BEACON TRANSCRIPT – The case has been finalized as the woman gets sentenced for fatal injection of penis enlargement, ruled under ‘homicide’. Kasia River pleaded guilty to her charges, and received prison sentence for the next 5 years, to be released on parole only after she serves 85% of her time.
In May 2011, 22-year old Justin Street headed over to Rivera’s home so she could inject his penis with silicone in the hopes that it would enlarge it. However, the kind of material she used was not one used in proper medical procedures. The injection spread directly into Street’s bloodstream, shutting down his organs, and killing him later that day.
A medical examiner has ruled that Street died due to a silicone embolism, and authorities filed his death as ‘homicide’. Rivera, now 38 years old, pleaded guilty to her charges on September 8th, and was now convinced to half a decade in prison due to “reckless manslaughter”. The woman admitted that she had no medical training nor was she licensed to perform the procedure that led to the victim’s death.
When the prosecutor, William Neafsey, asked her whether she was the one to inject the silicone into Street’s penis, she readily replied ‘yes’. According to her attorney, Olubukola Adetula, River has “accepted responsibility for her actions”, and now wishes only to move on with her life. However, there was still the tragedy that a man perished due to reckless actions.
Neafsey stated that she had no place sticking needles into anyone. The prosecutors offered a 5-year sentence in exchange for a guilty plea, which was accepted. Her attorney stated that Rivera was completely cooperative during the investigation, and turned herself in when she knew that the police was looking for her.
She will be given credit for the 8 months already served in the county prison, and will require to serve up to 4 years before she might be permitted to be released on parole. Rivera, who was working as a bartender at that moment, might also be deported back to her homeland, Jamaica, after she completes her sentence in the United States.
The trial was supposed to be held in May, but accusations of attempting to tamper with the jury had delayed proceedings. Two of the 20 jury members reported a man approaching them and offering $5,000 in exchange of ruling in favor of Rivera. Reportedly, one of the jurors gave the man his number, after which he was contacted by a woman he believes was River herself.
The Superior Court Judge Ronald Wigler investigated the matter, and interviewed all 20 jurors. He dismissed all of them, and revoked Rivera’s bail. The woman denied her participation in the matter, and claimed that the man acted on his own, without her encouragement or prompting.
