Brent Girouex, a youth pastor from Iowa, is going to get away with probation for raping four teenage boys. His justification for raping these boys was to "rape away the gay" by praying for them while he forced intercourse on them. Eight other rape victims have come forward since.
He allegedly told the police that "when they ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind." This is absolutely disgusting.
And thanks to our judicial system, Brent Girouex won't have to spend one minute day in jail. Brent Girouex has been given 5 years probation because the judge has decided to suspend his original sentence of 17 years in jail.
We can't allow our judicial system to let this happen. We have to make it clear that rape is a serious felony. We need to let these boys and other rape victims know that their rapists won't get away with a mere probation.
Tell Judge Greg Steensland that probation is a pathetic sentence for these horrific crimes. Brent Girouex needs to be in jail for a long time.
