About danged time. I started Crime Library's coverage of this case, as I was already wondering in July of 2006 why there'd been no arrest. I did a blog entry about this development tonight, and included a story I was sent by a person who alleges he was assaulted by Alex Midyette in 1997:

http://crimeblog.us/?p=409

I almost made a morbid joke about wondering where the teenaged Alex was in December, 1996. His daddy J. Nold Midyette was, after all, the landlord for John Ramsey's Access Graphics. But I decided not to go there... yet. The Ramseys may not have known the Midyettes outside of that arrangement.

Either way, I still see a few -- and I emphasize, just a few -- parallels between JonBenet and JJ.

Thank goodness! I have kept up on every update from Crime Library since the story broke.

I had read something that the father was very upset at the hospital and that the mother was more concerned for her marriage than the welfare of her own child.
Leads me to believe she was the abuser and was worried the husband would leave her. Although, broken bones in different stages of healing would say he had to know about the abuse.
From the autopsy report, it appears there was no visible exterior injuries to baby Jason.
I am happy they finally arrested them.

Please, please, please put those parallels together for total enlightment.

Like I said, there are just a few -- but both children were from good families with money, both children may or may not have fallen prey to their own parents (I'm on record everywhere as not being one who thinks the Ramseys did it, but there's still plenty of people who do think so), both children's murders were subject to a long drawn-out investigation by the Boulder authorities. A fruitless investigation for JonBenet, apparently a successful-enough investigation for JJ.

Differences are major, too -- JJ was an infant and not the victim of a sex crime, and JonBenet was in school already and may have been the victim of a sex crime. The Ramseys initially appeared to cooperate with the investigation before unchaining the lawyers, the Midyettes were super-quick on the draw with representation.

There are other ties, some of them cause & effect -- I have to think that the fiasco of Boulder's investigation into JonBenet's murder influenced the handling of the Midyette investigation. Once again, a child from a well-off family was dead under highly suspicious circumstances, and the world might just notice -- surely Boulder authorities thought at some point: "let's get it RIGHT this time."

In 1996, Alex was a teen, near driving age, and his father and John Ramsey at the very least had a business acquaintance with one another. The odds are in favor of that just being a passing coincidence. Still -- I'd like to know if the families socialized. I'd like to know if Alex could have been around in December, 1996. One of JonBenet's injuries was a major blow to the head, and blows to the head killed JJ. I'm pretty sure that in the late '90s and early 21st century there have been at least two other unsolved attacks in and around Boulder that involved victims being beaten savagely about the head. I have an account on my blog from someone who claims the then-17-year-old Alex Midyette didn't hesitate to reach in his car and beat the crap out of him, focusing on his face and head.

Then again, if you read one of the most recent Crime Library articles by Chuck Hustmyre, people at the hospital felt the stranger member of the couple when Jason was brought in was Molly, not Alex. Chuck interviewed someone who said Alex's reactions were much more "appropriate" to the situation than Molly's.

The Boulder Grand Jury indicted both parents, and Alex had the higher bail. So whatever was there, it was serious. I think the ties to the Ramsey case in the end will be purely tangential, but not so minor that they should be ignored.

And I doubt I clarified anything, but whaddya want, I haven't had any coffee yet :)

Carroll: The lucky couple
Friday, May 11 at 12:00 AM
Molly and Alex Midyette should get on their knees every night and thank whatever providential power they might believe in for having the good fortune to live in Boulder County. In almost any other jurisdiction, at least one of them would very possibly be in jail.
Rather than traipsing about the Erie community while being monitored by an ankle bracelet, the suspect would be counting stale hours from the confines of a cell.

But the Midyettes are lucky. They live in a county where the district attorney is the feckless Mary Lacy, engineer of last year’s fiasco involving John Mark Karr as well as other assorted public travesties. And so, when a grand jury under the care and feeding of her office finally got around this week to indicting the two with child abuse for the death early last year of their infant son, Jason, the most serious charge was a Class 2 felony.

Now maybe you think that eight to 24 years, the normal range for a Class 2 conviction, minus “good time” of course, is a punishment fit for the crime. If so, you should read the grand jury’s indictment.

There you will discover that at his death, 10-week-old Jason had more than 20 broken bones “in various stages of healing,” including breaks in his arms, legs, ribs, hands and feet. His skull had been fractured, too, with a “complete loss of gray-white interface involving the cerebrum,” which is as bad as it sounds. And he had “contusions on the right and left temporal lobes of his brain” that were “older than other hemorrhages found in Jason’s brain.”

