NC Fathers Rights

Judge Ralph Nunez, Fresno California Double Standards In The Courts

Judge Ralph Nunez, Fresno CaliforniaJudge Ralph Nunez is a Fresno California Judge who recently ruled in the Megan Denman sexual assault trial in which the teacher was facing six felony charges after having sexual relations with underage child at Hoover High School where she was employed. No doubt Judge Nunez is aware of the massive outcry of fathers and women in paternal families in California who have for decades been calling on legislators to fix the highly divisive and biased family courts, and by other groups who have cried foul over sentencing disparities women receive when they commit the same crimes as men. And, if we had the opportunity to speak with Judge Nunez he would contend that there are no disparities in sentencing or biased family courts. In January of 2014, after being found guilty of her charges, Judge Ralph Nunez gave Megan Denman just 6 years in jail and she does not have to register as a sex offender leading us to ask the simple question, what would he have sentenced a male teacher to had he faced the same charges and been found guilty?

For fathers in the family courts, or men who face trials for crimes in Fresno California, you know the answer. For women in paternal families who have for 8 decades been crying foul over the treatment your sons face in the courts, you have you answer.

Now, no doubt this Judge will defend his sentencing on the grounds that all trials and situations are different, but I think we all know that is just code for covering up bias and gender bigotry. If you do a Internet search of the incredible amounts of female teachers in recent years who have come to face charges stemming from sexual relations with underage children, you will discover that they too escaped registering as sex offenders and any meaningful jail time.

It should be noted that one of the reasons Judge Nunez gave Megan Denman so little jail time and kept her from having to register as a sex offender is because a psychologist testified that he/she did not think she would ever commit this crime again. However, let’s remember that in the Jodi Arias trial, two Ph.D level researchers with the same degree and research background came to two different conclusions on Jodi Arias leaving everyone to wonder how they can be experts if they reach two different conclusions on the same subject. In hearing this, it lead this author to wonder if the psychologist in this case has a bias in that he/she thinks only males are recidivist in sexual assault cases for which there is a growing amount of evidence showing that woman are. If the Megan Denman case were the only example we have, I could give this Judge and “expert” some slack. Unfortunately, it seems that every sexual assault that makes it to trial involving a female and underage child, the female walks away not having to register and receiving overwhelming and considerable amounts of jail time.

Where are the feminist in California on this inequality? Exactly.

Our concern with this is that Judges in California and elsewhere are socializing women to think that they can have sexual relations with children and will escape and real consequences and this likely bolsters their behaviors. It is not unlike the family courts where Judges have socialized women to know that they will receive custody which has led malicious mothers to become entitled. We think that this entitlement leads many mothers to not fear consequences and accountability when they purposefully alienate children from their fathers and paternal grandmothers and step-mothers.

If there is a silver lining in Judge Nunez’s sentencing of Megan Denman, it should be painfully apparent to father’s rights and shared parenting groups that Judges are absolutely and completely biased in their jobs and should result in you joining your local or state level organizations demanding a more fair and balanced criminal and family courts experience.

If the family, specifically the mother of the underage boys, wants to have their say in Judge Nunez’s decision, we would love to hear it and will be happy to attach their statement to this article. We would also love to hear from others who have direct knowledge of this Judge and his relations to women’s rights / mother’s rights groups or political organizations who call for mother centered family courts.

We would like to see Judge Ralph Nunez and the Fresno California courts to explain why when men and fathers face sexual assault charges they are often referred to as predators and child molesters, but when women face the same charges it is always “a sexual relationship that was inappropriate.” Judge, do you or someone in your family have active involvement in women’s rights groups who have a desire both financially and politically to suppress damaging data from women rapist and child molesters while making sure that male rapist and child molesters get a full range of media exposure and sentencing? If not, can you explain why all these female teachers are escaping jail and registration on sex offender registries other that you usual “every case is different” stance that nobody is buying anymore?

We would be interested in hearing from anyone who faced this Judge in a family court matter who is a member of a non-custodial family to hear if they felt or witnessed any bias in the family courts.

Judge, we often hear that all court matters, especially those in family court matters are about the “best interest of children” – how exactly is letting a convicted child molester escape having to register and only facing 6 months in a jail (not prison) helping these children? Will the victim boys grow up to think that it is OK for women to rape little boys and girls?

We encourage you to extensively share this article with others on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ so that men and women in paternal families can help us with our mission in seeing that all rapist and sexual offenders are prosecuted and sentenced similarly without regards to their gender. Also, we encourage you to use the comment system at the end of this article to leave your thoughts on this case.

  1. This really is disgusting and as a mother of two boys I would be LIVID if this happened to my child. I don’t care if you have some ideology or a member to some group advocating for gender and sexual politics, this Judge just slapped these male children in the face and if California votes for Judges then they better get busy getting this one off the bench because this is dangerous.

  2. If you search his history you will find that he is likely has attachments to some organization, or his wife does advocating for women. These groups need all women to be seen as saints and all men to be seen as devils for political and financial reasons.

  3. As a paternal grandmother I can say without a doubt the courts are biased. My son wanted to be a father to his daughter, an equal father and was denied. It is Judges and their creating conflict and despair so that families throw money around within the system that is a BIG PROBLEM. Watch the Divorce Corp documentary!

  5. Do they elect Judges in California?

    • Tom, Judges in NC are elected, but not sure about California. If not, the best thing to do is join or start a fathers rights group demanding shared parenting and equal sentencing in the courts with legislators and if they refuse, start impacting elections. Men and women in their families, along with non-custodial families equals a huge amounts of voters.

  6. Actually Judge Nunez should be given SOME credit for sentencing her to jail at all. It is most common for female rapist and sex offenders to not get ANY jail at all so I view this as some progress even though it is still a slap in the face.

  8. Hello
    There is much bias in the family courts in Fresno. Some of the judges are checked out and aren’t even reading the evidence in front of them. Custody evaluations are a joke and someone should check up on the psychologists on the court list. One of them is even on Damons list for five counties. Our legal system is extremely broken.
