Prison for Failing to Register as Sex Offender - Updated

(Boise, Idaho) Child sex abuser Lisa Marie Rasho, 33, was convicted in 2010 and sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Sadly, Rasho is seemingly not too bright.
Rasho did not register when she moved to Traverse City, Mich., last year. She was arrested in Michigan.

In July, she pleaded guilty to a violation of the federal Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act Tuesday in U.S. District Court. She faced up to 10 years in prison.
However, demonstrating leniency comparable to Rasho's original trial court, the U.S. District Court sentenced her to 10 months in prison for failing to register as a sex offender.

Idaho Woman Gets Probation for Sex with Boy - Updated
[Previous 1/26/10 post]
(Meridian, Idaho) In July 2009 after pleading guilty to child sexual abuse, Lisa Marie Rasho was ordered into six month's of treatment under a retained jurisdiction program, called a rider, at a Department of Correction facility.

Yesterday, Rasho returned to court and was sentenced to 10 years of probation.
Fourth District Judge Deborah Bail decided Monday to place Rasho on felony probation, instead of sending her back to prison, based on the information gathered during the rider process.

Rasho, who pleaded guilty to a charge of sex abuse of a child under the age of 16 in June, has to register as a sex offender and continue to undergo treatment as part of her 10-year probation, according to court records.
Treatment and probation for a months-long sexual relationship with a 14-year-old is arguably on the lenient side of the punishment spectrum. A guy would likely receive a few years behind bars.
