Cleveland kidnapping victims wanted to avoid trial

Written by 

CLEVELAND (AP) - Newly released documents show that three women held in a Cleveland house before escaping a year ago Tuesday all hoped to avoid a trial for their captor.

The documents released by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office Monday say the women understood the need to put suspect Ariel Castro in prison for life.

The documents also indicate that the FBI and the Cleveland Police Department did not want the women to be re-traumatized by a trial.

The women were held for a decade before escaping after one of them broke through a screen door.

Castro pleaded guilty to hundreds of charges last year and committed suicide in prison shortly after beginning a life sentence.
