Sexual Assault Case Tossed Over Technicality
In yet another gross and blatant miscarriage of justice by our Justice system, a case involving sexual abuse of a minor was tossed out based on a flimsy technicality. Tossed out like dirty dish water. If there ever was a right time to yell B**L S**t! this is it. Totally BS if you ask me.
Let’s talk. In a nutshell, the victim who was just seven at the time of the alleged abuse, which included fondling and oral sex, is now 17. She went to the cops with a statement of the incidents when she was 14 but a request by the police to speak to the accused, her mom’s ex boyfriend, was refused. A warrant for his arrest was served but never executed until 18 months later and that my readers, is where the technicality lies.
The presiding Judge tossed the case out because it took too long. My question is, would he have felt the same way if the victim was his own daughter? So now we have a child molester and pedophile out there somewhere probably preying on some other kid as we speak, and a girl who was betrayed by the very system that was put in place to protect her and other kids like her, from this nightmare. Unfortunately, because justice was never served, her nightmare will continue. For her, it would not just disappear because time elapsed. The judge felt that the accused rights were violated. Well, seems like this judge has his sense of responsibility all confused. How about the rights of the young victim? Wanna talk about violation? The perp violated her and you, your honor, violated her further.
A sex crime against a 7-year old is disgusting and disturbing to say the least. It is reprehensible. No technicality should exist that would enable the perpetrator to get off the hook once he’s proven guilty. Granted, this guy was not proven guilty. The court never got the chance to prove his guilt or innocence.
Injustice and lack of compassion is what this is all about. I hope that the victim could find strength to make a full recovery from her abuse and subsequent misrepresentation by a toothless Justice System.
