Biden’s Supreme Court Pick Says Pedophiles Should Get Weaker Sentences


Republican lawmakers are blasting Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for being too soft on charges involving pedophilia, such as child pornography. During Biden’s Supreme Court Justice nominee’s confirmation hearing on Wednesday afternoon, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina blasted Biden’s choice for being weak on punishing pedophiles with spreading child pornography.

Senator Graham chastised Jackson for earlier advocating that pedophiles be subjected to extensive supervision as a judge. Sen. Graham quickly retorted that they don’t require considerable supervision, but rather should be imprisoned.

Graham is entirely correct in advocating that anyone who distributes child pornography should be sentenced to prison rather than receiving a slap on the wrist. Child pornography should be punished with a life sentence since the pain that children experience after becoming victims lasts a lifetime, not just a few years.

Senators Graham and Hawley, in addition to Senator Graham, lambasted Jackson’s leniency on pedophilia charges.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) attacked Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s leniency toward sex offenders on Wednesday.

In a lengthy thread, Hawley, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, argued that Jackson’s record as a policymaker and judge demonstrates a alarming trend of letting sex criminals off the hook. Reduced punishments for child pornographers are one example, as is the topic of whether sex offenders should be obliged to register with publicly available registries.
