Oregon Judge: State 'Stuck their neck out' for Son of DA Who Raped 13-Year Old

Judge warns rapist, don't "stub your toe again" -also states, "You've been a good person," describing sex crime of Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier's son as "an isolated incident". If only judges were so kind to everyone.

(SALEM) - The son of the Coos County, Oregon District Attorney admits to raping a 13-year old girl, (Sex with a minor in Oregon is always considered rape- no exceptions) however he is receiving no jail time, just probation. He is the youngest of five male defendants, 17 to 30 years of age, arrested in the case, according to The Register Guard.

My recent article, Retracted and Redacted- A Comparison of Two Oregon 'Criminals', examined the contrast between two Oregon sex cases.

  • Former Oregon Senator and head of state police training, John Minnis, repeatedly raped a married female employee after getting her drunk on out-of-town business trips.
  • Terrence Kimble; who went to prison on a 19-year sentence for 'sex abuse', was accused of an act against a girl who recanted testimony. DNA didn't match.

The state police; well in Republican politician Minnis's good graces, along with the prosecutors and the judges, allowed the man's authority to override the severity of his crime.

DA Paul Frasier Coquille-Today

They gave him a free ticket, or is that a 'stay out of jail free' card.. I'm not entirely sure which. Oregon taxpayers picked up Minnis's bill; the woman Minnis raped in a drunken state was rewarded $385,000 after Minnis was convicted in civil court of the crimes.

17-year old Jacob Frasier, the son of Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier, the youngest of five males who reportedly raped a 13-year old girl, will do no time. As indicated below in a story by a southern Oregon news publication; a telling quote from the judge praises the young rapist.

Terrence Kimble and John Minnis

And then there is the part where the excuse is offered, that the girl said she was 15. Can anyone name a time that ignorance is an excuse for the law? This is blatant and anyone can see it.

Adding insult to injury, the judge was brought in from Polk County, possibly the most historically corrupt, prejudice county in the state of Oregon, from where countless cases of injustice scream out.

District Attorney Paul Frasier wrote in a news release, "Even though I am the district attorney, neither myself or members of my family are above the law." He added, "I have been very vocal that we are not to be treated any differently than any other family. If Jacob is guilty of any crime, Jacob will have to submit to the requirements of the law as would any other person."

Minnis the Menace

As an old friend of Oregon's courts and legislators; Minnis was able to abscond from any reasonable form of punishment; receiving no sentence, and provides for us a harrowing double standard in real living color of Oregon's smug corruption that lives isolated from fear of exposure as we are the only media group that follows the stories.

But hey, Oregon officials murdered Prison Director Michael Frankce in 1989 because he was about to expose a lot of people and ruin a lot of lives. That's the nature of this state; it is all seeded in something very dark and completely off the radar, unless you are an inmate, victim of official corruption, or in my case, an investigative reporter. Francke was brought here to battle corruption in the Oregon prisons, and when he was three days shy of turning his findings over to the legislature, he was stabbed to death on the steps of the main prison building. He got one here before they got him; a top Oregon DOJ lawyer, Scott McCallister, who would be busted for child porn he was taking from state investigations and sharing with his Oregon DOJ and politician friends who would go to retreats in Bend.

This state government has gotten away with Murder since 1989 and Dale Penn, who is a judge today, is probably the first person who should be placed under deposition over the death of Michael Francke. The case was part of an 'America's Most Wanted' episode after it was adjudicated. This is a state where a pack of officials used to, and continue to, practice their own brand of justice. We assume they laugh at all of us who call this out, because they have the Statesman Journal and other media in their pocket; their little reporter heads bobbing up and down as they are given directives over what to cover and what to leave alone.

What we know for sure, is that people of color suffer, and white officials and their sons are prevented from serving time.

Talk is cheap. His son will in three years, have no sign of raping a 13-year old girl, on his record. There is also no photograph of Jacob Frasier, in other cases involving 17-year old's involved in serious crimes, their photos are widely distributed. Protection seems to have surrounded this case from the offset. There could after all, be other victims, that is always what happens in sex cases. Police send out the perp's picture so that other possible victims can come forward.

But if you were victimized by this wealthy man's privileged son, you are out of luck.

Southern Oregon's The World wrote:

The 17-year-old son of the district attorney admitted today in court to having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Jacob Frasier and his lawyer, John Meynink, negotiated a plea agreement with the deputy district attorney from Douglas County handling the case. Per the agreement, Frasier pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual abuse -- a felony -- and Deputy District Attorney Kathleen Johnson dropped the charge of third degree rape.

Judge Charles Luukinen -- a retired judge from Polk County who came in to help both sides reach a plea agreement -- sentenced Frasier to three years, probation. If Frasier successfully completes his probation, the charge will be dropped to a misdemeanor and he will not have to register as a sex offender.

'You've been a good person," Luukinen said. 'It is an isolated incident that brings you before the court. The state agrees, and they've stuck their neck out for you. I'd appreciate it, personally, if you wouldn't stub your toe again." - Fraiser takes plea, four others await trialDA's son settles rape case

I am shocked and sickened by this quote from a 'retired judge' - "You've been a good person". Could I possibly be the only person to call foul? Is it ever a judge's place to tell a rapist 'good job'?

It is a DA's son and he is not only excused from a very serious crime with a hand slap, but he is praised?

