UT: Wasatch prosecutor warns Utah senators he’s coming after them for sex-offender vote

The Utah Legislature approved a bill this past session giving judges more sentencing discretion in cases in which a defendant had consensual sex with a minor under age 14 if that defendant is under 21.

The measure passed the House 42-31 and the Senate 15-11. Gov. Gary Herbert signed it into law. It changes slightly the mandatory-minimum requirement of 25 years to life and a lifetime listing on the sex-offender registry for having sex with a minor.

But it now has a deputy in the Wasatch County attorney’s office gunning for two senators who voted for the bill and whose districts include parts of his county. Full Article

    A Very ugly king (molok)*, demigod, & lord (baal)

    “A constituent who became aware of the email has complained to the Utah elections office because King’s email came from a Wasatch County attorney’s office account. State law bars the use of government resources for political purposes or to influence the outcome of an election.

    King told me (in an email from his personal account), that he sent the email just to the two senators, not to the public. It went out after the election, he noted, so there was no attempt to sway an outcome. Even so, he said, he regrets sending it on a government email account.

    Wasatch County Attorney Scott Sweat said the email was not authorized by his office and does not reflect the county attorney’s position. Sweat did, however, formally oppose the bill.”


    I believe kings incorrect conduct is A Violation of The Public’s Trust in all it’s scenes.

    As Yehovah Lives, so should we

      You mean like how George Runner, so is a California State Senator and has a seat on the California State Board of Equalization published the following on a government website, using BoE letterhead?

      Clearly, it’s okay to use government resources to support his own bill he authored, Jessica’s Law. Man i’d love to sue this guy., as he’s directly harmed me for nearly 5 years.

      How can someone in a position of government, author a bill, then use other government offices to support the same bill, using their resources? They can, because he never got into trouble for it.

    King is old enough to know better than to send those emails on the county computer. If he thinks young adults need to ALL be PUNISHED SEVERELY, same goes to to him. You messed up King and now it’s time to pay for it the rest of your miserable life. Put him on A Registry and leave him there. No sorrys!

    good God being a registered citizen aside– how did this sentencing ever become a rational outcome:

    ” mandatory-minimum requirement of 25 years to life and a lifetime listing on the sex-offender registry for having sex with a minor.”

    And on top of it we have a psycho prosecutor going rogue on two state legislators for voting to allow a presiding magistrate judicial discretion based upon the facts and evidence.

    I think there should be a registry for psychopaths, and this prosecutor would be on it

      If this prosecutor has an elected position I feel the two senators should run ads on his God awful treatment of consenting young adults while he is running.. He wants to bury them young adults for life for a mistake. This smells like another Dennis Hastert character!

    Just more evidence that the registry is a “Bill of Attainder” when there is proof like this that Senators that try to reduce something that is too harsh and not based on real rehabilitation and reintegration goals are going to be attacked and threatened with bad publicity.

    Why shouldn’t judging be left to the judges and not mandatory one-size-fits-none punishments dictated by politicians that ignore the constitution?

  5. David

    It’s clear that this prosecutor has no respect for the very laws he is sworn to uphold. For this reason, there should be no leniency: termination from job, lifetime ban from the internet, and lifetime registration for internet offenses. We’ll teach these internet deviants a thing or two, by God!
