Yoga Teacher Linda Dolloff Will Continue 16-Year Sentence for Beating Her Husband

in YD News, Yoga Crime

Latest from the Yoga Crime Blotter: sigh.

Remember the 2010 Linda Dolloff trial where she, a Maine yoga teacher, was tried for the 2009 beating of her husband senseless with a bat while he was sleeping, breaking his nose and fracturing his skull, and then attempting to cover it up by shooting herself and staging a home invasion? How time flies.

On Tuesday, Maine’s Supreme Judicial Court unanimously rejected the appeal by the 51-year-old who claimed her 2010 trial was marred by the prosecutor misrepresenting facts and expressing personal opinions. Dolloff will continue serving her 16-year sentence. Her ex-husband Jeff, who still can not recall details of the incident, is not expected to fully recover from his injuries.

Not for nothing, but there’s yoga in jail now. Maybe some fellow prison yog-inmates can remind Linda the meaning of ahimsa? It should be noted that Linda and her now estranged husband were going through a divorce at the time which makes it all okay because ‘don’t beat your soon-to-be ex-husband’ was omitted from Linda’s version of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Oy vey.

    I don’t believe for one second that this woman committed this crime! Another wrongfully convicted American citizen!!

    She is a stone-cold sociopath, so used to getting her way she never believed she’d be arrested or that a jury would find her guilty. As if a killer would arrive at a crime scene with no weapon and then just happen to come upon a gun and a bat! As if she wouldn’t be able to see an attacker standing inches away. And that 911 call? Absolutely over-the-top and hilarious!! This is a person who had both legs broken and sections of bone inserted so she could be 2 inches taller. Only a maniac would do something like that (and pay 80K to boot). A dangerous loon.
