    Why do the courts seem to be so lenient on sexual assault and rape cases?

    No jailtime

    No jailtime

    9 months

    No jailtime

    The average prison rate for rape is 5 years

    2% of reported rapists go to jail

    These are a few cases where the assailant either got little time to no time, for raping someone. They essentially got a slap on the wrist (if that) for ruining someone's life (1/3 of rape victims suffer from ptsd), and many more have issues from it. They may have gotten on a sex offender list, but that doesn't physically stop them from claiming another victim. Really, do you check the sex offender list for every person that you meet? They can still go out in public, and find someone else. They can still lie about their offense and exploit the trust of someone to take them, or someone close to them.

    It's absolutely disgusting how many people get light sentences for atrocious acts. This guy raped 8 people. He violated the trust of them, as well as many other victims that walked through the door of his medical practice. He even violated a child, yet he's walking away with only 1 year house arrest, probation, and a entry on the sex offender list. You can say that the prison system is supposed to rehabilitate someone, but in America it doesn't; and even if he went to jail for that year, he'd still leave a fucked up excuse for a human being.

    This guy probably went to bed that night, knowing that he pretty much got away with rape.

      I can't speak for the other cases. However in this instance, the sentence was reduced because of his medical condition. If I recall correctly, dude has kidney cancer as well as other problems. It would cost the state more in free healthcare to incarcerate him than it would be to do it this way. The judge is saving the state millions in treatment costs.
