She also noted that registering as a sex offender for the rest of one's life is a pretty harsh punishment in and of itself.

    She also thought the community service at a rape crisis center was sensible and likened it to drunk drivers being forced to confront victims of drunk driving.

    I don't often agree with her and while I'm not sure about the last she seems on target otherwise.
    I mean, that's kind of what judges are for. They weigh the crime and evidence and hand out punishment appropriately. It is possible that one need not punish this individual for the full 20 years and on registries to ruin his life and all sorts of other unreasonable and infinite punishments we come up with in our revenge fueled society.

    In Arkansas he would receive a sentence of ten to forty years, or LWOP. And people say Arkansans are stupid.

    Umm - first time for everything. Does that make rape any less bad?

    And who gives a **** about her sexual history - like that denies her the right to say no.
    Giving out a probation before judgement on an admitted rape charge is completely insane but to announce (falsely?) that the victim, a minor, was promiscuous and had given birth should be grounds for prosecution. The judge involved is a demorat and is running unopposed. Fortunately this case is no longer hers - we will see what happens.

    None of you know this kid or the accuser, so you are speaking from the hole where **** is supposed to come out of.

    I was wondering who would try and make this political....

    Should we mention that the 'Affluenza' case was also in Texas and heard before a RepubliCON judge????

    Jean Boyd, 323rd Family District Court. Just a small matter of killing 4 people while drunk driving....

    To me it would appear that in Texas the political affiliation matters little...

    He even admitted to doing that (having sex with someone who did not want to have sex with him) and is getting off almost completely with no punishment.

    That would be bizarre and moronic enough, but this is also a case in which the victim is only 14 years old.

    This judge needs to be committed to a mental institution for her insanity. Because not only did she give him virtually no punishment, she also gave him community service at a rape crisis center, what kind of moronic judge does that. You force a rapist on rape victims? How idiotic is that. This lady needs to have her judgeship taken from her.

    Do we need to?

    Since when does shaping opinions based on facts given regarding a criminal trial a matter of personal knowledge of the individual? I think that's the problem: people think that 'he was a good kid' amounts to something, here.

    No means no. Doesn't matter how many partners the girl has had. Doesn't matter how old they are.
