It doesn’t really feel like justice has been served…

On Friday, Idaho teen John R.K. Howard pleaded guilty to felony injury of a child after he was charged with raping his mentally disabled football teammate in October of 2015.

In case you missed it, John and another teammate allegedly lured the young black man into the locker room under the guise of giving him a hug. Instead, the disgusting teens physically assaulted the poor kid and kicked a coat hanger into his rectum.

Deputy Attorney General Casey Hemmer explained:

“There was stuff going on in the locker room, there wasn’t really any supervision in there at the time. The other party in this case that has pled guilty in juvenile court took a coat hanger and either inserted or swung or in some way caused it to become lodged in the victim’s buttocks ├óΓé¼┬ª It’s the state’s contention that at some point, Mr. Howard purposely kicked that hanger. But in any case, Mr. Howard made contact with that hanger. It pushed it far enough into the victim that it penetrated the rectum.”

So sickening.

To make matters worse, John, who hails from Texas, had inflicted months of physical and mental abuse upon the teen which their coaches apparently ignored. A $10 million civil suit against Howard details horrific hazing against the victim, including referring to him as the n-word, humping him, and tricking him into singing Ku Klux Klan song.

While the initial charge was “forcible sexual penetration by use of a foreign object”, Howard’s guilty plea to the lesser charge of felony injury will somehow allow him to avoid jail time!

He’ll most likely face two to three years on probation as well as 300 hours of community service.

We’ll keep you updated when John is formally sentenced on February 24.
