When the Criminal Justice System Fails Future Victims

A man has been charged with killing 24 year old Arpana Jinaga on Halloween two years ago. The man, Emanuel Fair, 27, pleaded guilty to two counts of third degree child rape of a 15 year old in 2004. His other priors include second-degree robbery, unlawful firearms possession and drug possession. Somebody please explain why this man was out of prison in 2008.

His crime is described by the Seattle Times as follows:

"The defendant opened the locked door to Jinaga's apartment, attacked her, stripped off her clothing, gagged her, assaulted her and finally strangled her to death," Senior Deputy Prosecutor Jeff Baird said in charging paperwork.

Jinaga had been gagged while she was attacked and the killer used motor oil and bleach on her body, charging documents said. Her Halloween costume, a blanket from her bed and a portion of the carpet from her apartment had been burned.
