I object to the young woman who attacked the man with a baseball bat being identified as a “victim of sexual abuse.” The article plainly states that there has been an accusation made. Not a conviction. This irresponsible, yellow journalism is unconscionable. It certainly implies that the man who was beaten is a sex offender and deserved what he got! “Innocent until proven guilty” no longer exists in this country.

The sentences are a total farce. These criminals should have been at the very least charged with mayhem along with the attempted murder. I agree with the comment that basically says this girl/criminal is the one that placed herself in a position to be harmed. And what is a teenager doing getting totally wasted on vodka anyway? To me this indicates a teenager plagued with some grave emotional problems and a father with some sub-standard parenting skills. These are some creepy people; (I’m also referring to the prosecutor and judge)
