In March of 2015 in Oakland County, Michigan, Kathryn Ronk was sentenced to 6-15 years in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old male student. Initially charged with 5-counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, like Abigail Simon, with a maximum sentence of 25-years to life in prison and a mandatory minimum of 8-25 years, she plead guilty to 2 counts of third-degree CSC and was thus sentenced to “only” 6-15 years in prison in a country in which, during the 1990s, the average time-served for murder was less than 6-years and the average time-served for all violent felonies was approximately 4-years. And, of course, all the post/extra incarceration punishments, including registration for life or at least 20-30 years as a uniquely vile and execrable criminal, theoretically more dangerous and likely to commit violent and mala in se crimes than myriads of brutes and savages who’ve committed dozens and scores of felonies but have never been convicted of a sexual offense albeit most of them have raped or gang-raped men in jails and prisons and/or women (including underage adolescent girls) in the free world.
But, according to Michigan Sex Crime Attorneys, she’s a “very lucky lady indeed:” Because Ronk had sex with her “victim” in two counties, Oakland and Mccomb, she was also charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Mccomb County but plead guilty to a single count of third-degree CSC and was sentenced to “only” 6-15 years in prison but, how “very lucky,” the sentences will be served concurrently.
This is a great turn of events for Ronk who, at age 30, may spend as little as six years behind bars. What this means is that she, unlike many other teachers convicted of student-related CSC crimes, has a chance at getting out of prison with enough time to have a chance at life again.

Yes, what luck! “As little as 6 years behind bars”! By this reasoning, Abigail Simon is also “very lucky,” since she has a chance of serving “only” 8-years in prison and thus “having a chance at life again.”! To repeat: in a sane and just and rational country, neither woman would have even been charged with a crime but simply punished, non-criminally, by dismissal and revocation of their licenses and expulsion from the profession. Or, at worst, charged with a misdemeanor and, if convicted, sentenced to 3-6 months of probation and 50-100 hours of community service. And perhaps also fined modestly. Neither should be enslaved for a day in jail much less 6 or 8 years in prison, if “lucky,” and possibly much longer!
In Michigan, apparently, even most lawyers who defend those accused of sex-crimes are CSA victimologists, dogmatic “true believers,” who believe the laws are sane and just and rational, and that sentences of 6-15 years or 8-25 years in prison are not at all excessive and draconian for first-offenders convicted of nonviolent and victimless and malum prohibita crimes that are legal acts in dozens of other nations, including European countries, women who’ve never committed a violent or other malum in se crime in their lives and never will and are not a “threat to society” or to anyone nor even a danger to “re-offend” by having sex with another young man under statutory age.
