SENTENCING MEMORANDUM
I. Statement of the Case.
Defendant Ariel'Castro (the "Defendant") was arrested on May 6, 2013, with a bond of
$8,000,000.00 set on May 9, 2013 along with a No Contact Order regarding the four victims in
case The Defendant was arraigned on May 12, 2013 in case CR-13-57-4231 and

his original bond was continued. The Defendant was arraigned in case on July

17, 2013, and the $8,000,000.00 bond and No Contact Order were put in place under the new

case number. During the several pre-trials that were held between the two case numbers, the

Defendant underwent a evaluation and was deemed competent to stand trial; and the

I State of Ohio provided over 4,324 'pages of discovery, over 76 discs of photos, additional

documents and statements, and numerous BCI lab reports. A trial date of August 5, 2013 was set
on July 3, 2013.

On July 26, 2013, the Defendant pleaded guilty to an amended Indictment in Case CR-
l3-5754l9 with conditions set forth in a plea contract, which included an agreed, recommended
sentence of Life Without Parole plus 1,000 years of incarceration.

II. Statement of the Facts.

For a period of 11 years, the Defendant kidnapped and subsequently held captive three
young Cleveland girls in his home at 2207 Seymour Avenue, during which he serially abused
them physically, emotionally, and sexually on a daily basis.

A) Michelle Knight, also known as Jane Doe 1.

Michelle Knight was taken on August 22, 2002 at the age of 21 from the area of W. 106"'
Street and Lorain Ave. She was spotted by the Defendant in need of assistance in getting to an

appointment regarding her son. The Defendant lured her into his vehicle with promises of a ride.

The Defendant then took Ms. Knight to his home at 2207 Seymour Avenue and enticed her to go
inside with promises of puppy for her son. Once inside, Ms. Knight was subjected to
innumerable physical, and sexual assaults that lasted for ll years.

B) Amanda Berry, also known as Jane Doc 2.

Amanda Berry was taken on April 21, 2003 at the age of 16'from the area of W. 110"'
Street and Lorain Avenue. She was spotted by the Defendant as she was walking home from
work. The Defendant lured her into his vehicle with promises of a ride home. Once inside the
vehicle, the Defendant "deceived her by offering to take her to see his daughter. He lured her into
his home by telling her that his daughter was inside taking a shower. Once inside the house, Ms.
Berry was also subjected to unimaginable physical, and sexual assaults that lasted
for 10 years.

C) Gina DeJesus, also known as Jane Doe 3.

Gina DeJesus was taken on April 2, 2004 at the age of 14 from the area of W. 105*" Street

and Lorain Avenue. The Defendant saw her while she walking home from school. The
Defendant, in keeping with his developed pattern of kidnapping, lured her into his vehicle by
promising her a ride home. Once inside the house, Ms. DeJesus was subjected to countless
physical, and sexual assaults that lasted for over 9 years.

D) Jocelyn Berry, also known as Jane Doc 4.

Jocelyn Berry's period of captivity began at birth on December 25, 2006. She was
continually denied access to medical care, which put her at a risk of suffering serious physical
harm. She was raised in an environment where acts of violence and abuse against the other

captives were nearly constant.

The Defendant preyed on vulnerable young women. He was able to trick them and nullify
their defensive instincts until he had them restrained in his house. Once the Defendant had them
in his personal prison, he went to great to ensure their captivity. His repeated mode of
operation was to use physical restraints on the victims. He used chains to deprive them of their
liberty and. freedom. For years, the movements of the victims were absolutely controlled by the
Defendant and his physical restraints. They were kept in locked rooms with physical restraints on
their bodies. Very little movement was allowed throughout the house. Every aspect of the
victims' physical freedom was dictated by the Defendant. There is only one bathroom in the
house, on the first floor.' The Defendant would not allow the victims downstairs to use the
bathroom. They only had access to plastic toilets. in the bedrooms. They were emptied
infrequently.

