Tim Holland sentenced for son’s death

LANSING — Tim Holland was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison for his role in the death of his son, Ricky, in 2005.

YAY! Clap, clap, clap!

Holland pled guilty to second-degree murder, but the sentencing was delayed until after the trial of his wife, Lisa, who was found guilty in October.

Judge Paula Manderfield was not swayed by Tim Holland’s tears or pleas or letter of reference. Even she choked up as she closed this chapter of a very sad story.

Hmmm…a jury of his “peers” were not swayed either.

Holland began crying as soon as he began speaking to the judge. “What I did was wrong,” he said. “I failed my son. I failed as a father and I failed as a human being when I did not stop my wife from abusing my son, which led to his death.”

Which is precisely WHY you’re getting what you’re getting, and going where you’re going.

He became the star witness against his wife, testifying she abused Ricky for years before hammering him to death. Tim admitted he hid Ricky’s body and covered up the murder for six months before he began to cooperate with investigators.

Fucking scum.

In handing down her sentence, Judge Manderfield went beyond the guidelines of 13.5 to 22 years in prison. “I believe you, Mr. Holland are just as guilty for Ricky’s death as Lisa Holland.”

Amen, and THANK YOU, Judge Manderfield!

When Lisa is sentenced later this month, the judge will have no option but to sentence her to life in prison.

I’ve heard that the “family” that abuses together STAYS together (for 30-60 years).
