Violence against women is growing and so is the number of women reporting that they have been sexually assaulted or raped. After the judge in the Stanford case issued a paltry less than two months in jail there was an outcry from American citizens who wanted justice and harsh punishment for his heinous behaviorse. This judge seems to have a sentencing conscience based on socioe-cconomics. He should be removed from the bench and not allowed to serve on any cases involving violence against women.
Judges should get the position on judiciary ability, not for playing to the lowest common denominator. The last thing the world needs is a judge who gave a rapist a six month slap on the wrist presiding over a sexual assault case. The judges that preside over sexual assault cases should value the lives of the victims.
The judge in the former Stanford student sexual assault care should be removed from future cases that involve sexual assault. In order for justice to be served, a judge must demonstrate that he can fairly run a courtroom; ensuring that justice will be administered properly; guaranteeing a fair trial. Unfortunately, this judge failed to demonstrate that he could ensure fair treatment and justice. Therefore, yes, the judge should be removed in future sexual assault cases.
The judge in the infamous Stanford student sexual assault case should be removed from other sexual assault cases. His ruling was so lenient and the outcry so great, that he has lost all credibility in these types of cases. All of his rulings will be heavily scrutinized, and it will not be a fair trial.
