This is beyond despicable.
First woman in Alaska charged with child pornography receives no jail time
A former Alaska woman who was sexually abused by her paternal grandfather and then, as an adult, downloaded and traded videos of child exploitation has avoided any jail.
Right away, they establish that she is a victim. We can't treat her like other sick perverted people who possess and trade child porn, because she was a victim. Waaaaaaahhhh!!! no mention of the children who were victimized in making the porn she collected and distributed, though
Brittany Alexandra Robinson, 25 was the first woman in Alaska to be charged with possessing and distributing child pornography, according to Anchorage police.
A former day care worker at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Robinson received a prison-free sentence on Thursday. Superior Court Judge Kevin M. Saxby agreed with Robinson’s public defender that three years in prison, with three suspended, and five years of probation was appropriate.
A childcare worker? She had daily access to children, think about that.
I'd like someone to find me one example of a man who possessed child porn and was given a suspended sentence. Most pedophiles were victims of abuse themselves, but that is never accepted as an excuse. Unless you're a woman, apparently.
Alexander said the case presented prosecution challenges because Robinson was both “a victim as a child and an offender as a young woman "in fairly short order.”
“This gives us the opportunity to understand in a very direct fashion the long-term consequence that an adult’s exploitation of a child has on that child as the child grows older, and that’s what we’re seeing here with Ms. Robinson,” Alexander told the court.
Saxby said Robinson’s behavior was compulsive and wrong. But he said the evidence showed that the defendant’s acquisition of child pornography was not for her own gratification but rather “it was more exploratory.”
That’s how her public defender described the behavior too.
“Ms. Robinson wasn’t looking at these images for sexual gratification. It was more that she identified with the victims in the case,” Torres said.
She wasn't getting off on the child porn, she was identifying with the victims!! See, she's a victim!!!
I'd love to see a man try to make that same argument. They'd bury him beneath the jail. But because she's a woman, she gets off.
