We are trying to raise awareness about current laws in Michigan. As it stands, the current law for criminal sexual conduct on a child under the age of thirteen is zero to seventeen months in county jail when the molester confesses.
My Niece was molested by Manuel Antonio Rodriguez, he was only sentenced to eight months in the local county jail, of those eight months, he served around six of them, he was let out early for "good behavior".
The current law for child abuse and neglect varies, though none of it seems to fit the crime. If you murder a child from abuse, you can get no less than eight years, no more than twelve. For serious bodily injury, you can get no less than four and no more than eight years in JAIL. For any other injury it's six to eighteen months.
Amos Leroy Kline admitted twisting his six week old sons arm and leg until they broke. Because he admitted his guilt, and took anger management classes, he was sentenced to nine months, and he didn't even go to jail, he went to the probation center. HE CAN LEAVE everyday, and go to work. He can still feel all the goodness of life, did he leave that option for the baby?
Calista Springer died in a house fire last year because her parents Marsha and Anthony Springer tied her to a bed and dead bolted her into her room. She cried out for help and no one would listen. DCFS workers looked the other way when she begged them to help her. How can this be. Follow us on our mission to make sure Calista is given the justice she deserves.
How can we say these children were given justice?

What we are now trying to do is make all States realize that not all punishments fit the crime. Any crime is wrong, but those forced upson a child are intolerable. We are their voices, and THEY WILL BE HEARD.
WE must make ANY AND EVERY crime against a child have harsher punishments.
As my team and I researched all laws for this, I was shocked to learn that Michigan, although terrible with the punishment, is not the worst one out there.
Arkansas-You can walk away with nothing. NO TIME SERVED, NO FINE, NO NOTHING! HOW CAN THIS BE?
Connecticut-Most of the time no punishment and they now have lawyers arguing for them so they do not have to register as a sex offender. JUST SO YOU KNOW THEY ARE TRYING TO PASS A LAW IN THIS STATE SO OFFENDERS NEVER HAVE TO REGISTER BECAUSE IT IS A VIOLATION OF THEIR RIGHTS AND THEY ARE DOUBLY PUNISHED.
Delaware-60 DAYS IN JAIL AND YOU HAVE TO WEAR A T-SHIRT THAT SAYS I AM A SEX OFFENDER AND STAND ON A CORNER. That fits the crime huh folks.
Minnesota-You get more time for beating your dog then you do for touching a child. 6 months for the child 2 years for the dog
North Carolina-Their sentence for a non penetration is 60 days
Wisconsin-Can be plead down to a misdemeanor no time served and a 500 dollar fine.
States that Happen to be tougher
Alabama-20 years in prison, 10 years house arrest.
Arizona-17 to life.
Arkansas-no less than 10 no more than 17 even if it is your first conviction.
California- Trying to pass Jessicas Law, look it up and research it, a wonderful law that should be passed.
Colorado-TRYING TO PASS THE DEATH PENALTY FOR ALL SEXUAL ASSULT UNDER THE AGE OF 12 EVEN IF IT IS YOUR FIRST CONVICTION!
Yet in my state, a state that I thought would do more for my family
THIS MAN WALKS FREE EVERYDAY. HE CAN COME AND GO AS HE CHOOSES, HE CAN
FIND YET ANOTHER SINGLE MOTHER AND DESTROY THAT FAMILY AS HE DID OURS.
Please do not let this go. Brianna is a wonderful little girl and she had
