A Montana man was given 60 days in jail for raping his 12-year-old daughter


A man from eastern Montana was given a 30-year suspended prison sentence after being found guilty of raping his 12-year-old daughter, reports CBS News

But after court lawyers argued that the man was a low-risk offender, and that it would be good for him to have a social support structure, his sentence was reduced to 60 days in jail. 

The man's identity is being withheld so that the victim is not readily identifiable. 

The case has Twitter users very upset. 

Many have taken the opportunity to compare this sentence with those attached to other crimes.

District Judge John McKeon decided to also give the man 17 days credit for time he had already served in jail. 

The judge also said that he diverted from the recommended sentence because the man had the support of his family friends a church.
