Here is another case of our justice system running morally bankrupt and making more and more Americans frustrated and angry.
A man was convicted in Cheyenne County, Nebraska for sexually assaulting a minor child.(www.pasadenastarnews.com) The man could have been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. What do you think the judge gave this pervert? 10 years probation!!! Why she did is even more perverse.
The judge, Kristine Cecava said that the convicted pervert would not survive in prison because...Short!!!
In the coming up with this sentence, among other things she said the pervert would be electronically monitored for the first four months of the sentence and never to be alone with anyone under 18 years old and date or live with a woman whose children are under 18. The topper is that he was ordered to get rid of his pornography! Oh, I bet that he is shuddering with fear!
Even the Nebraska chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union could not believe it. The following from the legal director, Amy Miller, "I have never heard of anything like this before." NO KIDDING!!
When the ACLU can not believe it, you know something is wrong.
So, a short criminal can not survive in prison. I have a solution to that. Do not commit the crime-except in Cheyenne County Nebraska and hopefully you get "Judge" Cecava.
There is nothing more to say than this is a perversion of justice that a "judge" can hand out a farce of a sentence. It is a slap in the face of the jury system that we have and, with its faults, usually gets it right. It is decisons like this that make Americans of all stripes angry. Why would a judge show such concern for a 5 foot 1 inch criminal and not for the rights of the 12 year old victim? It is why the more we have judges like this that Americans lose faith in the system.
It is the perception to the average American that a judge is above the law. Because of the excellent reporting of Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly(www.foxnews.com), more sick judges are being exposed for bending over backwards for the rights of the criminals and convicted ones at that.
An independent judiciary, like the executive and legislative branches of our government can not go to the extremes of the far right or left. Some common sense must prevail.
Otherwise, we will keep getting sick judges who can not met out justice and put their own personal feelings in the way they sentence, or lack thereof.
