Alabama Judge To Resentence Rapist Who Got Zero Prison Time

Following an outcry over some complete and utter bullllllshit, an Alabama judge will resentence a convicted rapist who got exactly zero prison time for his crimes. Austin Clem was found guilty by a jury of raping a teenaged girl, who was his neighbor, twice when she was 14 and again when she was 18.  Two weeks ago, Judge James Woodroof sentenced Clem to two years in a program for non-violent offenders — despite the fact that rape is one of the most violent acts there is — and three years of supervised probation. Everyone but Austin Clem himself promptly asked Judge Woodroof, What the fuck are you thinking?  The district attorney for the Limestone County jurisdiction appealed the sentencing as too lenient. His victim, who is now age 20, even went on Melissa Harris-Perry’s show to speak out against his slap-on-the-wrist sentencing. The judge has responded accordingly: yesterday, he filed paperwork for re-sentencing.  Put that criminal behind bars where he belongs so he can’t hurt someone else again. [WHNT, Mother Jones]

Never have sex with a girl unless she’s sent you a text that proves the sexual relationship is consensual beforehand.  And it’s a good idea to even follow up any sexual encounter with a tasteful text message saying how you both enjoyed being with one another — even if you never plan on hooking up again.

This is the advice of Roxanne Jones, founding editor of ESPN The Magazine, in an op-ed on CNN.com about what she teaches her college-aged son as he navigates the sexual waters of university life. She continues:

Crazy, I know, but I’ve actually been encouraging my son and his friends to use sexting — minus the lewd photos — to protect themselves from being wrongly accused of rape. Because just as damning text messages and Facebook posts helped convict the high-schoolers in Steubenville of rape, technology can also be used to prove innocence.

In other words, Jones teaches her son that women cry rape all the time and he should protect himself from false accusations of sexual assault with inadmissable evidence, like a text message.

The only problem with this little plan is, well, everything. Keep reading »

Beer Pong Rapist

Well, this is horrible. Joey Poindexter, a 38-year-old real estate appraiser and beer pong player, allegedly infiltrated the beer pong tournament circuit in Montgomery County, Maryland to stalk his sexual assault victims. And he’s been doing it for the past 10 years. Poindexter was finally arrested after a young man called police to report that he’d met Poindexter at a beer pong tournament, drank a Long Island iced tea Poindexter bought him, and woken up the next morning at Poindexter’s residence with his clothes piled on the floor.

“It’s a horrific sexual assault case,” said Montgomery Assistant Police Chief Russ Hamill. “This is a sexual predator.” Keep reading »
