Broward Judge Sentences Eric Kurt Patrick To Death

As reported it the SunSentinel and Palm Beach Post, Broward County "Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes imposed the death sentence today" in the Eric Kurt Patrick case.  Based upon the articles, Mr. Patrick admitted to targeting gay men after his release from a nine-year prison sentence. Patrick was sentenced "to death for hog-tying, beating, strangling and robbing a 72-year-old man in Oakland Park."  In June, the jurors in his trial voted 7-6 to recommend the death penalty.  For an article in the SunSentinel about the jury recommendation see here.  An article in the Palm Beach Post at the time of his February conviction can be found here.   The Broward Sheriff Office issued a press release at the time of his arrest which can be found here.
