Courtney Havlik thinks so. Her sister's ex-fiance is about to be released after spending 18 months in custody for arranging a meeting on Naperville's Riverwalk with someone he believed to be an underage girl. Does the time fit the crime?
DuPage County authorities think so. In a story published in Sunday's Sun, State's Attorney Joe Birkett adamantly insists his office is tough on sex offenders. He says the Legislature needs to pass tougher mandatory-sentencing laws.
Do you agree with Havlik that tougher sentences are needed? If so, who do think is most responsible for letting sex offenders off easy: prosecutors, judges, law enforcement or lawmakers?
