The act was highly inappropriate but hardly a serious crime. The woman suffered no injury. We need to focus on locating those who committed major criminal acts causing serious injury to others who should be sent to prison.

Minor crimes lead to MAJOR crimes. Putting him in the system will possibly deter him from going further next time. Next time, he might rape someone. He may not have caused her physical injury, but the emotional injuries, I’m sure are there.
