A NY man who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl will serve just 10 years probation and no time behind bars for his crime, a judge has ruled.

Jefferson County Supreme Court Judge James McClusky sentenced 26-year-old Shane Piche to 10 years of probation last week. Eventually, he lured the girl to his home outside Watertown in NY state, and plied her with alcohol before raping her.

His sentencing last week drew national media attention and harsh criticism. Some critics posted the judge's phone number online.

Much like in the Brock Turner incident, there are calls for the judge to be recalled.

'The Judge's chambers have received numerous vitriolic calls regarding the case, the vast majority from out of state, by individuals who know nothing about the facts and circumstances of the case, thanks to social media, ' state court spokesman Lucian Chalfen said.

A NY courts spokesman says the judge was within the sentencing range for this type of a negotiated plea conviction.

He said the maximum state prison time he could have received would have been from 16 months to 4 years.

Piche pleaded guilty to third-degree rape in February, according to the Huffington Post. Level 1 status is reserved for offenders with a low risk of committing another similar crime, and therefore his future addresses will not be made public. Piche is also responsible for $375 in court fees and a $1,000 sex offender registration fee.

Prosecutors originally asked for a "split to probation", which is a mix of jail time and up to 10 years' probation, Dziuba said.

Of course, we often do want judges to be lenient on first time offenders, especially of non-violent drug offenses, but there is simply no excuse to say that because it's someone's first time raping a child, that they should only get the lightest sentence possible.

Piche did not make a statement at his sentencing, but his attorney, Eric Swartz, said the sentence was appropriate.

"He'll be a felon for the rest of his life". He's on the sex offender registry for a long time, ' Swartz told television station WWNY of Watertown.

The victim's mother wrote in an impact statement, "I wish Shane Piche would have received time in jail for the harm he caused to my child".

'He took something from my daughter she will never get back and has caused her to struggle with depression and anxiety'.

Piche, a former Watertown City School District bus driver, met the girl on one of his routes, but the assault occurred at his home.

'Unfortunately, this can discourage survivors who see jail or prison time as a form of accountability, ' Miller said. Last December, he entered a deal with prosecutors that reduced his charges in exchange for a sentence of three years of deferred adjudication probation, counseling and a $400 fine.
