Rape victim calls her attacker’s plea deal a ‘slap on the wrist’
A Kitsap County rape victim says her attacker agreed to a plea deal that is “just a slap on the wrist.”
Stephen Tyler Clayton pleaded guilty Monday to raping three women. But the plea combined the three charges into just one count of rape and calls for Clayton to serve 12 to 14 months in prison.
The victim says she still thinks she did the right thing by coming forward. That is the message she has for other victims of rape.
It is a message she hopes the Kitsap County court system hears, too.
