A match made it he!!

'Diabolical couple'

JOLIETTE, Que. -- Karla Homolka's prison lover and avowed future husband is an abusive and controlling killer.

Jean-Paul Gerbet, 38, is a French national serving a life sentence for murdering his girlfriend, Cathy Carretta, in a jealous rage when she tried to leave him seven years ago.

Gerbet's identity was revealed on Quebec TV yesterday by Carretta's father, Christian, who said he fears Homolka has found herself a replacement for ex-husband Paul Bernardo.

"He (Gerbet) is an individual who can be evil and I don't know what will come of him being chaperoned by Karla," Carretta told the TVA network yesterday. "They are a diabolical couple and a horrifying couple. It resembles Bernardo."

Homolka's controversial 12-year manslaughter sentence for her part in Bernardo's sex slayings of Kristen French, 15, and Leslie Mahaffy, 14, and the drug-rape death of Homolka's sister, Tammy, 15, ends July 5.

CAN BE? Whatever gave him the clue, and can we all hope that Karla Homolka gets it soon?

This type of *relationship* is actually quite

In reply to: A match made it he!!

fascinating from a psychological view. (Personally I find it disturbing, just in case you are wondering Wink ). I did a bit of reading about it when in college.

Here is an interesting article:

Why are women drawn to men behind bars?
Monday January 13, 2003
The Guardian
(...)no matter how extreme or appalling the crime with which they are associated, it seems there is always a woman keen to stand by the man.
As on the outside, famous people attract a disproportionate amount of attention because of the glamour that surrounds them and ordinary people's desire for vicarious celebrity. Serial killer Richard Ramirez, the so-called Night Stalker, who murdered and dismembered 13 people in the 1980s, had no trouble finding a bride. Doreen Lioy started writing to Ramirez after falling for his picture in the paper. They were married in 1996 in the prison waiting room.

Both Ramirez and Ted Bundy, a rapist-murderer who was suspected of murdering 35 young women, attracted gangs of admiring groupies who sat patiently through their court cases. Even John Wayne Gacy - not the most eligible man, with a history of drugging, raping and murdering 30 young men in Chicago - ended up marrying a woman he met while awaiting the death penalty.

She did her time.

In reply to: A match made it he!!

She didn't get parole, she did the whole sentence. When her sentence is finished she should be released just as free as you and me, in the interest of justice.

Karla got an 810

In reply to: here is the entire timeline

Article explains it. She did her time, no parole, sentence completed, but a new section of law added onto Code 810 specifically aimed at her is being used on her. Canada did a plea agreement with her so this 810 seems like they have reneged on that agreement since she should have been released free after completing her sentence. Well, she did her time, but they've passed this new law to set a trap and see if she will trip it for them, or they claim she did, so they can keep putting her away 2 years at a time.



The provision, Section 810 of the Criminal Code, gave authorities an unprecedented tool of control, one that violated a long-standing principle that a person who has served his or her sentence cannot be sentenced again.

Victims' groups and law-enforcement officials cheered, but civil libertarians blanched....

...Section 810 is so broad that one need not even have committed a prior offence in order to be trapped in its legal mesh. A judge need only find that there are "reasonable grounds" to fear he or she may commit a serious offence....

....Statistics have apparently never been compiled on how the section is used.....

....The section provides for a year in jail for anyone who refuses to enter into a recognizance. Under Section 811 of the Criminal Code, a person who breaches a Section 810 recognizance can be imprisoned for up to two years.

Mr. Greenspan said the possibility of an application being renewed year after year based on the same evidence is "scary. It becomes a never-ending cycle."...

In reply to: Canada. Land of the free. It sounds like that Tom Cruise

rape and murder, plus the drugging, rape and manslaughter of her sister, and the kidnapping and rape of another girl, all of them under the age of consent, was a gift due to sloppy police work. It appears unlikely that she will appeal this supervision.
