Federal Judge Refuses Prison Sentence For Convicted Sex Offender
"For a second time, a Detroit federal judge has refused to send a man to prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.
A federal appeals court last year had ordered Judge Arthur Tarnow to sentence R again, saying a punishment with no prison didn’t reflect the seriousness of the crime. The images showed bondage and torture.
RR returned to court Thursday and was placed on probation for several more years. Prosecutors had asked for a three-year prison sentence.
WWJ Legal Analyst Charlie Langton noted there are several factors that come into play when a judge determines sentencing."
