Blogosaurus on Bill Wininger’s Recent Arrest

Blogosaurus captures posts from around the web of interest to Recovering Fundamentalists.

The news that Bill Wininger has been arrested and actually spent a night in jail has been good to hear. Sadly, readers should understand that all the charges are misdemeanors. Wininger is a sexual predator who should be going to prison for the rest of his life. But even though each of the four charges carries a maximum 1 year sentence, the likelihood is that he will serve little jail time. A first-time, non-violent offender against an adult victim may even get off on probation. I don’t like the lenient way the system works with sexual offenders, but it is cheering to know that civil court offers hope of Wininger at least having to pay restitution to some of his victims. I am hoping that the criminal charges will give his victims the courage and ability to go to civil court against him.
