Ohio Justice – 3 Years in Prison for Raping a 10 Year Old Girl
No death penalty here. And I guess it’s better than probation. On Monday, Aaron Hymer of Waynesville, Ohio pleaded guilty to raping his daughter’s friend during a sleep-over at his home in March. Hymer’s attorney Marty Hubble said “Aaron has always maintained his innocence, but with the jury system, the possibility was there that he could be in prison for the rest of his life.”
Hymer appeared reluctant when he entered his plea and Judge Robert Peeler appeared reluctant to approve the plea. Peeler said ensuring Hymer won’t have access to the girl for eight years — his prison time and probation together — is some comfort.
The victim’s parents who were in the courtroom during the plea commented, “You never think anything like this can happen to your daughter. I don’t understand and it crushes me, I have to deal with her nightmares, she can’t sleep in her own bed, I just want to know why? Why? Why? It’s sick.”
There’s not too much more to this story, but perhaps the following link helps explain why. Apaprently the judge didn’t see this before meting out justice.
