Man sentenced for sex with 12-year-old-girl

Christopher Bradley Nutt, 24, admitted sexual intercourse and possession of pornographic photos of a 12-year-old girl in a plea deal, and was sentenced to 270 days in local jail.

The plea deal was signed in August, he was sentenced yesterday in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse.

Nutt has been in a San Diego County jail since he was arrested last May and charged with six lewd acts with a child and using a child to create pornography and possession of child porn, ten felonies in all.

Escondido Police stated they found the 12-year-old girl in a bedroom with Nutt, the early morning hours of May 27, 2012. The girls parents had reported the child missing, and police investigated the girl’s cell phone use to locate her. Police stated that Nutt and the girl had met through “an online social network site.”

Christopher Nutt’s privately retained defense attorney, Dan Greene, commented: “There was no seducing. From the text messages it was clear that it was a mutual, consensual encounter. The victim registered on the ‘dating’ site as an adult. The site requires a new user to input a date of birth which must show the person is 18+. How she listed her age in her profile apparently will never be proven because the website company chooses not to maintain those records or that information.”

Defense attorney Greene stated that Nutt “was told and believed she was 18” but also “at one point she said she was 16.” The attorney said activity between his client and the girl was not “forceful” and “the acts were all voluntary.”

Christopher Nutt will have to register as a sex offender, and it will be “up to the probation department” to decide if he must wear a GPS monitor once he is released, according to attorneys.

Consensual? Twelve effing years old? 270 days? Plea deal? Really?

Oct. 5, 2012

Sounds too lenient to be real.

Oct. 5, 2012

On top of the 270 days jail time and registering as a lifetime sex offender, Deputy District Attorney Patricia Lavermicocca said Nutt will be on probation for at least five years. During that time, his internet usage will be closely monitored by authorities and he will have to attend sex offender classes. And according to the prosecutor, with credit for time served since his May arrest, coupled with a jail policy that allows many inmates to serve half of their sentences, Nutt could be out of custody within a week. “Based on all of our investigation, we felt this was a fair and just result,” the prosecutor said after Nutt’s hearing. Your justice system at work.

Generally speaking the the 4019 half time custody credits do NOT apply to any sex offenses (or murder). I believe sex offenses MUST serve 85% of their sentences. The wild card is I think that since he was sentenced to county instead of the state pen the credits may apply. I think in County all offenses get half time 4019 credits. But not 100% sure on that. 12 y/o is 7th grade, that is very young, but w/o seeing her it is hard to tell if she looked that young...BUT, if the website required you to be 18 y/o he had some what of a decent defense. Do you got to trial with that defense and risk 15 years int he state pen, or do the deal??? Being required to regerster as a sex offender would be worth the risk for trial imo.
