Orange County Board of Supervisors formally demand controversial Judge M. Marc Kelly to resign

SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) -- The Orange County Board of Supervisors are formally demanding the resignation of Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly after his decision to give less than half the mandatory sentence to a man who sexually assaulted a 3-year-old girl.

The board adopted a resolution Tuesday to "formally rebuke, censure and demand the resignation of Judge Kelly from the Orange County Superior Court."

In December, Kelly reduced the sentence of Kevin Rojano-Nieto's to 10 years in state prison. The 20-year-old was convicted of sodomizing a 3-year-old girl, to whom he's related.

Kelly called the mandatory minimum sentence of 25 to life "cruel and unusual."
