Worse than death!
Judge Fred L. Borchard has made sure a Michigan child killer will never see the light of day as a free man ever again. Borchard handed down the longest possible sentence that Michigan allows in the murder trial of Aki C. Dillard.
Borchard sentenced the 40-year-old Dillard to 100 to 150 years in prison for second-degree murder in the beating death of his stepson 6 year old Elijah Dillard.
The judge ripped Dillard as a monster during sentencing. "Right when I think I have seen it all, someone else comes along and surprises me with acts more horrible than I have seen before," Borchard said. "You, Mr. Dillard, are one of the worst. If we had capital punishment in this state, I would push you to the front of the line."
Borchard chose the 100-year minimum sentence, which means Dillard only will become eligible for parole if he survives until he is 140 years old. "You should never walk again freely in this society," Borchard said.
