Letter: Sentence too lenient

Regarding the sentencing of Coy Sheets on charges of taking indecent liberties with children:

How does any decent man, human being or parent allow such a travesty of justice to go forth as in the case of a child molester getting 45 days of house arrest for molesting our children? I can think of one judge that needs to lose his seat on the bench, and a prosecutor, for allowing this deal to happen. It makes me question their motives and wonder whether we need anyone like them in our community.
