    are rare because they are difficult to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt.  Most DA's won't touch something like this without a mountain of evidence, especially against a politically powerful person.

    In my experience in the courts, if a person gets charged in public with this (heinous and inexcusable) crime, the evidence is usually overwhelming.  And even then, they usually get convicted of only a small proportion of the charges, and get very little time.

    Because there are almost always doubts.  Was it him or someone else who had access to his computer?  What excuses were made?  etc.

    I can't comment on punishment because that kind of comments would rightly get me banned from here.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
