It's time to protest again!

March 23, 2010

Tags: James Bergstrom, Evil Beside Her, Kathryn Casey

For all of you who've read EVIL BESIDE HER, it's time to e-mail or write letters again. James Edward Bergstrom, the psychopathic sexual predator in the book, is up for parole. Yes, I know, he got four 99-year sentences. But what does that mean? Apparently not as much time as the jurors wanted.

Bergstrom is a danger to society, especially women. If released, he will certainly victimize more women. He attacked 35 women in the Houston area in a two-year period, raping five of them, and he threatened to kill the last victim, a high school cheerleader.

Make your voice heard and keep Bergstrom behind bars. Here's how. (more…)

What Jason Bouchard settled on, what he paid the cashier for and walked out the door with, was a crowbar.

Miles away at her Houston home, Terri Sanvincente, a well-known Adam Lambert fan and an assistant manager at a Walgreen's drug store, worried about Bouchard, a man she'd once loved who'd systematically tormented her life.

Two years earlier, she'd had the ex-army paratrooper formally evicted from their home. The separation, however, had dragged on, with Bouchard seeking custody of their three children, ages eight, six and three. Yet that, too, had recently been settled in Sanvincente's favor; six weeks earlier, after an 18-month battle, jurors granted primary custody to Sanvincente. Perhaps it wasn't surprising. At the hearing, Bouchard, who represented himself, surprisingly well, one expert says, admitted drug use and frequent masturbation. The jury ruled that he'd be allowed only supervised visits with his children.

Forty-year-old Sanvincente, it would later appear, took little comfort in the ruling. She continued to worry that she and her children (one dressed as Lambert on the right) remained in danger from a man who'd pushed her and hurled constant insults. “She was always afraid of what he was going to do next,” said Tabitha Charlton, Sanvincente's first family attorney, who walked away (more…)
