To The Editor,

It was written in the local paper, reported by the A.P., that a judge in Steubenville, Ohio, has agreed to lower the requirements for registering as a sex offender. Just over a year ago, a local football player was found guilty of raping a defenseless 16-year-old girl.

In my opinion, he has lowered the requirements to be a judge. Surely this judge is appointed and not elected? This is what happens when the justice system gets in the wrong hands.

The people in his jurisdiction need to demand that he step down.
