Ex-Patriots player gets 2-year sentence for rape:
A former NFL lineman has been sentenced to two years in jail after pleading guilty to raping a 15-year-old who attended the high school where he was a football coach.And then, apparently, the judge said, "Hey, good for you, Rapey Raperson. What a stand-up guy. You deserve a cookie! Two years."
Daniel Villa was sentenced Wednesday in Norfolk Superior Court to seven years of probation, banned from working with children under 16 and ordered to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to statutory rape and enticing a minor.
He told the judge he was "thirsty for a clear conscience."
His lawyer said he pleaded guilty to avoid further pain to the victim and her family.
Two years. For rape. It's even (for a change) right there in the actual headline and everything. Ex-Patriots player gets 2-year sentence for rape. Which I daresay suggests that even the AP or Yahoo News or whoever wrote that headline is shocked by that fuckery.
And here's the thing that's really getting to me:
Prosecutors say Villa sent the girl thousands of text messages.Which means he didn't just rape her; he stalked her, too.
