Double Standard in sentencing?

A case out of Texas of a 40+ year old woman who was found guilty of sexual assault of her best friends child, a 13 year old boy at the time it started. 

So I would ask what is the likely sentence if we switched the genders of the two?  40+ year old male who sexually assaults his best friends 13 year old daughter for 2 years. 

You can read about the case here.  The sentence ended up being 5 years probation.  When cases like this happen and the offender is a male and gets a slap on the wrist all sorts of complaints are heard. 

As long as some female sex offenders continue to benefit from the gender double standard things will not really be fair, just, or equal for anyone.

Child abuse

This is a case from about a month ago.  I wanted to post this because sometimes it is easy to focus on one type of abuse only.  All types of abuse can be harmful.  For example while this case below used the terms child endangering does anyone think that this is somehow potentially less harmful than other types of abuse?

This case is from Ohio:


For eight years, Hamilton County’s Job & Family Services department received complaints suggesting Melody Clayton was abusing children.

That agency, which handles abuse complaints involving children, could find no evidence of that abuse even though one of her victims had burns all over his body, including his penis. The sex organs of the 17-month-old girl she babysat for weeks at a time were so infected, an operation was needed.

The girl’s other injuries included two broken bones each in her left leg and left arm, cigarette burns in a foot and lesions on her legs and head.

The boy’s other injuries included teeth broken by being hit or slapped, a gash in his head caused when hit by a broken glass thrown by Clayton and numerous cigarette burns on his face, head and other body parts.

She was sentenced to only 9 years.  While this site mainly focuses on female perpetrated sexual abuse I want to make sure that we keep in mind all types of abuse.  In my mind this was a case of torture.
