Judge Blames Girl, 10, For Being Raped

(Oxford, England) So far, this is the worst case of "blame the victim" I have seen.

A 25-year-old window cleaner, Keith Fenn, will be released after four months in jail for twice raping a 10-year-old girl.

Judge Julian Hall sentenced Fenn the rapist to two years but only four months remain after being given credit for time served.

Judge Julian Hall decided to be lenient because the girl "didn't look 10."

He caused fury earlier this year by freeing another paedophile, telling him to buy his six-year-old victim a new bicycle.

The judge referred to the 10-year-old as a "young woman," and called her "very disturbed, very needy and sexually precocious."

He told Oxford Crown Court: "She liked to dress provocatively."

Fenn's accomplice, 34-year-old Darren Wright, was able to walk free since he was only sentenced to nine months.

Judge Julian Hall (pic) shouldn't be allowed to continue.
