In Bay County, Prosecutor Tracy Smith, explaining why she decided not to seek jail time said If I thought she was going to be a threat I would not have made that plea,
However, the minor whom Kemp had an affair with was in a narcotics addiction treatment program. Kemp had given the youth drugs while he was in the program thereby derailing any hope the minor had of trying to straighten out his young life in the near future. Despite this fact, Smith felt Kemp is no threat. Smith displays the standard feminist mentality that a boy's future doesn't matter. His education is deemed insignificant. He is a toy for adult women. This type of mentality is one of the reasons why boys have fallen well behind girls in education.
Additionally, both Okaloosa and Bay County claimed the boy refused to cooperate with the State Attorney's Office. Too frequently, State Attorney Offices claim "a boy will not cooperate" yet convince a girl to testify against a man. A disparity of effort? A disparity of concern?
Jason Kemp, Michelle Kemps ex-husband, called her sentence completely unbelievable. Jason Kemp, who now lives in Des Moines, Iowa, with the couples children, said his wife's crimes led to their divorce, and questioned whether there is a double standard for women who commit sex crimes. I know if I did what she did I would be in jail right now, Jason Kemp said. I think its unbelievable. Completely unbelievable.
What makes the judicial double standard more appalling is the known fact, girls mature faster than boys. A 15 year old girl is more mature than a 15 year old boy. Therefore, boys are less mentally prepared for sexual relationships than girls. This makes it easier for adult women to manipulate boys like puppets during sexual relationships - yet it is women who routinely serve no time for having sex with minors while men serve months to years in jail.
The American judicial system appears to be following sentencing guidelines written by feminist organizations. For example, a 'National Institute of Corrections'(NIC) document titled "Sentencing Women Offenders: A Training Curriculum for Judges" was written by the National Association of Women Judges. This document advocates a two tiered sentencing system, one for men and one for women. Another NIC document titled "Women and the Criminal Justice System: Gender Matters" also supports the idea of a two tiered sentencing system. This document was written by a Women's Studies professor. Several other documents exist. Although none of them are law they do appear to influence judicial sentencing.
This arrangement is similar to the education documents issued by the feminist group "The Women's Law Center". These documents are not law, yet most school districts adhere to them. This is why boys aged 4 to 10 are suspended for alleged sexual harassment in schools.
INDIVIDUALS SHOULD BE JUDGED AND SENTENCED SOLELY ON THE BASIS OF THEIR ACTIONS - NOT THEIR GENDER. Until feminism is removed from the American judicial system, and from society in general, this cannot happen.
