We already knew that Biden’s SCOTUS Nominee, Kentanji Brown Jackson, was soft on offenders in sickening child pornography cases. Senator Josh Hawley brilliantly demolished her on that issue and showed how she repeatedly gave the benefit of the doubt to those who possessed child porn.
Well, it gets worse. According to a report in the New York Post, Judge Jackson even went so far as to give the offender in an absolutely stomach-churning “baby sex torture” child porn case a mere slap on the wrist. As the Post reported:
In July 2020, Jackson gave the bare minimum sentence to a defendant convicted of distributing images and videos of infants being sexually abused, and who had boasted of molesting his 13-year-old cousin, even though she knew the defendant refused “to take full responsibility” for his crimes, a transcript reveals. In 2018, Christopher Michael Downs was busted trading child porn in a private online chat room, “Pedos Only,” including images of adult males raping “a prepubescent female child,” according to court records. He posted 33 graphic photos, including an image of a naked female child as young as 2 years old. Downs, then 30, told the group, “I once fooled around with my 13-year-old cousin.” He also uploaded a 10-second video of “a prepubescent female lying in a bathtub and with an adult male inserting his penis into her mouth.”
Despite herself admitting that the felon in that beyond horrific case was at “risk of reoffending,” Jackson proceeded to only give him the statutory bare minimum, 60 months, despite the fact that prosecutors were asking for 6 years and the average is 81 months. Yet worse, she gave him credit for “time served,” so really he only received 38 months from Jackson.
And he’s not the only one sharing images of babies being tortured that got a slap on the wrist from Jackson. Again according to the NYP:
In her April 2021 sentencing of child porn distributor Ryan Manning Cooper, Jackson contradicted the findings of prosecutors, dismissing the crimes they described as “on the more egregious or extreme spectrum” of child porn as not “especially egregious.” Among the more than 600 images prosecutors told the judge he traded were sexually explicit pics depicting bondage of infants and toddlers. Prosecutors also busted him with a video of a “pre-pubescent boy being penetrated anally and orally” by an older male.
Jackson, who in that case said “I don’t find persuasive the government’s arguments concerning why they think that this is a particularly egregious child pornography offense, which means I struggled to find a good reason to impose a sentence that is more severe in this case,” gave Cooper a slap on the wrist too.
Yes, she didn’t find images of the bondage of infants and toddlers “particularly egregious.” Most of America would probably disagree with that sickening assessment.
In another case she gave a sicko who admitted to wanting to have sex with children as young as 5 and who took concrete steps to do so only 57 months in jail, far fewer than the number requested by prosecutors.
“Ketanji Brown Jackson heard horrifying details of “sadomasochistic” torture of young kids — including “infants and toddlers” — yet challenged the disturbing evidence presented by prosecutors and disregarded their prison recommendations to give the lightest possible punishments”
Jackson complained that current sentencing schemes don’t accurately measure the severity of child porn offenses, because computers, the Internet and digital cameras make it “so easy” to collect, store and distribute illegal porn
She ignored the advice of expert witnesses who disputed her theory that child pornographers are somehow not pedophiles,” said Mike Davis, president of the Article III Project @mrddmia
Mike Davis also said “She’s clearly not a mainstream judge. After she heard details of sex torture of young kids, including babies, she nonetheless disregarded the official sentencing guidelines and prosecutors’ recommendations to give rock-bottom sentences in eight of eight cases. [She seems] more concerned about the well-being of pedophiles than the safety of your children — and thanks to her, they may be living in your neighborhood right now.”
