After being sentenced to death with a reprieve, life imprisonment can be reduced in accordance with the Criminal Law as long as the crime is not intentionally committed within two years. However, Wu Guangping, a primary school student, thought he was going to die. Since its all dead anyway, its better to escape from prison!
Wu Guangping and Zheng Xiaoqiang, a prisoner with the same elementary school culture, planned the escape method, just like the bridge section of comedy crime movies: using sheets and ropes as parachutes, taking advantage of the windy weather, from the roof of the prison building floated out of the high wall.
What is more irrelevant is that one day Wu Guangping fought with other prisoners and somehow accused them of premeditated escape from prison. Result A survey by the prison guards found that it was Wu Guangping himself who was really preparing to escape from prison.
Thats how it happened.
Think of yourself as dead anyway.
Zheng Xiaoqiang and Wu Guangping are prison friends in the 12 prison areas of Dongguan Prison. Zheng Xiaoqiang was born in 1992 and Wu Guangping was born in 1989. Both of them had only elementary school education.
Both are heavy criminals. Zheng Xiaoqiang was sentenced to life imprisonment by Shantou Intermediate Court in December 2013 for robbery and rape. Wu Guangping was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve in July 2013 by Guangdong Provincial High Court for intentional injury.
Being sentenced to death suspension does not mean being shot two years later. On the contrary, according to the provisions of Article 50 of the Criminal Law, if there is no intentional crime during the period of suspension of execution, the prisoner sentenced to death penalty will be commuted to life imprisonment after the expiration of two years.
However, Wu Guangping thought that he was dead anyway. Liu Mou, also a prisoner in custody, testified that Wu Guangping often whispered to Guo Mou, saying, It doesnt matter if you dont go out, it doesnt matter if you dont go out. Anyway, if you have the chance to go out, you can go out. Later, Guo Mou also said, Do it, Im not afraid of dying. Anyway, I want to die.
Prisoner Cai Mou testified that Zheng Xiaoqiang, Wu Guangping, Long Mou, Guo Mou, Liang Mou and others often gathered together to chat, and had heard them discuss escape matters together.
Huang Mou, the prisoner, testified that Zheng Xiaoqiang and Liang Mou lived in the same prison with beds next to each other. They often leaned together to chat, say resistance to reform, and even abuse the police. On October 1, 2014, Liang asked Zheng Xiaoqiang, If you can run, can you run? Zheng answered, Of course, run out.
Make a parachute and fly out of prison in the wind
Beginning in September 2014, Zheng Xiaoqiang proposed specific methods of escape: using sheets and ropes as parachutes to float out of the prison wall from the roof of the prison building when the wind blows.
One day at the end of December 2014, when he was about to finish his work, Zheng Xiaoqiang saw his prisoner Yang Mou sitting aside and took a blue-and-white striped quilt and asked him to help him make a bag, four or fifty centimeters wide. Zheng Xiaoqiang had cut the sheets and asked him to help the car.
Huang Mou, the prisoner, said that he saw Zheng Xiaoqiang getting on a blue and white striped sheet at the workshop and turning it into a bag, which was later stopped by the team leader.
In response, Zheng Xiaoqiang admitted in his confession that he had proposed a plan of using sheets and ropes as parachutes to escape from prison. Wu Guangping also admitted in his confession that Zheng Xiaoqiang proposed to him that he use sheets and ropes as a parachute escape plan, but he was not ready to make parachute materials.
Later, Zheng Xiaoqiang proposed to collect prisoners from the same prison area and take prison guards as hostages to escape from the prison. Later, he and Wu Guangping repeatedly solicited and incited Longmou, Guomou and Liang to escape from prison. Guo Mou and Longmu are also suspended criminals. Liang Mous remaining sentence is 13 years and 1 month.
At noon one day in January 2015, Zheng Xiaoqiang and Liang Mou also debated whether there were bullets in the armed police gun. Zheng said yes, Liang said no. Later, Zheng Xiaoqiang believed Liang Mous words. Since then, Zheng Xiaoqiang said to others, The armed police gun is not live ammunition, it is empty package ammunition, can not kill people.
When we were thinking about the situation after going out, Guo Mou, who was also a suspended death offender, told Zheng Xiaoqiang that after going out, he asked my eldest brother to take us to buy clothes first.
Guo confessed after the case, Wu Guangping said to himself many times go home, go away and so on. Wu Guangping said that he planned to prepare yarn shears and hammers, climb out of the prison wall first, and then use yarn shears and hammers to pierce the prison wall, so as to escape from prison. He also said that if he met the police during his escape, he would kill them.
Wu Guangping admits that Zheng Xiaoqiang did put forward the new plan later, but it was not implemented because of lack of tools.
The prison break-out plan soon ended in internal strife. On February 8, 2015, Wu Guangping and Guo Mou fought each other over trivial matters. According to the statement of the judgment of the first trial, Wu Guangping suddenly reported Guos premeditated escape to the prison for some reason.
The jailbreak finally happened.
However, the investigation by the prison guards found that the prosecutor Wu Guangping was the main planner of the escape, and Zheng Xiaoqiang and Wu Guangping were subsequently screened in isolation.
The court found that Zheng Xiaoqiang proposed the intention of escaping prisoners and conspired with Wu Guangping to collect prisoners to escape from prison, which was confirmed by several witnesses. Zheng Xiaoqiang himself admitted that he had instructed Wu Guangping to collect others and create conditions for organizing and implementing prison escape by means of trial, temptation and encouragement.
After Zheng Xiaoqiang and Wu Guangping planned to escape from prison, they tried to select, collect and encourage others to prepare for the escape, which belonged to the crime preparation of making conditions for escape. Their actions constituted the crime of organizing escape. However, in view of the fact that the acts of the two persons are still in the preparatory stage of crime and have not caused actual damage consequences, they are exempted from punishment according to law.
In November 2018, the Guangdong Provincial High Court sentenced Zheng Xiaoqiang to escape from prison, exempted from punishment, and concurrently sentenced him to life imprisonment for several crimes with the remaining sentence of the previous crime; Wu Guangping decided to exempt him from criminal punishment for organizing the escape, and concurrently sentenced him to death suspension for several crimes with the remaining sentence of the previous crime.
For Wu Guangping, the probation period of his death suspension was from July 23, 2013 to July 22, 2015. If he did not toss and turn around blindly, he could be commuted to life imprisonment more than five months after the case was committed. Now, his death penalty suspension period will be recalculated.
