Chelsea King

Another solid case for ONE STRIKE LAW

John Albert Gardner III received a very light sentence in 2000 after prosecutors ignored a a psychiatrist’s warning and suggestion of a stronger sentence.  Prosecutors noted John Gardner’s lack of criminal history, and tossed in the standard “wanted to spare the victim the trauma of testifying” card when seeking the five year prison term for the sexual assault of a 13 year old girl.

Chelsea King, 17, beloved daughter, honor student, athlete, friend to all, has gone missing and John Gardner is behind bars. He is being charged with her rape and murder.
But now Amber Dubois, who disappeared last year on her way to school, was identified through dental records after police found her remains Saturday in rugged terrain near Pala. Police had refocused attention on the Dubois case after Gardner was arrested last week in connection with the murder of Chelsea King, a high school senior from nearby Poway.
Another woman has identified Gardner as the man who tried to attack her Dec. 27, 2009 while she was jogging in the same general vicinity where both Chelsea and Amber vanished. The woman in that attack managed to escape.
John Albert Gardner III, lived a couple of miles from where Dubois vanished near Escondido High School.