You will learn, too, from the testimony of an expert at The Children’s Hospital, that while many such injuries are fairly common in serious child abuse because of “abusive squeezing,” “violent shaking” or “twisting or pulling forces applied near the end of a bone,” the “hand and foot fractures are very uncommon, and are likely the result of a direct blow.”

Only one conclusion fits this sickening set of allegations: Jason was not dropped or bumped and thus bruised and broken by accident, or even in a single violent fit of quickly regretted rage. He was roughed up repeatedly, brutally, and without anyone reporting a single incident either to a doctor or a cop.

Makes you want to cry. Some couple in Denver were charged with murder and not released on bail, when their abused child died....but not in Boulder.

Well not for the rich in Boulder, whom Mary Lacy bends over backwards to protect, though she is supposed to be the DA!

But then again Mary has ties to the Midyettes, and as she will retire soon, I'm sure Mary is looking out for her 'future' career, rather than the innocent life of a little abused baby.

By Christine Reid, Daily Camera
May 14, 2007
BOULDER - The solidarity of Alex and Molly Midyette - charged with child abuse resulting in the death of their 10- week-old son - could prove to be prosecutors' biggest challenge, according to legal experts.
Beginning Feb. 24, 2006, when they took their only child to the hospital, the parents have refused to talk to authorities. They retained separate lawyers after the death of their infant, Jason, and have continued to exercise their constitutional right to remain silent ever since.

It took five months for the Boulder County coroner to determine Jason's death was a homicide after ruling out a medical malady. It took a grand jury another six months to return an indictment last week.

The Midyettes, who have moved from their former Louisville home to Erie, continue to back each other and are supported by their families, as evidenced by their court appearance last week.

Surrounded by family members in Boulder County District Court, the Midyettes held hands during the hearing, and at one point Alex kissed Molly on the forehead. According to one of their attorneys, the couple are eager to fight the charges against them.

Former Adams County District Attorney Bob Grant said determining the facts in such a case can prove difficult for prosecutors.

"It's not unusual where there is little evidence other than that which comes from both parents in a child-abuse case," Grant said.

And if they aren't talking, he said, it can be a nightmare to try to determine exactly what happened and who may be more culpable. A prosecutor in such a case ideally would like to identify the parent with the lesser role and have that person testify in exchange for a deal, Grant said.

According to local news, today Molly Midyette testified why she took her son into the doctor's office rather than the ER.

Molly Midyette is charged with fatal child abuse in the 2006 death of 10-week-old Jason Midyette, who had a head injury and more than 30 broken bones. Prosecutors accuse her of waiting too long to get medical help for Jason.

Midyette said she and Alex Midyette, her husband and Jason's father, went to Dr. Jill Siegfried's office because they thought they would have a long wait with a lot of paper work at an emergency room.

"It seemed like the faster option with Jill," she said. "They had all information, and all we had to do is pay copay and go to Jill's office."

12-20-2007, 05:00 PM
"Molly Midyette called an e-mail she wrote days after Jason' birth a "very goofy, very embarrassing thing."

The e-mail, written to a former boyfriend read: "I'm in the hospital right now (your favorite place). I got in a real bad car accident (not my fault)."

It detailed injuries Molly said she sustained in the accident, including a punctured lung and broken ribs. She reported she needed 45 stitches on her belly.

"All that working out and the bikini body has a scar," the e-mail said.

There was no mention of her Cesarean section or her son Jason in the e-mail.

:liar:

"I had put on so much weight while pregnant and had some serious body image issues," she told jurors. "I was terrified of how I looked."

Midyette said that she and her old boyfriend were still friends, and she sent him the e-mail for some reassurance. She used the description of car crash, she said, because that is how she felt her body had been through during the pregnancy.

"It was really dumb, really embarrassing thing to do," she said. "It's hard for me to describe. I just felt like I looked disgusting."

Midyette told jurors that he responded, made a light joke and told her to hang in there.

"What's next for Molly Midyette: She will be held at the Boulder County Jail -- and not be allowed to bond out -- until her Feb. 29 sentencing hearing. At that hearing, Judge Lael Montgomery will sentence her to between 16 and 48 years of prison. Midyette will then be sent to a Department of Corrections facility in Denver, where officials will decide at which security-level prison she will serve her sentence. Because her conviction is considered a "crime of violence," she will have to serve 75 percent of her sentence before she is eligible for parole."

