New York judge faces backlash after sparing prison for rapist of 14-year-old

A judge in NY has sparked outrage after declining to incarcerate a former school bus driver who raped a 14-year-old girl. Judge James McClusky sentenced Shane Piche to 10 years probation after the 25-year-old pleaded guilty to third-degree rape. Piche has also been ordered to register as a level one sex offender. A petition calling for McClusky to be removed has received almost 50,000 signatures.
