Disparity in sentencing is shocking
September 10, 2013
Let's see. Let me get this straight.
A middle-aged school teacher rapes one of his students who later kills herself. He is sentenced to serve 30 days.
A 15-year-old boy rapes young girl. The boy throws himself off a third-floor courthouse rotunda rather than face a court appearance where he was to be sentenced to 60 years and would have to serve 30 years.
Thirty days vs. 30 years! This is what we call equal justice in the state of Montana? I can hardly believe it.
