Rape Victim Furious Over Expected Light Sentence

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A Brooklyn woman, raped as a teen, was speaking out against the light sentence given to her rapist.

The woman, identified by her first name only, said she was being violated again because her attacker was escaping jail time.

Tony Simmons, a juvenile court counselor, pleaded guilty to raping Ashley and sexually assaulting two other teenage girls, but he was only expected to receive 10 years probation.

Ashley called that an outrageous injustice.  “He must have known somebody to get this special deal just for Tony Simmons, just for this disgusting human being he got this special plea deal,” she said.

CBS 2HD attempted to reach the judge who approved the sentence but our phone call was not returned.

Sources said the Manhattan DA was exploring his legal options prior to Monday’s formal sentencing.

    “CBS 2HD attempted to reach the judge who approved the sentence but our phone call was not returned.” Now THERE’S some hard hitting research into this so-called story. And they wonder why print media is losing it’s value……

  2. Roy says:

    Outragious,he used his position of authority to commit these crimes,and should have been punished accordingly,greta job by the District Attorneys Office,and a Better job by the Court,who accepted the plea bargain……..

    HEY POLANSKI come to NY they’ll give you probation, just make NY your home of record not California.

  4. Michael says:

    This will not encourage rape victims to come forward to make sure “he never does to another girl.” Apparently, rape is not a “jailable” offense in NY.

    Simmons, 42, was in charge of supervising the three victims while they appeared in Manhattan Family Court.

    He raped one 15-year-old while she waited in the courthouse basement for her case to be called. The victim wound up getting 12 months in prison for filing a false police report.

    @ Joe..Thank you for requesting Al Sharpton, unfortunately he’s unavailable at the moment. He’s indulging in a much needed hair appointment. Please try your call again later.

    “Sources said the Manhattan DA was exploring his legal options prior to Monday’s formal sentencing.”

    Vance is a big lib. Don’t count on him doing anything to expose perversion in the NYC court system. And where’s your “100 Black Cops”? SILENT? They only get busy when Sharpton says “jump!”

    Apparently this perv used his position of authority to rape this young girl. During the ordeal he probably was telling her that it’s going to be alright and she will not go “to jail”. Well guess what, he needs to go to jail where he can be taking advantage of by men bigger and stronger than he. If this “so called Judge” did her job correctly she would have thrown him there. Perhaps if her daughter, mother or grandmother would’ve endured such violation them should would have seen the bigger picture. ONCE A RAPIST, ALWAYS A RAPIST. HE IS FREE TO REPEAT HIS DISGUSTING BEHAVIOR TO SOME OTHER UNFORTUNATE, VULNERABLE FEMALE. HOPEFULLY IT’S ME…..I WILL CUT OFF HIS WEAPON OF CHOICE …AND THEN MAIL IT TO THE JUDGE IN QUESTION.

    Paste this perp’s photo all over NYC shame, Him!!
    Protest with the Ladies ,next week.

    Bob, why do you say “sounds like statutory rape”. Where in the article does it say it was statutory????? It says RAPE. Which in case you don’t understand, that means a woman was forced, against her will to have sex. If it was statuatory, then it would have been written, jerk.

  11. Bob says:

    Sounds like a story about a guy that abused his position of trust and took advantage of girls that were already in legal trouble and in the court system. Probably 15,16,17 going on 30, HOWEVER, what he did was very wrong. This may be a case of statutory rape, and some of those cases are far from actual rape…but the fact that he abused his position of trust should require a jail sentence.

    1. saywhat says:

      Bob…? Did I read correctly that you think one is lesser than the other?
      Naah…couldn’t be. No one is that ….”obtuse”…right?

  12. Jess J. says:

    Seriously, that’s your comment, Paul? Dont comment unless its useful. Its a terrible story. This is one of the reasons woman sometimes dont feel like reporting rape because they dont feel the law will find in their favor. Unfortunately with statute of limitations on rape cases, this is what happens. Just awful.

    1. Bob says:

      Sounds a little more like a story about statutory rape than a case of a violent rape assault, drug and rape etc. Was she 17 and he abused his position? Horrible reporting.
