Priest gets probation for rape

Even though it's a historical case, I think those who abuse their position in the church should receive jail terms as punishment and as a deterrent to others.

Rape-Convicted Former Priest Gets No Prison

POSTED: 8:23 am EDT May 17, 2007

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A former Louisville priest convicted of rape was sentenced to five years on probation Thursday.

In March, Bruce Ewing was on trial for raping and sodomizing a teenage girl while he was a priest at St. Vincent Depaul in the mid-seventies.

A jury found Ewing guilty of one charge of rape, but acquitted him on two counts of sodomy.

The prosecution asked for a 3-year prison sentence for Ewing and the victim said she was disappointed.

He could receive 3 years in prison or a 5-year probated sentence.

Something has to be changed with these cases. There has got to be a set amount of minimum time for trash like this. Obviously leaving it up to these stupid judges isn't working. I mean, who lets a guy, I don't care his damn profession, out free after doing such a horrible thing? Again, if a guy is capable of this act he should not be walking the streets with other potential victims.
