I hope this does not trigger anyone.

Following this in the news, it has made me sick to my stomach. This Judge gave 60 days to an admitted child rapist who raped this girl from the ages of 6 to 10. The story is below.

There is an online petition here.

I signed it.

Thanks,
Jon

I just added my name to the petition.

I cannot understand why the judge was so lenient, as a case such as this would normally be at least eight years, and in some cases life.

Not knowing the full case facts, it is difficult to know why he made that decision.

He does however face life in prison if he does not follow the directions of the judge, and I guess he wont.

Possibly the state will be able to appeal the decision, who knows?

The only thing I know, is that this kid gets a life sentence, just hope she gets the best help,

I guess this Judge hasn't read the mountains of research and case histories that doom children because pedophiles are not "rehabilitated."

I signed the petition too.

ROCK ON........Trish

sadanddown,

Thanks for posting this. The judge's explanation really riled me up:

Quote:

Really? What about the soul of the little girl? Or doesn't that figure into this guy's calculations?

Abusers everywhere must be setting their sights on Vermont.

Larry
