The law in New York State declares that if you are an adult human being and you sexually abuse a nine year old who lives down the street, that this is a class B felony. Felonies are graded by letter with A being the highest. Class B, I think, is a mandatory 15 year sentence. If this same adult human being were to sexually abuse a nine year old who was directly related to said adult, like their kids for example, this is not a class B felony. No it’s not A, C, or D. It’s a class E felony. With class E, the perpetrator is eligible for immediate probation. So the perpetrator gets to go home immediately to the victim.
UPDATE: This used to be the case. The loophole was closed thanx to the works of many many people. Thanx to Riley for the link (see comments).
Wonder why the good senator from NY never picked up on that during her time in office???
Wonder why none of the candidates are addressing child protection laws at all??
