Current Events: Scott Peterson Death Penalty Sentence

Scott Peterson has been sentenced to Death, confirmed on December 13th, 2004.

This morning I found out that the jury had finally made a decision to decide the fate of Scott Peterson, the man that was charged with First and Second Degree murder for killing his wife and unborn son, Conner. Anticipating the sentencing verdict of the trial that happened a 1:30pm earlier this afternoon, I was figdeting and restless as the announcement was being delayed. Having waited for 2 whole years for this information, it was a bit intimidating to be waiting for this whole thing to be over. Once hearing his verdict, being the Death Penalty, my entire class was in shock. Some weren't surprised, but still silence fell amongst everyone.

My heart goes out to Laci and her son Conner, as well as the Rocha family. It had been a horrible, morbid, and emotional time for everyone -- including those that have been following through with this case from the very beginning and have grown emotionally attached to Laci's story. I just hope that wherever Laci and Conner are, that they're at peace. And I hope that the Rocha family can easily move on, knowing that their daughter and grandson are looking down on them, smiling as this verdict had been read.

♥ R.I.P. Laci and Conner ♥
