Slashes 15 years from jail sentence saying ‘he didn’t mean to harm’ the young child
A California judge has caused outrage after slashing 15 years off the jail sentence of a pedophile convicted of raping a 3-year-old child.
Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly cut the child rapist’s prison term down to ten years from 25 years claiming that “he didn’t mean to harm” the toddler girl that he raped.
He also backed the claim from rapist Kevin Rojano that the young child initiated the sodomy, who said in his own defense that she “asked me to do it.”
Rojano was convicted on December 3 of sodomizing a child younger than 10 and lascivious acts with a minor, and he was initially sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Judge Kelly then trimmed a massive 15 years off Rojano’s sentence, saying it would be “cruel and unusual punishment” to impose the maximum prison term because the 20-year-old lacked “callous disregard for (the victim’s) well-being.”
