Punishment That Doesn’t Fit the Crime

San Francisco — When ____ ____ was 10 years old, he and his older brother initiated a touching “game” with their 8-year-old sister. “None of us knew what we were doing,” he said, and he soon forgot about the episode. But later that year, 1998, his sister’s teacher found out and notified the authorities. Just weeks after ____’s 11th birthday, police officers handcuffed him outside his fifth-grade classroom.

____ and his parents agreed to a guilty plea in exchange for two years of probation, which he spent in a foster home. (His brother also pleaded guilty.) When he returned to his family, they were stunned to learn that he was listed on the Texas sex offender registry website, and would be for 10 years. He was just 13 years old. Neighbors threw a Molotov cocktail at his house and shot and killed his family’s dog. Local newspapers listed him by name along with adult sex offender “monsters” in the area. Full Article

  1. The Unforgiven

    The headline is certainly misleading as none of this is “punishment”.

    “Only 1 percent to 7 percent of children who commit sexual offenses will do it again — much lower than the 13 percent recidivism rates for adult sexual offenders.”

    I wonder where they get these #’s from? No studies are cited. Lazy reporting.

      Somewhere dark and smelly. Same place their heads reside.

      I’d be willing to bet that if someone hacked the emails of “journalist’s” much like they did with the DNC and Clinton’s, you’d see much of the same collusion. Perhaps between government agencies and news outlets.
