Child molester gets probation after plea deal

Somehow... this does not seem like justice.
Source HERE
A 19-year-old former Fort Wayne man was ordered to serve two years of probation Monday in Allen Superior Court for molesting a young teenage girl.
Brayden A. Chayka, most recently of Linton, pleaded guilty to two counts of child molesting. Two other molesting charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Judge John F. Surbeck Jr. sentenced Chayka to four years in prison but suspended the term and ordered him to complete two years on probation. During probation, Chayka must reside in and obey the rules of a group home and follow special rules of probation designed for sex offenders, and he must register as a sex offender.
Surbeck granted Chayka credit for 67 days served in jail. Before being sentenced, Chayka apologized and told the judge he doesn’t want to hurt the victim anymore.
A probable cause affidavit alleged Chayka fondled, kissed and had oral sex with the girl at least four times in late December and early January.
Chayka’s mother found him naked in bed while the girl was dressing about 4 a.m. in mid-January.

Molester on detention for failing to register
A 32-year-old Fort Wayne man was sentenced Monday in Allen Superior Court to 18 months’ home detention for failing to update his address on the sex offender registry.
Johnny Wise, of the 5200 block of Eastwick Drive, pleaded guilty last month to one count of failure to register as an offender. Judge Kenneth R. Scheibenberger sentenced Wise according to terms of a plea agreement – 18 months in prison. The agreement allows Wise to serve the prison term on home detention.
Wise was convicted and sentenced to prison in 2001 on one count of child molesting, and he was required to register with Indiana’s Violent and Sexual Offender registry.
A probable cause affidavit said Wise registered after he was released from prison with a River Run Trail address and later updated it to a Guthrie Street address but didn’t update it when he moved to Alvarez Drive in August. The Eastwick Drive address is Wise’s most recent address, according to court records and the registry.

Serving a sentence in the 'comforts' of home does not sound like much of a punishment. Given the internet, cable TV, a/c, ordering out for food, home shopping network. What is the point of "HOME DETENTION" please.. someone fill me in here. Just how is that justice? So he can't go out to the local bar. So sad for him. And what his neighbors get to feel better since he's not just living next door to them... now he's court ordered to stay there in the house? Is the state paying for everyone within window view of his home to install state of the art "keep your demented perverted eyes outta my house" custom steel blinds? Oh yeah.. I feel safer knowing hes not locked up behind bars, just sitting in his house all comfortable. No.. that's a great sentence. (insert sighs of sarcasm here). And then of course you have the first guy... PROBATION??? What the hell are the judges over in Indiana thinking? Trying to out due the idiot from Becker County???? I have to end this posting now- to go bang my head on a brick wall a few dozen times. I really wanna know how it feels to be as DAMN STUPID as these judges.
