A South American man gets 4 years for grabbing a woman's bum. The female judge decided to take a tough stance in order to 'fight sexist behaviour'. I'm guessing she was probably provoked by the fact that at the time of arrest the victim was offered the opportunity to slap the perp rather than press charges. The way I see it, the main effect of this sentence will be to discourage women and police from pressing charges against bum-gropers and increase the likelihood of onsite slap-sentencing. But I have to say, 4 years should give any ass-pincher some pause. At least the guy got off light compared to this Sudanese perv.
