Ask Deborah Ross……
Why did she fight the NC sex offender registry?
Does opposing the sex offender registry protect women and children?
Why does she think Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy?
Why did Ross advocate for a rapist?
“Too many women and children in this country and in our state know the fear of an unsafe home,” Ross said last month. “They need someone who will stand with them, not another Washington politician who talks about their safety and votes to undermine it.”
But in the mid-1990s, Ross found herself in a different position, urging the North Carolina courts to impose a lenient sentence on a 13-year-old who sexually assaulted his 23-year-old neighbor — with the victim’s 20-month-old son watching in the same room. The state Supreme Court rejected Ross’ push, sentencing Andre Green to life in prison for what it said was a “heinous” crime.
Ross defended the rapist that had stalked his victim for two weeks, attacked her with a broomstick and punched her repeatedly. She argued that trying Green in an adult court was a decision “totally lacking in fundamental fairness.”
Ross continued to advocate for the rapist after convention according The Beacon.
