    Lengthy sentences for two who beat and tortured burglar
    AP

    March 17, 2007 (BLOOMINGTON, Ill.) - A McLean County judge has handed down major prison sentences to a man and a woman accused of beating, torturing and kidnapping a man they caught stealing from the woman's apartment.
    Twenty-year-old Jennifer McWhorter of Normal and 28-year-old Wesley Radford of Bloomington were found found guilty in January on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery and mob action in the May 29th attack on James Valentine, who was then 18 years old.

    Jurors acquitted the pair on charges of attempted murder and robbery.

    Judge Kevin Fitzgerald sentenced McWhorter yesterday to 12 years in prison and radford to 14-and-a-half years.

    Prosecutors say the two beat Valentine for at least two hours, stabbed him and sprayed him with pepper spray before taking him from McWhorter's apartment, stripping him naked and dumping him on a street in Normal.

    Of course the real solution isn't for people to start doling out their own justice, its to fix the justice system.

    probably would have gone unsolved.. unless they tell someone what happened, no motive to even consider them

    They did take it too far. Once someone is sufficiently restained, I can see justification in continuing beating for a few minutes, but not for two hours with stabbing and pepper spraying on top of that. Theres a line between street justice and sadism, and those two crossed it.
