Van der Sloot’s Criminal History

Prison isn’t meant to be easy, but Joran van der Sloot’s time behind bars has just gotten even worse. Van der Sloot was initially jailed in 2012 after pleading guilty to the murder of Stephany Flores. He strangled her in a hotel room in 2010.

Sentencing and Additional Charges

Prime Suspect

“Somebody said, ‘Oh, that’s Joran van der Sloot. He likes to prey upon young female tourists.'”

Van der Sloot became a prime suspect but repeatedly denied involvement. In 2006, van der Sloot told ABC News, “The last time I saw her, she was sitting on the sand by the ocean.”

Extradition and Confession

Years went by, but authorities could never get him to admit to any wrongdoing. Then in 2023, van der Sloot was extradited from Peru to the U.S. due to extortion and wire fraud charges related to Holloway’s case. In exchange for a lighter sentence, van der Sloot revealed disturbing details of Holloway’s murder, admitting to kicking her and hitting her with a cinder block.

Prison Attack

In April 2024, van der Sloot was attacked by two inmates in Peru’s Challapalca Prison, resulting in minor injuries.
