Tony Simmons and his nasty azz almost got off with ten years of probation after pleading guilty to raping a 15-year-old and molesting two other little girls. Then he started talking sh*t.
Disgraced juvie counselor Tony Simmons was called on the carpet yesterday by a Manhattan Supreme Court judge, who was none too pleased that the perv has been spending the past six weeks claiming his teenaged victims got what they wanted and that he only pleaded guilty to stay out of jail.
“This defendant does not admit his guilt, and, more alarmingly . . . blames the victim,” Justice Cassandra Mullen said from the bench, adding that such behavior “shocks the conscience of the court.”
If not for his odious, post-plea comments to probation officials and others — Simmons even claimed his 16-year-old rape victim “enjoyed it” — he would have been sentenced yesterday to just 10 years’ probation for assaults on three troubled girls, aged 15 and 16, at Manhattan Family Court.
That original Sept. 27, no-jail deal had left DA Cyrus Vance Jr. blasting the judge as “outrageously lenient” — even though prosecutors had made no record of their objections when the deal was struck in open court.
Offered the new, far more painful deal by prosecutors yesterday — a sentence of three years in prison — Simmons choked, saying he was neither ready to accept the sentence nor go to trial.
Mullen answered that since Simmons wasn’t willing to take the three years immediately, she was voiding his old plea by fiat — and was returning him to his previous status of defendant.
She set Dec. 15 as his next day in court, at which time he can still plead guilty and take the three years or else agree to a trial date. He remains free on $100,000 bail.
“He seems to think he did the victims a favor.”
Simmons told officials one victim, after being attacked, told him, ” ‘Thanks, I needed that,’ — like she enjoyed it.”
