The victim asked for leniency

The victim asked for leniency. She was a 15-year-old girl when he rapes took place. Pastor Michael Louis Anthony had sex with her too many times to count. The judge said no to leniency and sentenced him to 5 years in prison. I think the judge nailed it.
"Certain relationships we, as a society, hold sacrosanct," Warning said. "At the top of the list is pastor and parishioner."
Abusing the relationship "cannot be tolerated in any shape or form," he said.
Anthony, 43, formerly was youth pastor at Calvary Chapel church and had a relationship with the girl over two years. He did not make a statement at his sentencing.
One of his supporters, a KLM, posted this comment on my original post.
He did not rape her it was consensual sex. Never did he force her to have sex with him, they BOTH knew what they were doing there fore she is NOT A VICTIM.

In my book when a man takes a child to bed, I see the child as the victim. I think that is the humane and just way to view the situation.
