Only 6-20% of rapists ever see the inside of a jail cell, so...

(And as everyone else has stated, proportionality)

But that’s because it’s hard to prove. Not because the law wouldn’t jail convicted rapists. This guy had the photos on his phone.

It's definitely hard to prove when rape kits are so frequently not given or sit untested afterwards.

It's even harder to prove when it's such an underrepoted crime because victims fear they won't be believed, and would rather try to move on then go through the additional stress of trying to get justice.

The tounge-in-cheek point of my comment was that sex crimes aren't taken as seriously as they should be.
