YES! I am so glad, I knew his hearing was coming up. Good News.

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.

He is a wonderful normal kid. He is with his birth parents.Thanks! It's SO good to hear that. I've always wondered about him, and no case updates through the years really mentioned him.

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

The bad news is, he is scheduled to be released anyway, June 30th.

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.
