A 22-year-old Bogart man was sentenced recently in Madison County Superior Court to eight years probation for statutory rape.
Kendeall Leonard Johnson, 175 Stonehenge Way, was also fined $1,350. Prosecutors chose not to seek convictions on charges of child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and loitering or prowling.
In a separate case, Jeffrey Hoyt Couch, 41, 615 Woodale Street, Hull, was sentenced to 10 years probation and was fined $725 for aggravated battery.

HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE 8 years probation for statutory rape? I guess if you killed someone you may get 6 months in prison IF the Judge was in a bad mood?
This is the exact reason people come to Madison Co. to commit crimes? The Justice system here is A JOKE on the people who are career criminals? They figure as long as they are alive they may as well spend it on probation.
