SCUM BAG’S FREE RIDE CUT SHORT: Public Outcry Lands Triple Rapist in Jail — Before He Got Away Without Jail Term

article-2508217-19718B7700000578-440_306x423A judge under fire for sparing a triple rapist prison time has agreed to reconsider the sentence.

Alabama Circuit Judge James Woodroof filed an order on Tuesday for 25-year-old Austin Smith Clem to be resentenced.

Clem was convicted this month of raping a teenage girl three times, but the judge suspended his 40-year prison sentence in favor of a community corrections program that allowed him to skip incarceration.

The decision sparked a national outcry, with the victim Courtney Andrews saying she was ‘livid’ and ‘baffled’.

Andrews, now 20, told MSNBC she was grateful her attacker would be resentenced, but was not hopeful. 

The judge was a childhood friend of the perpetrator’s attorney, Dan Totten.

‘It’s hard for me to put a lot of hope in it, because I don’t want to be let down again. I thought he was going to get prison time before and he didn’t,’ Andrews said.

A jury in September convicted Clem on three counts of rape in a series of sexual assaults on his neighbor and one-time family friend.

Andrews testified that Clem sexually abused her at age 13 and then again when she was 14 and 18.
