A Trumbull County, Ohio judge famous for this sentencing statement made to someone who had robbed, kidnapped and raped a 12-year old girl:
When you slithered out of your hole that day, (and) spewed your venom all over this defenseless 12-year old girl, you made the court's Top 10 hit list. I've had the misfortune of being involved with some of the lowest scum this county has to offer, and you've made the Top 10. In a way, the best sentence this court could give would be no sentence at all, because if you left this courtroom, I don't think you would be alive 10 minutes. You are nothing but a weed, a weed among wheat....
And when we have a weed, it's my job to eradicate the weed, because if I don't, you will choke the wheat.
Therefore, I'm going to take you off the streets for just as long as I possibly can.
(The judge then ticked off long sentence after long sentence for each of the many crimes committed against the girl.)
... It means you aren't even eligible for parole until you're 92. That leaves only one more count, aggravated robbery.... You stole this little girl's bra as a souvenir, probably to brag about it to your friends, later on.
Well, I'm going to give you a souvenir of Trumbull County justice. And that is, you will receive a maximum sentence of 10 to 25 on the aggravated robbery for the stealing of that bra. And I hope that in your last 25 years in prison that you remember that souvenir.
Get this scum out of here.
