Well Pat I can tell you for Neighbors who lived next to Paul Flores here in San Pedro well they’re glad that this has finally come to an end but for Kristen Smart’s family and for prosecutors they did not expect this outcome after Seeking Justice for nearly three decades every day not a single day goes by that.
