Child molesters in Virginia don’t garner much sympathy from state judges. Maximum sentences are typical, and multiple offenders barely ever see the light of day when caught..
In one example, Donald Hausen, 35, was charged with aggravated sexual battery, manufacturing child pornography, distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Judge Herman Whisenant Jr. sentenced Hausen to 66 years in prison, and he will forever be registered as a violent sex-offender.
Seems reasonable, doesn’t it? If you’re despicable enough to do those things you will pay the price.
Unless you’re a Virginia State Trooper, that is.
In yet another example of cops receiving special treatment rather than being held to a higher standard, the very same judge accepted a plea deal from Trooper Christopher Allen Carson, 30, that will have him serving just thirty days in jail. On his release Carson will somehow be exempt from Virginia’s sex offender registry laws. The people in his neighborhood will never get to know the monster that lives down the block.
Carson was originally charged with forcible sodomy on a minor, aggressive sexual battery and indecent liberties with a child after orally forcing himself on a sleeping 7th grade boy.
Under the plea deal the charges were lowered to a felony count of criminal solicitation, a count of contributing to delinquency of a minor and one count of exposing his penis to a child. Carson also pleaded guilty to two counts of loaning pornographic videos to a child.
Contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Apparently if you’re orally raped by a Virginia State Trooper you’re the delinquent.
The plea deal happened the day Carson was set to go to trial. Judge Whisenant recommended nine years in prison, with all but 30 days suspended, and two years of probation. As an added bonus for being a disgusting human being on the State’s payroll Carson the exemption from registering as a sex-offender was added.
Plea bargains are common, and deals are made all the time, but this miscreant was ready to go to trial, knew he was going to lose and most likely spend thirty years or more in solitary confinement, since cops and molesters are two of the biggest targets in prison, so he made a deal.
A deal is one thing, but thirty days? Under what logic does not making this scumbag register as a sex-offender aid the public interest?
Yet another travesty of justice where a cop is considered above the law.
