Judge Criticized for Handing Down Preposterously Light Rape Sentence [VIDEO]

A Texas judge has come under fire for issuing a rape sentence most consider to be light. Sir Young was sentenced to just 45 days in jail and five years of probation, after the judge implied that the 14-year-victim was promiscuous.

Judge Jeanine Howard said her ruling was based partially on the fact that medical records indicated the girl had given birth, and has had three sexual partners.

Critics of the decision not only fear it will deter victims from coming forward in the future, but are admonishing the judge’s choice to sentence Young to 250 hours of community service at a rape crisis center.

The judge has since recused herself from the case.
