Judge gives child predator probation (Judge Watch)

A Missouri judge John Torrence recently gave a child molester, Jarred Elwood, an admitted child molester who molested a girl consecutively for 8 years, probation.

Jarred Elwood in Missouri plead guilty to molesting a girl for 8 years beginning when she was only 6 years old. Elwood plead guilty to charges of first-degree statutory sodomy, child molestation, and enticement of a child. - Dakota Voice

This is sickening, there is no place for child molesters in society, and I, along with many others, do not care if there is a mental problem causing adults to seek sexual pleasure from children. Anyone who takes the innocence away from a child does not deserve any pleasures of life. There is a great difference between all other crimes and child predatory crimes, and probation is simply NEVER acceptable.

Judges should be required to give child predators the MAXIMUM sentence and fine in EVERY situation, regardless the circumstances. It should be written into law, and there should be no leeway or way around it, there needs to be mandatory maximum sentences.

This greatly disturbs me, and hearing stories like this upset me beyond any point immaginable - this judge needs to be removed - below I have listed several contacts - please help get this judge removed -

  1. I saw this story about the judge who gave the child molester Jarred Elwood only 5 years of probation in Missouri, but I did not hear any investigation about the prosecutor in the case. Jim Kanatzar, a democratic operative that was appointed to the job is the one that dropped the ball here. This scumbag was originally charged with 14 counts and the prosecutor dismissed all but 3. That is the only reason the judge could give Elwood the probation. If the prosecutor did not dismiss the other counts, Elwood would not have been eligible to receive probation. I saw where you tried to interview the judge but did you try to talk to the prosecutor and have him tell you why he would dismiss 9 crimes to make the bad guy even eligible for probation? If the prosecutor thought it was bad, he could have re-filed the other 9 counts he dismissed AND HE DIDN'T. Why not?
