Reply To: CA judge “Turner-ed” by lying victim’s statement, fears recall


I’m sorry but it’s the judicial system that needs an overhaul and not just the victims and perpetrators. Our justice system has gone to the other extreme- where judges take the victim’s testimony and that’s how they render their sentences. The facts and the laws governing the case should be the determinant and not the victim’s testimony. Victims almost always will want to obliterate their perpetrators but where is the law and common sense? If our system keeps running on victim’s testimonies, everyone going to court will have to look at dozens of years of incarceration and never getting off that darn “registry”
