    She faces life in prison without the possibility of parole and is scheduled for sentencing June 14.

    I guess we will have to wait until her sentencing to know for sure. I have a feeling it will be LWOP. It better be!!!!
    Robert Harrod will be found.

    All my posts are MOO and nothing but MOO!!!!

    MH had the DP hanging over her head...she pled guilty to save her own life. I do believe her sentence will be LWOP


    Melissa Huckaby, 29, entered the plea in San Joaquin County Superior Court to a charge of first-degree murder with a special circumstance of kidnapping. As part of a deal with prosecutors, all other charges — including two involving rape and lewd or lascivious conduct with a child under 14 — were dropped, according to court spokeswoman Sharon Morris.
    The surprise plea came during what was scheduled to be a routine pretrial hearing Monday morning. The initial charges in the grand jury indictment last year would have made her eligible for the death penalty if convicted. Her trial had been set to begin in October.

    Morris said Huckaby now faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison without the possibility of parole when she's sentenced June 14.

    Seems as part of the plea deal the other charges were dropped. What I don't understand is where they state above, she faces 25-life without the possibility of parole...I do think the sentence is stated wrong above and should reflect a LWOP sentence...not a 25 to LWOP..media needs to do their homework better if we are to go off what they say...JMHO

    Either way, Sandra's family doesn't have to sit through the gory details of Sandra's demise..Poor innocent child suffered a sadistic, brutal death and how she must have suffered in her last moments..

    The DP would be too kind, no suffering involved but doing LWOP, MH will not be safe in her environment. Other inmates will be enraged at what she's done to Sandra...

    MH cannot be kept in PC for her entire sentence, can she???

    Justice is coming Sandra....

    I believe that she acted alone. If she had an accomplice, she would have outed him/her by now. She is a coward IMO and would not face this alone if there was any other scapegoat to shoulder any of the blame.

    I hope that she gets LWOP and that she is thrown into general population as soon as possible.

    on our local Sacramento news last nigt, they said that they had spoken to Sandra's family and they stated that they wished that they could go on the record and give an interview right now, but have to wait until the gag order is lifted. so it looks like we will get to hear their thoughts on the plea etc.

    I think what it means is that there is the possibility of anything from as little as 25 years to the maximum of LWOP, or anything in between. She hasn't been sentenced yet, but that is the range of possibilities. Kind of like how for armed robbery you might be facing 10-25 years (or whatever...I just made that up). IOW, I don't think LWOP is a given yet. Although I'll bet anything that's what she gets.

    I'm totally okay with that. I think that would be worse than the DP. And she totally deserves every minute of it.

    Please help me understand,
    Which is it?
    You read it right. 25 to life. She is not able for parole till at least 25 has been served.
    Also I think she did actually commite this craime by her self. Look at how Big she is and how small Sandra was. It would not take much to drug and kill and place in a suitcase.

    She is sick
    TYBEE U WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND LOVED.

    I was stunned to read this today...and it wasnt even headlined anywhere I could find.

    I hope that this represents some kind of justice-just reading what the Criminologists reported about the crime itself (a woman drugging, raping and killing someone elses child) and the fact that it is "unheard" of didnt bring me too much solace.

    I will say this-I am irritated by the rationalizations being offered by the press including that this prevents the family from having to relive the crime and it's details through the years long appeals process if she had received the DP.

    I think that is incredibly patronizing. Mark Klaas has been willing to soldier through-and I suspect that Sandra's family would have as well....

    Sandra Cantu's family and prosecutors oppose lifting gag order & unsealing case docs

    Tracy Press, 5-13-10: Cantu Family & Now DA Oppose Case Publicity.

    The family of murder victim Sandra Cantu will oppose lifting a gag order and unsealing court records — and in a swift reversal — the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s office will now do the same.

    On Wednesday, three news companies, the Associated Press, The Record in Stockton, and the Bay Area News Group filed a motion with Judge Linda Lofthus to unseal records and allow people involved in the case to talk about it publicly.

    Today, D.A. Jim Willett decided prosecutors will side with Sandra’s family to keep documents sealed and keep the gag order in place.

    A hearing on the gag order and seal is scheduled for May 24.

    Oh, Adnoid and his long memory........

    I was one of the "There Had To Be A Man Involved, Too" posters at the beginning of this case.

    I just re-read a poll/thread from a year or so ago, where I wrote that I "couldn't fathom" that a woman would rape, torture and murder another's child on her own accord, and that I was sure there had to be a man behind it. Given the fact that Melissa had a daughter of her own, it just made it harder for me to understand.

    It was my belief at the time, that Melissa must have done the actual kidnapping, while a male acquaintance must have committed the rape, torture, and murder.

    In the time since, I have come to realize that Evil comes in all colors, sizes, shapes, ages, sexual orientations, and genders.

    I still believe that Melissa Huckaby should die by the Death Penalty.

    May Sandra Cantu's family finally find some peace. They are still in my prayers.
    .... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

    Hello WS

    Does anyone have any insight into whether or not the gag order will be lifted?

    TIA.
