As at Thursday morning, there were about 38,000 signed petition on a Change.org petition calling for his impeachment for the 60-day sentence he gave the Glasgow, Montana father who pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping his daughter.
Part of the petition reads:
“A father repeatedly raped his 12-year old daughter.” “It’s time to start punishing the judges who let these monsters walk our streets”.During an Oct. 4 sentencing hearing, Deputy Valley County Attorney Dylan Jenson said Prosecutors had recommended a mandatory 25-year sentence, 100 years with 75 suspended, which is what state law calls for.
Rather than take the advise of the prosecuting team, Judge McKeon handed down a far lighter sentence: a 30-year suspended prison sentence, which means the man will only serve it if he fails to meet the conditions of his probation. (The Judge admits his decision in domestic-abuse case had ‘the most tragic result possible".)
