He's just gonna get a slap on the wrist and then be released to do it again. Castrate him and then give him the death penalty.

Did I read that correctly? He can bond out for raping a young girl, but can't bond out for forgery? WTF?

She told me word for word she is lying about the whole thing and that she was just doing that for attention. 

Pls tell the people in charge, if this is true.  That crap happens way more than people think....
