There are far too many cases where rapists and sexual offenders are let off with too lenient of a sentence. Some of which are let off with community service; while victims of these crimes are left trauma for the rest of their lives. This is unacceptable!

Many rapes go on for several minutes and sometimes hours at a time. And, that's not counting repeat offenses/victimizations which can go on for years. During these times, victims are held against their will, whether by drug, force, or bondage, and taken advantage of in a sexual manner. These events can leave the victims physically injured as well as traumatized. After the rapes, victims show displays of withdraw, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and PTSD. This event is nothing less than torture.

So what do I propose? 

In sentencing, cases should be equal to that of those who commit torture. There is no difference in the acts and therefore should be tried equally. This will eliminate light sentencing for one of the most egregious crimes someone can commit as well ensure that those who were victimized are given fair justice.
