Former Obetz officer pleads guilty to sex charge

A bad cop is actually being punished for hurting someone. He could get up to 5 years in jail. This is rare. I still have some problems with this story.
  • We don't even know if he will face hard time. No sentencing yet.
  • Any normal person would have been charged with rape and a heap of other things. So this scumbag is still getting special treatment.
  • I'm not sure what the normal bail is for rape in ohio. But $30k and 5 years in jail seems pretty light. 
  • That's even if he gets any time at all. We'll see when the time comes.
I'm glad they are actually doing something. But, too many cops have gotten away with much worse behavior. So far this still looks like a slap on the wrist.
