Man sentenced to 50 years in Vancouver Lake shooting

first_imgPedro “Junior” Godinez Jr. was sentenced Wednesday to more than 50 years in prison for the attempted murder, robbery and kidnapping of an Oregon man near Vancouver Lake.Freddie Landstrom, 39, of Beaverton, Ore., was lured to the apartment of Godinez’s then-girlfriend, Joanna Speaks, on Nov. 28, 2012. Godinez abducted Landstrom, someone he’d never met before, at gunpoint, and led Landstrom to believe that he would live — until the point when Landstrom gave Godinez his ATM PIN numbers. Godinez shot Landstrom five times.Wounded, Landstrom escaped by fleeing in the darkness through a swamp and field until he stumbled upon Kadow’s Marina, a cluster of houseboats at 10612 N.W. Lower River Road. He sought help at one of the residences, and a woman inside called 911 because she thought he was an intruder.“One, I’m happy that there’s justice,” Landstrom said Wednesday. “Two, it’s sad because most people don’t understand this person is going to leave. I’m assuming he has some people who love him, and this will impact their lives more than anyone knows.”Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Dan Gasperino asked Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson to sentence Godinez to 50 years in prison. Johnson sentenced him to 50 years and seven months.last_img
