    Judge Decides Child Rapist Didn't Mean To Hurt The Toddler He Sodomized | LAist

    An Orange County judge has decided to knock 15 years off a convicted sex offender's sentence because he says the man didn't mean to hurt the three-year-old girl he sodomized.

    Kevin Jonas Rojano, 20, was found guilty on December 3 of sodomizing a child under the age of 10, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, KTLA reports. The minimum sentence for such a crime is 25 years to life in prison.

    Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly clipped 15 years off Rojano's sentence, saying that it would be cruel and unusual punishment for him to serve the whole thing because Rojano lacked a "callous disregard for (the victim's) well-being," according to the OC Register.


    With a crime so horrific, one may be wondering what could sway Kelly to truncate Rojano's sentence. Kelly said that because Rojano did not seek out the victim, he was different from other child predators for whom 25 to life would be a reasonable sentence.

    "However, in looking at the facts of Mr. Rojano's case, the manner in which this offense was committed is not typical of a predatory, violent brutal sodomy of a child case. Mr. Rojano did not seek out or stalk (the victim). He was playing video games and she wandered into the garage. He inexplicably became sexually aroused but did not appear to consciously intend to harm (the victim) when he sexually assaulted her," Kelly said.

    Kelly also said that in Rojano's actions, "there was no violence or callous disregard for (the victim's) well-being," and that Rojano regrets his crimes. Kelly also pointed to Rojano's own troubled childhood, where he too had been abused.

    Deputy District Attorney Whitney Bokosky disagrees with Kelly's decision and her office may seek an appeal. She thinks Rojano's attempt to quiet the girl by putting his hand over her mouth is an important detail, and noted that the assault continued after the mother went to the neighbor's house.

    this is so outrageous
    I bet Rojano could have said "I only raped her a little" as his defense, and that judge would have agreed with him.
    Rape is rape mofo. Whether a rapist "cares" for their victim's well being or not.

    What concerns me is that from now on, other child rapists can use this as a precedent.

    Here's the thing, we have minimum sentencing for a reason: If you did the crime, that's the bare minimum you should do. Period. A lack of stuff like using violence, stalking your victim, all the stuff the judge picked out...that's called the minimum. That means you get the minimum. Add in all that extra stuff and you should be ADDING years on.

    You didn't assault someone a little. You didn't stab someone a little. You didn't rape someone a little. You didn't murder them a little. You assault, stabbed, raped, or murdered them. You hit the minimum requirements for the crime, now do the minimum requirement of time. But if you're SUPER assault, SUPER shabby, SUPER rapey, or SUPER murdery....well we can always make that sentence last even longer or put you into a more restrictive prison.

    That is how this works. Not whatever bullshit this idiot is thinking. I hope Orange County voters have him kicked off the bench and that the ABA yanks his credentials.
