In Washington, one lawyer received a three year suspension for "five gross misdemeanors, which included two counts of indecent exposure (RCW 9A.88.010(1)), one count of stalking (RCW 9A.46.110), and two counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes (RCW 9.68A.090)" - all counts regarding his stalking of 9-13 year old girls in order to expose himself to them and masturbate in front of them.

I think storing child porn should be a crime. I also understand and accept the theory about "enabling" those who produce this stuff for a willing audience. But am I the only one who thinks that in many of these cases that are popping up around the country the punishments are grossly disproportionate for the pathetic people who feel compelled to watch this stuff (in this case only 5 times), but take no further action? When we see what else it takes to get a 7-year federal sentence, there is something about the sentencing guidelines that needs another look in these cases.
