What Would Happen To Dani In Real Life
My father is an ex detective and since I am in love with this show, he kinda keeps up with it as well. Well, I caught him up with the whole Dani situation and asked him what he thinks they would do. First, she would NOT be held in prison until trial. When they bring her in she will go on bail, and when someone bails her out she will probably go on a minor trial because her offense isn’t that serious. I know what she did was wrong, but the murderers, big time drug dealers, and multi rapists are the people you usually see with big or long term trials. Considering the situation IF she were to even go to prison, it wouldn’t be for more than a few months to a year, then be on parol for a while. In California (where they live) the sentence for consensual sex with a minor (Statutory rape) is up to one year in county jail or up to four years in prison. But four years rarely ever happens, and when it does it is usually a man who has a record and took the virginity of a fourteen year old girl. I know what Dani did was bad and I just wanted to straiten some things out for people to understand. Some people are thinking she is going to get locked up for life or some death sentence or something. But I know its a show but this is the realistic option.
While yeah she wont be in for more than a year or so, you can’t forget that people who are tried and found guilty of statutory rape are put in a sex offender registry. plus they will have a record for life. both of which limit her working and living aspect of life post-release.
Anything that makes a rapist life hell post release is amazing in my book.
To this day it still angers me greatly that drug offenders have a higher chance of getting more jail time then pedophiles.
