News: Joran Van der Sloot gets 28 years for Peru killing
The Peruvian publication cited Van der Sloot’s attorney, Max Altez, as its source.
However, Altez told the Daily Beast that he was not the source for the Joran van der Sloot wedding story and said his client had no wedding plans to the best of his knowledge.
“I deny all of that,” the lawyer said. “As far as I know, he’s not going to get married. They cited me as the source, but I’m just in charge of his legal issues, and I don’t participate in his private life.”
Ever since Joran van der Sloot was jailed at Miguel Castro Castro, he has been the focus of gossip items in the Peruvian press. Previous reports indicated the 28-year-old impregnated a woman during his prison stay. The woman, Figueroa Leydi Uceda, denied van der Sloot was the father of her child.
Rumors of Joran Van der Sloot’s wedding plans were circulating as his lawyer attempts to appeal his death sentence. In a letter released by Altez, van der Sloot said he hoped Flores’ family forgives him for killing the young woman in a Peruvian hotel, five years after Holloway’s disappearance.
“I ask God every day that Stephany’s parents can find it in their heart to forgive me,” van der Sloot wrote, according to Fox News.The Natalee Holloway suspect also said he did not expect to be sentenced to death because he pleaded guilty to murdering Flores. “My rights have been constantly abused,” he wrote. “My lawyer promised me I would receive 15 years if I plead guilty, I did.”
