Josef Fritzl Pleads Guilty After Seeing His Daughter's Testimony

Josef Fritzl Pleads Guilty After Seeing His Daughter's Testimony

Josef Fritzl changed his mind and decided to plead guilty to all charges today after watching his daughter's video testimony in court. The powerful interview was played yesterday, and the verdict and sentencing will happen tomorrow.

While pleading guilty to the death of his newborn son, Fritzl said:

I was hoping the little one would survive, but I should have done something. I don't know why I didn't help. I just lost sight . . . sorry.

The court doctor has recommended that Fritzl be sent to a secure psychiatric facility, even though he's not insane in the legal sense of the word. Fritzl faces life in jail for the murder conviction.

I agree with grandpa, his cell should be underground and he shouldn't be able to see the sky and daylight for as long as he lives.

His cell should be underground, or at least a cell with no chance to see the sky ever again, for as long as he lives.
