STOP THIS SENTENCING SHIT!

I have read about several cases where the rapists served no time.

<snip> A family court judge in New Jersey has been roundly admonished by the state’s appeals court for ruling that a teenager accused of raping an intoxicated girl and then sharing a video of the assault with friends deserved leniency because he came from a “good family,” was an Eagle Scout and attended “an excellent school.”

“He is clearly a candidate for not just college but probably for a good college,” Judge James Troiano of Superior Court wrote of the 16-year-old defendant, identified only as G.M.C. in court documents. Troiano went on to question whether the rape victim and her family had understood “the devastating effect” that pressing charges would have “on G.M.C.’s life.”

The judge also argued that rape “tradition[ally]” involved two or more males using a weapon to threaten a victim in an “abandon[ed] house,” “shed” or “shack” — circumstances not matching G.M.C.’s alleged crime.<snip>

1. "One day, he may sit on the Supreme Court...."

We can’t deprive him of that opportunity simply because he raped someone, can we?

What an insane ruling.

2. "rape" traditionally involves "penetration, howsomever slight."

if 2 men and a weapon are required few would ever be convicted. this judge has got to go!

6. incredible

At least there are some sane people:

The appellate court reversed Silva’s decision and chastised the judge for her “minimization of the harm wrought on a twelve-year-old child by E.R.M., assuming her claims are true.”

Following the appellate court’s reversals, the defendants in both cases will now be tried before a grand jury as adults.

7. This is Yet Another Glaring Example of America's Deeply Ingrained Misogyny

It's more pervasive than most Americans understand. Cases such as this one occasionally shine a light on the much deeper problem.
