Child Molester Not Considered “Safe” in Prison Gets Probation

I am in awe (and not in a good way) about how criminals can be treated as victims. Be prepared to be furious:

SIDNEY, Neb. — A man found guilty of sexually assaulting a child has been given 10 years of probation by a judge who said the man was too small to survive prison.

District Judge Kristine Cecava of Cheyenne County on Tuesday sentenced Richard Thompson, 50, on two counts of sexually assaulting a minor.

Cecava told Thompson in court that his crime “is absolutely inexcusable” and that he deserved a long sentence. But she expressed concern that the 5-foot-1-inch Thompson would be especially imperiled by prison dangers.

Yes. You heard that right. Poor Mr. Child Molester might get himself hurt in prison because he’s short-of-stature so let’s give him a piddly-ass 10 year probation sentence. Why can’t I feel any empathy whatsoever for this scum of society? C’mon. Does the 50-year-old guy not understand that there are consequences to the crime he committed? Of course he does. So he deserves the same consequences that the 5′9″ child molester gets. THE PUNISHMENT SHOULD FIT THE CRIME. The molester is *not* the victim here and I find it egregious that a judge would give him a lessened sentence for this reason.

Anyone who follows these types of cases knows rehabilitation for pedophiles and child molesters is virtually fruitless. So do *you* think 10 years of probation is going to keep Mr. Thompson away from another child? Talk about a slap on the wrist:

Thompson will be electronically monitored the first four months of his probation, and he was told to never be alone with someone under age 18 or date or live with a woman whose children were under 18. Cecava also ordered Thompson to get rid of his pornography.

I’m *sure* he’ll listen. If I was a betting person, I’d say we’ll be reading about him and his next victim in the not-too-distant future. What an avoidable tragedy that is.

UPDATE: Jon Bruning, Nebraska’s Attorney General is my hero! Take *that* Cecava!

This is a bunch of BULL! I can not believe our system continues to fail us!! This guy will be doing it immediately, but now he will be a little bit more careful...I am telling you it do have some to do with victims needing to stand up and be firm...make noise!! get media involved...get a vigiant crew together...DO NOT let these monsters win...NOW this evil creature needs to be monitored not just by GPS and probation but by his neighbors. Probation doesn't camp out in his yard and GPS id not watch, it is a a recording that the PO can go back and review. I would be watching his ever move...and I would let him know I was watching. Just another disappointment with our system... PLEASE BE THE EYES and the PROTECTORS of our children!! EDUCATE!

why does our nation not care about our children. why are we protecting a criminal. would someone tell me why. where is the kids mother that this happened to. she should get the media to put it on every channel there is. the judge should be disbarred. who gives a damn if this guy is a little piss ant. it would be a blessing if someone hurt this guy like he hurt a little kid. ladies enough is enough. women have set back long enough and kept thier mouths shut. men years a go treated women and children like dogs. we are still letting them. if he molest a kid the next time they will be finding her body at the bottom of a ravine. why are the people there letting this happen. jesus. the low down worthless piece of shit should die and rot in jail for the rest of his life. why does our country allow people to do this to our kids and not pay for it. maybe someone will hurt him on the outside too. then what will the judge do? that is the most lame excuse i have ever heard of in my life, he will not survive in prison. i did not think that was an issue. if you do the crime.....pay the time. i thought when you were a criminal you did not get to pick and choose whether you should stay or go, because of how big or little you were. a crime is a crime. man i have never been so disgusted in my life. desiree sewell

Hope you folks in Nebraska remember this when election day rolls around. That's the only way to get their attention. Hopefully the child has an angry relative who will take care of this jerk in a method that would make him wish he had gone to jail. I'm sure he's never been able to please a woman, let's see if a Bull can pleasure himself with this pervert. I'd be in favor of having Judge Krissy watch and wonder if she's next. Oh wait, looking at her picture, I'm afraid she just might enjoy it too much.

Is there anyone out there who can provide the address of this dumbass judge so that we can write her a letter expressing our outrage regarding her stupidity?

robert said:

the real criminal in this case is ..... THE JUDGE!

Nancy Stroosnyder said:

I am equally as outraged! Since WHEN did HEIGHT have any bearing on sentencing for such a horrific crime, or ANY crime for that matter! I dare say that that judge is the ONLY person caring for the well-being of that child-molester.

I will go back now to my search for the address of the district court. When I find it, I'll be back and post it!

I didn't see an email address. When I write to officials I always use snail mail. I think email is to easy for them to snap back a quick FORM reply that tells you they probably never even read your letter.

Get ANGRY and let the mail flow!

This isn't the first case she has totally screwed up! Just to let you know, the people in Nebraska DID NOT elect her. She was appointed by now Secretary of Ag --- Johannes!

Merri said:

Thanks for posting her address, Nancy!

Vinnie said:

She's up for a retention vote in 2008.

She also gave a guy 5-8 years in the pen for Theft by Deception. Not that it wasn't deserved, but no idea on how tall he was.

Well, it seems that Pat Robertson can leg press 2000 pounds. Of course, according to this story, no one can say for sure exactly WHEN this took place. I do have one question: Was Pat filled with the Spirit when he did it?

In what I am sure

I am the reporter who broke this story. I was sitting in the courtroom when it happened. I welcome your letters to my newspaper and my work email is ... We have been publishing every letter we get on the sentencing and won't you PLEASE write me.
Thank you,

Thank you for posting the address. I will send my letter out and pass it along. This is an outrage! Does anyone know if this creep had a past record of this? Most of these sick individuals are repeat offenders.

Feel like letting the judge know what you think about her perverted sense of justice? Home & office/looks like they've blocked their email.
