Factually he was given 251 years, the maximum he could recieve by the judge, Allan P. Carter who tried his case (July 2001) in the abduction of Midsi Sanchez (in 2000). It has always been comon knowledge that he, an admitted pedophile was the abductor and murderer of Xiana Fairchild as well.
He's been in prison for almost 3 years now, they have had this information for over 3 years and are just now getting around to charging him for the abduction, molestation and murder of Xiana?
From an August 2001 article: "Anderson appeared in court over the following year, pleading innocent to all the charges. But in numerous tantalizing interviews with the media he gave confusing statements about the case, often implicating himself in the abduction of other young girls, including Xiana Fairchild."
He had even been to Xiana's mother's apartment and spent the night there on at least one ocassion according to old reports.
The thing that sickens me the most is that this guy confessed to the abduction and murder of Xiana in 2001 when he was arrested. He confessed and they took an additional 3 years to waste taxpayers money to "investigate" his claims? Some of Xiana's personal posessions were even found in his car!
Anderson told various news organizations that he kidnapped and killed Xiana. Kahalekulu, the girl's great-aunt, said Anderson had told her the same thing in November 2000 and had revealed details only her family and police knew.
If only her family and the police would have known this info he related that should have been enough to convict. Too bad they didn't let Juan succeed when he jumped him in the courtroom back in 2001 during the trial.
