A school bus driver in Watertown, NY (that is a town near the border with Quebec, Canada) raped a girl on his bus route. He is going to be a registered sex offender, a convicted felon on 3rd Degree Sexual Assault and on probation for 10 years. He is 25 years old. He should have gotten years in jail but he had no previous criminal record and likely the local Prosecutor didn't have great evidence, wanted to limit the risk of a lengthy and messy trial and as a guy didn't want a fellow guy too much. I hope the State's AG takes a look at this and investigates the Judge and Prosecutor for their decisions.

An adult male, white, raped a child against her will, the judge did not put him in jail and he will NOT appear in any sex offender list, as it was a 'minor incident'.

And yet we have minorities doing football numbers for far lesser crimes committed for the sake of putting food on the table.

Here is a link for the local paper: https://watertowndailytimes.com/news04/ ... e-20190426

He was charged with second-degree rape, first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and endangering the welfare of a child. The defendant plea guilty to a lesser charge of third-degree rape.

Was it some kind of statutory rape situation ?

Or just the pitfalls of never wanting to go to trial combined with "he said, she said".

Almost certain the evidence they had was circumstantial and likely had no direct evidence (ie victim may have been terrified and not gone to have a rape kit performed before it was too late). Given the lack of evidence the prosecutor would have had to put the victim on the stand to testify to the rape happening which with a young minor very few prosecutors will have the stomach to do.

Tragic.

Considering that the victim was 14, the relatively minor initial charges and the prosecutor's willingness to accept a plea to a lesser charge, I'm strongly inclined to think so.

And clearly a judge who has no qualms with this type of conduct.
We've all seen judges toss 'pleas they don't like' and render their own verdicts.

Since we're not privy to the specific details of the case nor are any of us personally acquainted with the people involved, we will probably never know.

As a white guy, which is an irrelevant fact, he should have been put against a wall and shot before the summer solstice occurred.
