Just wait until they drag those women back through every evil this monster did to them. He is hated; If he had done this to my daughter, I’d pray for not guilty, his release, and then my kin would take care of him. That’s the way it’s handled where I come form. Not much crime there because of the fear of retaliation.

Seems they have a lot of sympathy for Castro and not the victims, they seem just as demented as he is. I wonder how these lawyers would feel if this were their daughters and sisters locked up like this for 10yrs?

I feel disgusted and repulsion towards these lawyers, they trying to defend a monster makes them a monster themselves, even worse, more like flies on feces, just for money what they’ll do, where is their family values and principles, or they have no empathy and are missing mental faculties, making them immune to cruelty? Please God for the sake of the victims of these atrocious crimes, please! designate appropriate human counsel that will keep human morale up and not degrade to the level of perishing fellow human beings, that are masters of degeneration, manifesting ignorance in all levels, not knowing that God is Great, and that karmic repercussion always affects accessories or protectors of dregs of society, even if they don’t fear God. GOD BLESS OUR CHILDREN AND HARMLESS DECENT PEOPLE THAT ARE DEFENSELESS.

The lawyers representing this disgusting Monster should be investigated themselves…. any human being that represents filth like this should be questioned . Attention grabbing pieces of crap. How can some lawyers sleep at night. I hope their careers are ruined after taking on this case.

He’s a kidnapper, torturer and rapist – sounds pretty monstrous to me. If he pleads not guilty and forces those women to relive their ordeal in court, that will be the last monstrous thing he does before being sentenced to life imprisonment.

The headline should actually say, ‘Lawyers trying to extend criminal case to line pockets.’

Not guilty? What is his defense? “It wasn’t me.”??? They WANTED to be there? He probably believes that!! I know his lawyers need to defend the indefensible, but he didn’t seem like a monster to them? That’s cuz they are not teenage girls. He is acting like a typical abusive person who says they will never do it again and sound sincere. But really? Ten years holding 3 kidnapped women in his house as sex slaves? I’m sure it was all a misunderstanding.

Something is wrong with you @Preciousgirl!
I guess Michelle Knight got those facial injuries because she wanted them?
Who would choose to live and not be able to leave the house, be beaten and starved, unless it was forced upon them?
You are one sick individual if you think this guy is innocent and these women chose to live like that!
I don’t care what you thought you saw on your sick fetish website.Whether it was them or not on that website, these girls were kidnapped,abused,raped and tortured for years.
Would you want to live like that? I think not.
You should be ashamed of yourself, wanting to be recognized for remembering some s###! like that.
He doesn’t love that little girl, if you believe that I have a sink hole in Florida I want to sell you.
I’m sure if one these girls were your family member you’d be singing another tune.
Go pray for these women and stay off those sick websites.

I too think that deathrow is a to easy sentence for him, he should spend the rest of his life locked up, and I too believe that the prisoners will receive him with open arms…

He kidnapped three women, held them for an average of about a decade, repeatedly raped them, killed most of the babies, chained them from the ceiling, beat them, and he raped his own child…but the media and public should not demonize him or call him a monster? Who CARES about his side of the story?!?!?! I say send the lawyers to death row with him.

Not guilty??? what???This man has no shame. In this case I think the death penalty is just too easy. This man deserves to suffer and what better punishment to spend the rest of his miserable life locked up like the girls did. I can bet that the prisoners will receive him with open arms…

a question to the lawyer: how the hell did you become a lawyer?
you should be in prison with him if you’re that heartless to defend that creature!!

That’s our justice system. Sadly he also has rights, no matter what he did.
I had hoped he would plead guilty so these women wouldn’t have to be dragged through hell yet again by recounting what they had to go through during the time they were in his clutches.
This lawyer wants to make a name for themselves by letting him plead not guilty, the spotlight continues to be on the sicko, which is what people like him get off on.
Hopefully someone in jail will shank him before the trial and put an end to this piece of crap all together.
But of course he is probably in protective custody because this is such a high profile case. I for one will not follow the trial because it would make me too angry. I just want to hear he is convicted and will never see the light of day again.
Afterwards , hopefully he will end up as a girlfriend to some buff guy named Bubba, who will remind him everyday just a little of what these young women had to endure.

He’s gonna need devine intervention to get away with this.
He should just plead guilty and take his punishment.The taxpayers would save a whole lot of money and these women wouldn’t have to get dragged through hell again in the process. That would be to much like right though.
