US Attorney: Child porn sentences need study

-

US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald told the US Sentencing Commission that judges seem to be handing down more lenient sentences in child pornography cases and departing from guidelines that are tough but no longer mandatory, the Bloomington Pantagraph reports.

In recommending the commission study the issue further, he pointed out that while members of drug-selling street gangs sometimes drop out of gang activity as they get older, people who buy child pornography tend not to “age out” of their crime. That might make a good argument for longer sentences, he said.
