VIOLENT CRIMES NOT “VIOLENT” UNDER CURRENT CALIFORNIA LAW

Date rape isn’t a violent crime in California. Seriously

“Under current California law, more than 20 clearly violent crimes aren’t classified as violent, including rape of an unconscious person, trafficking a child for prostitution, assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence.

You can pimp a child for sex, beat a spouse or rape a young woman who passes out at a frat party, and it’s not considered a violent offense under state law, and that’s offensive.”

COURT RULES VIOLENT SEX OFFENDERS AND CHILD MOLESTERS ELIGIBLE FOR EARLY RELEASE UNDER PROP 57

Prop 57: Cops say court ruling opens door to early release of violent felons

“Gregory Gadlin is a convicted rapist and child molester serving 35 years to life in prison under the state’s Three Strikes and You’re Out law after an assault with a deadly weapon, but an appellate court decision this week said he should be eligible for consideration for early release.

Now, police officers and other victims’ advocates warn that the ruling could open the door to early releases of more violent felons under Proposition 57, the 2016 initiative aimed at easing prison overcrowding.”

“The felon was convicted of stabbing his girlfriend, forcibly molesting his 11-year-old niece and gang raping a 17-year-old pregnant teenager.”

“This ruling marks the second time in the past year that a court has ruled that pedophiles and rapists will be considered for early release from prison (proponents promised voters this would never happen) under the highly misrepresented Proposition 57.”
