<<Of course it is important to protect future victims, but that is not the
only consideration here. What about the fallout to the family of the
victim, to the family of the perpetrator, and to the community as a whole?>>

Can you give a place in shas or SA where the punishment of a crime accounts
for the pain to the family

If someone deserves the death penalty (there is no jail in halacha)  as far
as I know the bet din does not take into account that the family who are
innocent will also be punished.

If someone is sent to "ir miklat" the yeshiva goes with him, we don't
remove the punishment because it affects the whole community
