Joran Van der Sloot has just been sentenced to 28 years in a Peruvian prison for the murder of Stephany Flores. He was also fined $74,000.

With good behavior, Van der Sloot could be out in 14 years. If you believe Dave Holloway, the father of Van der Sloot's other alleged victim Natalee, that's pretty scary — says Holloway, "I believe he is beyond rehabilitation."
