Last night AC360 reported on the confessed rapist who was sentenced to 45 days in jail, five years probation and 250 hours of community service at a rape crisis center. Judge Jeanine Howard told the Dallas Morning News that she based her ruling in part on the sexual history of the victim, who was just 14-years-old at the time. Judge Howard implied the girl was promiscuous, and wasn't the victim she claimed to be. Gary Tuchman spent the day trying to track down the judge.
