Former senator James Marzilli was sentenced to three months for sexually harassing four women in Lowell a couple years ago.
I don’t condone his actions at all, but I think this sentence was much harsher than the crime deserved. I don’t see whose benefit jail time serves in this case.
What do others think?
Is this the type of crime for which a person should receive jail time? And was the Middlesex DA doing the right thing by seeking a year in this case?
I think the answer to both questions is no and that this is just another, specific example of how out of control our prison system is.
