Man Gets Probation In MySpace Sex Case


Suspect won't face any jail time:

A 20-year-old New Jersey man who had been accused of raping a 13-year-old girl and assaulting her friend after he met one of them on MySpace has been sentenced to 10 years probation.

Working with DA's office, Rephael Brandon Swan, of Newark, agreed to plead guilty if the state dropped some of the more severe charges.

I guess it worked out amazingly well for Swan, has he now doesn't have to spend a single day in jail for abusing the 13-year-old.

What an excellent message Judge Anthony Beltrami has sent to the public. It turns out if you are an adult who has sex with a child in the state of New Jersey there won't be any major repercussions for your decision.

In fact, if you are accused of something like this all you really have to do is tell them Judge Beltrami said it was all ok.

  1. ok... I know rephael swan personally... and I know for a fact the whole thing was a set up... he was innocent from the start. He didn't even touch her. He has just been a victim of a huge misunderstanding.

  2. how is this possible at all? he is obviously guilty if a rape kit was used on the child to prove the victim guilty.