In order to further imprison these innocent victims, the Defendant also employed
restraints. Through a program of prolonged physical, sexual, and
violence, the Defendant was able to keep the victims in a state of powerlessness. He made them
believe that their physical survival depended on him, and he threatened to end their lives if they
did not comply with his every demand. The Defendant controlled every aspect of the
environment in which the victims lived. He controlled the temperature and the inflow of food
and drink. He used the cold of the basement and the heat of the attic as punishment techniques.
The Defendant kept a gun, and threatened to shoot the captives if they ever tried to escape.

The Defendant told his captives that he had other victims, and that some of them made it
home, but that others had not. These and other threats had the effect of terrifying the victims into
subservience. These courageous victims never had opportunities to leave, and the Defendant

would assault them whenever they attempted to escape. The victims had to watch the rest of the

world turn as they were held in captivity. Holidays, world events, and even the passing of Ms.

Berry's mother were observed by them, removed from the outside world.

At one point during the time period spanning August 23, 2005 to October 31, 2005, the

Defendant forced the three victims intothe garage behind his house. For three days, they were

9 kept physically restrained in a vehicle in the garage, while the Defendant had a visitor at his

house. The Defendant admitted this conduct in pleading guilty to counts 44-46, 296-298, and"

320-322 of the indictment.

During the time period spanning March 1, 2006 to March 31, 2006, Amanda Berry
became pregnant. The Defendant admitted to the sexual assault related to this pregnancy in
counts 299-301 in the indictment. On December 25, 2006, Amanda Berry gave birth to Jocelyn
Berry. Through DNA testing, the Defendant was found to be the biological father of Jocelyn
Berry. The Defendant deprived Amanda Berry of any medical assistance during the pregnancy
and birth. When the baby was born, she was not breathing. Michelle Knight breathed into the
baby's mouth in an effort to save her. The Defendant threatened to kill Michelle Knight if she
failed to save her life. Miraculously, the baby survived.

During the time period spanning November 1, 2006 to February 28, 2007, the Defendant raped
and impregnated Michelle Knight. The Defendant admitted this conduct by pleading guilty to
counts 3 and 4 of the indictment. During that same time period, the Defendant beat and starved
Michelle Knight in order to unlawfully terminate that pregnancy. The Defendant admitted this
conduct by pleading guilty to Aggravated Murder as charged in counts 1 and 2 of the indictment.
In a statement, he admitted that he intended to terminate the pregnancy. The Defendant punched
and kicked her in the stomach, jumped on her stomach, and starved her for days to terminate the

pregnancy. The Defendant denied Ms. Knight any medical attention.

The victims of the Defendant's heinous crimes did everything humanly possible to retain

a senseof normalcy. They were able to mark the passage of time through the maintenance of
diaries-. Several diary entries document abuse and life as a captive. The entries speak of forced
sexual conduct, of being locked in a dark room, of anticipating the next session of abuse, of the
dreams of someday escaping and being reunited with family, of being chained to a wall, of being
held like a prisoner of war, of missing the lives they once enjoyed, of emotional abuse, of his
threats to kill, of being treated like an animal, of continuous abuse, and of desiring freedom.
Many of the specific counts of the indictment reflect conduct recorded by a victim in a diary.

On I May 6, 2013, the victims won their freedom through a courageous escape. The
Defendant was arrested the same day. Although he admits his disgusting and inhumanconduct,
the Defendant remains remorseless for his actions.

Defendant Ariel Castro's History.

A) Childhood History and Education.

The Defendant was born on July 10, 1960 in Puerto Rico. His father, Pedro J. Castro was

B) Family/Personal History.

In 1980, the Defendant met his former-common law spouse, Grimilda Figueroa 3 0/63)
after his family moved into a home across the street from hers. Between 198l_ and 1990 he
fathered four children with Figueroa, Ariel Anthony Castro (9/27/81), Angie Marie" Castro
(l/13/83), Emily Lisette Castro (1/6/88) and Arlene Rosie Castro. The Defendant and
Figueroa shared a hostile and abusive relationship. The defendant was arrested on Domestic

Violence charges on October 31, 1989, December 27, 1993, and October 12, 2004. Consequently

"Figueroa and her children moved out of the Seymour home in 1996 and on January 22, 1997, the

