Jake Patterson is one monstrous freak.

People's fear fucks with my head so bad. It's always the first thing I think about in these kind of stories and I tend to dwell on it. The horror of it all is almost impossible to wrap my head around.

There's no death penalty in Wisconsin, but Patterson received the highest possible punishment under the law.

Yesterday, a judge sentenced Patterson to serve life in prison without parole, calling him "one of the most dangerous men to ever walk on this planet." 

In a statement read by an attorney, Jayme Closs, who was not present in court, said Patterson "took a lot of things away from me. It makes me the most sad he took away my mom and dad."

Closs said she used to love going to school, going out with friends and dancing, but Patterson also took those things away from her. She said she used to love her room and her belongings, but those all now bring back terrible memories because of Patterson. Going out in public, she said, now makes her scared and anxious.

But Closs also described what she said Patterson could never take from her: her freedom, courage and spirit.

"He thought he could own me, but he was wrong," Closs said in the statement. "I was smart. I watched his routine, and I took back my freedom."

 "I was brave, and he was not," the statement said. She said Patterson tried to make her "like" him, but failed.

"He will never have power over me," Closs said in the statement. "I feel like I have some power over him, because I get to tell the judge what I think should happen to him."

Closs said Patterson tried to "steal" her for 88 days, "and he didn't care who he hurt or who he killed to to that. He should stay locked up forever."

Speaking before he was sentenced, Patterson cried and apologized. "Obviously I would do, like, absolutely anything to take back what I did," Patterson said. "You know I would bring them back. I don't care about me. I'm just sorry." Boo fucking hoo.

That poor kid. I hope she is able to lead some kind of normal life knowing she is loved & safe. I read the police report of what happened that night and it was godawful. Her dad probably never knew what hit him but her mom did and she died absolutely terrified. I hope the rest of his life behind bars is a living hell.
