Irish Court lets a man Convicted of Sexually Abusing his Daughter go Free Pending Appeal
This winner has admitted the abuse and has been sentenced to three years in prison. However, he feels that the sentence is too harsh so he is appealing. The judge has allowed him to go free on bail during the appeal.
Apparently, the mitigating factor is his health problems.
Uh…who gives a flying fuck about his health problems? The guy sexually abused his daughter for ten years! He doesn’t deserve compassion because he has health problems. He deserves to be miserable.
Nobody should feel sorry for this guy. Nobody should be considering “balancing factors” in his sentence. They should just lock him up and throw away the key. He gave up the right to fight for quality of life issues when he decided that he needed to ruin the life of his daughter.
Except, apparently, he didn’t. What the fuck is wrong with people?
