What is it about the subject of sex that makes some judges get the crazy notion that donning a black robe and ascending the bench gives them a license to exceed their legal judicial and constitutional authority?
Twin Falls, Idaho Judge Randy Stoker, for example, thinks he has the authority to order defendants on probation in his court to either get married or remain completely celibate. The problem with that, however, is that there are absolutely no provisions in the Constitution or the laws in the United States of America which grant him that authority.
A 19-year-old pled “guilty” to the “crime” of engaging in consensual sex with his 14-year-old girlfriend. He was convicted of “statutory rape.” In other words, he was found “guilty” under a fiction invented by the legislature which labels him a “rapist.” He’s considered “guilty” of “rape” for doing what male and female human beings have been doing naturally and willingly since the origin of the species.
In fact, any believer in God and the Bible (Genesis chapter 9) who thinks that God created mankind would conclude that, as biologically mature individuals each with hormones raging in their veins, they were doing exactly what the Lord intended. After all, there is nothing whatsoever in the Holy Bible prohibiting “statutory rape.”
Never-mind that. Judge Stoker sentenced the defendant to 5 to 15 years in prison. Fortunately for the young man, all but one year of the sentence was suspended provided he completes a so-called therapeutic rider program. Unfortunately, however, after completion of the program he’ll be released on probation under the arbitrary condition that he not engage in sex with anyone unless he gets married.
Apparently, Judge Stoker thinks that the 19-year-old man likes sex too much so he had better either get hitched or stay celibate or go the slammer for 15 years. “If you're ever on probation with this court, a condition of that will be you will not have sexual relations with anyone except who you're married to, if you're married,” admonished the judge.
How many 19-year-old males do you know who aren’t obsessed with sex?
And Judge Stoker is sex crazy.
