CRAIG ANDREW LEDBETTER. SHOULD BE WHIPPED TOO.
An elderly woman was severely injured during a bizarre attack by the scumbag piece of excrement pictured above.
This weird conehead should experience pain commensurate with that which he brought to his elderly neighbor.
SANTA ANA – A 52-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Friday for attacking his neighbor and her small dog as they walked in Irvine last year.
Craig Andrew Ledbetter of Irvine pleaded guilty to two felony counts of attempted murder and elder abuse, and two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and resisting an officer, according to the Orange County Dsistrict Attorney’s Office.
On Sept. 29, 2015, the woman, who was 75 at the time, was walking her family’s mini poodle on Rockwood in the Woodbridge community at about 2:45 p.m., when a screaming and naked Ledbetter ran up to her and knocked her to the groud, authorities said.
Prosecutors said Ledbetter got on top of the victim and punched her in the face and chest. He then stood up and repeatedly kicked her in the head. He took the dog by the leash and swung the dog over his shoulder.
Witnesses called 911 and police responded to the scene. Officers had to use a Taser to subde Ledbetter and arrest him, authorities said.
The victim suffered serious injuries, including bleeding in the brain, a dislocated left arm and eye injuries, prosecutors said. Her dog was not injured.
Authories said it was not immediately clear what provoked the attack.
Sometimes blacks come to this site to criticize for urging harsh punishments for violent criminals. We’re an equal opportunity hater here. We hate those of any race or ethnicity who prey upon the innocent.
You have to suspect from looking at him that the perp in this case has a record. If judges could administer corporal punishment (whippings or canings), some of this out of control violence would not take place.
Given the nature of this crime, you have to suspect that drugs are involved, and possibly mental illness. This guy needs to be permanently off the street, housed in a work camp, earning his keep through hard labor.
