Get ready to be enraged: York nudist Jeannie Jonas will have spent more time in jail than rapist Brock Turner when he is released on September 2
Mr. Turner, for those unfamiliar with Twitter, MySpace, Facebook and Instagram, was sentenced to jail on June 2 after a March 25 conviction on three rape charges after he raped an unconscious woman in an alley at Stanford University.
Mr. Turner will be released after spending just 89 days in jail. His sentence began on Monday, June 5.
That is less than half of the 183-day jail term Mr. Turner was handed by rape enabling judge Aaron Persky, 54, who is facing a recall election on November 8 over his sentencing in this case.
By comparison, York nudist Jeannie Jonas, now 57, convicted of Mickey Mouse “indecent exposure” charges after an ultraconservative Muslim male neighbor was “offended” by her cutting her grass while legally topless, spent 90 days in jail from January to April 2015.
The extremely light sentence ignited a new bill, now on the desk of Governor Jerry Brown (D), that would prohibit judges or prosecutors from seeking jail sentences of less than three years in cases of rape or sexual assault. That bill also eliminates probation as an option in such cases. Aiken Area Progressive has not taken a position on this bill.
Gov. Brown has vowed to anti-rape advocates that he will sign the bill.
Look at these two cases and prepare to be outraged.
