He was sentenced to death in California in 2010 for five murders committed in that state between 19.Prosecutors said that Alcala "toyed" with his victims, strangling them until they lost consciousness, then waiting until they revived, sometimes repeating this process several times before finally killing them.His answers were charming and witty, making the audience giggle and convincing good-looking Cheryl Bradshaw behind the wall to pick him.“We’re going to have a great time together, Cheryl”, told Alcala when Cheryl picked him as the lucky winner.
He was paroled after 34 months, in 1974, under the "indeterminate sentencing" program popular at the time, which allowed parole boards to release offenders as soon as they demonstrated evidence of rehabilitation.
To evade the resulting arrest warrant he left the state and enrolled in the NYU film school, using the name "John Berger".
In 1971, he obtained a counseling job at a New Hampshire arts camp for children using a slightly different alias, "John Burger".
