A Texas judge used those words to justify the lighter-than-light sentence she gave to a rapist, telling the Dallas Morning News that the 14-year-old victim had three previous sexual partners and had given birth before the sexual assault.
“There are rape cases that deserve life. There are rape cases that deserve 20 years,” Howard told the Dallas Morning News. “Every now and then you have one of those that deserve probation. This is one of those and I stand by it."
For 3,278 people, it was nonviolent offenses like stealing a $159 jacket or serving as a middleman.... An estimated 65% of them are Black. Many of them were struggling with mental illness, drug dependency or financial desperation when they committed their crimes.
None of them will ever come home to their parents and children. And taxpayers are spending billions to keep them behind bars.

u know there was a time in this world,, America as well, not too long ago, u rape a woman,,any woman,, u hung from a tree untill dead. PERIOD.
But i guess with women's equality , with men position now a days,, "it just don't matter anymore",,45 days , half that on good behaviour,, such a joke.
And i suppose u treat a female like a slut all there life,,its there fault, not the setters of example.
Rape victims have to take more responsibility for their own actions.
