INDIANAPOLIS - The public may never know the entire reason why an Indianapolis judge gave a convicted rapist no time in prison because the county where the man was sentenced apparently is the only one in Indiana that doesn't require its judges to state their reasons in writing.
A rape victim told reporters last week that she was appalled by the punishment that Marion County Judge Kurt Eisgruber gave her ex-husband: eight years in home detention and a 12-year suspended sentence.
Indiana University law professor Joel Schumm says the complete reasoning behind the sentence may never be known unless someone can access an audio recording of the hearing. That could be difficult to arrange not only for potential listeners but also for the court reporter.
