A Violent Past
Had the jury heard Saunders violent past they may have voted differently. In 2005 Saunders was investigated by children’s services in North Carolina. Saunders was investigated after his girlfriend’s son missed three days of daycare. When the child returned to daycare he had a bruised and bloodshot eye, bruising behind both ears, two swollen lips and bruising on his forehead. The child was removed from the home and suffered no further injuries. Saunders was believed to have inflicted the injuries however he was never criminally charged.
Saunders violent behavior continued in April and May 2007 while serving in the U.S. Marines. Saunders was convicted three times for assaults on fellow marines. Two assaults involved binding another marine and hitting him with his arms and fists. Another charge involved Saunders choking another marine until he was unconscious and then dropping him on a concrete deck, which fractured the marine’s skull. Saunders also had a charge dismissed that involved choking a fellow marine.
Ronald Saunders is a child killer. He has never shown remorse and still does not take responsibility for his actions. Saunders also has a violent past that includes both assaults on children and adults. Releasing Ronald Saunders prior to serving his maximum sentence of ten years would not further the interests of justice and will present a serious risk to the community. In addition, releasing Saunders early would deny justice for Conner Bachuss. Based on the fact Ronald Saunders murdered an innocent two-year-old child, and the fact he has an extensive history of violence, we believe Ronald Saunders should serve his maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
