Justice Has Been Served

Justice Has Been Served

Another update on the Steubenville rape case – the two defendants have been found GUILTY, and will have to serve at least one year in juvenile prison.

Some have been complaining about the light sentence, and I think their concerns have merit. That said, it would have been far worse if they walked away with no punishment.

I hope this case and verdict serve as a warning to those who think they can get away with anything because of their connections, and to communities that lack the moral courage to do the right thing. Most of all, I hope this will encourage more women to come forward and take action against men and institutions that don’t respect them. This is a wonderful step in the right direction.
