Do you think a $7500 fine is ample punishment for a crime like this?
No. He is a POLICE OFFICER he damn well knew what he was doing was WRONG and did it anyway. He KNEW the consequences of his action but thought he could get away with it. Do you think the outcome would've been different were he not a police officer?
Yes, I think they are taking into consideration that he MAY be fired and feel sorry for him. Why he hasn't been fired already is beyond me.Or if the incident had taken place at somewhere other than a nightclub?
I actually think this is a mitigating factor they were in a nightclub she was in a dress she was asking for it right?(These are not my feelings at all but I am betting this is what people were thinking).
ETA cause I am even more cranky now after reading this bit
Judge Bruce Goetze ordered Sleigh to pay the $7500 fine to his victim, who is the daughter of a serving police officer, to help compensate her for her trauma.
Are the judges so stupid that they think money fixes fecking everything. No amount of money helps fix the feeling of being violated.
