Graham Capill got 9 years for sexually assaulting and raping children over a sustained period of time, the CYPS caregiver who sexually assaulted two children in his care got something like two years for the assault and two years for a massive collection of pornography that included children as young as three.

The guy I mentioned in my last post got 12 years.

Now I think jail is pretty useless at doing anything but making people angrier, so I'm not really arguing for tougher sentances. But I can't think of any explanation for that difference that doesn't involve race and class.
