Lenient Sentencing in Baby Sex Torture Cases by Ketanji Brown Jackson

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.8

Ketanji Brown Jackson showed leniency to offenders in 8 child-porn cases where evidence was given of “sadomasichistic” torture of toddlers and infants. “She’s clearly not a mainstream judge,” said Mike Davis, who served as a chief counsel for nominations to Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), former Senate Judiciary Committee chairman. Despite arguments by investigators and prosecutors for tougher punishments, Jackson gives lighter sentences for offenders who have committed egregious crimes towards children.
