The Epitome Of A Bad Uncle: “Monster” Sentenced 25 Years To Life For Brutally Beating 2-Year-Old Niece

- By Bossip Staff

This is sad:

A 33-year-old Cypress man — who prosecutors described as a “monster” — was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years to life for the brutal beating death of his 2-year-old niece.

Michael David Balderas was given custody of little Jo Jade in 2005 when his sister was imprisoned in Texas. Deputy District Attorney Michael Murray described Balderas as a “monster” to Superior Court Judge William R. Froeberg before sentencing, saying the little girl had been tortured and sexually assaulted. Murray told the judge that Balderas was not human, according to the Orange County Register. .

Balderas was convicted in January of second-degree murder and assault on a child likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in the death of Jo Jade on March 30, 2006. The jury deadlocked at 11-1 in favor of first-degree murder because one juror did not find that sexual assault led to Jo Jade’s death. The jury later agreed on second-degree murder.

A doctor testified during the trial that Jo Jade had received the worst beating he had ever seen. The child, Murray said, had bruising on every inch of her lower extremities.

Wow. And THIS GUY is who this little girl was left with when her mother was imprisoned???
