Basically should convicted child predators/molesters get a MANDATORY 25 years in prison MINIMUM?
And no, I'm talking about an 18 year old having sex with a consenting 16 year old or some other statutory case like that.

Does it matter if the perpetrator is a hot looking female teacher having sex with one of her underage students?
Apparently if she is female and hot looking enough we can overlook her transgressions with a slap on the wrist.
Much of the problem comes from non-uniform standards from state to state of the age of consent and the different ages at which girls and boys become mature or able to give consent. The US is one of a few countries that allow states or provinces to decide these things on their own. If that continues to be the case, I don't see how there can be a rational federal law that governs these issues that have traditionally been left to the states. There needs to be a uniform national standard to make a uniform national sentencing law.
Given that conservatives are reluctant to fund social programs, I'd hate to see the lion's share of limited resources going to the managing the criminal. I think we need to spend more on helping victims of child abuse and teaching children about their rights and their body. In this way, I favor victims rights over the rights of criminals.
That said, I do think judges need at least a tiny bit of latitude. I don't support mandatory sentences for anything, because there are always exceptional cases. For example, in the case of abuse by a family member, the family may exert constant pressure on a child not to testify or press charges. (I know of a situation like that, where the granddaughter ultimately decided to do nothing, meaning the grandfather got off scott free.)
I dont really care about exceptional circumstances to pedophilia/child molestation.
Why shouldnt there be a MINIMUM of 25 years for a CONVICTED pedophile?
I have nothing against a violent pedophile getting 25 years in prison, but if there are limited funds, I'd rather see some of that money go to programs that help the victim and help prevent similar crimes from taking place. Perhaps we could do both with a small tax increase?
Too much $$$ is spent on non effectual offender programs, take this money and spend it on victims so they do not become offenders, child molesters ( including female teachers) should do a mandatory minimum of 25 years....no chance of parole. I agree with Jessica's law...
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
Perhaps we could do both with a small tax increase?

RAISE TAXES, DON'T PUNISH THE SCUMMY RAT B ASTARD JUST RAISE TAXES.
What do they do with Pedophiles in China? What does Castro do with them? do they raise the taxes?
The only way to completely cure a pedophile is take away his urge for sex FOREVER.
You don't have to raise taxes to do that, you can give him some Novocain and then "Fix Him", the local Vet can do it, then he can go live wherever he wants, you can even let him open up a daycare center.
