Maine Woman Gets No Jail for Child Sex Conviction - Update

(Bridgeport, Connecticut) For crossing state lines to engage in repeated sex with a 14-year-old boy, 22-year-old Cassandra Grant has been sentenced to no jail.
"These laws are on the books to protect children and these types of incidents can have a negative effect on them as they get older," Judge Robert Devlin chastised Cassandra Grant as she stood beside her lawyer in Superior Court.

"But I'm confident this sentence is the appropriate one to impose," he added.

On the conviction of risk of injury to a minor, the judge sentenced Grant to a five-year suspended term followed by 10 years probation. He also ordered her to register as a sex offender and to make a $200 donation to the Center for Children and Families.
Given the wanton nature of Grant's behavior, a token stint behind bars would seem appropriate.