One can only imagine the crimes we may not know about, or ever will as the system so clearly protects officials and their families so well, so thoroughly. It is the taxpayers who cover the cost of all of it and only ignorance keeps them from coming unglued also.

Terrence Kimble, who is African-American and not a district attorney's son, received 19-years for a charge of first-degree sex abuse?

In Kimble's case, the victim actually recanted her testimony of having been "raped"; and told doctors who examined her the same thing. An exam revealed the girl had never participated in sex. Yet none of that mattered for the good of Kimble, who was supported by the alleged victim's family, which is extremely rare.

He was sent to prison for 19-years, for first-degree sex abuse. Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber says he has reviewed the case but implies that he has to be limited in his use of his position to help inmates.

In a letter to Kimble, Gov. Kitzhaber wrote:




August 8, 2011
Mr. Terrence LaDelle Kimble
SID#14021834
Snake River Correctional Institution
777 Stanton Boulevard
Ontario, OR 97914-0595

Dear Mr. Kimble

I have received and reviewed your application for communication of sentence.

The power to grant executive clemency is a responsibility that I take very seriously. I believe that a governor's clemency power should be exercised sparingly. The separation of powers inherent in our system of government, and respect for the workings of the judicial system require that the governor's clemency power be used in only the most extraordinary of circumstances.

I have considered carefully whether the application for commutation should be granted. Under the circumstances I have concluded that a commutation is not warranted. I am therefore denying your application.

John Kitzhaber M.D.
Governor

Double Standards of Kitzhaber

This is a real shocker considering the effort Kitzhaber went through, to prevent the capital punishment of convicted murderer Gary Haugen. This governor is a medical doctor, you would think he could possibly see that the case against Kimble; involving a 19 year prison sentence for touching a 13-year old girl improperly, is only half served.

Kitzhaber could do the right thing, but perhaps it is the fact that Kimble is innocent that keeps him inside. I have to wonder if the fact that he has made strong allegations against prison officials and corrections officers and the bribery allegations he has brought forth, these seem perhaps more relevant to his continued incarceration.

The Huff Post gave Kitz hell for what many saw as a huge political overstep:

A condemned inmate who was scheduled to be executed next month is slamming Gov. John Kitzhaber for giving him a reprieve, saying the governor didn't have the guts to carry out the execution.

Two-time murderer Gary Haugen had voluntarily given up his legal challenges, saying he wants to be executed in protest of a criminal justice system he views as broken. But Kitzhaber on Tuesday said he won't allow anyone to be executed while he is in office, calling Oregon's death penalty scheme 'compromised and inequitable.'

'I feel he's a paper cowboy," he said. "He couldn't pull the trigger.' - Gary Haugen, Convicted Murderer, Criticizes Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber For Halting His Execution - Huffington Post

As Politico reported last November:

A Democrat, Kitzhaber announced on Tuesday he would not allow the execution of death row inmate Gary Haugen as planned on Dec. 6, The Oregonian reported. The governor said in a statement he believes the death penalty is “morally wrong” and will impose a moratorium on all executions as long as he’s in office. - Oregon governor halts executions

It's funny, when a person under 18 commits a crime, they are sometimes 'charged as adults' which completely violates the system's honor and duty to protect and separate minors from adult populations. However fair is fair, and this egregious miscarriage of justice is devastating to Oregon's sense of character.

The 17-year old in another setting, almost any other setting, would be viewed as a menace to society. He preyed on a 13-year old girl and if anyone else had done the same, they would be in big trouble. This is a shameful day for the story of Terrence Kimble, an innocent man sentenced in a perverted state system of justice that is tempered by racism and protection of officials who violate the bodies of people, under the color of law, knowing Oregon will take care of them and ensure that above all, they serve no time in jail.

I don't think Kitzhaber looked at the case, I think maybe he gave it a cursory review at best. Anyone can review the documents, they are well chronicled and the links below are complete.

Only a 4 year age difference and both were minors. If it was a consensual "rape" whats the big deal?

Editor: She was a child, I'm not sure what you are getting at.   But hey, whatever a cop's kid did was OK with you right?  Because he is a cop's kid


Jimmy Black March 27, 2012 11:48 am (Pacific time)

wow unbelieveable!! nice picture of the governor, he probably just been asked the question if he going to free Kimble, his smile answer our question and his statement back it up. This governor is racist, he save a white man that deserve to die and want free a black man that's so in the clear not gulity. I see protest in the future Mr. Governor


March 26, 2012 9:17 am (Pacific time)

The Salem PD failed to protect a 12 year old from rape by an 18 year old that the police responding personally knew.  When a formal complaint was filed by the Police Chief, there was nothing but a cover up, even though the police involved had already been fired from the force,  How is THAT for "justice"?


March 26, 2012 8:34 am (Pacific time)

Getting away with this,, so easily, well, I can guarantee he will do it again. Guaranteed, its the way it is. It rains in Oregon in winter. etc. Maybe next time tho, he will do this to an underage girl, who's Dad is a bit more like me. I wont say anymore..well, except, I hope there are those congical (sp) visits, and I hope Tim will visit me on weekends. :-) Bring smokes Tim!! :-)

Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. ~Louis Dembitz Brandeis If anyone had a problem understanding what Louis Brandeis meant when he uttered the above quote ... the handling of this case should make it painfully clear! Rather than interpret the law, our courts have begun writing and/or re-writing the law and contempt for the law ... placing oneself above the law ensues. When position and power can hijack justice, there is no justice ... only judicial legislation on the fly!
