Is A Rapist Lower Risk Once They’ve Been Castrated?
TJ Hoen MacKenzie, a convicted child rapist, recently won his third attempt to be reclassified as a lower-risk prisoner after medical treatments left him with a less raging libido. While MacKenzie still has a twig, his berries were plucked after being diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005. MacKenzie was arrested in 1991 for the rape and intent to rape of two girls under the age of 16. But Lady Justice Arden of the UK Court of Appeal thinks his new physical “shortcomings” will prevent him from ever repeating his heinous crimes. He’s now a Category B prisoner, but MacKenzie is in no way out the door. His lower-risk status only allows him access to courses for a release application from his current life sentence. Treatment or not, the man got what he deserved. [Daily Mail]
