Michigan parents furious 15-year-old rapist coming back to school after just 45 days in detention

Published

on

Parents at one Michigan school are furious that a teenage sex “predator” could be returning to classes after spending about six weeks in detention.

The 15-year-old was sentenced to 45 days in juvenile detention last month after pleading guilty to sexual assault, and he could return to Brighton High School as early as next week, reported WXYZ-TV.

The teenager was originally charged with 31 felonies but pleaded guilty to six counts as part of an agreement with prosecutors that called for 15 months in a sexual offender rehabilitation facility.

The judge decided to shorten that sentence and place the boy in a juvenile facility, and parents remain outraged.

“He was charged with 31 felonies, he pleaded to six, there’s no way in 45 days he’s cured or better,” said one victim’s mother.

Victims as young as 12 years old said the teen manipulated them through social media, forced himself into their homes and physically overpowered them.

“He did this to all the girls,” said the parent of one victim. “He would infiltrate their social media, get all their friends and go to work. He’s a predator. Without a doubt, he is a predator.”

The mother of another girl said the teen raped her daughter at least twice.

“He basically overtook her with his size and strength, then apologized profusely and begged to come to see her in person to apologize because he was so sorry for what he had done to her – and then he raped her again,” one mother said.

Parents have asked the school board to keep the teen out of the school building so his victims don’t have to face him.

“I would like you to consider and do the right thing to protect the rest of the community, he can go to school online,” said one victim’s father.

School officials declined to comment on the student’s return, and the teen is scheduled to return to court Dec. 4 for a review of his case.

GOP appointees considered disloyal to Trump won’t be spared as president’s new hatchet-man begins purge: report

Published

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
