I'm writing to express my astonished disgust at state District Judge Sharen Wilson's indulgence and accommodation of the particularly vile Nathan Tatarko, found guilty of human trafficking and sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl. (See: "Man gets probation in sex assault," Thursday)

Exactly what level of culpability does a 14-year-old girl have to excuse the brutality and aggression of a 31-year-old man? Under precisely what norm of justice does it make sense to any but the most degenerate and bereft of moral fortitude and judgment to award a clean slate in 10 years to classic hunter/pedophiles?

Since the rapists and perpetrators have such sympathetic and generous help in being excused for having fallen victim to the irresistible wiles of the dangerous and lusty children of Fort Worth, it seems the Violence Against Women Act, which conservatives strongly fought against, means nothing in our laissez faire court of, ummm, justice? God help the women and girls in your family if rape should befall them.
