Also from January 26

On the street
What do you think of Judge Paula Martin's decision to give a 60-day jail sentence, plus probation, to two 19-year-old men convicted of raping a druken 13-year-old Lawrence girl?

The judge was wrong. How can a drunken child — who can’t consent to sex even when sober — be a willing participant in sex?
I agree with the judge, but the sentence should have still been heavier. This sends the wrong message to rape victims about coming forward.
The sentence seems too light. But the judge knows all of the facts in the case, so I defer to her decision.
I agree with the judge that the men shouldn’t receive the presumed penalty of 13 years of prison because the girl was “an active participant” in her own rape.
