Masslive: A 36-year-old inmate who stabbed and punched a corrections officer then spat blood on other corrections officers claiming he had AIDS was sentenced to serve 12-to-16 years in prison Wednesday. Edwin Santiago pleaded guilty to armed assault with intent to murder, eight counts of assault and battery on a corrections officer, assault and battery on a public employee, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault with a dangerous weapon in Worcester Superior Court.
Santiago ran at corrections officers inside the Worcester County Jail and House of Correction in West Boylston around 10:15 a.m. on July 11, 2012 while in the courtyard, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. Assistant District Attorney Timothy A. Westerman said in court that Santiago ran at corrections officers, Sgt. Anthony Oliveri and Officer Jesse Remillard holding a sharp, metal object in his hard.
“Mr. Santiago hit Officer Oliveri in the face and stabbed him several times,” Early’s office said in a news release. “Mr. Westerman said Mr. Santiago then spit blood and saliva on other corrections officers, claiming he had AIDS.”
Oliveri and Remillard spoke in court during the sentencing. Oliveri said he has post traumatic stress disorder and is suffering from anxiety because of the attack, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported. The sergeant wondered if he was going to die and not see his young children grow up, the newspaper reported. Westerman asked for a sentence of 29-to-30-years in prison while defense lawyer John P. Morris, asked for 10-to-12-years.
“This was a viscous attack, which easily could have resulted in death,” Early said in a statement. “Corrections officers have a dangerous and difficult job, and I thank them for their response to this attack and the work they do every day. I also want to praise the tremendous work ADA Westerman did on this case.”

Janen “Let em walk” Kenton-Walker, up to her old tricks. Just gonna leave this right here….
“Mr. Santiago was shouting that he had AIDS and that he was willing to serve a life sentence for his actions, according to Mr. Westerman.”
So just to review. This guy is an animal. He is beyond rehabilitation. The second he gets out of prison he will kill people, because that’s just what he’s all about. The prosecutor asked for 30 years, and in the first time in the history of law and order the defendant was asking for MORE time. And what did Let Em Walk Walker do? Gave him 12 years. I mean, if you’re not gonna throw the book at a guy who is begging you to throw the book at them, then who are you ever gonna throw the book at?
Of course anyone who knows anything about this Deval Patrick-appointed hyphenated social justice warrior, knows that letting criminals get away with their crimes is what she does best. Like that chick who confessed to killing her own baby:
Or that time a jury found a man guilty of trying to rape a 19 month old baby, and she punished him with………PROBATION!!!!
Of course one of my favorite fuck ups by Let Em Walk Walker happened just last summer. In 2014 she was the judge in a murder case from 1994. Two years later when the murderer appealed his case to her again, she ruled that she fucked up and the murderers lawyers didn’t protest her fuck up, and thus the murderer’s conviction was overturned:
“In agreeing with an appeal filed by Mr. Fredette, Judge Kenton-Walker ruled that she issued improper instructions to the jury before it deliberated, and that Mr. Fredette’s lawyers, Michael S. Hussey and Paul Rudof, didn’t protest the error.”
Oh good, she’s not only ultra-lenient, she’s also ruled herself incompetent. Great. Unfortunately for the victims sister she now has to relive this pain all over again:
“No verdict or punishment will ever bring Kevin back, however, after 20 years of waiting we have finally received some closure in the form of justice,” Ms. Ramirez said. “We are heartbroken to think there is even a possibility we will have to relive that night, in the courtroom, yet again.”
This is why criminals in this state are running wild. Because our judges are out of control. It’s pretty simple really. Bad guys who are a threat to society need to be in jail. And we need politicians who will appoint judges that actually care about protecting society from bad guys.
