Judge: No Prison Time for 'gay' Rapist Teacher

This is outrageous.

A former high school teacher who pleaded guilty to the homosexual rape of one of his teenage students will avoid jail time.

Gregory Pathiakis, 26, of Brockton, Mass., pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of rape of a child, enticement of a child under 16, five counts of possession of child pornography and one count of distribution of harmful material to a child, according to the Enterprise newspaper of Brockton, Mass.

Pathiakis, who quit his job after school officials questioned his extracurricular contact with students, was arrested in January 2004 after a 15-year-old boy told authorities the Middleboro High School teacher raped him Dec. 23, 2003.

Prosecutors asked Brockton Superior Court Judge Suzanne V. Delvecchio to give Pathiakis four to eight years in state prison, followed by five years probation. But she issued a suspended, 2 1/2-year jail term, followed by five years probation.

This is absolutely disgusting. This guy rapes a kid, and he walks free? Because some bleeding heart judge feels bad for the guy? You know who I feel bad for? The kid- you know, the actual victim in this case.

The boy wrote a statement, read by his father in court, telling the teacher, "I feel you deserve jail. You are a disgrace to all teachers."

The teen said the incident forced him to leave school and activities he loved and be homeschooled.

The boy's mother told the court, "You have destroyed our child and our family."

So we have a man in a position of authority use that advantage to rape a kid, and he gets away with no jail time. And this isn't an isolated case, either. Earlier this month a Vermont judge gave a man who repeatedly raped a little girl for four years a sixty day sentence because he "no longer believed in punishment."

I'm sorry, but no judge should have that much power. They're putting predators back out on the streets, and putting innocent people at risk. Not to mention it increases the likelihood of people taking the law into their own hands. I don't know about you guys, but if someone did that to my little brother and then got away with nothing but a slap on the wrist, I would take care of the matter myself. If the legal system wouldn't punish the person, I would, because you do not mess with my family and get away with it.

After all, with Judges like these, it isn't like I'd have to worry about jail time...

You are absolutely right... that is DISGUSTING! When the rule of law begins to suffer because of our attempts political correctness we will certainly see a failure of our entire system. Thanks for the fundraising ideas too! I appreciate it!
