Minnesota Man Receives To 2 Months In Jail For Raping A Passed Out Teen

A Minnesota man convicted of raping a minor will be sentenced to two months in prison, after striking a plea deal.

A Minnesota man convicted of raping a minor will be sentenced to two months in prison, after striking a plea deal with prosecutors in February, according to Southern Minnesota News.

Jack Roger Zimmerman, a 21-year-old native of Waseca, pleaded guilty to 4th-degree felony criminal sexual conduct after prosecutors agreed to drop his 1st and 2nd-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.

Zimmerman reportedly raped a 17-year-old victim in his parent’s Madison Lake house on October of 2016. According to media reports, the accused had sex with the victim while she was asleep, following a session of binge drinking that left her “black-out drunk”.

The subsequent exam found bite marks, bruising, and abrasions on multiple areas of the victim’s body. Witnesses said Zimmerman, who was tried as an adult, was extremely aggressive during the act.

According to the February deal, the Waseca man will stay 60 days in jail and receive five years of imposition. He must also pay $2,077 in fines, and avoid using devices with internet capabilities.

If he complies with the probation conditions, Zimmerman’s will have the option of reducing his conviction to a misdemeanor, and of serving his jail time on a work release.

The man is white. If he were African-American he might be worrying about spending the next twenty years in the slam. The "liberty and justice for all" thing is just a bunch of words.

They loose bowel control at the sight of POC just existing, then give every benefit to PROVEN criminals. As long as they look "respectable." Meaning rich & white.

Note that he gets to serve his "sentence" on work release!! This is something she will carry with her for the rest of her life. In some states, if she were to have become pregnant as a result of this rape, she would be forced to serve a life sentence giving birth to, and raising, her rapist's child. Also, if this fellow had not been white it would have been a whole different outcome.

"Witnesses said Zimmerman, who was tried as an adult, was extremely aggressive during the act.....". Duh! He was 21 years old, Of course he was tried as an adult. It's the sentence that bothers me. Had this man been a run down, dark skinned black inner-city "bad boy" you can bet your life that he would have receive a sentence of multiple years in jail...But, here again, a young clean-cut rosy-cheeked white boy will get his hand slapped with a 90 day jail sentence, with much of of it to be served on work release, if he keeps his nose clean.. This is yet again a stark example of a deeply flawed justice system that favors the white male and the rich. They don't try to mask the difference.

To those commenting, “if he were black, he’d get a harsher sentence,” we see you. We see the injustice in the legal system but do NOT forget that this is not just your fight! This is a war on women. If he had raped a man, he’d get several years in prison, but he raped a woman, and that’s not seen as a crime. Yes feel free to speak up when you see injustice because of race but do NOT ignore US! Do NOT forget that this is how women are being treated, fight with us, do NOT forget us like they do. We have no one but ourselves fighting for us, so join us.

I agree, white privilege. I question why they took his internet devices away? They do not mention that he used a computer in the crime. Maybe he met her online originally?

“Zimmerman, who was tried as an adult, was extremely aggressive during the act.“ He is 21, why wouldn’t he be tried as an adult?
