Judge Gives Accused Rapist Leniency Because He Comes “From A Good Family”

A judge is currently under fire for going easy on an accused rapist who comes “from a good family.”

According to the Daily Mail, the boy, only identified in court documents as G.M.C., sexually assaulted a girl at a pajama-themed basement party filled with about 30 other teens in New Jersey where alcohol was involved. The boy, who was also drunk, had walked to a dark area of a room with the visibly drunk victim and filmed himself on his cellphone penetrating the girl from behind. He then sent the clip to several friends and texted his buddies, saying: “When your first time having sex was rape.”

Initially, the court wanted to try the teen as an adult but New Jersey Judge James Troiano denied prosecutors’ motion to do so and instead said:

“This young man comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school where he was doing extremely well,” The New York Post quotes. He is clearly a candidate for not just college but probably for a good college. His scores for college entry were very high,” said Troiano.

However, last month, the judge’s decision was overturned by a higher court in a highly critical 14-page ruling, warning Troiano of any bias towards privileged alleged perpetrators. This means the case could now be moved from family court to a grand jury where the boy would be treated as an adult, The Daily Mail reports.
