Shortness doesn't help in jail, but height alone doesn't determine how tough someone is. One of my friends is 6'4" and is really skinny, but I don't see them withholding prison sentences for people who are skinny. It's never been a concern of how well you'd hold up in jail and it shouldn't be a concern now just because someone is 5'1".
Also, I'm fairly confident that Mr. Thompson didn't take his victim's (presumed) physical inadequacy into consideration when he sexually assaulted her-- twice.
