It doesn't matter if only one child or one hundred children are affected - it is still wrong.
Both should have received equally harsh sentencing.
I am not sure I agree with you gawalkman. A person who hurts one hundred children to me is worse than a person who hurts only one. Granted both are terrible but the person who hurt 100 is obviously more dangerous.
watchpig, I agree with you, male or female should not make a difference in the sentence they received but do we know all of the circumstances? I don't believe based on what I know Ms. Jackson got what she deserved but maybe this guy did.
for some reason its appears to be worse if a man does it. if a woman does it, it seems to be a slap on the wrist. why? society i reckon.
the same as with kids. if a 15 yr. old girl gets laid every weekend, she is a ho. if a boy gets laid every weekend he is a stud. yeah, thats my boy!!!!
thats society. it aint gonna change.
