Per reports, the 48-year-old child ra-ist, Bloom, was serving a 40 to 80-year sentence after he was convicted of ra-ing a child. He was charged with 865 counts of child ra-e after being taken into custody. The child predator was arrested for subjecting a 5-year-old boy to repeated se-ual abuse for years. He faced 216 counts of ra-e of a child, 216 counts of involuntary deviate se-ual intercourse with a child, 216 counts of aggravated indecent assault of a child, 120 counts of statutory se-ual assault of a child 11 years or older, 96 counts of statutory se-ual assault, and a single count of endangering the welfare of a child.
When he realized that he was facing over 15,000 years in prison, he agreed to the deal of the century. For entering a guilty plea, the prosecution dismissed all but 5 counts of first-degree felony child ra-e, which resulted in Bloom being sentenced to no less than 40 years but not more than 80 years in prison. Unfortunately, Bloom could have been released in his lifetime, leaving countless children in danger. But, his 34-year-old cellmate had other plans. Prosecutors said that the 34-year-old inmate, Jacob, was charged with criminal homicide and other related charges in connection with his cellmate’s, Bloom, death at the state prison.
The 48-year-old child ra-ist was found unresponsive in his cell on August 29, and efforts to revive him proved unsuccessful. According to a state trooper, Bloom, who had been convicted of multiple child ra-e charges, had bruises all over his face and markings on his neck indicating he had been choked by some type of string. Jacob reportedly signed a plea deal during jury selection, pleading guilty to the lower charge of voluntary manslaughter. All other charges were withdrawn as part of the deal. Judge Ammerman sentenced him to seven-and-one-half years to 15 years.
During an interview with investigators, Jacob reportedly said that he’d been drinking that day and was “passed out in his bunk” when Bloom woke him by touching him inappropriately. He stated that he jumped out of bed and assaulted Bloom, during which Bloom bit his finger, causing him to fly into a rage. Jacob also said that he hit the call button during the assault, and again after he was done beating Bloom. “I think he’s dead,” Jacob told the guards, according to the affidavit.