BOULDER — A screaming Alexander Midyette was hurried out of the courtroom Friday evening after a jury found his wife guilty of child abuse resulting in the death of their 10-week-old son, Jason.

“This is bull----,” he yelled. “She didn’t do anything, you f------ a-------.”

Deputies rushed to clear the courtroom at the judge’s order after a red-faced Alexander Midyette began screaming and pulling at his hair.

As deputies and his supporters hurried him from the courtroom, Midyette yelled over his shoulder to Louisville Police Detective Jessica Steele, accusing her of lies.

Minutes earlier, supporters of Alexander and Molly Midyette began to cry as Boulder District Judge Lael Montgomery read the verdict at about 6:45 p.m. A woman yelled at reporters that they “better write something nice.”

Betcha his rage subsides and he regrets his outburst that Molly did not do anything when his trial rolls around and he tries to save his own butt. Maybe he does not understand that Molly is headed for prison BECAUSE she did not do anything....like stopping his abuse....like heading straight for the Emergency Room?! :doh:

"The conviction of Molly Midyette, Grant said, also sends a message about the way the judicial system works.

"I think one of the undercurrents of this case is that these have been well-heeled, well-connected people," he said. "Some folks probably thought, 'Here's another rich person getting off.' This shows the justice system is sort of blind to those issues."

That's one less shallow, evil person running free. I'll be really happy to hear about Alex Midyette's life sentence without parole, though. He's a rage-filled psychopath, is my bet, and he feels no responsibility for what he did.

I broke this story for the Crime Library, and from the get-go I knew both parents were messed-up somehow, and I also knew that they would think their money could help them out. It's good to see that's not what's going on, so far.

And I want to know more about Alex's past. I'm certain he hasn't only been violent with the child. I hope people have scrutinized his activities in the past very closely.

Let's remember that Alex's Daddy knew the Ramseys. He was John's business landlord. I've always wanted to know just how well the families knew each other. Did they socialize, or anything, stuff like that. Violent, rage-filled psychopath Alex would have been in his midteens at the time.

Just saying I'm curious, is all.

Attorneys say a woman convicted in the death of her infant son say she should get a new trial because she was threatened and coerced by her husband, her father-in-law and their lawyer.....

She claims the Midyette family tried to obstruct the grand jury proceedings in the case in late 2006, when Alex Midyette's attorney, Paul McCormick, talked to several witnesses before and after their testimonies.

Molly Midyette also claims Alex Midyette's mother, Kay, altered a photo depicting injuries of the baby's eyelid and lied to the grand jury about it.

The motion also states Alex Midyette repeatedly threatened Molly Midyette and the well-being of her parents leading up to the trial. Molly Midyette claims Alex's father, J. Nold Midyette, told her not to talk about Alex to her attorney. She says she was told if she did, she could be punished by losing her job, her car, her house and the remains of her son.

"I have never seen anything like the claims being brought by Molly Midyette's attorney," said 9NEWS legal analyst Scott Robinson. "Grand jury tampering, witness intimidation, bribery of witnesses, if even half of what is alleged is true, then Molly Midyette has a good chance of getting a new trial."

The motion claims that during the trial, Midyette family members were in court "texting real-time information back to Midyette headquarters via computer, allowing Alex Midyette, who was waiting outside the courtroom, to confront Molly Midyette at recesses or during lunch breaks."

Attorneys say a woman convicted in the death of her infant son say she should get a new trial because she was threatened and coerced by her husband, her father-in-law and their lawyer.....

She claims the Midyette family tried to obstruct the grand jury proceedings in the case in late 2006, when Alex Midyette's attorney, Paul McCormick, talked to several witnesses before and after their testimonies.

Molly Midyette also claims Alex Midyette's mother, Kay, altered a photo depicting injuries of the baby's eyelid and lied to the grand jury about it.

The motion also states Alex Midyette repeatedly threatened Molly Midyette and the well-being of her parents leading up to the trial. Molly Midyette claims Alex's father, J. Nold Midyette, told her not to talk about Alex to her attorney. She says she was told if she did, she could be punished by losing her job, her car, her house and the remains of her son.

"I have never seen anything like the claims being brought by Molly Midyette's attorney," said 9NEWS legal analyst Scott Robinson. "Grand jury tampering, witness intimidation, bribery of witnesses, if even half of what is alleged is true, then Molly Midyette has a good chance of getting a new trial."

