This fucking sucks

Via Harry Hutton, I find this frankly extraordinary story of a 17 year old boy sent down for 10 years because some 15 year old lass sucked his wee teenage prick. Naturally, this was in the US.

Andrew Sullivan comments on the reason why this happened (a mandatory sentence, presumably thought up by a bunch of fucking piss-head wankers with all of the brains of an earthworm).
The presiding judge argued he had to lock the boy up for a decade without the prospect of parole:
"...while I am very sympathetic to Wilson's argument regarding the injustice of sentencing this promising young man with good grades and no criminal history to ten years in prison without parole and a lifetime registration as a sexual offender because he engaged in consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old victim only two years his junior, this Court is bound by the Legislature's determination that young persons in Wilson's situation are not entitled to the misdemeanor treatment now accorded to identical behavior..."

A decade for a consensual "act of oral sodomy"? I suppose the lad's lucky he isn't being castrated.

What the fuck is up with this shit? I mean, seriously? This is what happens when you introduce mandatory sentencing over a judge's discretion: an absolute travesty of justice.

I mean, WHAT THE FUCK?!

Still, I'm sure that that fucking red-headed devil, Rebekkah cunting Wade (no, I can't be arsed to spell her name properly) is happy; this would suit her right down to the ground, the evil old cunt that she is.

It was Alex Massie who posted that at The Daily Dish - Sullivan is on his wee Christmas hols.

That is ridiculous. It was completely consensual, there is no prospect of any harm to either of them. And now the poor lad is going to jail where there is some serious harm going to happen to him. An absolute travesty of justice, but what you get when judges are not allowed to judge and the sentence is dictated by some know nothing politician.