Defendant lost custody of all of his children to Figueroa and all visitation rights were terminated.
On August 29, 2005, after complaining of two broken noses, broken ribs, knocked out teeth, a
fractured skull and multiple death threats on her and, her children, Grimilda Figueroa filed a
protection order against the Defendant. In 2008, the Defendants daughter Emily was sentenced to
25 years in prison for cutting her infant daughter's throat. On April 25, 2012 Grimilda Figueroa
died due to complications associated with a brain tumor. Subsequent to his relationship with
Grimild-a Figueroa and overlapping into the captivity of Michelle Knight, the Defendant dated a
woman by the name of Lillian Roldan who described their relationship as normal. The
According to Ms. Roldan, the Defendant ended that relationship because he had too many
commitments. The Defendant has at least four grandchildren. The Defendant also fathered a
child, .J .B. (12/25/06), with one of his victims, Amanda Berry.

C) Employment.

The Defendant previously has worked for the following companies: Pick-N-Pay on W.

65"' Street in Cleveland as a bagger and cleaner; Lesner Products on Columbus Rd. as a drill

press operator; and Curnba Motors at 3455 W. 25"' St. as a helper and driver. On February 19,
1991 he was hired as a bus driver for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

Throughout his tenure as a CMSD bus driver, he was written up and suspended for
multiple infractions. On January 26, 2004, he was given a Class I Violation for Unauthorized
Stop, Failure to Follow Proper Radio Procedures, and a Class II Violation for Failure to
Effectively Carry out Job Description Activities, 'which was written up by the Cleveland Police
Department' as Child Endangering and Abduction. The Defendant had picked up a mentally
challenged student from his care provider. He then kept the young student in the back of his bus,
drove to a Wendy's restaurant and told the student to "Lay down, bitch," and went into the
Wendy's restaurant, leaving the young boy on the bus. He then returned to the bus, drove around
for a while, parking in the bus parking lot for a period of time, and then dropped the student off
at school. The Defendant was suspended from work for 60 days without pay, and a disciplinary
hearing was held.

In early April, 2009, the Defendant was again written up for a Class I and Class II

Violation: Disregard for the Safety of Passengers, and Negligence or Carelessness in the

'Performance of Work that Adversely Affects Quality, Equipment, or Personal Safety. He made

an illegal "U-turn" in front of RG Jones Elementary School on W. 150"' with students on board.
A disciplinary hearing was held on April 15, 2009 and the Defendant was again suspended for 60
days.

Then on February 14, 2012, the Defendant was written up for a Class I Violation:
Unauthorized Stop. It was learned that he was frequently grocery shopping at Mares on Puritas
and W. 154*" St. in Cleveland while on his route, a deviation from his normal bus route. Finally,

the Defendant was written up on September 20, 2012 for a Class I Violation: Unauthorized Use

of Division Equipment. He left his bus unattended at Scranton School for four hours and went
home due to a widely posted route cancellation. A disciplinary hearing was held on October 4,
2012 during which termination was recommended due to this being his fourth demonstration of
"lack of judgment.''. The Defendant was ultimately terminated from his position as a bus driver
by the Cleveland Metropolitan School District on November 6, 2012.

D) Inheritance and Credit History.

According to the Defendant's Probate record, he received a portion of his father, Pedro J.
Castro's estate. The Defendant's portion included $11,037.89 and a 1997 Chevy Malibu
appraised . at $1500. The Defendant has no credit history whatsoever as it was discovered he
operated mainly in cash.

I E) Vehicles.

It is known that the Defendant owned several vehicles and including: a 1997
Chevy Malibu, 2000 Yamaha 1982 Kawasaki 1999 Jeep Grand
Cherokee, 2001 Yamaha 2004 Harley, Blue Mazda Miata and Toyota Tacoma.

guitars. He was at one point a_ known member of several bands such as: Sin Ti, Groupo uego,
Groupo Kanori and Los Boyz Del Merengue.

G) Social Life.

Despite Defendant's participation in numerous musical groups, he made conscious efforts
to keep himself isolated and only build acquaintance type relationships, which he kept at a
distance. During numerous media interviews, there was a general consensus, of those who knew

the Defendant, that although he was friendly, he mostly kept to himself and was very private.

