MySpace rapists get slaps on the wrists

2 Men Sentenced For Raping Woman They Met On MySpace:

Vincent Barnett and Brian Shippee have pleaded guilty in a Vista, California court to raping a 20-year-old woman that they met on MySpace a year and a half ago.

Under the terms of their plea they only got time served and three years probation…for rape.

The victim’s family say they wanted to spare the victim from a trial. Now I’ve never been the victim of a sexual assault and I can sort of understand about not wanting to go to trial but don’t you think at some point the victim would want her attackers put away for a long time?

A third suspect Robert Melgoza has also pleaded guilty and will receive a similar sentence.

3 arrested in San Diego area sex assault

Three arrested in connection with sexual assault set up through MySpace:

Police have arrested 3 men in connection with a sexual assault that took place in the North County area near San Diego. Those arrested were Robert Melgoza, Vincent Barnett Jr. and Brian Shippee.

It’s alleged that the trio sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman who met one of them over MySpace in May of last year.

In case you needed another reason to avoid MySpace hook ups this should be it.
