In the many incarnations of this blog, you may remember the brutal 2005 murder of Jennifer Parks. The 16-year-old girl was brutally murdered and dismembered by neighbor Jonathan Zarate.
Zarate was sentenced to life plus 24 years for Jennifer’s murder. Now he can add another 5 years to his sentence as he pleaded guilty to assaulting a prison guard at the Morris County jail in 2005.
I know that Zarate has no chance of seeing daylight ever again but anytime salt can be rubbed in his wounds it makes me happy. Unfortunately, none of this can bring Jennifer back but it’s refreshing to see justice rightly served for once.
