Caesars Palace Elevator Shooter Pleads Guilty

Some of you may remember the shooting at Caesars Palace last year which was caught on surveillance video (and promptly uploaded to YouTube by the Review Journal). Well, the triggerman - Richard Earl Shepherd Jr, just corraled himself a 3-40 year sentence in Nevada State Pound Me In The Ass Prison after accepting a plea deal.

Here's a refresher, if you haven't seen the horrific video before. Squeamish readers might want to pass on it.

Shepherd is currently being held at Clark County jail since he was caught - his lawyer (who blames the incident on thugs who picked a fight with Shepherd before the gunfire) said he hopes to have his client set free on probation until his sentencing on August 19th.

A plea deal? He was caught on tape emptying his handgun then got back into the elevator all calm and collected? Isn't this two counts of attempted murder? Seriously... a plea deal? plus a month on the street with 'probation' before he goes into the can?

Also from the Violence in Vegas file, YouTube pulled up these 'related' vids : a brawl at Harrah's and aftermath of gunfire outside of O'Shea's, which starts with everybody in the casino getting up from 'hitting the deck'.



Comments & Discussion:

Nevada is such a progressive state - they actually named their state prison "pound me in the ass"?!? That's great, here in Canada, the worst prison we got is still called "Constant ball tickling with a feather maximum security penitentiary of Alberta". We gotta re-name that place.

He was just release last week!
