In California, my home state, an Orange County Superior Court Judge named Derek G. Johnson has been admonished by the Commission on Judicial Performance for his Todd Akinesque remarks in a sexual assault case.
Back in 2008, he denied a 16-year prison term for Metin Gurel who had been convicted of rape, forcible oral copulation, domestic battery, stalking and making threats against his former live-in girlfriend. He also threatened to mutilate her face and vagina with a heated screwdriver.
Johnson sentenced him to 6 years.
Here’s how his minuscule speck of a brain worked, via the L.A. Times:
“I’m not a gynecologist, but I can tell you something. If someone doesn’t want to have sexual intercourse, the body shuts down. The body will not permit that to happen unless a lot of damage in inflicted, and we heard nothing about that in this case.
“That tells me that the victim in this case, although she wasn’t necessarily willing, she didn’t put up a fight.”
So clearly, this was another case of illegitimate rape, because he also said the rape was “technical,” and not “a real, live criminal case.”
That would make him an “illegitimate judge”. Someone should shut him down.
The commission, the one that admonished Judge Ignoramus, said it did not learn of the judge’s remarks until May 2012.
Johnson remains on the bench.
