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.

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.
And then, apparently, the judge said, "Hey, good for you, Rapey Raperson. What a stand-up guy. You deserve a cookie! Two years."

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.

Two years.
