NM judge believes daily prison rape is a fit punishment for nearly all defendants

New Mexico Second Circuit Court Judge Christina Argyres told an 18-year-old first time offender who'd pleaded guilty to burglary that she would grant him probation because if he went to prison he'd be "someone's bitch" and be "raped every day."

It was nice of the judge to grant leniency to the young man. But she apparently believes that being raped every day is a just punishment for nearly everyone else she sentences to time.

“Do you know what would happen…to a young a dumb person in prison? Do you have any idea what would happen to you? You would probably be raped every day, for one. And I hate to sound like that, you know – rude, but that’s exactly what would happen to you.”

Judge Argyres then addressed the state, explaining that it would not be right to put the young man in prison just yet, especially since he was a first time offender:

“Again, he’s going to be somebody’s – I hate to use the word ‘bitch,’ but that’s exactly what he’s going to be…so I am willing to put him on probation.”
