    Judge Sorry For Crude Remark About Rape Victim
    POSTED: 9:31 a.m. EST January 30, 2004


    SANFORD, Fla. -- A Florida judge apologized to a rape victim for suggesting she wasn't attractive enough to be raped.

    He has also taken himself off the case. A judge in Florida said, "Why would he want to rape her? She doesn't look like a day at the beach," after looking at a photo of the beaten and bruised victim as attorneys were discussing a plea agreement. Should this judge be fired? YesNo


    Sanford Circuit Judge Gene Stephenson said he hopes the woman accepts his apology.

    Stephenson says he doesn't remember making the comment. But court transcripts showed he said, "Why would he want to rape her? She doesn't look like a day at the beach."

    Stephenson made the remark after looking at a photo of the beaten and bruised victim as attorneys were discussing a plea agreement for the 26-year-old suspect, who is charged with raping, beating, kidnapping and robbing the 57-year-old woman.

    The woman says she found the comment "appalling" and that she plans to file a complaint with the state Judicial Qualifications Commission.

      i bet he was just cracking a joke because she was so beat up in the picture. insensitive....very. And she is probably thinking he is saying she is unattractive. You never get the whole story.

      my opinion.

      i think he should be reprimanded, maybe loose some pay. unless he has done stupid things in the past. if he is know for things like this than yeah can his azz.
      There are 2 types of people in the world...
      Really stupid people who think they are smart
      and
      Really smart people who think they are smart.

        OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

        Which one you may ask?

        Well you decide.....
        "She also has a very soft skin. The only trouble with snake women is they copulate with horses, which makes them strange to me. She say's she doesn't. That's why I call her "Doesn't Like Horses". But, of course, she's lying."

          His apologies are meaningless. He apologized only to take a bit of heat off himself. What happens next is a lawsuit that will hurt him where it hurts rich people the most. In the pocketbook.

          Money is the most valuable thing to them.

            No judge has the right to express their personal views on any case!! He is suppose to be impartial to either side. This is very rude and needs to be seriously addressed.
