Upon Karla Homolka’s release from federal prison in Joliette Prison for Women in Quebec which will take place early next week. She now says she will not stay in the province of Quebec (but has been not totally made up her mind as of yet). Rumour has it that she was even offered a Montreal apartment rent free among other goodies.
Karla Homolka and then husband Paul Bernardo, are responsible for the sex slayings of Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French in 1993 and she also had a hand in her sister’s death years earlier. She served 12 years after pleading guilty to two counts of manslaughter while her ex husband is serving life imprisonment (by law, all federal offenders must be released at the two-third mark of their sentence unless it can be proved that they will kill or seriously harm and individual again). Homolka got this light sentence for agreeing to roll over on her husband.
In the works are safe guard items for the general public, for instance that she in monitored and extraordinary conditions are imposed on her in time for her release date, July 4, 2005.
But until these safeguards are in place and until she decides where she is going to reside, whether it be still in Quebec or back to her native Ontario, everyone is still a little bit edgy and possibly we have good reason to be.
