Here’s the story of a very NOT lovely lady:
A woman goes to a video poker house in the early summer of 1998 (in South Carolina). She leaves her infant daughter strapped in her car seat in a CLOSED CAR!!! The child dies within two hours of dehydration. The woman, who’s afraid her husband will get upset with FOR PLAYING VIDEO POKER, leaves the establishment. SHE HASN’T NOTICED her child is dead!!! In fact, she doesn’t notice that the child is not breathing unitl 11:00 that night!!!
She takes the child to the hospital, but it’s way too late. She is arrested for involuntary manslaughter and is jailed. Today, after entering a guilty plea, she is sentenced to TIME SERVED and 5 YEARS PROBATION!!! In a picture in the local paper, she and a friend can be seen SMILING and LAUGHING after leaving the courtroom.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???
Sorry for the screaming caps, but I just cannot fathom this whole thing! Anybody else out there come across such a travesty?
I haven’t seen anything this insane since the woman (also in South Carolina) drown her two children because her supposed boyfriend once mentioned he didn’t like kids.
If you were the judge, what would YOUR sentence for this woman be??
