CTV is reporitng that "A former professional football player who was convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend will not be eligible for parole for 14 years. Joshua Boden, who once played with the Canadian Football League as a wide receiver, learned his sentence in a Vancouver courtroom on Friday. Second-degree murder convictions come with an automatic life sentence in B.C., so it was up to the judge to determine when Boden would be eligible for parole. The Crown asked for 15 years, while Boden's legal team suggested 12 years."
"Boden, 35, was found guilty last year of the second-degree murder of Hallgarth. The 33-year-old was killed in 2009 in the Burnaby, B.C., home she shared with her three-year-old daughter.
During Boden's sentencing hearing, the B.C. Supreme Court heard that Boden viciously beat his ex-girlfriend, choked her and then staged the scene in an effort to make her death look like an accident." He viciously beat the mother of a three year old girl to death. He is a POS.
As I said before, this brings us back to Sonny Barger and Lenny the Pimp. The sad reality is that despite the fact that Joshua Boden was pimping out two women, he was what we consider small time. Organized crime represents the same deplorable exploitation on a much larger scale.
