John Evander Couey Trial Begins Today for accused Rapist and Murderer of Jessica Marie Lunsford

Maybe this might be one of the top 5 “Most Unbelievable line” ever uttered … “People John Evander Coueydon’t like me for some reason.” (John Couey) Gee, ya think? Funny how most people are adverse to kidnapping, child rapists and murderers.

The trial of John Couey, accused monster who kidnapped, raped and murdered Jessica Lunsford, begins Monday. Jury selection is set to begin and the trial will be held in Miami rather than Citrus County where the crime was committed.

The trial was moved 300 miles to Miami from Citrus County, where the crime occurred, because of intense pretrial media coverage.    That coverage has included the passage of tougher sex offender laws in Florida and at least 18 other states and spurred creation of the first-ever coordinated Justice Department effort to track down noncompliant offenders nationwide, such as those who fail to register or aren’t living where they are supposed to.

The trial could be held on the moon, John Couey will not escape the heinous acts that he did. Once again this morning the defence tried to delay the trial from going forward. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Richard Howard denied the motion. Let’s face it Couey … its time to face the justice that you have so rightfully earned.

”The fact of the matter is, this case is going forward,” said Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Richard Howard, who denied a request for a delay by attorneys for defendant John Evander Couey. (Miami Herald)

There is one of the most unbelievable articles in The Tampa Tribune that discusses the victim-hood of John Evander Couey … or Johnny as they refer to him … “Every Way He Turned, Couey Always Landed In Trouble.” Let us never forget what this beast did to a poor innocent young girl. Let us not forget he buried her alive. Let us never forget the innocence of Jessica Lunsford.

Couey later told detectives he knew where she was. For three days, he said, she lived in his closet. For three days, he told detectives in lengthy interviews, he molested her, raped her, then placed her in a pair of trash bags and buried her next to his back steps.

The Tampa Tribune goes on to write a touchy, feely piece on Couey’s trouble filled life and times. Honestly, who cares! Maybe the Tribune may want to spend more ink and paper discussing Jessica Lunsford’s life that will never be. A life cut short in one of the most viscous and heinous ways imaginable.

However, do not worry about John Couey’s troubled life … a Florida jury will see fit to putting him and us out of our misery by handing Couey a guilty sentence and death penalty.
