CO: Legislature to blame for sentencing quandary (Opinion)

I feel compelled to respond to Chandler McCorkle’s guest opinion (“Judge failed rape victim, society,” Daily Camera, Aug. 14) because it proceeds from woefully erroneous assumptions about the nature of sex offense probation and sentencing. Ms. McCorkle states that the sentence means that sex offender probationary sentences do not carry “true repercussion(s),” and the judge’s sentence was “naïve [and] unthinkably stupid.” With all due respect, she could not be more wrong.

    And that’s an extremely honest view of the reality of being convicted on one or more sex offense charges in many states. No state can be used as an example of going soft on sex offense conviction consequences because none of them approach anywhere near soft. Even federal convictions are harsh and in many cases more disastrous than state cases.

    Judges JUDGE! He made a judgement, that’s his job!

    You don’t have to like it. I didn’t like the judgment I got, but too bad!
