Brothers Beat Child Molester; Now Facing More Prison Time Than Molester
Two Northern California brothers who allegedly beat a child molester after they learned of his attack on an 8-year-old girl may get more time in prison than the molester, The Mercury News reported. Miguel Cerda, described as a father figure to the girl, and brother Erik Cerda turned down two plea deals that would have brought them one to four years in state prison. Instead, they now face seven years to life in prison if convicted at trial.These guys wouldn't get a day in prison if I were on the jury. Vigilante justice is never an acceptable substitute, but there is something seriously wrong with a legal system that would sentence these two to more time than a child molester.
