Jeanine HowardAdvocates for sexual assault victims are furious with a Texas judge who said a raped 14-year-old "wasn't the victim she claimed to be," even after her attacker admitted to the crime.

Jeanine Howard, a Dallas County district judge, has drawn further criticism for her light sentence last week — a five-year probation — against the rapist in the 2011 assault.

The now 20-year-old Sir Young will be labeled a sex offender for life, but Howard did not issue standard sex offender restrictions, such as ordering him to refrain from pornography or undergoing sex offender treatment, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Howard removed herself from the case Friday, and a new judge has taken over.

Young admitted to raping the girl in a music room at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts on Oct. 4, 2011. He faced a maximum sentance of 20 years in prison.

TVNL Comment:  Hell, it's Texas, isn't it?  No surprise here.
