The irony of this sad situation is that as a conservative, Viet Nam
vet and ex prosecuter, Cashman was previously known as a real
hard liner when it came to sentancing.

Hi there, you are absolutely correct...he was known as a hard-liner when it came to sentencing....I think many people/legislators, etc., were shocked with the initial sentence. Again, I am not excusing at all the decision(s)...I also believe that until there is clear and sensible legislation without a lot of wiggle room, there will continue to be situations/cases/decisions/sentencing problems and strong debates. I am learning that for the most part, legislation is created as a reaction to something rather than being pro-active. I think it is important to have state judiciary committees take additional time, if necessary, to consider any/every possible situation/outcome and then prepare legislation rather than black/white stuff. It is too much gray that creates, in my opinion, what ends up slipping through the cracks. There is a state, I believe it is Ohio, which is considering issuing special colored license plates which will denote domestic violence offenders .. I think the more of a spotlight on offenders, albeit,DV, sex offenders, the better. I think it is also important for all community members to make a stand, write letters to newspapers, etc. and put pressure on our legislators regarding sentencing laws, registries, etc. We all have a moral and ethical responsibility to do something and make it clear that this kind of action and behavior is unacceptable and reprehensible.

Perhaps Bill O'Reilly and others can use their media skills to not attack states but rather emphasize the importance of change and action.

Thanks!
Thanks!

I'm guessing that judge won't hold his position long.
