After scant jail time for violently raping a 13-year old, the convicted predator was arrested for sexual assault just a few months later.

It’s pretty clear that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is soft on child predators. We saw that when Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) was questioning her on her consistently lenient sentencing for people caught with child pornography.

Sen. Josh Hawley Grills Biden’s SCOTUS Nominee On Light Sentencing In Child Porn Cases

One case highlighted by Hawley on Twitter is United States v. Hawkins where the offender, Wesley Hawkins, was given 3 months in prison by Judge Jackson despite the sentencing guidelines calling for 8 to 10 years.

Hawkins was 18 when he posted videos of boys as young as 8 years old being sexually abused on YouTube and shared them with an undercover detective. When giving Hawkins his light sentence, she told him that the 3-month sentence was enough to make him “appreciate the consequences of your actions … but not so long that you will be subjected to harm in prison or introduced to incorrigible influences such that you are lost to society forever.”

She also said that Hawkins was “fascinated by sexual images involving what were essentially your peers.”

“Peers” she says. In what twisted world are 8-year olds and 18-year olds “peers”?

WaPo reports what happened after Hawkins was released.

A person familiar with the Hawkins case read to The Post the probation office request that led to Jackson’s order. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity, because they were not authorized to publicly discuss it.

The probation office petition did not allege that Hawkins committed any new sexual offense or violation of conditions. However, it stated that “despite being in treatment for more than five years,” Hawkins “continues to seek out sexually arousing, non-pornographic material and images of males 13 to 16-years-old.”

But it seems that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The woman that Biden has selected to sit on the highest court in the United States has been lax on child rapists, not just the people getting off on the images of child rape.

The New York Post obtained records of a particularly awful case that came before Judge Jackson in a tranche of court filings and transcripts sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday days before the vote to confirm her to the Supreme Court.

Back in 2010, the DC Superior Court sentenced Leo Weekes to 16 months in jail and 4 years of supervised probation for violently raping his 13-year old niece four years earlier. He was also required to register as a sex offender for the next 10 years, but he ignored the order.

Weekes lied about where he was living saying that his residence was in DC when he was living with his wife in Temple Hills, Maryland.

In February 2014, he was brought before the DC federal court for sentencing after pleading guilty for failing to register as a sex offender. Because of his known history of fraud, dishonesty, and failing to obey court orders, prosecutors were seeking a two-year sentence — which is still on the low end of the federal sentencing guidelines.

The prosecutor, Ari Redbord, then underscored to Judge Jackson how serious the case against Weekes was despite only being convicted of simple assault and three misdemeanor counts.

“This is not a butt grab, a misdemeanor kind of case … this is not consensual sex between a 20-year-old and a 16-year-old,” the prosecutor told Jackson. “This is an individual who, at trial, was convicted of essentially violently raping a 13-year-old child.”

Jackson, however, appeared unmoved, saying there was “no evidence” Weekes had been intentionally ducking probation officers, though she conceded he had “gotten a number of breaks, perhaps undeservedly so” in the earlier assault case.

“I do believe that criminal history is having a disproportionate impact on the sentence that the guidelines prescribe in this particular case in light of what you actually did here,” said Jackson before sentencing Weekes to 12 months, with credit for time served, according to the transcript.

Just 5 months after his release, Weekes was arrested again for attempting to rape his sister-in-law. From the report, it’s unclear the age of his second victim.

The NY Post says that Weekes allegedly plied his sister-in-law with alcohol while she was babysitting and started touching her. He then tried three times to pull down her leggings.

On the third occasion, the report alleges, Weekes “was able to digitally penetrate her vagina with his fingers and then tried to perform oral sex on her.” In response, the sister-in-law punched Weekes in the head, stopping the alleged attack.

“She noticed that the defendant had his penis exposed and was trying to insert it,” the report continues, “but was unable to get close.”

Weekes was initially arrested and charged with first-degree sexual abuse with aggravating circumstances. However, that charge was dropped after his sister-in-law opted not to cooperate with police or testify before a grand jury.

“I no longer want to pursue this matter,” the victim wrote in a letter lodged in court filings. “I want to be left alone. I don’t remember any thing [sic].”

Prosecutors said Weekes had paid her $2,500 to make the matter go away.

In March 2016, Weekes plead guilty to obstruction of justice and failing to register as a sex offender and was facing concurrent sentences of 5 years and 6 months, respectively.

But, lucky for Weekes, he appeared before Judge Jackson again in February 2017 for sentencing on his many probation violations.

Prosecutor Ari Redbord took the opportunity to remind Judge Jackson of the slap on the wrist she gave Weekes in 2014.

“The Court imposed a 12-month sentence, I think really giving the defendant every benefit of the doubt and every opportunity to complete a period of treatment, supervision, and really kind of have an opportunity to turn his life around,” he said, according to a transcript. ” … And he failed at every turn to take advantage of that opportunity.”

Earlier in the hearing, Redbord referred to Weekes as “the worst defendant that I have ever seen on supervision” and asked for two years to be tacked on to the end of his DC sentence.

Even then, Jackson did not agree, imposing her 24-month sentence to partially overlap with his punishment in connection with the assault on his sister-in-law.

This is the kind of person that Ketanji Brown Jackson is concerned about — the convicted child rapist and not the victims of the crime.

We are about to get a Supreme Court Justice that has more compassion for these sick, twisted perverts that want to hurt children for their own sexual gratification than the victims that are abused and had their lives destroyed by these predators.

With the overtly sexualized teaching along with the sexualized books in school libraries, a push to reframe pedophiles as a legitimate sexual orientation, kids programming embracing the gender-bending indoctrination, and judges like Jackson soft on child predators, it really looks like there is a concerted effort to groom children for sex.

It’s a war for your kids and you need to be armed.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
