On August, 8, a Virginia judge made the decision that Logan Osborn would not have to serve anytime in prison for the sexual assault of his 14-year-old classmate back in April 2017.


Going back to September 11, 2017, Osborn pleaded guilty to charges of having carnal knowledge of the young girl and was sentenced to 10 years in prison with 8 years suspended.


In January 2018, Chesterfield Circuit Judge T J Hauler delayed the execution of Logan Osborn's two-year sentence for another six months, explaining to Osborn at the time, “I will decide then how much of the two years you will actually serve."


Last week, Hauler’s decision to stay the remaining two years of Osborn’s sentence is “tantamount to suspending the entire 10-year prison term,” according to the Times-Dispatch.


During the hearing that was held in August, Hauler said that he needed to hear "some positive things” about Logan Osborn.


This led to the defense bringing out James Trent, a foreman for an electric company for which Osborn worked, who gave him a glowing report, calling him a model employee and stating that “the sky’s the limit” for Osborn’s future with the company.


The incident between Osborn, who was 18 at the time, and the victim, took place in April 2017. They first met at prom and then met up a week later to see a school play.


After getting the girl on her own by the end of the play, the prosecution claimed that Osborn tied a belt around her hands and neck, pushed her to the ground, and forced her to perform a sexual act. The victim was said to be crying throughout the assault and Logan Osborn picked her up, pushed her against a fence, before forcing her back down onto her knees.


The mother of the victim picked her up shortly after and upon seeing the state her daughter was in, questioned her and took her to a hospital for an exam after she explained what Logan Osborn had done to her.


Logan Osborn's defense argued that the incident that had occurred between the pair was consensual, citing text messages from the victim to Logan Osborn that he said would agree with Osborn's suggestion to “have some fun” after the play.


The prosecutor said that Osborn took advantage of the victim’s naivety and added that a 14-year-old girl could not legally consent to sexual activity. Worryingly this is not the first time that Logan Osborn has been accused of sexual misconduct, he has actually been accused seven times before, one of those accusations actually resulted in him being charged with grabbing the genitals of another student when he was just 12-years-old.


Chesterfield prosecutor Erin Barr, who spoke on behalf of the victim’s family, told the Times-Dispatch that the family is unhappy with the judge’s latest decision.


“The family is disappointed that the defendant will not serve any active incarceration for the brutal attack on the victim,” Barr said. “They do not believe justice has been served and share concern for community safety for potential victims.”


Judge Hauler has a history of controversial rulings that stem back before the Logan Osborn case. In 2015 Hauler authorised the release of Dana William, a man who had served less than two years in prison for the brutal rape of his ex-girlfriend. The state strongly contested the ruling, believing that he was a danger to society and wanted him to be kept behind bars, however, Hauler disagreed and released him.


Williams later went on to strangle his ex-wife's father to death and then kidnapped her mother, a clear drastic failing on society by Judge Hauler.


We hope that this most recent decision by Hauler won't result in the same horrific consequences of his previous mistakes, however, many believe that the warning signs are clearly there.
