that fellow prisoners he would set against Van der Sloot.
    That Joran is little new lawyer for his effort, like a money issue. According to the former lawyer of Van der Sloot, Mr. Maximo Altez, his confrere not even the criminal file, and he did not dare to take on the powerful family Flores. Joran himself still thinks he has a few years comes from the cell, but it seems more likely that the prediction of the father of Stephany Flores convenience. Revenge is a dish that is served ice cold in Peru.

    Short version: The trial began last week. poor Joran has run out of money and can no longer pay for protection. Which means he will likely be raped and/or beaten, possibly killed. He has been moved to an overcrowded prison wing.
    He will likely get the maximum sentence of life in prison, although he's convinced he will only get a few years.

    This is the prison he is being transferred to - Piedras Gordas. It looks like a pretty tough, spartan place:

    Van der Sloot sues Chile over his extradition to Peru for murder trial

    (CNN) -- The Dutch man suspected in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway has sued the Chilean government for more than $13 million, alleging his human rights were violated when Chile extradited him last year to Peru to face charges in the death of a Peruvian woman.

    "The lawsuit is against the Chilean government, for having violated Joran van der Sloot's basic human rights," his Peruvian lawyer Aldo Cotrina told In Session. The suit was filed September 4 with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington.

    "Maybe they won't accept my analysis in Peru, because they feel this is the way things have always been done," said Cotrina, who is based in New York. "But I believe there are universal human rights and we have to respect those rights. We can't say that because someone is accused of killing a person, you can violate all their rights."

    Cotrina said van der Sloot's former attorney, Maximo Altez, contacted him in July 2010 about the complaint, and the two men met the following month to begin researching grounds for the lawsuit on the basis of their claim that van der Sloot's human rights had been violated in June 2010, when Chile expelled him to Peru.

    Cotrina said he expects to complete next week a similar document, to be filed against the government of Peru.

    He is accused of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room last year. Police say he took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.

    The 13-page lawsuit says an international arrest warrant had not been filed against van der Sloot, but he was arrested by Chilean authorities anyway.

    But documents from Peru's Ministry of Interior indicate that the Peruvian police had requested his arrest; Interpol authorities in Chile and Peru were contacted, as was Chile's Ministry of Interior.

    The lawsuit further alleges that van der Sloot was not given enough time to appeal his expulsion from Chile, and that that failure was a violation of his basic human rights.

    But correspondence between Chile's Ministry of Interior and Peru's Ministry of Interior indicates that officials from both ministries considered that van der Sloot's expulsion was legal under the Southern Common Market (Mercosur) treaty, which allows for international cooperation in matters of criminal activity. The documents were obtained by In Session on TruTV, which is a sister network to CNN.

    The resolution to expel van der Sloot from Chile, which was approved by the Chilean government, cites a police report as having been filed on May 13, 2010. Van der Sloot's lawyer points out that his client did not even enter Chile until May 31. The lawsuit refers to the apparent typo as evidence that Chilean and Peruvian officials were violating the Dutch man's rights.

    The lawsuit adds that Chilean police did not give van der Sloot the opportunity to call or use a computer to contact relatives, did not give him legal representation and did not give him a translator -- all putative violations of his rights.

    Interpol documents obtained by In Session indicate that van der Sloot voluntarily gave a statement in English to Chilean police in which he said that he and Flores had been attacked in Lima and that he fled fearing for his life.

    Van der Sloot was once the prime suspect in the disappearance of Holloway, the Alabama teenager who vanished in May 2005 while on a graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba. He was arrested twice but never charged in connection with Holloway's disappearance, which remains unsolved.

    He also faces extradition charges to the United States. In June 2010, a federal grand jury in Alabama indicted van der Sloot on charges of wire fraud and extortion after allegations surfaced that he tried to extort $250,000 from Holloway's mother. He was given $25,000, and authorities believe he used that money to travel to Peru and participate in a poker tournament, where he met Flores.

    Natalee Holloway suspect Joran van der Sloot admits killing woman in Peru

    LIMA ó Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty to murder Wednesday in the killing of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman.

    The plea came nearly seven years after he became the prime suspect in the unsolved disappearance of an American teenager on holiday in Aruba.

    Van der Sloot, who was arrested but not charged in the 2005 disappearance of 19-year-old Natalee Holloway on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba, admitted killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room on May 30, 2010, after the two left a casino together in the day's wee hours.

    The slaying happened five years to the day after Holloway's disappearance, an Alabama woman who was celebrating her high school graduation in Aruba and was seen leaving a nightclub with van der Sloot. Her body has never been found.

    Van der Sloot said on Friday he would "sincerely confess" to killing Flores in a plea strategy aimed at reducing his eventual prison sentence, prompting judges to suspend the trial until Wednesday.

    Natalee Holloway suspect to begin murder trial

    Under Peruvian law, a prison term for a "sincere confession" to a murder is normally much shorter than one for an outright guilty plea. Prosecutors have said van der Sloot robbed and killed Flores before fleeing the scene of a crime to Chile.

    But on the first day of his trial in Lima on Friday, he told the court he should not be charged with aggravating circumstances of the murder that could lengthen his sentence.

    The 24-year-old Dutch citizen had repeatedly shaken his head as the prosecutor described for the judges how van der Sloot allegedly "brutally" beat and strangled the victim in his Lima hotel room, intending to rob her.

    A "sincere confession" to the judges means the trial would quickly enter a sentencing phase and he could spend less than a decade behind bars.

    Women judges biased?
    The defense has complained that the panel of three judges is made up exclusively of women and might be biased against him.

    Peruvian prosecutors were initially expected to try for a sentence of life in prison against van der Sloot. But they had to scale back their plans and are expected to ask for a 30-year term because of sentencing guidelines for murders in which robbery could be the primary motive. The victim's family wants a life sentence.

    Trial begins as shamans perform a 'spiritual punishment'

    Van der Sloot has told police he strangled Flores, a skilled poker player and the daughter of a wealthy businessman, after he found her looking at his laptop computer in his hotel room. The laptop contained emails about Holloway's death.

    Van der Sloot fled to Chile after Flores' death but was arrested there and returned to Peru for questioning.

    Van der Sloot was arrested twice in the Holloway case but he was never charged due to a lack of evidence. Holloway's family has criticized Dutch authorities for not making more progress in the case.

    Joran van der Sloot jailed for 28 YEARS after murdering female business student, 21, he met in Peru casino

    Joran van der Sloot was today jailed for 28 years for murdering a young woman he met at a casino.

    The 24-year-old Dutch citizen pleaded guilty two days ago to killing business student Stephany Flores, 21, in Lima, Peru, in a fit of rage in May 2010, after earlier meeting her in a casino.

    His sentencing by a Peruvian court on Friday comes as the family of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway seek to have him prosecuted in America over her disappearance seven years ago.



    The court also ordered him to pay $75,000 in reparations to the devastated family of Miss Flores.

    He can still appeal the conviction and sentence - his first ever, despite prosecutor claims that he was involved in Miss Holloway's apparent death on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba.

    Under Peru's penal system, Van der Sloot could become eligible for parole after serving half of the sentence with good behaviour, including work and study.
    The prosecution had sought a 30-year sentence for first-degree murder and theft, so the courtís decision represents what is close to the perfect outcome for them.

    Natalee Holloway was declared dead by an Alabama court yesterday. I hope her body or some part of her remains are found someday, because I know her parents will always wonder. More than that, I hope this worthless piece of shit van der Sloot also pays for what he did to her one day.
