John Fecteau really knows how to guarantee a maximum sentencing. The Seattle man was arrested for robbery and assault charges after a crime spree. When arrested, police say that Fecteau proclaimed that he loved stabbing people, asked if he severed one victim’s spine, and said that “It is better than doing meth.”
Fecteau is accused of knifing two people and robbing a third person at knifepoint. Police say that Fecteau told him that he was hoping that he had succeeded in severing one victim’s spine. He added “I’m going to stab one person every day” due before slogan: “It is better than doing meth.”
Fecteau’s first victim was a fellow homeless man. Fecteau had argued with a woman for sitting on his piece of card and, when her companion rose next to her, Fecteau stabbed him in the back of the neck and then stuck him a second time behind his ear. Fecteau then allegedly stabbed the woman in the hand.
It was not hard for the police to identify Fecteau from this horn and other facial tattoos.
Only 90 minutes later, another report of a robbery in came in after a man was robbed at knifepoint and described Fecteau. Fecteau already stabbed at the man and chased him half of block before given up.
When arrested, Fecteau is quoted as saying “Did that kid die yet? I got them, the two under the bridge . . . I licked their fluids off the blade. That guy, I hope I severed his spine.”
The victim was fortunately treated and released.
Fecteau has guaranteed a maximum sentence. In addition to his extensive comments, he has an extensive criminal history in Washington, Oregon and California. In Washington alone, he has convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, as well as 15 less serious assault charges.
Despite his statement that he was trying to kill the first victim, he has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault and one count of first-degree robbery. It is an interesting line to draw given the alleged admission of his desire to kill the victim.
