Man Sentenced To Three Years For Killing Sexually Abusive Father

September 29, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Jeremiah Raymond Berry, the 22-year-old who was charged with shooting his sexually abusive father in the back of the head, decapitating him, and then dismembering him, has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The sentence is part of a plea deal, which includes 10 years of heavy supervision after his release.

“We need to give him what he needs to be a constructive member of society. He is a victim just like he is a defendant. He’s a troubled young man,” the district attorney told the judge on entering the plea deal.

Berry will be given mental health services, which sources say he is desperately in need of. He will also my monitored closely, as he has already attempted suicide in police custody during his trial, and has self-mutilated his body on various occasions.

The case outlines the horrors of years of sexual, physical, and mental abuse, all of which Berry suffered under the hand of his ruthless father.

His sister, Rebecca Lopez, told the judge, “Since Jeremiah was born, he has been in prison.”

Berry will begin his sentence immediately, and has been taken back into custody.
