A man who admitted to raping a 12-year-old girl has been handed a suspended sentence.

Martin Joseph Blake was sentenced at Montana’s Valley County District Court to 30 years in prison.  The 40-year-old was instead ordered to spend 60 days in jail, with credit for the 17 days he had already served and to register as a sex offender.

Blake admitted he raped the child once, but two other rape charges were dismissed as part of his plea deal, which requested a 100-year sentence, with 75 years suspended.

The agreement would have seen Blake serve 25 years however sentencing Judge John C. McKeon did not follow recommendations.

He cited the support Blake received from family, friends, his church and employer as reasons for his leniency.

Valley County Attorney Dylan Jensen expressed his dismay at the sentencing.

“I was shocked and disappointed, but I respect the judge’s decision,” he told the Glasgow Courier.


Steve Says…

Out-Fucking-Rageous – ALL proven kiddy fiddlers must be chemically castrated or tattooed with PERVERT across their forehead and released to let nature take its course.

These pervert predators cannot be allowed to pursue their perverted ways and must be stopped.
