TAFT ISSUES STATEMENT ON CONNOR SENTENCE

COLUMBUS (March 15, 2006) - Governor Bob Taft today issued the following statement regarding Judge Connor's sentence in the Selva child rape case:

"This is a serious and disturbing crime, and Judge Connor's sentence is flat-out wrong.

"Protecting our children must be our highest priority. Judge Connor's decision is unfair to victims and sends the wrong message to would-be criminals.

"The state legislature has the authority to remove sitting judges. The sentence is an obvious miscarriage of justice, and the legislature should act immediately."
