Sex, Lies and “Severe Impact”: In Defense of Judge Aaron Persky

_____ ____ ____ was convicted of three felony counts related to his digital penetration of an unconscious victim behind a dumpster at a frat party and sentenced to a short six month period of imprisonment. ____’s sentencing generated public outrage, especially after the long, visceral and rambling 7,400 letter by the anonymous victim read to ____ in court went viral. Deeming ____’s sentence “too lenient” and faulting the judge for considering the “severe impact” of imprisonment on ____, self-proclaimed social justice activists launched petitions on, seeking the sentencing judge’s recall.

Members of Congress—both right and left—have chimed in proclaiming that “the punishment for rape should be longer than a semester in college.” Leading the charge to remove Judge Persky is none other than a tenured Stanford University Law Professor, Estelle Freedman, a self-proclaimed progressive, who seems far more interested in gaining national attention for herself than the fundamental principles of due process and progressivism, which she brushes aside, because, well, sexual assault cases, at least to Prof. Freedman, are different.

Very good article. Balanced with truth and experience from the courtroom.

Here we go again. It is punishment, Period.

“His sentence is lifelong. He will not be able to do any of those things. Ever. His punishment will not end when he is released from his six-month jail sentence. Viewed from this angle, Brock has suffered a “severe impact,” arguably even a disproportionate impact, and any more would have simply been greater than necessary to fulfill the purposes of punishment.”

We are beating our heads against the wall until we are able to have the Supreme Court of the United States admit that registration is now in every respect, PUNISHMENT and should be eliminated.


I struggle with the idea of going after the whole destruction of the registry by it’s removal and with the standing situation by fighting it incrementally by having to dance around with that monster for ever.


Call it for what it really is… lifetime probation/parole

The Supreme Court should give all of the registration schemes the duck test.

An Eye opener! Great peice……

Decent discussion, things may change yet, heres an odd topic, since supreme courts hv ruled lifetime registration isnt cruel/unusual punishment & you get your Ca civil liberties restored (cert of rehab), how do you now find peace even though ur conviction isnt postable & you find your face posted on various mugshot websites ? the nightmare continues, btw, ca pc 243.4a is exempt but yet there I am for all to gawk at, btw Im a divorced dad w kids which makes me hv a totally different opinion about foia and excessive extensive extential violence my kids suffer daily in public sch.. vigilenteeism isnt a crime when city/county officials are the perpetraitors.. america WAKE UP !!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