The Defendant set boundaries even for those who were closest to him. His family members
rarely visited, and when they did, they were told to stay in the kitchen. The last intimidate
relationship the Defendant had, was with' his former girlfriend, Lilian Roldan. The Defendant
broke all ties with her in 2003 in order to successfully undertake kidnapping of the victims,
without any interruption by his social connections.

H) Criminal.

Althoughthe Defendant criminal past is not extensive, his criminal history indicates a
strong pattern of violence and abuse. On October 31, 1989, the Defendant was first arrested for
Domestic V_iolence against .Grimilda Figueroa, his former common-law wife. After this incident,
the abuse seemed to escalate with the Defendant once again being arrested on December 26,
1993, and then once again on October 12, 2004. -Consequently, Figueroa suffered numerous
injuries: two broken noses, numerous broken ribs, lacerations, knocked out teeth, a dislocated
shoulder, and a blood clot on the brain. I

On November 20, 1994, Defendant was involved in assault incident where he threatened
to hit victim, Emesto Santiago, with a shovel and "take care of him." This incident arose from an
inquiry by the victim over his missing chain-linked fence.

On May 16, 1996, the Defendant was involved in a verbal altercation with victim,

Fernando Colon, resulting in a police report for menacing. Another menacing incident occurred

-on August 16, 1996, involving victims Stokes and Parker, which ended in a civil judgment on

July 1, 1997 ordering the Defendant to pay Parker $241.00 in-restitution. On January 26, 2004,

after leaving child victim, T.S., on the bus, Defendant entered into a Wendy's to eat lunch. As a

result, Abduction and Endangering Children complaints were reported against him.

IV. Defendant Ariel Castr0's Statements.

10

In his statement to law enforcement, the Defendant admits to keeping three girls turned
women, Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Georgina Delesus, locked inside his house at 2207
Seymour -Avenue for a total of 11 years. During that time, he admits to having the girls chained
by their ankles, with only one meal a day, showering infrequently, while he had "sexual
relations" with them. In the end, he claims that he "gave them all a chance to escape" by leaving
the door to Ms. Berry and her child's room unlocked.

The Defendant admitted and -realized this was a complicated double-life that he was
leading. He also admitted that he did not have an exit strategy--the consequences of which could
have been even more horrific.

A) Michelle Knight. a

With regards to Michelle Knight, the Defendant admits that he was able to get her into
his car in August 2002 at the Family Dollar store _located near W. 30"' and Clark Avenue by
promising her a ride home. He then took her to his house at 2207 Seymour Avenue, but he
claims he had "consensual" sex with her from that day in 1002 until a week before he was
arrested on May 6, 2013. He also admits that he kept Ms. 'Knight locked inside various rooms in
his house using chains and plastic zip-ties while securing padlocks on the exterior doors. He also
put a piece of cloth inside of her mouth to prevent her from screaming.

He admits that on one occasion Ms. Knight told him she may be pregnant, and he claims
that the two of them devised a plan to abort the pregnancy. The Defendant claims he was able to
force a termination of that pregnancy by putting her on a diet of only tea for several days,
making her perform "knee bends" and jumping jacks.

During the period of Ms. Knight's captivity, the Defendant stated that he only gave her

one meal per day, and a shower 1'-2 times a week depending on the time of year.

11

showers per week. He claims Ms. Berry otherwise had food her "her room" to eat throughout

the day. He also prevented her from leaving the -house by using chains and padlocks.

attracted to Ms. Delesus, who at the time was only 14 years old. He drove past his daughter who
was still walking 'home in order to stop next to Ms. Delesus. He then asked her if she knew
where his daughter same daughter who he had just passed on the street. He was able to

get Ms. Delesus into his vehicle by asking her to help him find his daughter. He then took her to

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor
1200 Ontario Street
Cleveland, Ohio 44113

Dear Mr. McGinty:

You have asked me to' evaluate the impact of confi_nement_ and abuse upon the victims of Ariel Castro.

