TACOMA, Wash. A 23-year-old man convicted in the Craigslist killing of a Tacoma-area man has been sentenced to 124 years in prison.

Tacoma's News Tribune reported Kiyoshi Higashi was unrepentant in court Friday. He said no one but God could judge him and added: "I don't care what sentence you give me."

Pierce County Superior Court jurors convicted Higashi earlier this week of murder, burglary, robbery and assault.

Detective John Jiminez, the case's lead investigator, described Higashi as "pure evil."

"He's earned every second of every day he will spend in prison," the News Tribune quoted Jiminez as saying.

Prosecutors argued Higashi was one of the main players in the April 28, 2010, home-invasion robbery of Jim Sanders and his family.

Higashi and three co-defendants targeted the family after Sanders advertised a diamond ring for sale on Craigslist.

Sanders was shot after he broke free of restraints and began to fight the robbers.

The other three are awaiting trial.

lots of crazies out there do you take a chance or do you just quit?? with the boldness of some of these supposed buyers you wouldn't be safe in front of a poliece station you would have to be inside and surronded by several officers,
A public place doesn't matter anymore as they just don't care because most times other people won't get involved or will react fast enough to someone being robbed or beaten.
I no longer use CL's for sales that require pick up unless I have at least 2 other people present when the pickup is done

Isn't it a great society we live in? Here this remorseless jackass will get a cot and three hot meals a day for the rest of his life, and maybe even beat up, sodomize, rape, or kill another less dangerous inmate while he is at it.
