SIDNEY, Neb. — A judge said a 5-foot-1 man convicted of sexually assaulting a child was too small to survive in prison, and gave him 10 years of probation instead.
His crimes deserved a long sentence, said, but she worried that , 50, would be especially imperiled by prison dangers.

Seems odd considering the fact that the sicko didn't think the child he raped was too short for that.
Too cute to go to prison.
Too short to go to prison.
What happened to the good old days when people were just too rich to go to prison?
If I were the parent, I'd like that verdict. It would put him out where I could get to him.
Hello. This was supposed to be excerpted and it actually posted the whole thing. Sorry. I think this is my first posting ever. I did do the auto-excerpt.
The judge needs to share a cell with the perp.
If I were a child-molesting dwarf, I'd be thrilled with this ruling.
Even hardened criminal convicts are disgusted by child molesters.
I say move him into her house, or at least, next door.
The only downside being that you'd have to get that pesky ankle bracelet off if you wanted to make sure he truly paid for his crime.
Hmm. I'm 5'-9", wonder what crime I can get away with?
Wait four months.
You don't have to get the bracelet off - just the ankle.
I would not feel sorry one bit if this sicko was a target. How many either get out and do it again and again? Too many to count so the lives and souls that lost because of these monsters are also too many to count. I long for the days when the punishment for these crimes carried the death penalty.
If someone rapes one of my daughters (I have two) I will be BEGGING the judge to give that man probation, literally BEGGING him.
I'd leave it behind. With the rest of his foot.
If it had been my kid I doubt very much that I could wait that long.
My brother rides with the Patriot Guard, I bet we could take it off and send it a long way down the road to the next funeral.
I like the way you both think.
Only 4 months with the ankle bracelet? It's sh*t like this that has always made me say, "if this ever happens to any of my girls, forget the police I'll take care of them myself." That little &*$%@ would wish he were dead!
Did she have him drop trou in the courtroom and determine that he'd surely be mistaken for a female in the shower?
People like him always repeat and now it's just a matter of time before that judge will very much regret her decision.
Dateline had a show last night (I think it was a repeat) of adults meeting young girls in chat rooms and setting up meetings. The guys came into the 14-year-olds home, late at night, while her parents were away. They were met by a TV camera crew (Cops were outside).
A number of the guys were convicted sex offenders. They hadn't learned their lesson.
Can you imagine the embarassment (note: I'm not being sympathetic) of being filmed on TV, while trying to rendez-vous with a 14-year old? And then arrested? That would really ruin your day, huh? Well ... read on:
One guy was caught that night -- and THE NEXT DAY he set up a rendez-vous with a 14-year-old at a local McDonald's. He was met with a camera crew (again).
These people CANNOT stop themselves. I would like a Constitutional Amendment saying that sex offenders cannot be fined or imprisoned: just kill 'em.
He should have sentenced to 10 years of babysitting the judge's kids.
This country is way too short of Dirty Harry types and any of the Death Wish movies type action.
Something tells me this judge won't regret a thing. If you notice the pattern of judge's that do this, they always defend themselves with some stupid rationalization or they are so ultra-liberal that they think people like us protesting something like this are out of our minds. She won't regret it and the fact is, he has already "killed" this child. For the rest of the childs life. If someone did this to either of my kids (son or daughter), they would not live long. I would go Ellie Nessler on them.
Sounds good to me. There is no rehab for these people. Sad day when the death penalty was reduced to murder only, and only certain kinds/levels of murder. A childs mind and soul are murdered here. And the guy that kept going back (McDonald's the next day); I wonder why the hell he is even walking around. I want to know why he isn't in jail awaiting trial. He IS a serial sex offender.
That would be the perfect senctence. I think I will send that idea to her in an e-mail.
How these people think they're immune is beyond me.
Huh? What exactly does that mean? Is there something left out of this story? Why no info about the details of the case?
My guess: Childless as well.
And I truly hope the parents of his next victim will be allowed to disembowel you slowly for your cowardice!
They are immune because the people who do this cross all socioeconomical categories.... As long as powerful money brokers and politicians are doing it (which they are) as well as trailer trash, you will not see any of them treated hard by the system.
Our "Justice" system is only tough on petty criminals... Hell even the speaker of the House is arguing that House Members should be above the law just this past week.
So does this means that in Nebraska dwarves can now commit crimes at will?
Hey, I would have taken your word for it -- you didn't have to attach a copy of the picture he sent....
I just saw in on Fox News. I would probably have to search later for more info.
If the places are so terrifying that a short, but fully grown adult male, simply cannot survive, shouldn't we be doing something to reform the prison system as a whole?
the conditions of the probation are actually a win-win for everyone-- the judge said "I want control of you until you integrate change in your life" (my emphasis). Prison as punishment accomplishes nothing except revenge, whereas forcing change actually serves everyone well.
(To be fair, even some of the DUmmies are appalled by this idiot judge.)
She received her law degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1976 where she was a member of the Law Review and received the Order of the Coif.
She has served in a variety of positions including Country Attorney and County Judge prior to her appointment as District Court Judge in 1999 and was president of the Nebraska County Judges Association in 1996.
Her professional involvement has included the Nebraska Commission for the Protection of Children, the Supreme Court Gender Fairness Task Force, the Rural Resources Task Force, the NSBA Indigent Defense Task Force and the CSA/NSBA Special Committee to Review Nebraska Juvenile Codes.
As an active wife and mother she also donates much of her time to community service.
Her professional involvement has included the Nebraska Commission for the Protection of Children,
As President Reagan once said: "The nine most dangerous words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
We think much alike, you and I.
"Revenge is a dish best served cold."
There needs to be a Law that any rule made by a judge that results in other innocents being made victims by a maggot that judge could have put away. That judge then needs to pay a criminal price in the form of fines AND jail time.
I'm no advocate of using sexual assault in prison as a means of controlling prisoners, and think the fact our prisons are unsafe (and not simply unpleasant or harsh with tasteless food and hard labor) is a blot on our society.
My first choice would be to execute child rapists, second choice to castrate them and brand them where the brand couldn't be hidden, third choice is put them in the prison general population.
As long as it applies equally to both sexes. Child predators any more are not gender specific. The other thing is, that we are not located on the liberal coasts. I'd be willing to wager, that a predator that stumbled and hit his head or that simply disappeared would not be investigated here in the heartland, as long as there werent any liberal witnesses to whatever might befall them.
"Seen Dick?" "Nope, I heard he left town."
One state agrees with you !
Death Penalty For Repeat Sex Offenders Passes Oklahoma Senate
"Her professional involvement has included the Nebraska Commission for the Protection of Children"
NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell me this is a joke.
Coming soon, I bet. People are fed up.
Certainly hope so.
