Life sentence for lewd behavior

If you don't believe that we have draconian penalties for sex crimes, check out this case:
Michelle Lyn Taylor received life sentence for forcing a boy to touch her breasts last week in Elko.
A video shows the sentencing arguments. The Nevada state law requires the life sentence.

Usually men get these sentences. There are murderers who have gotten less.

The jury verdict was for lewd behavior. The jury may have thought that the sentence would be probation or something like that. If you are ever on a jury, you might want to find out what the penalty is for the crime being charged.
