Our View: Life in jail for McCullough is the right fate
Practically speaking, even the lightest sentence probably would have constituted a life sentence for 73-year-old Jack D. McCullough.
But Judge James Hallock’s decision Monday to sentence McCullough to life imprisonment for the Dec. 3, 1957, kidnapping and murder of 7-year-old Maria Ridulph of Sycamore seems exactly right.
McCullough walked free for decades after Ridulph’s disappearance and death shocked Sycamore. He lived a long life without having to face the consequences that finally befell him Monday.
