Huh? Ohio B-ball coach videotaped boys in showers, sentence includes money for Newtown, CT

December 19, 2012

I mean, I get it. But what is this kind of thing doing in our system of justice? Theoretically, they could direct one’s fine to any cause. A judge could prop up any charity he or she wanted.

A former Ohio high school basketball coach who pleaded guilty to videotaping boys in a locker room shower for years has been sentenced to 15 years in prison — and must give $5,000 to the Connecticut community where a gunman killed 26 people.

Scott Studer pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to an eight-count indictment.

In addition to prison, Judge Frank Forchione (for-SHOH’-nee) in Canton ordered that Studer’s fine be directed to Newtown, Conn., scene of last week’s school shooting rampage. The judge didn’t specify the fund that should get the 46-year-old’s fine.

    A judge should fight any impulse to engage in mass hysteria.

    The fines should have been directed to counseling for this pervert’s victims.
