A man in America pleaded guilty to sexually abusing and raping four women; but unlike other people who have committed the same crimes, the gentleman will not go under pressure due to the opinion of a judge in New York who expressed that it was not the most appropriate to send him behind bars.
Christopher Belter, 20, pleaded guilty in 2019 to attempted first degree abuse, third degree rape and two counts of second degree sexual assault; These charges were made separately, that is, 2017 and 2018, yes, all in Lewiton, New York, according to the documents presented by the authorities.
When the aforementioned crimes were carried out, he and the affected women were under 18 years of age. In the first instance, he was granted provisional parole for two years with limits on the use of the internet and access to pornography, limits that he ended up violating, according to court documents.
Why won’t he go to prison?
In accordance with Judge Matthew J. Murphy cannot be placed on juvenile offender status, since it would be judging him as an adult. Now, last Tuesday, the same New York judge decided to give him a new sentence, the same where he will have probation, once again.
According to the official documents, Murphy would have given eight years of probation and must be registered as a sex offender, but that spending time in prison would be inappropriate. In an interview with WKBW, the judge said that it was a sentence that was difficult for him to pass.
“I suffered a lot. I am not ashamed to say that I actually prayed about what was the appropriate sentence in this case because there was great pain. There was great damage. Multiple crimes were committed in the case. It seems to me that a sentence that involves imprisonment or partial imprisonment is not appropriate, so I am going to sentence you with probation “, said the judge.
