Sentencing of Sex Offenders Varies Greatly

Posted by Sandra On November - 14 - 2010

Judge Carl Brown and other judges with the Richmond County Superior Court consider many factors in deciding sentences.   Jackie Ricciardi/Staff

The Chronicle looked at the sentences handed down in categories that give the judge discretion on punishment, while at the same time selecting cases that have the greatest effect on the average person. These include: aggravated assault, burglary, child molestation, cruelty to children, possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and theft by taking. Mandatory minimum sentences for crimes such as murder and armed robbery, which take the discretion out of a judge’s hands, were not included. Aggravated assault aptly fits the description of a crime that has a great impact on a person. It is often a murder attempt that doesn’t result in death.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
