Is there chance that could backfire, and he end's up getting a harsher sentence after a retrial?

I'm not a fan of tattoos, especially facial ones. Maybe just give the kid a choice between full castration or life on the sex offender registry?

This says it better than I can.
As disgusting as I find this I can't get behind a recall effort. I don't even think the judiciary should be elected in the first place.

Is it only women who are incapable of giving consent while drunk, or does that apply to men to? Because the latter would mean men who commit sex offenses while intoxicated shouldn't be held responsible (or at least get a lighter punishment), and the former is just plain ridiculous. What when both parties are male (or female)? Does whoever was drunker automatically get designated the victim while the less drunk one get designated the perpetrator?
