Action Alert: court-appointed juvenile counselor gets NO jail time for Teen Rape?!

Juvenile Counselor Sexually Assaults 3 Teen Girls, Gets Probation?!
Sign Our Petition NOW & Help Secure Justice for Victims
Last week, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Cassandra Mullen proposed a sentence of ten years probation with absolutely no jail time for a court-appointed juvenile counselor--Tony Simmons--who pled guilty to raping one girl and sexually assaulting two others that he was transporting to Manhattan Family Court.  Court transcripts show that prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney's office did not object to the no-jail time plea. 

In one of the instances, the assailant brought a 15-year-old girl entrusted to his custody down to the basement of the court building to rape her. Just moments after the attack he escorted her to her scheduled court appearance. 

Take Action: We need you to send the message that this is outrageous!