Based upon material provided by your office which includedvideo of victim interviews, transcripts and
medical reports, the FBI investigative materials, visits to the crime scene, the proffer interview of Ariel
Castro, and interviews with people familiar with the case, reach these conclusions:

1. Castro hurt each of the three young women that he captured and confined in ways that create lasting
wounds.

He terrified them. The body responds to terror long afterward with uncontrollable visions,
smells, sounds and sensations. These are called trauma memories and they are unlike ordinary memory.
They come at night in the form of nightmares. They come in the twilight zone between falling asleep
and awakening. They come in the middle of the day, often when there is a reminder. Trauma survivors
call this "being triggered." Each young woman sustained man_y, many traumas. There is some evidence
of post-traumatic stress documented in medical records. Often there are delayed effects, coming on
after the exhilaration of rescue wears off.

B. He degraded, demeaned and diminished them. Some acts terrify, others degrade. To be
bound, gagged, deprived of a toilet - to be treated in a less than human way - causes not only fear, but
profound shame and humiliation". when this is done repetitively and relentlessly, it alters a person's
sense of self. We have no official diagnosis for this, but we call it complex PTSD. it is the result of
victimization over a long period of time, or in the years when personality and character are being
formed, or both. Repetitive rape combined with captivity are crimes that terrify and degrade. I saw

ample evidence of this.

C. He deprived them of ten years of normalcy during the stages of life when a girl becomes a
woman, when we learn how to become intimate -- to trust a trustworthy person. He deprived them of
access to family, friends, school, work, community and country. These are profound losses and difficult
to reconstruct. One may appearjoyful at the return to freedom and to others who care deeply. That joy
is wonderful to see and a good sign. But there is a_ lot of reconstructive work to be done before these
survivors are really free, really able to judge who is an exploiter and who is a reliable friend.

D. He did additional damage, through beating, starving, impregnating and aborting. He fathered
a child in a prison of his construction and promoted a delusion that this was a love child. He turned
truth and common sense on its head and he fed that to his captives. They are in various stages of
emerging from his false beliefs which he attempted to foist upon them.

E. He appeared to be evolving in an ever more dangerous direction, capturing younger and
younger women, telling his captives he was hunting for replacements. And what would happen to them
if he did capture new slaves? They felt, at times, that they would be replaced and freed. At some level

of consciousness, they must have known that freedom was not an option and replacement meant
death.

2. Each of his captives, including Jocelyn, the child, demonstrated remarkable qualities and they shou_Id
inspire us all. First, there is Michelle. She suffered the longest and the most severely. But it was
Michelle who served as doctor, nurse, midwife and pediatrician during the birth oflocelyn. She
breathed life into that infant when she wasn't breathing. She. coached Amanda through labor and birth
in "primitive conditions. At other times, she interceded when Castro sought to abuse Gina, interposing
herself and absorbing physical and sexual trauma. But each survivor had a will to prevail and used that
will to live through t-he long ordeal. Amanda kept a journal with almost every entry addressed to her
mother, first when her motherwas alive and frantically looking for her missing daughter, Later Amanda
wrote to her mother in heaven, seeking to soothe her mother as she prayed for own deliverance and the
health of her little girl. On rare occasions, all four captives were allowed to be together and they
managed to share faith and friendship. Home schooling and instruction in honorable values came from
Amanda to Jocelyn and this was endorsed, when possible, by Gina and Michelle.

This is the good news, and it is very good, indeed. But it does not in any way paint a rosy picture for
normalcy or a quick recovery. Grave damage has been done.

3. The Stockholm does apply, in part, as an explanation for the young women's compliance
with Castro. The Stockholm is named for an infamous case in Sweden when a bank teller held
hostage for less than a week became bonded to her captor who held her in a bank vault. Here' 5 how it
works. First, you are suddenly captured by a stranger who convinces you that you will be killed if you
resist. You are shocked, scared and unable to do anything without his permission. You cannot walk,

talk, eat or use a toilet. But then, little by little, you are allowed "the gifts of life.'' You are like an infant,

totally dependent on your mother for survival. As you receive these gifts of life, without consciously
realizing what is occurring, you feel some warmth even love -- toward that giver of life. You deny
(again, unconsciously) that this is the very same person who has placed your life in jeopardy. You are
bonded to your slave-master. There are other elements to the Stockholm but that is the one
that describes Castro's initial hold over Michelle, Amanda and Gina.

