Tough on crime

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2008 at 5:34 AM

What must the law-and-order crowd in Benton County think of this apparent plea bargain accepted by Circuit Judge Tom Keith? A 21-year-old thug with a record that includes a previous rape of a minor and a robbery and assault gets PROBATION for sexually assaulting yet another minor (15 years old)?

More details needed than this story supplies. But it sounds outrageous. Ms. Prosecutor?

Perhaps this reflects Benton County's openness to child brides?
