    Thanks for the link. I wonder if the public can go to his sentencing to voice outrage? Does anyone think an online petition will help or is this as good as done because he made a deal?

    Roselvr, I wish people would hound the prosecutors office until they were sick of hearing from us that 10 years is not enough time to serve for murdering Brendan. On-line petition sounds like a good idea. imo

    Is there anyone in Camden County that wants to set up an online petition? I'm in the next county over, have never set one up. I can try if needed if someone wants to write the facts up. I don't have time to throw something together.

    Courier Post will live stream if the court grants permission. I imagine only Brendan's family and the murderer's family will be allowed to make victim impact statements.

    Do you think this could work? I would happily sign the petition but I just don't think it's going to change anything. He has already testified under oath.

    The question is, if he was to deny it to public or at sentencing and say he just said that to get out of it, would that cancel his plea deal?

    Also, remember. He will likely only serve 7 years.

    Sickening.

    I watched this interview with DJ's lawyer.

    He elaborated the admission to causing his death doesn't provide as much closure as some might think as he only admitted to being reckless that he caused his son's death, not that he admitted to murder.

    Here's a link:

    Also, the judge has discretion to add more time. Let's hope for that.

    Courier-Post will be streaming the sentencing live on Facebook at 1:30pm EDT. It's going to be a heartbreaking day. I hope Sam and other family lashes out at him in victim impact statement.

    The Courier-Post will have live coverage of David "DJ" Creato Jr.'s sentencing; watch beginning at 1:30 Friday on Facebook.com/CourierPost.
    CAMDEN - The tragic odyssey that began nearly two years ago with a Westmont dad reporting his 3-year-old son missing will end in a courtroom Friday as the father is sentenced in the boy's death.
    David "DJ" Creato Jr. pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in his son Brendan's death on Aug. 23. Under terms of the agreement, Creato faces a 10-year prison term.

    The guilty plea came just weeks before Creato's second murder trial was set to begin.
    Superior Court Judge John T. Kelley declared a mistrial in May after jurors were unable to agree on a verdict in the circumstantial case. The medical examiner was unable to determine how Brendan was killed despite multiple autopsies.
    During the trial, visitors traveled to the spot where Brendan's body was found in Cooper River Park, several blocks from his father's home. The prosecutor pointed out that the boy was found with clean socks.
    Creato's obsessive jealousy over a teen girlfriend who resented his son drove him to murder, the prosecution argued throughout the trial.
    The girlfriend, Julia Stensky, testified during Creato's trial and some of the 9,000-plus text messages the pair exchanged were read in court.
    The Creato case generated national attention and was live streamed on court websites and inspired social-media discussion groups.

    Using your post because of the link.

    I don't understand why DJ's dad is going to look for the real killer when DJ admitted he depraved Brendan of oxygen. Someone needs to wake this family up and look into their son's eyes and question him. They are so in denial! jmo

    I can't imagine what they go thru. They knew their son until the texts with the GF sent him over the edge. I hope in time they will come to terms with everything.

    David Creato Sr. has passed:

    'I know you are finally at peace with Brendan'

    Anyone hear how DJ the piece of remorseless trash is hopefully rotting in prison? Won't be long and he will be out. I'll never forget this trial. I'll never understand the two jurors who voted not guilty.

    While his sentence was 10 years for causing Brendan’s death, it is possible Creato could be out in as little as six years and 10 months due to time-served and parole. The state Department of Corrections has set a parole date of July 10, 2024.

    David “DJ” Creato is serving his manslaughter prison sentence for the death of his three-year old son at the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility, an assignment that has caused a bit of a stir on social media. It’s partly about the word “youth” in the prison’s title and what that seems to imply.

    I was thinking, his dad's death was probably suicide.
