WASHINGTON, D.C. - Last week, in a Washington Navy Yard courtroom, Judge Capt. Aaron Rugh sentenced U.S. Naval Academy Midshipman Nixon Keago, 25, to 25 years in federal prison. The sentencing was the final action taken in a weeks-long court-martial process.
In July, Keago was found guilty of sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, obstruction of justice and burglary. He assaulted three female midshipmen in four separate attacks, between February 2018 and September 2018.
One attack took place at the U.S. Naval Academy, when Keago broke into a victim's room and sexually assaulted her while she was asleep. He also attacked two other female midshipmen during Fleet Week in New York City, according to court documents.
The sentencing was a disappointment to prosecutors who asked that Neago be given 40 years behind bars.
The Capital Gazette reported:
Government expert witness Reneau Kennedy, a psychologist who studies forensic recidivism, testified last month that Keago has a low rehabilitation potential. Cox repeated the sentiment over and over.
Criminal charges did not prevent him from attempting to sexually assault women, Cox said, pointing to the last incident, which happened after Keago knew he was charged with sexual assault.
“Confinement is the only way to stop it,” he said.
Neago could have been sentenced to a maximum of 120 years in prison.
Unlike the civilian criminal justice system, military justice is generally swift and harsh.
Furthermore, no other publication thus far, has reported that Nixon Keago was arrested by the North Carolina Highway Patrol in Wake County, North Carolina, and charged with a DUI. That arrest came on August 24, 2019, while he was awaiting trial for the string of sexual assaults.
*Of course, if asked, those who consider themselves 'journalists' while still working for the agenda-driven MSM, would give the tiresome answer that the sexual predator's immigration status “is not important to the story.” But, many of the outlets felt it important to point out that Keago enjoys strong support from his family, and spoke about Keago's “fear of his child growing up without him.”
The fact remains, that if Nixon Keago had not been admitted to this country, three young women would not have to live the rest of their lives with the trauma of being sexually assaulted by this immigrant. That fact seems incredibly important to this tragic story. Then again, this reporter does not work for CNN, nor for The Washington (Bezos) Post.
