Fox and Friends-E.D. Hill's Blog on OHIO JUDGE
Rehabilitation or Revenge?
Wow, what a show. You were burning up our e-mail with your comments regarding the segment with Terry Sherman, the attorney for Andrew Selva.
In January 2004, Selva was indicted on a series of rapes involving oral and anal sex with two boys ages 5 and 12. Selva had helped the boys' families come to America from Asia. In a plea deal, Selva was allowed to plead guilty to two counts of sexual battery. Ohio Judge John Connor labeled Selva a sexual predator — the most severe of the sexual offender categories.
"Mr. Selva does meet the criteria of a sexual predator," said Judge Connor. Why then did the judge bypass jail and give Selva house arrest? According to the judge, "He's (Selva) got a disease like I've got a disease. I don't know what prison would have helped, except for revenge and revenge is not in the sentencing guidelines." I’m not sure what disease the judge was referring to regarding himself, but he has been convicted twice for DUI and arrested for DUI up to eight times.
Selva’s attorney, Terry Sherman, joined us on "FOX & Friends" this morning. Sherman claims Selva can be rehabilitated and cited expert testimony. He continued to point out that Selva pleaded guilty to sexual battery, but would not deny that Selva had raped these young boys in the worst possible ways. Hundreds of viewers e-mailed in the next few minutes. Here is a bit of what you had to say: E.D. Hill’s Blog from Fox and Friends on Ohio Judge
