People v. Valdez, No. E045289

By FindLaw Staff on June 22, 2009 5:25 PM

Defendant's rape with a foreign object sentence is affirmed where Defendant claimed that the prohibition on granting probation to one convicted of rape with a foreign object violated Equal Protection because no similar prohibition applied to simple rape, but prohibiting the trial court from exercising its discretion to grant probation to the parent of a child conceived by rape would run counter to a number of legitimate societal goals.
