A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing – J. Richardson

It has been only a few years since the sentencing of J. Richardson and Jeremy Steinke (Steinke is currently in prison with possibility for parole in twenty-five years) for their participation in The Richardson Family Murders.  But sooner than expected, she is now eligible for supervised trips away from the psychiatric institute where she is serving part of her sentencing.

J. Richardson, as we know, was sentenced to the maximum penalty of ten years imprisonment for three counts of first-degree murder, which includes 4 years in a psychiatric institute and 4 and a half years of conditional supervision in the community. Overall, her sentence seems like a slap on the wrist for the devastating effect her crime caused.

I cannot imagine that the community will accept the idea of her return, because, as the story goes, she never showed any remorse for her actions. Even so, her crime cannot be easily forgotten by anyone who lived to see the aftermath. Only time will tell whether or not the world will be able to forgive and forget what this Runaway Devil did.

    I like that, from what I have seen, it is unanimous that the public does not want her back. I haven’t seen a single comment that wanted to give her any slack.

    I wonder if when she gets released if people will post her name and picture all over the place so she’ll never get a job. I think there should be a good chance that she’ll move away though, it would be difficult to remain here after that.
