Attorney for murderer Rasheen Everett asks for light sentence saying transgender woman Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar's life didn't matter

The callous heartless lawyer for Rasheen Everett appealed to the judge at the sentencing hearing hoping that the judge shared his and his clients belief that all people are human, except transgender people.

New York Post: In a bizarre courtroom speech, a Queen defense attorney said the life of a murdered transgender prostitute wasn’t worth much — and argued that her convicted killer shouldn’t be punished as if he had killed someone “in the higher end of the community.”

“A sentence of 25 years to life is an incredibly long period of time judge,” John Scarpa said Thursday as he asked a judge to go easy on his client, Rasheen Everett, for killing hooker Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar in 2010.

“Shouldn’t that be reserved for people who are guilty of killing certain classes of individuals?”
Then, taking callousness to a new level, he said: “Who is the victim in this case? Is the victim a person in the higher end of the community?”

New York Post reports that Everett snickered during the emotional testimony by Amanda's family even winking at friends as he was led out of court..

Queens Supreme Court Justice Richard Buchter scolded Scarpa as he sentenced Everett to 29 years in prison.

The "bone headed attorney"
So who is this John Scarpa a man who would throw us away like trash?

During the trial he asked Everett's ex why she broke up with him. She told the jury it was because he tried to choke her, beat her up and imprisoned for a week before she got away and she had pictures to prove it with her.

The jury gasped and shook their heads at Scarpa's ineptitude. The New York Post summed up it nicely when they reported about the "Bonehead attorney outs client’s ‘assault’"

This lawyer did not care for the victim or the person being sentenced... Anything can happen in this life time. We grow into adults and choices are made. Lasting memories of life for everyone.
