Portland Antifa Leader Busted for Improper Sexual Contact with Underage Teens – Given Probation

Elder Patriot – WTF is going on with liberal officials – elected and appointed – refusal to punish Antifa criminals?  

Just over a month ago Portland mayor Ted Wheeler refused to order police to engage Antifa when they essentially took over the streets in downtown.

Now this:

For the second time in recent weeks, Antifa boss Micah Isaiah Rhodes was in court on charges of having sexual contact with underage teens.

And, for the second time Multnomah County Circuit Judge Jerry Hodson refused to sentence the sexual predator to prison.  Hodson, instead chose to impose five years probation on Rhodes.

Under Oregon law it’s a crime for an adult to have sexual contact with a minor if there are three or more years in age difference between the two.

Aimee Green writing for The Oregonian reported:

In March, Rhodes pleaded guilty to two counts of felony second-degree sexual abuse for at least twice having sexual contact with a 17-year-old boy. Investigators say Rhodes met the boy on a gay dating app, and the contact happened in Gresham and Troutdale.

Days earlier, a Washington County jury had found Rhodes guilty of second-degree sexual abuse of a 17-year-old girl. A defense memo said the contact happened after the girl went to watch a movie with Rhodes at his mother’s house.

Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Bumjoon Park said his office often seeks probation for defendants found guilty of the same crimes as Rhodes, but he argued that Rhodes should go to prison for about two years.

He cited Rhodes’ history of sexually victimizing children, his unwillingness to follow rules and his inability to change even after attending sex offender treatment programs three times.

Park said Rhodes as a teenager had been convicted in the youth court system of first-degree sodomy and sexual abuse. When Rhodes was about 14, he sexually abused a 9-year-old boy and when he was 15, he sexually abused three boys, Park said.

Rhodes also has a concerning track record of ignoring rules by “repeatedly sexually acting out” with his peers when he was told not to and later having contact with minors when he was forbidden from doing so by his probation, the prosecutor said.

The judge, who has not yet scheduled an appointment to have his head removed from his ass justified putting more children at risk because he “believes” Rhodes is “trying.”
