Iraq war vet gets 40 months on child abuse charge

Ok, this article really got to me, and I have to question, what's going on here????

  An Iraq war vet raped a 3-month-old baby girl, who now suffers brain damage and 17 broken bones, was looking at a life in prison for first-degree criminal sexual conduct and child abuse, now is only looking at 40 to 60 months in jail after pleading to a lesser charge, and he's planning on appealing even that decision???

  And this is all being allowed?  I'm sorry, there are just some cases that should NEVER be allowed to plea bargain or take lesser offenses for!  This child, this gorgeous 3-month-old baby girl had a wonderful life to look ahead too, and now that is all changed because some sicko raped her??

  I'm OUTRAGED!!!  If you aren't touched, if you aren't outraged by this, I can only ask what is going on to demoralize Society at this time?

Please, make some calls, let them know that this is a total outrage, and that we as a Society wont accept this!  This has to end sometime, but it never will if we don't take a stand!

Iraq war vet gets 40 months on child abuse charge

The 27-year-old former Army paratrooper pleaded guilty in May to attempted child abuse in a plea deal with prosecutors. He originally faced life in prison on charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and child abuse.
Authorities say Coleman attacked the baby Sept. 14 in her home in Blackman Township, about 65 miles west of Detroit. She suffered brain damage and 17 broken bones.
