John A. Connor, Ohio Pleas Judge, Columbus, Ohio, could have given Andrew Selva 10 years in prison for multiple instances of child rape of two boys ages 5 and 12. Ten years would not be justice served in our opinion. Connor did not sentence Selva to any jail time, stating that "he (Selva) has a disease like I do," referring to his own alcoholism. Connor was arrested eight times for driving under the influence of alcohol and was convicted of DUI three times. A man Connor sentenced to a mere 9 months for DUI was released, violated his parole, got drunk and killed a 19 year old woman and a 20 year old man.
How many other miscarriages of justice have there been under "Judge" Connor? Should an alcoholic, drunk-driving, let-the-rapists & killers-walk person be serving on the bench? Injustice? You decide. Let's hope the people of Franklin County, Ohio decide correctly and work to have this person removed from the court. Cathy Harper Lee of the Justice League of Ohio is working the case but there is nothing on their web site about it and no contact information. Hopefully the people of Franklin County can contact her to learn how they can sign a petition or take other action to support removal of this disgrace to the concept of serving the common good with justice for all.

Urgent Action Needed!
Use the "Write Congress" button on the left above to email the President, your senators & representative urging them to
enact legislation that addresses judicial leniency, incompetence, and
activism. Just as important, encourage legislators to address the
epidemic of sex crimes with federal laws to protect women and children
nationwide. The process of enacting Jessica's Law 50 times, once in each
state, is absurd. Read about
the Jessica Lunsford Act passed in Florida that provides strict
sentencing for child sex offenders and check
Jessica's Law for a national report card where you can see what your
state is doing and send an email to your governor if necessary. You
