All we can say is, why are we not surprised. There is some justice. One wonders what the three suspects were afraid of with sentences like this.

Amigoe: Mandatory support for sexual offender
ORANJESTAD – An 18-year old father to be is convicted to four months imprisonment conditionally and 60 hours community service, because he had sex with a 13-year old girl, and at the same time, impregnated another 14-year old girl. The 13-year old girl, M.G. lived with David Regulo Henriquez in the neighbourhood. The two had sex with each other from March up till and included August of 2006. When the mother of the girl learned about this, she contacted the police. G. declared that she is in love with Henriquez and that the grandmother of the boy had encouraged her to go to the boy. Both declared having had consensual sex.
During a background investigation on Henriquez, it turned out that he also had a relation with another minor, who got pregnant from him and is due in April. Both Henriquez and G. were tested for venereal disease and the result was that he has no STD , but she does. YOUNG The Public Prosecutor decided to prosecute, due to the young age of the girl. “This suspect needs support and guidance. He needs to realize what the consequences are of his sexual preferences for such young girls”, said the public prosecutor. The judge admitted having a problem. He said that only the sexual offence with the 13-year old girl will be prosecuted and not the fact that he has impregnated a 14-year old girl. “But it is important that the OM doesn’t want to consider the two cases separately.” The judge said that with his 18 years, Henriquez is too young to become a father, but his unprotected sexual relation with two minors is morally alarming. GET MARRIED Henriquez said that he wants to marry his girlfriend after she gives birth. He wants them to take care of their baby together. The girlfriend still lives at home with her parents and Henriquez’s parents live in the Netherlands . The girlfriend wrote a letter to the judge telling him that he loves Henriquez and wants to be with him and their baby. She also said that her parents do not approve that and want to keep him away from her. The public prosecutor demanded a conditional imprisonment of four months and two years probation, 100 hours community service, and rehabilitation surveillance against Henriquez.
