NEWARK, N.J. – A man accused of attacking a New Jersey woman as she watched cartoons with her 3-year-old and while being recorded by a nanny cam was once sentenced to 10 years in prison for a similar crime.
The Star-Ledger reports that public records show Shawn Custis pleaded guilty to a 1991 case in Delran.
Authorities say he broke into a house 22 years ago and started going through a jewelry box in a bedroom, then hid in a closet when the front door opened before attacking the woman who lived there in front of her 18-month-old daughter.
What's this you say? He didn't learn his lesson? He breaks into a house, mercilessly pummels some lady ... and they let him out of prison? Interesting.
He has been convicted since then of 12 different felonies around New Jersey, according to the newspaper.
Custis, now 42, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to attempted murder, robbery, burglary and child endangerment in the Millburn attack on June 21. From here:
What? He's only been convicted of 12 felonies since then? No WONDER he's still out terrorizing the hell out of society. I'm guessing one has to be convicted of a lot more than that before going to jail for life. Our justice system doesn't need any reforming at all.
LOL @ he's on the camera and he pleads "not guilty."
"Hey, that wasn't me!! No, it was a totally different shitstain with a mask on that looks like me ... I was in church."
