Oh well. Looks like a win-win from the perspective that he cheats his sentence, while the taxpayers don't have to feed and house him for the next several decades.

McLeod - I cannot agree with you more on this.

He could not stand being in prison for a month, yet he held three women in his captive (not to mention that he abused them) for 10 years. What a coward.

I'm sure if he were alive, he'd say he was driven to suicide because the state unconstitutionally deprived him an outlet for his "sexual addiction." An Eighth Amendment violation of his right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment.
