Can you believe they are recommending a 6th month sentence for this sicko? :furious:

http://www.kingcountyjournal.com/sited/story/html/147332

from article

======

"My daughter was two months old when he raped her. She was unable to scream for help. She was unable to even call my name,'' she said. ``If he could do that to a 2-month-old, I firmly believe that he will do it again.''

Oh my God!! from the same article!

====

"King County detectives said that Lehman Jr. also admitted molesting an unnamed 9-year-old girl in Maine in 1997, although he described the girl as the aggressor."

====

The girl as the aggressor?????? :furious: :mad: :eek:

I couldn't help but wonder if his father's position in the State Department of Corrections had anything to do with the lenient sentence for this repeat offender. I hope he wasn't pulling any strings behind the scenes for his pedophile son.

He had to have been. That is the only reason they didn't throw him away for a long time! It has to be, especially when you realize he has done this before! That is just awful...that makes me sick!!

This man is obviously very sick and I am sure his dad's position is what is giving him the lesser sentence. IMO, this man needs to be locked up for as long as possible. He will otherwise get involved with another woman with a baby or small children and the cycle will repeat itself. Very disturbing!

This man is a convicted robber(and served a whole day for it), has admitted to previously molesting a 9 year old (who he thinks was the aggressor), and admits he molested a 2 month old girl, and anyone thinks a suspended six month sentence is normal?

I think I'm speechless.

I agree ~ it is absolutely despicable, a totally defenseless baby.

I can't beleive that guy will be out again soon.

When I hear of cases like this - I start to favour vigilante justice, someone, somewhere, sometime will do this guy in.

He's done it twice. Next time, he'll likely kill someone. He's a chronic pedo.

I kinda like Mosaic justice. Let the perp have the same experience as the victim.

Here's some more about this case from a sleuthing forum I came across by googling the perp's name, State, and offense. This happened in 2003 so he has most likely been victimizing others for 6 yrs now (minus 3 mos.) --makes me sick. A 2 month old baby....

I didn't see anything more recent than the item I found.
It's totally despicable that this guy got off scott free (I'm sure it is) because his father is a bigwig in the Corrections system. What's wrong with this picture???? :waitasec:

Father and Son should both be thrown in the pen with the various gang groups. Of course it's because of strings, payoffs, and the daddy's job position. Totally sickening. I'm ashamed of the U.S. justice system. What a big joke.

Not to fan the flames, but when I googled him a number of Joseph Lehman Jr's came up on facebook.....I looked at each of them wondering if this man could be that bold....what a thought.

1 Secretary Lehman's son pleaded guilty to rape of a child in the first degree,
and there was an ensuing national media outcry about the prosecution's sentencing
recommendation of only probation, which a judge of the superior court rejected. In
December 2003, Joseph Lehman Jr. was sentenced to four years in prison, to be served
outside the Washington DOC. CP 623-776, Ex. 4

This came from a very, very interesting unfair DOC dismissal, sort of indirectly related to the Lehman case. Still looking for more info. on this case.

JUDICIAL SENTENCING PRACTICES:

SELECTED FELONIES

snip

Special Sex Offender Sentencing Alternative (SSOSA). Certain first-time sex offenders, not convicted of Rape 1 or 2, can receive a SSOSA sentence if the court finds that they can be treated in a community setting. The court must consider the victim’s opinion whether the offender should receive this sentence. A SSOSA sentence is a standard-range sentence to jail or prison, suspended on condition that the offender receive inpatient or outpatient treatment and meet other requirements. Up to six months in jail may be required.

http://www.sgc.wa.gov/PUBS/JudgesReport/1999_Judges_Report_Narrative.doc

I'm quite sure this is what they were trying to sentence him under, however it doesn't fly because he was convicted of Rape of a Child 1. Based on this report, which was authored in part by Lehman's father, standard sentencing for Rape of a Child should be 9 years - 23 years and 3 months. Clearly, even the 4 years Lehman ended up getting is far short of normal sentencing patterns. Under Appendix B: List of Offenses Covered in this Report, Rape of a Child 1 is Class A and a Seriousness Level XII. Under Table 1: Sentencing Grid, Seriousness Level XII requires a minimum sentence of 9 years and a maximum of 23 years 3 months. I have serious questions about how this case was adjudicated and I also have to question whether the father still has a job and if so, why. Further, it seems, Lehman would have been given a suspended 6 month sentence (as recommended by the prosecutor?) had it not been for public outcry. Public outcry should not be needed in order to ensure an adequate sentence, of which they still failed to give in this case.

This case is really disturbing me. There has to be some kind of rules and regulations regarding family of DOC that are charged with crimes. Clearly the father has had a hand in protecting his son from serious sentences. I mean 1 day for robbery? There is no way that he didn't intervene. There has to be somewhere to take this issue. Obviously anybody in the justice system in Washington is going to know this guy and is going to cover his rear end. Any thoughts out there?

I never understand that family behaviour at all. all I can say is if it were my son I'd be the first one in the mob with the noose. I raised mine better than that though, perhaps that's the difference. I agree with the PP. dont support the DP typically but when it comes to raping an infant, you arent worth air anymore. IMO.
