Guilty verdict in Bucktown bat-beating trial

A Cook County jury convicted Heriberto Viramontes today in connection with a baseball bat beating in which a Northern Ireland exchange student suffered severe head injuries and her friend was hurt as well.
The jury deliberated about 3 ½ hours before convicting Viramontes on all 10 counts of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and aggravated battery in the April 23, 2010, beatings of Natasha McShane and Stacy Jurich.
About two hours into their deliberations, jurors had asked for transcripts of the recordings of Heriberto Viramontes’ calls from Cook County Jail following his arrest, as well as a photo of his neck tattoo.
Prosecutors said the tattoo was visible in video from a gas station where Viramontes allegedly used one of the victims' credit cards to pump gas for motorists in exchange for cash.
During closing arguments earlier today, Assistant State’s Attorney John Maher called Viramontes “every parent’s nightmare” and said "he took everything" from the victims.
“He took Natasha McShane’s future ….He burdened them (the McShane family) with the life task of caring for their daughter. He took serenity and sleep from Stacy Jurich along with her peripheral vision and part of her scalp.”
At one point Maher walked about the courtroom with the bat that prosecutors believe was used in the beating, telling jurors, “Behold Heriberto Viramontes, every parent’s nightmare.”
Maher called damning the audio recordings in which Viramontes admitted on calls from Cook County Jail that he attacked the two women.
"They bury that guy right there " he said, his voice rising. "The trial ended the moment those were published. "
Viramontes’ attorney, Chandra Smith, said the attack was a tragedy but her client was innocent.
"We don't know who did this, but we know it was not Mr. Viramontes,” she told jurors.
Smith said Viramontes’ co-defendant, Marcy Cruz, who testified against him, cannot be trusted.
She cautioned jurors about the jail recordings, saying only  a portion of the calls were played and that they were taken out of context. But if jurors believed the prosecution’s version of the recordings, she said the calls show he did not have the intent to kill that is needed to prove attempted first-degree murder.
The attack took place in the early hours of April 23, 2010, in the 1800 block of North Damen Avenue as the McShane and Jurich walked home from celebrating an internship McShane had just landed.
Jurich, who was in the courtroom for the closing arguments, was able to return to work but testified during the trial that she still has severe headaches and reduced vision.

Can't We ALL Just get rid of the Spirit ANGER, the Spirit of "Self hate" the Spirit of "white Supremacy" the Spirit that "Points Finger and play the BLAME Game" and MAYBE We will beable to SEE The REAL Spirit Who is out to Destroy Us all in one way or another. NO, he doesn't wear a "Red Suit with horns and a Pitch-fork;" NO, He dresses like You, he walks in wickedness like you, he talks evil like you and their are days he Looks back in the Mirror at You. So You Best PRAY Today is NOT The day He gets YOU. Let Us Learn to LOVE One another have a piece of a heart even for those that fall into the trap because tomorrow you may need More Love and Mercy than You do today.
