Report: Thousands of child sex predators given light sentences in California

The Daily Mail recently reported that thousands convicted child sex offenders have been been released in California despite spending less than a year behind bars.

What’s more, critics say that much of the blame for this scandal lies with one high-profile Democrat. 

Slap on the wrist for “awful, heinous crimes”

The report was written by Daily Mail contributor Josh Boswell who told Tucker Carlson that he uncovered some 7,000 individuals who had gotten light sentences after being “lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age.”

Boswell told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night that the California Justice Department initially refused to provide him with the information he was looking for.

The reporter explained that he “wrote a bit of code” to search through the state’s publicly assessable sex offender registry.

“There’s a sense that maybe there are a few people who haven’t really been convicted of anything super serious,” Bowell acknowledged when Carlson described a hypothetical scenario of a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old “getting frisky at the prom.”

However, the reporter then went on to list a number of horrifying offenses that some of the predators had been found guilty of.

“These are people that are spending a few months in prison for these really awful, heinous crimes,” Boswell explained.

Left-wing LA district attorney accused of failing victims

District Attorney Jonathan Hatami serves as in Los Angeles County’s Complex Child Abuse Unit, and he told Boswell told far-left Democratic District Attorney George Gascón is failing abuse victims through his pursuit of light sentences.

“Thousands of child victims are being denied justice and George Gascón and his group of radical prosecutors can [sic] care less,” Boswell quoted Hatami as complaining.

“That has been the push for the last at least five years: letting people out of prison much earlier than what their sentences were for,” the prosecutor went on to assert.

Former sex crimes prosecutor Samuel Dordulian agreed, saying, “Statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again. Letting these people out early, we’re allowing for a lot more victimization. And that’s terrifying.”
