“Does the Punishment Fit the Crime? ” So askes www. kolotv.com. in a brief article:
An Elko County woman convicted of forcing a 13-year-old boy to touch her breasts was sentenced to life in prison. Michelle Lyn Taylor, 34, was convicted of lewdenss with a minor under 14 in November. Taylor’s attorney, public defender Alina Kilpatrick says it is the harshest sentence ever dealt to a female sex offender in Nevada. Kilpatrick called the sentence unconstitutional. “This is cruel and unusual punishment,” Kilpatrick said. “She put his hand on her boob while she was wearing a bra, now she’s getting life.”
Elko County District Attorney Gary Woodbury said Taylor was “convicted of precisely what she did,” and under the state sentencing guidelines, life in prison was mandatory. Woodbury says Taylor did not want to negotiate a plea deal because she did not wanto to have to register as a sex offender. Woodbury says Taylor felt her life would be over if she had to register (as a sex offender) so it wouldn’t matter what she was she was convicted of. Woodbury says while it might be some adolescent male’s fantasy to have sex with a woman, in this case it was a traumatic event. The child has needed and continues to receive therapy.
She was arrested, prosecuted, and convicted at trial in 2010. Apparently, she was so drunk that she didn’t even recall what occurred exactly. And, apparently, she was found guilty of this heinous crime solely on the “he said/she said uncorroborated testimony of a 13-year-old male. There with no physical evidence, obviously, or any neutral witnesses.
And, according to some accounts, the woman wanted to have sex with the young man. In the fantasy world inhabited by CSA victimologists, most of whom are women and nearly all of whom are feminists and left-liberals, MRAs, the misogynist lunatics of the soo-disant “men’s rights movement,” and all those they brainwashed, biological men under age 16 or 16 (and even “adults” of 18 if the woman is a teacher) are too innocent and paralyzed by fear to say “no” and reject the advances of a female who is an adult and at least 4-5 years older -albeit they are horrified and repulsed by the prospect of having sex with them even if they’re as ravishing as Debra Lafave or as lovely as Mary Letourneau. In this situation, obviously, a 13-year-old male was fully capable of saying “no” and rejecting her importunaties, probably because she was fat, unattractive, and sloppy drunk.
And any “trauma” he suffered was a corollary of Nevada’s draconian sex-crime laws, the criminal justice system, the trial, and the media, not touching a woman’s breast in private, And how can a woman “force” a young man to touch her breast “against his will” if he’s bigger and stronger than her?
It would be interesting and revealing to know the average time-served in Nevada for males convicted of violent crimes: assaults, robbery, violent/forcible rape, and murder. And over 90% of the males who commit such felonies are recidivists, most of whom should have been in prison rather than free to commit violent felonies. And what is the average time-served in jail or prison for adult men who have liaisons with underage teenagers?
And are men guilty of a felony with a mandatory sentence of life in prison for forcing adolescent girls under age 14 to touch their chests while clothed? Men don’t have breasts, of course, but they have nipples. And women are guilty of felonies and described as “rapists” for engaging in coitus with biological men under statutory age even though they don’t have penises to penetrate and impregnate their “victims.”
