Can you believe this? I thought I read it wrong! http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbc.../70412002/1086
A mother put her baby in the oven and turned it on. The plea bargain that she "reluctantly accepted" was for 2 years probation and parenting classes! HUH??????????

Shouldn't the first rule of parenting class be: Don't stick your kid in an oven and turn it on?

Sorry, just had to poke a bad joke.

This is so sad.

That makes me want to put HER in an oven, slam the door shut and turn it on! And the judge who made this decision can cook NEXT to her!!!

What the heck is wrong with the "justice" system?!?!

What the random expletives!?!?

A *PLEA* bargain for this psycho? I don't understand plea bargains to begin with. If you say you're innocent and are found guilty, have fun rotting for the whole sentence handed down. If you just admit that you did it, you'll get off easy. Well I'm glad to hear that we reward people for telling the truth.

But especially in this case, what she did is just imagineable, and the fact that she has known substance abuse problems, she should be in a mental hospital and never be allowed to see her kids again and should be forced to have her tubes tied.

I agree with GingersMom actually though..she should be sentenced to 425 for a half hour per pound.

That is just insane. She got a slap on the wrist and she tried to bake a baby!

Because that is how our society is today. Let her go with a slap on the wrist, even though what she did was abhorrent and insane. Cruel, evil, vile, and something ANY woman (mother or non-mother) gets very riled up about.

Let the criminals have more rights than us... yup... that's America.

I do wonder though, will she get preggers again? And consider baking that baby if she gets mad at Daddy?

Or will she do the honorable thing and visit her OBGYN for a tubal?

Hopefully any men who come near her know her name from the news and don't breed with her. Icky women like her don't deserve babies.

Would struck me as odd was that the full sentence would have only been five years. I'm wondering if it was so light because the child didn't actually sustain injuries? I don't think it said. No matter...either way, she should be in prison.

And if I read the article right, the Judge (a woman!) is the one who reluctantly accepted the plea deal, not the idiot on trial.

You're right, the judge did say that. I must have read that part wrong. I was curious too about the full sentence and if the baby had sustained injuries, but I haven't found anything else out yet.

Yes, this is how the American judicial system protects the most precious and innocent of its inhabitants. Lets them be killed and no recourse.

It is the liberal, slap-on-the-wrist judges that do this, it is very apparent to me.

Actually judges and other legal personnel operate within the guidelines of the law. It's the laws that need to be changed, not the people who operate under them.

Judges do have some discretion and this case, to me, is just absurd. The woman should be in prison, or institutionalised, IMO, but the law doesn't always allow for that and prisons are packed to overflowing as it is.

The justice systems of the world need to be brought into the 21st century and thoroughly reviewed and overhauled, so that things like this just can't slip through the cracks anymore. Basically, she denied doing it, it was a charge of child abuse not attempted murder, I would imagine as far as sentencing is concerned the judge didn't have a lot of room under the statutes and limitations of the law.

This is a failure on a number of levels, seemingly. I think an attempted murder charge would have been more appropriate, but then, I wasn't there.

Judges have tremendous latitude and we all know that.
I have actually seen juries convict parents of murder of their children and the judges overturn the juries conviction. Bill O'Reilly is CONSTANTLY outting the liberal judges and confronting them for letting kid killers and pedophiles go with probation. It is so disgusting it makes me sick.
It is the judges IMO.

You don't hear about things like this on the networks.

Actually, Cindy, my brother is a crown prosecutor and deals mainly with prosecuting paedophiles, and has done so for 20 years. He is well known in Western Australia for having put hundreds of the away, and our state newspaper just did a big story on him. He's my hero, but aside from that, he told me something in passing years ago which illustrates what you're saying.

He was prosecuting a grandfather who had sexually abused his youngest grand-daughter. Things were going well and it looked like a conviction was going to be the outcome. In the judge's final address to the jury, the judge virtually instructed the jury to acquit because he implied that there really wasn't anything wrong with what the accused man had done. It wasn't that obvious, of course, but the meaning was lost on nobody in that court room, and the man walked.

My brother almost quit his job that day. But he didn't, and one day he will be a judge himself, and you can bet that kind of travesty will not occur in his court.
