    Alabama Man Won't Serve Prison Time for Raping 14-Year-Old

    An Alabama man convicted of raping a teenage girl will serve no prison time. On Wednesday, a judge in Athens, Alabama, ruled that the rapist will be punished by serving two years in a program aimed at nonviolent criminals and three years of probation.
    Man rapes a girl twice when she is 14, and again when she is 18, and serves no time? This is insane. The good news is the update to this article. The district attorney is reviewing his options, and is not dropping this. In Alabama, there are sentencing guideline which the judge violated, so if the DA appeals the sentence, the scumbag will end up doing hard time, and hopefully, there will also be plenty of hard time happening in his butt, once he arrives at prison. He can see how HE likes being raped. And the judge? I am sure that he will not survive the next election.

    Article is here.

    Never understood how these judges' views can be so skewed when in comes to child rapists/murderers.

    And people have the nerve to deny that we have a "rape culture" in the US.

    I noticed this:

    Limestone County Circuit Judge James Woodroof sentenced Clem to 10 years in prison for each of the second-degree rape charges and 20 years for first-degree rape. But Woodroof structured the sentence in such a way that Clem will only be hit with community corrections and probation. Clem will have to register as a sex offender and pay fines and restitution—a total of $2,381, according to the sentencing document provided to Mother Jones—but he will not serve jail time unless he violates the terms of his sentencing.
    He actually was sentenced to prison, but the judge took measures to prevent getting cornered into Alabama law that would require him to go to prison without possible parole until he was a pretty old guy.

    Well, if anything, we'll see how this "new technique" works out. Liberals always clamor for rehabilitation, even on crimes like this where recidivism rates are immense. Time will tell.

    I think the answer is to get rid of minimum sentencing laws and let the judge actually judge.

    "This summer, a Montana judge sentenced Stacey Rambold, a teacher, to 30 days in jail for repeatedly raping one of his students, who was 14 years old at the time. Rambold's victim, Cherice Moralez, committed suicide while the rape trial was ongoing. The judge, G. Todd Baugh, said that Moralez had been "as much in control of the situation" as Rambold—who was 35 years her senior—and that Moralez was "older than her chronological age."

    There's the rub. Either answer, minimum sentencing or allowing judges to fully determine sentencing, produces pros and cons. There will always be judges who go off the rails. In any event, it's up to the people to decide which set of pros and cons they wish to live with. In many states they've chosen minimum sentencing.

    In this case the judge shows the neccessity of minimum sentencing laws.

    Re: Alabama Man Won't Serve Prison Time for Raping 14-Year-Old

    There seems to be an all-too-prevalent mindset in this country that unless a girl, even a very young girl of 12-13 years old, was beaten within an inch of her life and her internal organs ruptured by the brutality of the rape, that she must have consented to and shared responsibility for the sexual contact, no matter what the age of her rapist, and it's up to the victim to prove otherwise.

    It's like that needing five male witnesses to prove a rape really happened or the victim herself is judged guilty of adultery kind of thing that is so prevalent in the Middle East, India, Africa and other female-hostile parts of the world. Women in America are really lucky though, because the rapist's family isn't allowed to stone us to death. Yay.
