(CNN) -- A man is accused of breaking into an Anchorage, Alaska, home over the weekend, sexually assaulting an elderly woman, killing her and her husband, and sexually assaulting the couple's 2-year-old great-granddaughter before fleeing the scene in his boxer shorts.Jerry Andrew Active, 24, was arrested about a block from the home. He was charged with first and second degree murder, sexual assault and burglary, said Anchorage Police Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz. Active is being held on $1.5 million bond.So this "model citizen", all of 24, was in trouble a few times, maybe robbed a house or something, right?
Active had previously been convicted of sexual assault that involved an 11-year-old child, Markiewicz said.Excuse me?
Can someone explain to me how a 24-year old is on the streets after sexually assaulting an 11 year old? Exactly how many years did he serve for that assault and, I assume, he was convicted as an adult, which means the answer is "less than six."
To say that "the system broke down" or "he fell through the cracks" is to overlook the MASSIVE FAILURE of the entire criminal justice system in this case. Read the whole story at the link.
