NBC’s Pete Williams Defends Insanely Lenient Sentencing by Judge Jackson for Child Porn Convict: “He Was Just Sort of Curious”

Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee has a penchant for letting child sex offenders off easy. On cue, leftist journalists ran to her defense to justify putting this depraved radical jurist on the highest court in the land.

NBC’s Pete Williams performed the most extreme and hideous display of journalistic mental gymnastics in his defense of Ketanji Brown Jackson. Watch:

The “just curious” defense of a monster who collected hundreds of images of children being raped is despicable, even for an NBC journalist. The sentence could have been 10 years, and as a father I can argue that such a sentence would be far too lenient. Giving this man just three months behind bars is an insult to the victims and their parents. But as bad as the judge’s sentence was, having leftist hack journalists stand up with such conviction in defense of the predator makes me even more sick with outrage.

Williams was attacking Senator Josh Hawley whose exchange with Judge Jackson was a highlight of the second day of her confirmation hearing. According to The Daily Caller:

Hawley raised the case United States v. Hawkins, where Jackson sentenced an 18-year-old child porn offender 3 months imprisonment, despite sentencing guidelines recommending up to 10 years. He read a transcript in which Jackson allegedly told the convict there is “no reason to think” that he is a pedophile.

“Didn’t you apologize to him? And I just got to tell you, I can’t quite figure this out,” Hawley said. “You said to him, ‘This is a truly difficult situation. I appreciate that your family’s in the audience. I feel so sorry for them, and for you and the anguish this has caused all of you. I feel terrible about the collateral consequences of this conviction.’ And then you go on to say ‘sex offenders are truly shunned in our society.’ I’m just trying to figure out, judge, is he the victim here?”

“Senator, again, I don’t have the entire record,” Jackson replied. “I remember in that particular case, I considered it to be unusual, in part for the reasons I described. I remember in that case that defense counsel was arguing for probation, in part, because he argued, we had a very young man, [who] just graduated from high school, he presented all of his diplomas and certificates and the things that he had done.”

She argued she had the responsibility to consider sentencing disparities, factors and circumstances of the defendant in the process of considering his sentence. She said she considered a number of factors that the defendant, government and probation office were pointing to.

If Ketanji Brown Jackson is confirmed, she will always be known as the Pedo-Protector in the Supreme Court. As for Pete Williams, we now know that he is among an alarmingly growing group who go out of their way to normalize child sex crimes.
