While people are asking if Judge Kent is getting off easy, I think it is relevant to consider whether he will be subject to the registration requirements of the AWA after he is released from prison. Since Judge Kent took a deal as to the obstruction charge and not the sexual assault charges, he might think he won't be required to register as a sex offender. However, that question is far from settled. Importantly, Judge Kent was indicted under 18 U.S.C. 2241. The express terms of SORNA provide that a crime under 2241 yields a Tier III classification.
