    Default Judge gives 2 months to child rapists because he doesn't believe in jail

    http://www.wcax.com/Global/story.asp?S=4319605&nav=4QcT



    There was outrage Wednesday when a Vermont judge handed out a 60-day jail sentence to a man who raped a little girl many,many times over a four-year span starting when she was seven. The judge said he no longer believes in punishment and is more concerned about rehabilitation. Prosecutors argued that confessed child-rapist Mark Hulett, 34, of Williston deserved at least eight years behind bars for repeatedly raping a littler girl countless times starting when she was seven.

    But Judge Edward Cashman disagreed explaining that he no longer believes that punishment works. "The one message I want to get through is that anger doesn't solve anything. It just corrodes your soul," said Judge Edward Cashman speaking to a packed Burlington courtroom. Most of the on-lookers were related to a young girl who was repeatedly raped by Mark Hulett who was in court to be sentenced.

    The sex abuse started when the girl was seven and ended when she was ten. Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of eight to twenty years in prison, in part, as punishment. "Punishment is a valid purpose," Chittenden Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Andreson argued to Judge Edward Cashman. "The state recognizes that the court may not agree or subscribe to that method of sentencing but the state does. The state thinks that it is a very important factor for the court to consider," Andreson added.

    But Judge Cashman explained that he is more concerned that Hulett receive sex offender treatment as rehabilitation. But under Department of Corrections classification, Hulett is considered a low-risk for re-offense so he does not qualify for in-prison treatment.So the judge sentenced him to just 60 days in prison and then Hulett must complete sex treatment when he gets out or face a possible life sentence.

    Judge Cashman also also revealed that he once handed down stiff sentences when he first got on the bench 25 years ago, but he no longer believes in punishment. "I discovered it accomplishes nothing of value;it doesn't make anything better;it costs us a lot of money; we create a lot of expectation, and we feed on anger,"Cashman explained to the people in the court.

    The sentence outraged the victim's family who asked not to be identified. "I don't like it," the victim's mother,in tears, told Channel 3. "He should pay for what he did to my baby and stop it here. She's not even home with me and he can be home for all this time, and do what he did in my house," she added.

    Hulett -- who had been out on bail-- was taken away to start his sentence immediately.
    What ind of loophole in the justce system allows this to happen? I do beleive that some criminals need rehab instead of jail, but child molestors will rarley stop going after children. This judge is a dumb-ass for letting this guy get an easy way out.

    You can't rehabilitate pedophiles. All you can do is chemically castrate them. Sad truth.

    This judge should be tossed from the bench.

    It's no surprise that this happened in the state that gave us Howard Dean, Bernie Sanders, Pat Leahy and Jim Jeffords. Judge Cashman must be what Democrats think of when they talk about the judicial mainstream and Americans ought to know that as judicial confirmation battles continue.

    I'm sorry but this isn't a political issue and has nothing to do with Howard Dean, Jim Jeffords, the Democratic Party or anything else you bring up. And by the way, Jim Jeffords was one of yours until he realized that the repug party is rife with nutjobs and crooks.

    These sickos that repeatedly rape little girls are beyond rehabilitation. And judges that knowingly release these sickos to hurt others are beyond redemption. And if he doesn't believe in prison from a punishment standpoint, can he not see the benefits of keeping a pedophile off the streets awaying from other young children????? God forbid this confessed sicko he put on the streets rapes his children.
