    I'm reading between the lines and inferring that the Judge wants us to believe that the interviews with Morales provided reasons for leniency here -- in all likelihood, that she did not portray the relationship as traumatic, or that she was unwilling to provide proof, or ... I don't know, but there's something. (Unless the Judge is full of crap.)

    I share Catte Nappe's reluctance to ascribe Morales' suicide completely to Rambold's actions.  We don't know. I agree that it was likely part of the trauma in her life, but we just don't know what else happened in her life in the intervening two years, so I'm not sure how much to factor that into the sentencing.
