From a previous thread that was on here regarding a "man", 34yr old Mark Hulett, who molested a young child for many years who Judge Edward J. Cashman in Burlington, Vermont, setenced to 60 days in prison, increased the sentence to 3 to 10 years.
In my opionion, that is still a light sentence. The horror this monster put this young child thru for so many years should deserve a LIFE sentence. The outrage at the initial sentence apparently had an affect.
I also think this "judge" should be allowed to have this person babysit his kid after he has had his "treatment". How would he feel about that?? Obviously he is too removed from the realities of this horrible crime. I do not believe that child molesters can be rehabiliated, personally.
The judge's excuse to the disgusting sentencing was that this monster had been ruled ineligible for treatment until he got out of prison. Cashman said the lighter sentence had been the only way to make sure Hulett got prompt treatment. State officials agreed to provide sex-offender treatment to him while in prison.
I cannot imagine the misery the victim of the family has gone through after this slap in the face.