Additionally, they were each isolated and degraded. In those conditions, many will become
enslaved. Depression can sap your will and-energy. Rational calculation of risk to self
and risk to others can keep a person in an abusive relationship. 2207 Seymour Street is now an
infamous address. How many homes are there across America where a tyrant keeps his battered wife
and sexually abused children under emotional bondage? Experts in my field know many older sisters
who feared fortheir young sisters should they leave the tyrant's home. So they stay.

I do not have enough facts to fully explain why these captives did not attempt to escape until a decade
after capture. But I know this. They came out alive. They came out when they could come out.

They acted with fortitude, courage and grace. We have reason to be proud of them and to be inspired
by them.
Yours truly,_

The Ties That Bind Captive to Captor- Stockholm
Frank MD

The curious case oi'Bohbi Parker, the missing deputy warden's wife who was found living I years later with the escaped
convict who kidnapped her, has pop once again citing Stockholm But what is the Stockholm
how was it identified. and does it really apply in this situation?

Three decades ago, alter a rash of kidnappings, behavioral scientists and police negotiators began for the first time to
collaborate intensely. At the time, I was the on the National Task Force on Terrorism and Disorder. Shortly after I

took up the post, we became intrigued with the strange case of Kristin, a Swedish bank teller who was held hostage in a vault at
Sveriges Kreditbank in Stockholm for several days in August 1973.

Kristin had become enamored with Olsson, her armed assailant; after she was released, she broke off her engagement to her
fiance. And both during and after her captivity, she larnbasted then-Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme.

Kidnap and hostage experts already were aware that in certain cases an unexpected bond can than between captor and captive.

Anna Freud called a similar situation that occurred in Nazi concentration camps "identification with the
- aggressor."

But what I saw in the Stoclrholm case and at least adozcn times afterward - and what I learned from a year of interviewing
people once held hostage - was not identification and not behavior so aggressive that it would emulate a sadistic guard.

in Stockholm there is a sudden, terrifying capture. The hostage is stunned, shocked and often certain that he or she
will dic. The hostage then becomes like an infant. He or she can't talk, eat, move or use a toilet without

But then. in every one of these cases, little by little, small acts of kindness by one of' the captors evoke feelings deeper than
reltcf. 'We know they were killers, but they gave us blankets. cigarettes," one Dutch ex--hostage told me, going on to explain
the warmth and compassion he felt toward the men who chose not to kill him. it would he akin to what an infant feels when he

gets attention, relieving his thirst, hunger, wetness or fear of neglect - a primitive gratitude for the gift of life, an emotion that
eventually develops and differentiates into varieties of affection and love.

The attachment goes both ways. The captor often develops reciprocal feelings toward the hostage. When he does. we on the
outside, concemed with rescue, have an advantage. The hostage~taker wants to protect the hostage. But both captor and hostage
have little trust in us and may come to hate us. We are the common enemy.

That is howl defined the ibr FBI and Scotland Yard negotiators.

Could Stockholm explain a decade-long relationship between a married mother of two and the convicted murderer
who says he abducted and threatened her? It could ifshe went through the stages ofshock, tenor and regression that are seen in
sudden captures, and ifshe developed the ironic and profound positive feelings spontaneously and without conscious control.
But if', by contrast, she made a calculated choice to stay with her assailant (or to leave with him in the first place). perhaps out
of fear of harm to her faintly, perhaps out for a different life, then the would not apply.

Although the was defined to help negotiators and incident commanders choose effective strategies when managing a
hostage situation, it has other applications.

The significance of Stockholm goes heyond rare instances of kidnapping and hostage-taking. It explains aspects of
attachment to battering and incestuous fathers. it is not just conscious, willful behavior to avoid punishment. It is
regression and recovery ofa powerful, primitive feeling toward a giver of life.

Re: Cleveland Captives on Dr.fuckin Phil

At least they are still alive. The 60s story of Sylvia Likens is way more horrifying imo

The area is crazy so keep that in mind when you hear of the reports of the police ignoring calls.
its not that bad and you dont live minutes if you are crossing a bridge over the valley to get to that area
