This kind of disturbs me... I know it is our job to arrest, not prosecute, but two stories back-to-back in the Globe yesterday worry me (see below). A pervert touches an 11-year old kid, and gets 5 years in state prison and 5 more of probation. Good! However, the next article reported on a man who killed a 4-year old boy and injured 3 others while OUI. He gets 2.5 years in state prison and 2.5 more at the HOC. What gives?! Sexual assualts are horrible, but this moron KILLED a young child because he was sh*tfaced!!! Sorry, it is late and I needed to let off some steam I guess. This state can be frustrating sometimes. :evil: :?

"A Charlestown youth hockey coach, convicted last month of sexual assault, was sentenced yesterday in Suffolk Superior Court to four to five years in state prison, followed by five years' probation, the Suffolk district attorney's office said. Brendan Coleman, 21, was convicted of rape of a child, indecent assault and battery, and open and gross lewdness for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy in a secluded area of the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club and the Charlestown ice rink. Coleman is also being prosecuted in three pending cases of alleged sexual abuse."

"A Stoneham man was sentenced yesterday in Salem Superior Court to 21/2 years in a house of correction as well as 21/2 years in prison for motor vehicle homicide while driving under the influence. Stephen Guarente, 24, pleaded guilty last week to the charges, brought after a September 2001 accident in Lynn that killed 4-year-old David MacDuff Jr. and injured three people."

Dungie, I agree - lock 'em all up. I was mostly pissed because both bastards only got 5 years. I certainly hope I did not come across as feeling that the rape sentence was too light!!
