As I write this article, there are already 262 sexual predators who have seen their sentences reduced thanks to the law of only yes is yes of Irene Montero y Pedro Sanchez, but at the rate at which that figure is rising, surely when it is published it will already be 275 or more. The reductions are ranging from one year in cases in which they had been convicted of a single violation, to more than three years of sentence reduction for multiple rapists sentenced to 18 or 20 years. For this reason there are already more than 30 rapists who have been released. One of the latest has been a repeat rapist from Lleida who had been convicted of abusing 19 women, including several minors, who committed his first sexual assault at the age of 14 and since then has not stopped attacking women every time he He enjoyed the least prison permit.
The Montero law has reduced the sentence of the recidivist rapist from Lleida by six years and yesterday he was released. How long will it take to attack another girl? Will he just rape her or will he kill her too? Unfortunately, we won’t have to wait long for these answers. Scientific studies that try to calculate the rate of recidivism in sexual crimes try to convince us that this figure is low, around 20%, which is quite inconsistent with the perception that society has. The reality is that this rate of recidivism is calculated on the basis of firm convictions and a large part of the sexual crimes committed by repeat offenders are not known, because they correspond to abuses that either go unreported or are not discovered at the outset. aggressor.
Also, we all know that there are three kinds of lies: lies, big lies, and…statistics. The recidivism rate is calculated on the group of rapists, which includes both the minor who once abused a friend and has undergone reintegration therapy, as well as the sexual predator who has tried to rape every time he has had the opportunity. Scientific evidence shows that, when the risk factors, both sociological and psychological or psychiatric, are correctly evaluated, and the reports from prison technicians classify a profile as “high risk”, as is the case with the recidivist rapist from Lérida released yesterday , the possibility that the recidivism noticed by prison technicians will finally be confirmed is greater than 60%, according to the Group for Advanced Studies in Violence GEAV of the University of Barcelona.
When the first reductions in sentences began to take place and Irene Montero accused the judges of prevaricating by breaking her law due to machismo, despite the fact that the majority of judges are young women, we all thought that these reductions were an undesired consequence of the minister’s illiteracy and your team. But very soon we began to learn that they had previously been warned by all the legal bodies consulted, with which ignorance no longer justified the error and we had to start thinking perhaps about childish arrogance, as Manuela Carmena said. But immediately we heard statements from the extreme left that demanded that the debate be diverted from the criminal field and rejected the increase in punitivismlike those of the ex podemita Clara Serra. In this sense, the Secretary of State for Equality, angela rodriguez Pampublicly downplayed the length of sentences for rapists, laughing at the releases.
Therefore, we must confirm that the reductions in sentences and releases are a desired effect of the Law on only yes is yes by Irene Montero and Pedro Sánchez and this is the only reason why they refuse to correct it. While the number of rapists benefited and released increases every day, we must now ask ourselves this question: What will Irene Montero say when one of her released prisoners rapes or murders a woman or a minor?
