99 Year Sentence for Child Abuse →
[More:]I know we tend to keep things fairly light here, but I'm really curious to know what you Bunnies think.
It looks as if the prosecutors were looking for a 45 year sentence (which would have been an amazingly long sentence as far as I can tell), but the judge went further and gave the defendant 99 years. I'm sure there will be appeals filed.
Do you think it's too long or too short or just right? Does being a child abuse victim yourself influence your thoughts on this? (No need to "out" yourself if you don't wish to, of course.)
Having been abused myself (although not nearly to this extent), I can't really decide. In one way, no punishment can be enough, yet is 99 years appropriate?
