Kumbaya Kern Strikes Again

When we last checked in with Judge Leila Kern, she was handing out probation--ZERO jail time--for a guy who allowed a nine-year-old girl to be repeatedly raped in the same room with him while he was hooking up with the mom. She could have sentenced this perv to 30 months for child endangerment. He got nada.

Now, Kumbaya Kerns is back. Prosecutors want her to impose the mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years on two dirtbags who broke into a 76-year-old woman's home, held her hostage and repeatedly assaulted her. Instead, she's planning to give them...NO JAIL TIME. Probation for the crime of home invasion (once again, the legislature put a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years for this crime.) They would instead get 8-10 years for other violent crimes they've committed.

What do you have to do in Salem, MA to get your criminal assets tossed in jail where they belong?
