Judge Gives Rapist 45 Days in Jail After Suggesting 14 Year Old Victim Brought Attack On Herself


How is it that judges feel that it’s acceptable to allow rapists to get off scot free? A judge in Texas had the option of sentencing a rapist, who confessed to the crime, of up to 20 years in prison — instead, she sentenced him to 45 days, and blamed the victim for the crime.

A Texas judge has sparked national outrage after implying a 14-year-old rape victim was promiscuous and was not ‘the victim she claimed to be’.

State District Judge Jeanine Howard this week stunned the court by sentencing self-confessed rapist, Sir Young, to a mild 45-day prison term and five year probation, instead of the maximum 20-year jail stint.

Young, 20, pleaded guilty to raping the girl at Booker T. Washington High School, Dallas, in 2011 when he was 18, even as she cried out ‘no’ and ‘stop’.

While Young will be labeled a sex offender for life, Howard exempted him from standard sex offender restrictions: he doesn’t have to stay away from children, attend sex offender treatment, undergo a sex offender evaluation or refrain from watching pornography.

Howard accused the victim of having sex with other men before the rape, as well as being pregnant at one time, all of which the victim categorically denies. But even if those things were true, it still doesn’t give the judge the right to sentence a rapist to such an offensively light sentence. Its situations like these that make victims so reluctant to come forward — Judge Howard should be ashamed of herself.
