TOTALLY BARBARIC SENTENCE – SHE IS GUILTY YES-BUT THIS IS VERY WRONG
I am writing this as very good friend of mine has had her life torn apart by what I personally consider a total set up.She lives in PA and has a daughter who is in her mid 20s .Sadly this girl a number of years ago fell in with the wrong people and got addicted to drugs.She had three children who her mom took from her and adopted as she was not caring for them.A number of months ago this girl attempted to rob a elderly ladies handbag from a Walmart store.She failed and ended up kicking the lady who broke her hip.However she did recover and was back to independent living and driving thankfully.
The young woman who assaulted her was arrested and held in jail until her trial yesterday.However it is not straight forward Within a few days of been incarcerated she found out that she had Breast Cancer in Both Breast and also had Stage 4 Cervical Cancer.As if this is not bad enough she was also pregnant.To find out all of this and to be alone in jail is horrific for anybody.She is due her baby on November 11th.Since her incarceration she has been totally clean off drugs and has had no issues.Her mom found a lock down rehab that would enable her to get medical treatment for the cancer,have the baby and learn how to be a parent as well as be educated .It was not a holiday camp it was jail time but at least she would be helped.
Yesterday she was in court and what happened makes my blood boil and my stomach sick.The PROSECUTOR was the SON IN LAW of the woman who got injured so he wanted justice,The PUBLIC DEFENDER is this womans neighbor.And this young woman was told that she will now serve 6-12 Years in Jail,Have NO COUNSELLING—ALL HER PARENTAL RIGHTS REVOKED —NO REHAB–.When her daughter is born she must be alone her mom is not even allowed to be there with her,she will have a C Section and a Hysterectomy at the same time.Once her daughter is born she will not even be allowed to touch her no contact at all.Her mom has 3 hours to get to the jail to get the baby or it goes to care.
Now I am sorry but yes she is guilty of the crime but this is sick and disgusting.A young girl was never ever given a chance in that court room.She had no legal rep for her as they were both related to or friends with the victim.She if not treated will die from cancer alone,.A jail sentence yes by all means,medical care she should be entitled too and to see and hold her baby at least once is a human right.This girl has had everything in life taken from her what has she got to live for .Yet a Teacher in another state who RAPED HIS STUDENT AND SHE THEN COMMITTED SUICIDE GETS 31 DAYS IN JAIL-
If there ever was a miscarriage of justice then this is it.That DA and the Public Defender should be totally held accountable for their actions and bias in court and the judge should have known better.Media outlets you need to help this girl and her family,she was wrong we are not denying that but this is a sentence from the stone age and very very wrong .
