Parole shouldn't even be an option for him. This whole parole thing needs to be stopped. If you are sentenced to 20 years, you serve 20, etc.

YES!!!! :woohoo:

I think this was the first case I every followed. What a sick sick man.

Anyway, the little boy that also lived with them is now a senior in HS. A friend of mine is friends with this family's cousin. Anyway, I was just asking her about him yesterday, because she also knows someone else who was in the news. I'm going to be posting a thread on it. Anyway, she said that he is very aware of Lisa and what happened. He is a wonderful normal kid. He is with his birth parents.

I agree 100% no chance for parole. Why release evil, isn't that why we have prisons in the first place?

I think this was the first case I can remember me really "knowing" about child abuse. Before that I thought it just happened to poor, uneducated people. Plus, I was only 19 and never had to know about such things, luckily. I feel cheated that the mom wasn't convicted. I remember thinking she was also to blame.

After 16 years behind bars, infamous child killer Joel Steinberg will be freed in June, even though members of the state Parole Board said yesterday he should stay in prison.

Oh gosh, I am just sick to my stomach to think this monster is getting out of prison. I guess I am really surprised that the other prisoners didn't do him in while in jail. Too bad it doesn't happen more often.

Total miscarriage of justice here. I can not believe they would let this killer out of prison. What are they thinking? I always thought that Hedda should have gone to prison with him She did nothing to stop Steinberg from killing Lisa. I used to belong to a gym that Nussbaum belonged and many times she would be on the treadmill next to me and every time I couldn't help but look at her with disgust wondering how she could live with herself, and she knew it. I could tell she probably got alot of that through the years and rightfully so IMO. Now Steinberg walks as a free man soon. Poor little Lisa, I will never forget her face.
I am disgusted with the justice system.

Child-killer Joel Steinberg returned to the city yesterday with his bushy mustache, beady eyes and reputation as a monster all still intact.
But the notorious criminal also wore a new expression - fear.

The domineering ex-lawyer looked rattled by his wild limousine ride to freedom and the crush of media and protesters that greeted him at Fortune Academy, the Harlem halfway house where he will live.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime_file/story/208020p-179356c.html

Sadistic child-slayer Joel Steinberg sauntered out of an upstate prison in style yesterday, sliding into a chauffeured stretch limo that broke speed limits and wove wildly through traffic as it raced back to New York City with a mass of media in hot pursuit.
When the worn and graying Steinberg, 63, arrived in Manhattan yesterday afternoon, he immediately was taken to the West Harlem headquarters of the Fortune Society, a prisoner-rehabilitation group, where he is expected to stay as he is counseled about re-entry into society after serving nearly 17 years for fatally beating his illegally adopted 6-year-old daughter, Lisa.

THAT'S JUST GREAT, JUST GREAT. SO WHERE DOES THE FREAK SHOW GO NOW????? HIS LAWYERS' GONNA HIDE HIM IN A LUXURY PENTHOUSE NO DOUBT. This makes me furious. Now we don't know where this SOB is gonna be.

I've always said, I'd rather know of a child molster that lives next door THAN NOT KNOW.

Knowing where these SOBS are helps the public. :furious: :furious: :furious:

Steinberg's in a Manhattan location now, according to his lawyer, Darnay Hoffman. More than likely it's another halfway house, since that's probably a condition of his release.

He was tossed out for giving an interview to New York magazine, which was against the rules of the halfway house where he was staying.

He had been hired on release from prison as an $250-per-week "intern" for a tabloid-style, cable TV show in New York called "New York Confidential." I don't know if the intern job actually came through, but it sounds like something Hoffman would arrange.

I think part of whatever income he makes has to be given to his victim's biological mother, who won a civil suit against the City of New York and Steinberg.

I seriously don't see anyone putting him up in any fancy hotel or the hotel even letting him stay if he could afford to pay. If they can't find anywhere for him to stay, he'll have to go back to prison. Maybe its what should happen.

Joel Steinberg's twisted logic prevails (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime_file/2007/10/12/2007-10-12_joel_steinbergs_twisted_logic_prevails.html)

The legal logic of twisted child killer Joel Steinberg makes perfect sense to the state's highest court.

Steinberg won a partial victory Thursday when the Court of Appeals cut $5 million from the wrongful-death bill he was handed for fatally beating his "adopted" 6-year-old daughter.

In a unanimous decision, the court agreed that Steinberg - a disbarred lawyer still on parole - couldn't be held liable for abuse inflicted on Lisa Steinberg before her death in 1987.

The ruling lets Steinberg, 66, off the hook for a third of the $15million judgment won by Lisa's biological mom from a negligence case she filed after his 1989 criminal conviction.

Yesterday, he refused to come to the door of his Harlem apartment to discuss the case.

"Read the brief," he said grumpily over the intercom when asked for his reaction. "It speaks for itself."

In his brief, he denied Lisa was abused, insisting she was a "very happy, well-adjusted, bright, socialized, popular child." He also praised his own fathering skills, claiming he served as a "responsible parent" who "took her everywhere" with him.

