"Not only was there no sentence reduction due to Mr Rhoades' plea (after all, he saved the court a lot of time and money; and let's face it, it was one person's word against the other, which could have gone either way with a jury), but Judge Harris additionally placed Mr Rhoades on lifetime parole!" http://www.wcfcourier.com/articles/2009/05/02...
I found this punishment to FAR out weigh the crime. This is actually, something the 8th Ammendment doesn’t allow. Let’s see: consenual sex…one time contact, NO INJURY, NO INTENDED INJURY, 25 YEARS, Register as a sex offender, LIFETIME PROBATION! WOW, the Supreme Court ruled, that “the Constitution permits sentences to be based on a variety of non-retributive (crime-preventive) goals” in the 8th Amendment. I would say that ths is definitely retributive for an HIV guy who made a mistake. No one else came forth to show that this was an on-going pattern for the offender. People should be writing Judge Harris, State of Iowa District Court, 315 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, IA 50703 to tell him about this injustice!
