A Texas judge is under fire for sentencing an admitted rapist to just 45 days in jail and five years probation after he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old classmate.
The controversial ruling came to light after Judge Jeanine Howard told The Dallas Morning News the victim in the case "wasn't the victim she claimed to be" and,Â after reviewing the girl's medical records, implied she was promiscuous.
Howard, who has recused herself from the case, also said 20-year-old Sir Young "is not your typical sex offender," after he confessed to raping the girl when he was an 18-year-old high school student.
What is more outrageous - the sentence or the judge's statements?
