    A 55 year old man was sentenced to 25 years by Judge E. Scott Bradley. He raped a 14 year old girl.

    The SAME judge sentenced a 48 year old woman who raped a 15 year old boy to two years probation.

    I think they call it 'male privilege', right? Or is it 'equality'? I forget.

    When a man rapes a child he's a heinous, evil individual, when a woman rapes a child she's 'had a tough life':

    Defense attorney Eugene Maurer asked for leniency, saying Shattuck “has had struggles throughout her life,” which included her former husband leaving her for a younger woman.“It was a pretty devastating blow to her psyche,” he said. “The press has reveled in her fall from prominence in the Baltimore area,” added Maurer, who described Shattuck as “a caring, empathetic, good and decent person.”

    Under the law women are treated far more leniently than men, after all there's a crime that a man get life imprisonment for that a woman isn't capable of committing because of the sexist wording. Just as women have their glass ceiling men are treated unfairly by the law/courts

    I'm sure the details for both stories are different and all were taken into account, thus affecting sentencing.

    Ok so firstly, the man is black and we all know that will add on years.
    Secondly:
    "lured into sex by promising she could help him raise a puppy."

    So that could influence decision as well, that he's a predator. As he didn't know this girl, so he probably could do it again. It also said that the victim asked for maximum time.

    The woman:
    pleaded guilty to a different "degree" of rape than what the man was tried for, and knew the boy extensively, but initiated the sex after a certain period of time. The man just said here look at my puppy and attacked her, from what I read.

    The issue here is she is a wealthy celebrity, and white. The man is poor, a nobody, and black. It's not that she's a woman. It's more so, if you wanna argue inequality, that her colour and money got her pardoned. If she doesn't comply with her probation and fines, she gets the 15 yr sentence.

    It's also the United States.

    There are probably other factors in each case which affected how it was dealt with.
    But I do agree that women are treated more leniently by the law in general.
