As a victim of rape I'm sick to death of seeing rapists 'getting out of' going to jail. Either because they are 'family men(married)' have kids or know someone in authority. It's ridiculous.There was one specific case here in Ireland last year when a man broke into a woman's home in the early hours,assaulted and raped her and because he knew the judge he was given 4 years probation. Disgrace. After weeks of the country going crazy over this 'punishment' they eventually had to sentence him. He was sentenced to two years in prison?? What is your opinion.. Why are there so many rapists free, walking the streets? What do you think is the appropriate punishment for rape?
