Impeach Judge for Lax Incest, Rape Sentence

judgerule_succo

Target: Jon Tester and Steve Daines, U.S. Senators from Montana

Goal: Impeach Judge John McKean for sentencing convicted child rapist to only 43 days in jail.

A 40-year-old man who plead guilty to raping his daughter will only serve 43 days in jail. The judge who oversaw the case is retiring soon, and many believe he should not collect retirement funds from the state of Montana due to his deplorable sentencing. This crime is punishable with up to 100 years in prison, yet the criminal was only sentenced to spend 60 days in jail with a credit of 17 days already served. Since this ruling, the community has joined voices to call for the impeachment of Judge John McKean.

The man, whose name is being withheld in order to protect the victim, was originally indicted on three counts of incest and rape but was offered a plea bargain which he took in order to get the charges reduced to just one. So even though he allegedly raped his daughter multiple times, he is only legally guilty of doing it once. Prosecutors originally recommended 25 years in prison, which is the mandatory minimum sentence, but Judge McKean used a loophole to get him off with less time.

The main reason for the lax sentencing was that the defendant went under a psychosexual evaluation that ruled he could be watched and safely treated in the community. The judge also noted statements from the victim’s mother and grandmother, which asked that he not be put in jail because of what it would do to him psychologically. It seems that they did not consider what incestual rape might have done to the victim, who did not appear in court or have anyone speak on her behalf. Reportedly, the mother is the one who caught him raping her, yet still she wants him around her daughter and other children.

In order to legally impeach someone, two-thirds of state legislators must vote in favor, otherwise, it can be recommended to the state Supreme Court. Judge McKean obviously did not serve the victim justice, as she still has to live with her rapist. A man abusing his daughter in this way is more than just a mistake—it is the sign of a dangerous man. He should be in prison serving hard time for one of the most deplorable acts known to mankind. Demand that Judge McKean be impeached for failing to uphold his duty to justice and for letting this rapist off easy.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senators Tester and Daines,

Judge John McKean recently ruled over a case in which a man plead guilty to raping his 12-year-old daughter, yet he only sentenced the criminal to spend 60 days in jail with a credit of 17 days already served. The mandatory minimum sentence for such a crime is 25 years, yet this judge let him off with less than three months. The man who raped his daughter will still be allowed to live with her and interact with her community as long as he complies with his parole.

Incest is a universal crime that just about every culture severely punishes, and your community is outraged that Montana has not upheld the law. They are calling for this judge to be impeached for failing to attain justice for the victim and keep the community safe. Please do all in your power to impeach Judge McKean immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
