Judge Wants Sexual Assault Defendant To Pay - In A Very Strange Way

Across America, more and more people are becoming informed about the horrific sexual assault figures in the country’s major cities. Specifically, there is growing outrage in America’s legal system when judges adopt a ‘soft’ approach to sex offenders, particularly pedophiles and child molesters. One such incident has occurred in Pennsylvania and the conduct of an Allegheny County Judge has been placed under the spotlight after he suggested that a man should only be fined $1 for every time he groped a 15-year-old girl.

The judge in question, Common Pleas Senior Judge Lester G. Nauhaus, heard the perpetrator, an anonymous man under 18 years old, attempt to appeal a fine of $300 that he received for the harassment and indecent assault of a 15-year-old girl, who alleged that he touched her sexually and without consent. The culprit’s attorney, Dawn Walters, informed the court that her client was remorseful over the incident but did not have enough money to pay the fine. As a result, the Assistant District Attorney, Jeff Tisak, informed the court that his client would be pursuing a sentence of 90 days’ probation and no contact with the victim.

In a disturbing turn of events, Judge Nauhaus responded by saying: “Fine…I’m going to give him a 90-day postponement. He has to do community service. And he has to pay a $3 fine. How many times did he touch?” In response to the judge’s query, the unnamed victim flippantly responded by saying “I’m going to say about six times, maybe” leading to Judge Nauhaus to affirm that the victim had to pay "A $6 fine." Mr. Tisak was understandably outraged and objected to the immoral judge’s reasoning that groping a child was punishable with a $1 fine, saying: “It is just highly inappropriate to tell a young girl that inappropriate touching is worth a dollar a time.” After a brief exchange, to the shock and frustration of Mr. Tisak, Judge Nauhaus waived the victim’s fine entirely.

At another point in the trial, Judge Nauhaus implicitly justified the perpetrator’s actions’ by comparing him to President Donald Trump’s infamous brag of grabbing a female “By the pu**y”, saying “Listen, I can name at least one adult that thinks that’s okay…He’s an important guy.” As a result of his actions in court, Judge Nauhaus has been reported for encouraging and enabling a legal culture that overlooks sexual assault with Allegheny County District Attorney, Stephen A. Zappala Jr., saying Judge Nauhaus’ “conduct has no place in our [judicial] system and the District Attorney will bring it to the attention of the appropriate persons and, if necessary, the Judicial Conduct Board."
