No jail time.Osborn, then a student at Cosby High School, sexually assaulted the 14-year-old girl after they attended a school play together. Prosecutors said Osborn went on a walk with the girl, who didn't know the Cosby campus, and when the path ended at a fence, Osborn became aggressive.
Barr said he forced the 14-year-old onto her knees, then tied a belt around her neck and hands before the assault. Osborn released her around the time her mother was supposed to pick her up.
Barr argued that the former high school wrestler had a history of sexual assault – at the age of 12 he was charged with grabbing a student's genitals, according to the paper. Girls accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior on seven different occasions, Barr said.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Evan Nelson also testified that Osborn has a "moderately high risk" of reoffending, based on standardized tests.
Osborn, who will have to register as a sex offender, lost an academic scholarship to the University of Mary Washington, according to the Times-Dispatch.
No jail time.The victim told police that 34-year-old Schneider offered her a ride from a gas station in Anchorage to Muldoon, Alaska. Schneider introduced himself as “Dan” and said he knew the victim, but she denied ever having met him, APD Detective Brett Sarber wrote in the criminal complaint.
Instead of driving to Muldoon, Schneider drove in a different direction, parked his SUV and asked the victim to get out. Schneider then tackled her and told her he was going kill her.
“She said she could not fight him off, he was too heavy and had her down being choked to death,” Sarber wrote. “[The victim] said she lost consciousness, thinking she was going to die.”
Schneider reportedly strangled her until she was unconscious and then masturbated on her, according to court documents. When she woke up, he told her he was not going to kill her but needed her to believe she would die “so that he could be sexually fulfilled.”
He was charged with four felony counts. However, a plea deal between his defense team and the state allowed him to plead guilty to one felony assault and get no jail time, with credit for time served and probation.
“But I would like the gentleman to be on notice that this is his one pass,” state prosecutor Andrew Grannik said in court on Wednesday, according to KTVA. “It’s not really a pass, but given the conduct, one might consider that it is.”
Judge Michael Corey accepted the plea deal, citing the possibility of rehabilitation. “This can never happen again,” Corey reportedly told Schneider.
I heard on NPR just now that the prosecutor told the judge that Schneider had lost his job and that that was punishment enough, "a life sentence". And that Schneider didn't apologize, but did thank the court and told the court that this had been an opporunity for him to become a better husband and a better father.
So look out, men. A mere accusation of sexual assault could cost you a scholarship or your job, provided that it is true and that you choked your victim, even if not necessarily to unconsciousness.
Won't cost you a seat on the Supreme Court, but still.