Steinberg had gotten Lisa as a days-old infant from her mother, Michele Launders, then an unwed Long Island teen who paid him $500 in legal fees to arrange an adoption. Instead, Steinberg took the baby home to Hedda Nussbaum, his live-in companion.

Let me just wrap my brain around this for a bit...he ended the life of an innocent child by brutalizing her over a period of months/years and also re arranged the face of his live in lover at will. Yet he was an admirable parent. Clearly he is not rehabilitated-his brief represents this...am I wrong?:behindbar

Yes she was pretty much the most hated woman of NYC back in the 80s (running neck and neck with Leonna Helmsley) But I guess since I've never been a victim of the type of abuse she sustained I cannot second guess her actions.

I understand. I lived with an abusive husband, but not for long. I just feel that if a woman wants to put up with it, that's her problem. Once the kids are involved, she needs to step up and protect them, even at the cost of her own life. Just my opinion!!!:twocents:

Our legal system never ceases to amaze me. This man's ego is so bloated, he denies abusing his child. Yet he hit her hard enough to kill her, then went out to dinner, then free-based with Hedda while the child lay dying on the floor. And he's out of prison???

He claims he was a good father. If I recall, the baby was sitting in a playpen full of filth, his bottle filled with spoiled milk, the baby tied so he couldn't get out? I can't remember, but whatever the conditions of the apartment were, they were basically inhabitable.

Joel Steinberg should never, never have gotten out of prison. Ever.

The man owes his life to whatever has allowed him to slip under the radar until his release. Is he registered as a sex offender? He is going to be a dream to try and monitor since he feels he is not guilty. Let's hope some kind of benign parole violation gets him back in jail...

I am not defending her, but, do you remember what she looke like?
She was so pathetically beaten up herself that it was hard not to feel sorry for her too.

I happen to know the family of the little brother (Travis) who went back to his biological mother after this fiasco. I am happy to say that he is happy, healthy and well adjusted.

Steinberg is a disgusting psychotic pig who should have spent his life in jail for the abuse he bestowed on the entire family.

I remember how Hedda Nussbaum looked--if you saw pictures of her before she met Steinberg, and how she looked by the time poor little Lisa died, it's a horrible transformation. She once was good looking; by the time of the murder she looked like she did 20 rounds with a prize fighter --broken up, bruised nose & face. I'm sure she was living in fear of him. Doesn't give her an excuse, but I understand how these crazy, abusive men get control of women. She had to have been paralyzed with fear of him.

They were both deep into drugs and supposedly freebasing coke the night Lisa died. Even the cops had trouble getting in when they called 911---really odd for a couple with a child in distress. Hedda was all bashed up, with clumps of hair missing, etc, etc. Drugs + spousal battery.
I wish she had taken him out, too. It's just too sad.

I found this book about her at Crime Library online. Here's a link to the online book:
http://www.crimelibrary.com/notorious_murders/family/lisa_steinberg/3.html

I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I followed this case when Lisa was murdered, and in years thereafter whenever there was news about her. It seems I remember reading that she had gotten herself straightened out and now speaks to battered women--but I can't be sure about that.

I've always felt that she put up with so much because she was so addicted to drugs and didn't want to lose her supplier. I agree, she made the choice to allow the children to suffer abuse. They both should have rotted in prison the rest of their lives. I hope this pig of an excuse for a man is never around kids or women again, but he probably will.

If I remember correctly from a book about the murder, Hedda actually did something to get Lisa in trouble with the father the night she was killed. There was speculation that she felt if she put the heat on the child it would take the heat off Hedda. He was forcing both of them, or maybe only the child, to eat tons of jalapenos or something hot so she would drink huge amounts of water because he felt she was not drinking enough (which to him was gallons). Hedda said something to indicate Lisa was not following his orders and he began beating the little girl to death. I understand she was a battered spouse but I have no sympathy for her becuase of this. I'm sorry.

Hi, Gitana,
According to the online book/article (it isn't as long as a book), the night Lisa died, Joel was going out to meet friends for dinner. Lisa had asked Hedda if Joel was going to take her(Lisa) along with him when he went out. (Sometimes he took Lisa with him). Hedda told Lisa "why don't you go ask him?" Lisa went into the room with Joel, and a while later Joel emerged carrying her, limp in his arms. Apparently this innocuous question had set him off and he had beaten her up. That's when he put her on the bathroom floor and she stayed there unconscious for 12 hours. There was also an issue about not drinking enough water per Joel's requirements, but I think it was her asking him this question that set off his anger.
Is this guy insane, or what? He should be locked up forever, in my opinion.

what is the name of the book that you read ? I would like to see if our local book store has it.

There is a book written I believe by Lisa's biological mother Michele Landers. I read it many many years ago it is called "I wish you didn't know my name". The book is out of print but used copies are available on amazon for a pretty reasonable price.

I'll have to look when I get home. I have it there. I'll let you know.
