A bus driver who admitted to raping a student who rode his bus was sentenced to no jail while a man treating his cancer with a plant is facing years behind bars.
‘Watertown, NY — If ever you feel that the state has your interests in mind when they provide their mandatory “protection” through this system of law enforcement, consider the following scenario which completely negates that idea.
This week, Shane Piche, a school bus driver, pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl who rode his bus.
Last year, Piche lured the child to his home after school where he gave her alcohol before raping her. He admitted to the facts of this case, yet the legal system which is ostensibly in place to protect society’s most vulnerable didn’t give him so much as a slap on the wrist.
For this horrific act, Piche will spend the next 10 years on probation — but he won’t see a single day behind bars — a terrifying notion indeed.
“I wish Shane Piche would have received time in jail for the harm he caused to my child. He took something from my daughter she will never get back and has caused her to struggle with depression and anxiety,” the victim’s mother said after hearing the judge’s ruling this week.
Here, we have a man who admitted to luring a child to his home, essentially drugging her with alcohol and then raping her, and he will not spend a day in jail. Meanwhile, entirely innocent people — who have harmed no one — but have been caught with a plant, are being thrown in cages by the hundreds of thousands.’
