The problem w/ sexual crimes is that often the punishment does not equal the crime.

A family member of mine was charged , arrested, and convicted of a sexual crime. The punishment was three years in prison, I felt one year would have accomplished the same thing. OK fine.

At the end of three years, after being released on parole this family member was arrested for a "parole" violation. Has anyone ever seen the list of things one is NOT to do while on probation? It is endless. But, OK fine.

Now this family member is in prison again, which is costing the state money, for basically an administrative rule. AND WILL STILL NEED TO BE REHABILITATED.

Perps should have to face consequences, but it should fit the crime.

Oh, and the parole violation was "an unregistered email address".

"We, the people, the justice system" put someone in prison for three more years because they had an email address...

And being in prison for six years has turned my family member into a "better" criminal.

AND WILL STILL NEED TO BE REHABILITATED.

I don't know that he needed to go back to prison, but having an unregistered email account for a sex offender is a big deal. It would allow him/her to continue searching for and violating people online in chat rooms. That most certainly wouldn't be helping to rehabilitate them (ever seen "to catch a predator" on Dateline?). And what punishment would you suggest fits the crime? Put them in a jail cell and have their cell mate do to them what they did to someone else?! Although that would be great (and might curb sex offenses better than just jail) I don't think the State DOC would allow that.

These crimes are what prisons are build for. Rape ,robbery, murder and that's the best way to protect the public. There are victims to these crimes. Its not a big deal until its your kids they molest and scar for life. The prisons are full from drug crimes change those laws for rehibaliton first. You get more time for a felony dui then rape really.

Yes probation is hard that just means there doing there job.The real names is rapist or child molester. Even if its a under age person they know its a crime called rape give them the book and that's a guarantee they wont be raping women and kids.
