Petition/Please help infant
Nov 14th, 2003 at 2:17pm
 
I myself am a survivor of child molestation. That is why this story bothered me so much... Cry
I came across a news report on the internet about a man named Joseph Lehman Jr. who raped his 2-mo old daughter.  This man's father is the head of the Department of Corrections for Washington state. The King county Prosecutor's office has entered in to a plea agreement with Joseph Lehman Jr.:  6 months in jail, 3 years sexual deviancy counseling and lifetime monitoring. This is terribly inadequate. That poor child cannot speak for herself. Will you please help by signing the petition to go to Judge Kessler who will be handing down the sentencing on 12/05/03? A copy is also going to the King county prosecutor's office. On the petition there is a link to their office to give your opinion about this plea agreement. Won't you please help mother and child? I have included news links so you can read for yourself about this terrrible injustice. The prosecutor says the reason for the light sentence is because he is a first time offender while Joseph Lehman Jr. has admitted to molesting a 9-year old in the state of Maine. No charges were filed there, so he will get a slap on the wrist here. I personally feel that if his family were not so politically connected he would never get a deal like this one. Conjecture? Please read the news accounts and decide for yourself.
God Bless,
Sheri E. Miller

Angry
I am incredibly angry about this case.  This man deserves to have his thingy cut off!!  I'm sorry to be so graphic (especially to the men).  How could someone do that to a little tiny baby?  I can't imagine the amount of pain the poor thing has endured.
Anyway, I did sign that petition and I hope more people will do the same.
Thanks for the information

Hi Sheri

I was appalled but not surprised by this case.  It seems to be the norm, which stinks.  I live in Canada.  There was a recent case where a grandfather molested three children in one day and was given 9 months. The judge knew this was a light sentense, had to give it anyway. The grandfather said it was the kids' fault. Embarrassed  It's like rape cases, one word against another.  So much damage in so few seconds.

It's sickening that these monters get these light sentenses for destroying lives. Angry
