9 months for raping his sister

Re: 9 months for raping his sister

It hurts my brain trying to comprehend the judge that decided 9 months was okay. It shouldn't matter that it was his first offense. There needs to be harsher sentencing for rapists. My uncle raped his 10 year old step daughter in 1996 and he got less than a year and didn't lose his job. His wife and biological kids left and never spoke to him again. He still had a good life up until he died from cancer. His parents and siblings acted like it never happened. It's not fair. My step cousin became addicted to meth and died from an overdose when she was 19. All because of what he did.

That sentence was requested in a joint submission by both Crown and defense lawyers. Prior to sentencing there would have been a pre-sentence report prepared. There is information in that not released to the public that influences sentencing. We also don't know the victim's wishes and what steps toward reconciliation the accused has taken in the past two years. We might not think 9 months is long enough, but what length of incarceration would be? A young woman has experienced trauma that will never completely go away.

correct, and that is exactly why 9 months is not long enough

So he free after 9 months, meanwhile she may never be free. In this case the criminal gets off with a very light slap on the wrists.

Someone that is willing to rape his own sister has absolutely no guilty conscience, so thinking that this would/could be his life long sentence is really stupid (well anyone who thinks this way).

there is no fixing someone who is mentally screwed up in the head enough to rape their own sister.they are beyond rehabilitation .they either need to be removed from society or rendered impotent

I'm actually surprised that he got 9 months! It doesn't matter how long the sentence is, his actions have changed his sister's and probably his entire family's lives forever. Locking him up forever isn't going to change that and will probably make the sister feel worse.
The sister's views would have been part of the sentencing report. In this case both sides asked for the same sentence.

Unfortunately, sibling or step-sibling or cousin sexual activities/assaults are far more common than many might think. Parents need to teach their children about sexual urges and feelings and set clear boundaries. Parents need to discuss personal safety with their children and walk them through "what if" scenarios. Many young people never have anyone discuss their physical development and sex drive with them. It is devastating to all when an assault happens. And it happens in all types of families.

Again, while we might not agree with the sentence, we weren't party to all the information the court was.

He should have recieved 9 years, and probation for as many years as it takes his sister to fully recover, if ever.

I can't believe that some people without expertise or extraordinary understanding think that they know better than trained experts. I wonder what other areas of expertise they think they know better than the experts. What a disgrace to our education system.

Are we defending the ruling some more. Do u happen to be the judge by chance.

Or maybe you would be an expert witness.

I know someone who had to by employment be in that court room. People were sickened by the judgement . Most everyone but u is disgusted . Care to explain yourself as to why you feel the need to defend this.
