Was judge in Palo Alto sex case swayed by fear of Brock Turner fallout?

[The Mercury News]

PALO ALTO — ____ ____ thought everything was set: he’d struck a deal to serve a year in county jail for having sex with a 15-year-old girl who claimed she was an adult.

But when the victim showed up at ____’s sentencing hearing to ask that he be sent to state prison and required to register as a sex offender for life, the case took a surprising turn.

In a rare move, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Vincent J. Chiarello pulled the plug on the deal he had helped negotiate, which had included letting ____voluntarily go to jail three months before the agreement was to be finalized. In explaining his change of heart, the judge said he agreed with the victim that ____ would be a danger to others unless he were imprisoned.

    At least mostly positive comments on the site against the judge, and against the “victim” who claimed numerous times to be an age of 20 years, and for the person being persecuted.

      Now, we will have to wait to see what is the final for Mr. Ryan…sad the Judge may be relected and knows he’s being watched and knocked -TKO – out the PD’s and DA’s agreement on the Plea Bargin. Interesting article from The Mercury. Worth reading more. I am SURE that they’re individuals on here where the ‘victim’ has cried out Post the Facto when statements reflected in admittance of guilt for stating a lie about over 18 when they in fact where a minor here in Calif. But then nothing happens to that individual as they are no longer guilty. Why did she reach out for dating on a dating app if she is still going through Trauma from the last situation? Does this make any sense. Then reading about Mr. Ryan’s activiities, if they are true, the DA always seems to inflate and the LEO’s writing for cause of arrest to bump up crimes to stick when they are NOT fact is interesting. That’s happened over the last decades too. Gotta ask for those valid ID’s and DL’s from the Victim prior to engagement. OH! Of course not from the police on the other side faking to lure folks (not just men) to fall to prey for the Victim? The decoy? Hmmm. Mr. Ryan did what was asked and then the fearmongering (with the judge’s outcome for himself or what the Public Eye would see and ears hear about the final outcome, granting the Plea Deal, making the Judge look bad at what just happened last year when the Stanford stud. did behind the dumpster on campus, and left the state. Hmm
