Petition Closed

Brent Girouex is a pastor and youth counselor convicted of raping four boys. His sentence was reduced from 17 years in prison to probation and counseling. His excuse for the crime? He meant to sexually purify the boys for God by praying while he raped them. Why isn't this man in prison?

Letter to
District Court Judge of Iowa Greg Steensland
By signing this petition, I agree that Brent Girouex's sentence is too lenient. Rape is a serious crime, and Girouex deserves to be in prison!
