This is unbelievable. Don’t worry, vengeance is of the Lord.
A California judge has reduced a child rapist’s mandatory 25-year sentence down to only 10 – saying anything longer would be ‘cruel and unusual punishment’.
Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly told an Orange County jury that 20-year-old Kevin Jonas Rojano-Nieto ‘did not intend to harm’ the three-year-old girl he raped at his family home in June.
The judge said that he was sure that although Rojano-Nieto sodomized the girl and covered her mouth so she couldn’t scream out, ‘there was no violence or callous disregard for the victim’s well-being’.
Judge Kelly also said Rojano-Nieto, ‘inexplicably became sexually aroused but did not appear to consciously intend to harm the victim.’
Prosecutor have said they will appeal the controversial decision and will be pushing for the minimum sentence of 25-years to life to be reinstated.
Rojano-Nieto was found guilty on December 3 of raping the girl who wandered into a garage where he was playing video games.
