Default Ex-con gets life, no parole in Javon Walker case

An 11-time convicted felon has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for kidnapping, robbing and beating an NFL player two years ago.

An attorney for 42-year-old Deshawn Lamont Thomas promised to appeal after Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Smith sentenced Thomas on Wednesday as a habitual criminal.

A jury convicted Thomas in April after five days of testimony including an account of the attack from the 31-year-old Walker.

The former Oakland Raider wide receiver acknowledged he was falling-down drunk when he got into a car with two men he didn't know after a night partying at Las Vegas clubs in June 2008.

Co-defendant Arfat Fadel pleaded guilty to lesser charges and testified against Thomas. He'll be sentenced next week.

This is the US Justice system. It's overcrowded and there's too many loopholes. Personally I wish we'd execute 3x repeaters. That would make people think harder about doing a criminal action. Would also get rid of trash that serves no benefit to society. Just tax dollar leaches.

You should move to China, Iran, or Singapore.

Despite what seems to be public perception to the contrary (re: overcrowded prisons), you really have to work at it to get sent to prison.
