Judge who overturned child rape conviction and called 148 days “punishment enough” has been removed from criminal court and reassigned to small claims

It’s a start. Now get the SOB removed from the bench completely.
But he didnt lose his job. Still drawing a paycheck from the state.
This shit is why so many rapes go unreported. Many rape victims have described going to trial as a “second rape” since they’re forced to relive possibly the worst moments of their lives. This girl was brave enough to go through that and the judge basically just said “fuck you.” Disgusting. I’d bet money that he is also a rapist.
Nothing screams ‘I also raped a child’ more than going easy on a child rapist
Not even half a year is punishment enough for this heinous act? But some are serving life sentences for far lesser crimes?
This is not a win. The rat bastard just got demoted, still a cancer on society.
I did 6 months on a failure to register vehicle/failure to pay fines/ appear in court. My country fucking disgusts me sometimes
Just found out he’s up for re-election this year! And there’s also a petition going to sanction him: https://www.change.org/p/illinois-courts-commission-file-charges-against-judge-adrian-for-abuse-of-judicial-discretion-and-power?
Doesn’t seem enough but I guess is a step.
Thank fucking god, this country is so absolutely fucked I didn’t think he’d face any repercussions at all for this.
Fuck small claims. This guy lacks the morals and ethics to work a school crosswalk, yet a courtroom. He should be banned from anything having to do with the legal system ever, for his entire life.
I hope he chokes on the check that rapey boys daddy wrote him.
So many stories like this. There’s something about [edit: old] white male judges and rape.
Maybe all sexual assault cases should be assigned to women judges.
My guess is that they’re limiting the damage he can do while they figure out how to get rid of him.
*Up next: disgraced judge caught in child prostitution sting.*
Relentless public shaming and retroactive investigation for the last decades judgments is a safe start.
They might want to dig a little deeper. I wonder if a shoebox filled with cash somehow made its way to the judge before sentencing.
Maybe let’s have people who understand what rape is be the ones who preside? I’m not sure many people can really think about the act of someone forcing a part of themselves INSIDE of another person against their will. It’s not like an irritating splinter or a shard of glass, it’s a goddamned human body part (or sometimes other instruments) FORCED. INSIDE. ANOTHER. PERSON’S. BODY. AGAINST. THEIR. WILL. If you can’t understand what that means, how can you say 148 days is “punishment enough”? That person has to live with the memory of what happened and it’s even sickening to imagine it happening to another person.

Someone might want to get a warrant for his computer.
Look at the guy. Definitely a pedo.
sounds like someone paid off the judge
How is he a judge at all anymore?
Pure irony they slap this judge on the wrist for slapping a child rapist on the wrist.
So he’s still a judge. Didn’t really lose his job did he?
Why wasn’t he disbarred is the big question. He obviously has no moral compass
But what about the rapist? Is he still free?
So the rapist still walked?
Need to check his computers for some things I thik!!! Birds of a feather.
I would look very closely at the judges’ past…
I bet there are some 16 year old skeletons there.
It was a bench trial (the judge decides guilt/innocence; no jury), and this was the first court date after finding him guilty. It sounds like he had second thoughts about his initial call. I’d need to know more about this case before I can tell whether anger is appropriate, or where to direct it.
EDIT: u/sbarto’s link below really is a must-read for anyone else feeling similarly
With all of my non-experience, I feel like judges shouldn’t have the power to overturn a fair trial except in very special circumstances
Did his cases get overturned? Was the rapist re- tried? That child needs justice!
All of his cases need to be relooked at.
Why isn’t he fired?
Fucker should be given q cigarette and a blindfold. That’s the only courtesy him and that human filth he pardoned deserve.
He got mad at a prosecutor who liked a Facebook post about this, recused her from the room. What a little bitch who can’t admit his mistake
He needs to be reassigned to the bottom of a body of water
He probably rapes kids too
Reassign his ass to jail