The motion claims that during the trial, Midyette family members were in court "texting real-time information back to Midyette headquarters via computer, allowing Alex Midyette, who was waiting outside the courtroom, to confront Molly Midyette at recesses or during lunch breaks."

Are all states charging mothers who allow abuse to happen to their children, or just a few? It's my understanding that the battered / terrified wife defense is being thrown out in a few courtrooms.

I hope the Midyettes are ALL served justice. If that family have done what Molly says, then they should be punished, but it does not lessen the fact that her only child died when he did not have to and she could have saved him. :furious:

Jury selection in Alex Midyette trial could last into Wednesday

DENVER -- Potential jurors filed into Courtroom 4 in the Denver City and County Building throughout the day Monday, as lawyers in the long-awaited Alex Midyette child-abuse trial began the process of selecting a jury.

About 150 Denver residents called up for jury duty in the highly publicized case began meeting with the defendant, his attorneys, prosecutors and the judge in closed-door interviews inside the stately marble-walled building in downtown Denver.

The one-on-one meetings with prospective jurors are expected to last through Tuesday, with the final stage of jury selection moving into the open courtroom Wednesday.

It's not clear if the attorneys will get to opening statements by Wednesday.

Midyette, 29, of Erie, is charged with inflicting the injuries that led to the death of his infant son in 2006."

Michael Bell was chilling. Who has the cajones to go up to a bunch of men who were shooting and get them to turn over their guns? I lived in the mountains at the time, and while he was on his rampage was the only time I locked the doors.

WTF???? I apologize for that, but that poor baby suffered so much, he doesnt deserve this!! What about the ripped gums in that babys mouth? Thats not metabolic, it is abuse. I found this in the official grand jury indictment: edited for space

" Kay received a call from Alex prior to 2/2/06 where Alex expressed 'concern' about bleeding from Jasons gums. Moly later told Kay about a 2nd bleed from his gums while giving him a pacifier. They BOTH LIED to Kay and said the doctor examined him with a metal probe and said he was 'fine' since it did not pentrate all the way throught the gum. The doctor later testified that not only did they not ask about the gums, but they also said they would NEVER use a metal probe in an infant's mouth." :confused:

I cant imagine how much Alex's dad paid that doctor to say it was definately metabollic. Im sure a PRETTY PENNY! They dont realize they are making a mockery of the medical field by doing this crap. Kinda reminds me of the A case as far as the dynamics between Parents/children/covering up/living in denial about what their monster if a child has really done. My nephew died of metabollic syndrome, and he sufferred NOTHING even close to what Jason did. May they both RIP.

I hope Alex and Molly have EXTREME NIGHTMARES and are haunted for the rest of their lives. IMOO :behindbar :eek:

My thoughts...

I started to read this thread as it was in the *new Posts* section..
I started to feel sick whilst reading them, and decided NOT to click the links, not to read the autopsy report
There is only so much child abuse I can read in a period of time.
Them my interest was peaked with talk of Boulder and JBR
Question : is there a connection in any way between the cases ?

Then I skipped through to the last page and saw the links in regards to metabolic condition, brittle bone disease..
I had my interest peaked , because whilst writing my blog I had come across a case where the parents , the mother , was accused of horrific child abuse , but it was infact brittle bone disease , the children were taken off her and despite her ending up proving that this child did in fact have that , her children had been officially adopted and she could not get them back.

So I was curious as to whether there was any truth in this, but I read a few of the links and to start with I was thinking oh no maybe there was some truth in this, but then no, I read the friends testimony, I read how the parents did cocaine, the father dropped the baby to his wife and other things that made my hair stand on end.

So is this the new defence for abusers ? Brittle Bone disease ?

And what about these experts ? how can they get up and lie BOLD FACED LIE and allow people to get off by telling such lies - do they have no conscience ?
what about the code that doctors take ?


I cant read the autopsy report, I just cant, My heart cant take anymore sadness at the moment, there is just too much of it being inflicted on our babies and children in this world at the moment. I need to bring some happiness into my heart to battle the sadness that these stories bring from these people who are beyond my understanding

The Midyette's were not at the Ramsey Christmas Party although that wouldn't have surprised me now if they had been.

And no - you are not rambling - you are on the right track! Only in Boulder can a wealthy family beat their child to death with either no charges or a small child abuse trial. If you can, please find a copy of the book blowing the whistle from former Detective Steve Thomas. In there, more revelations besides how the Ramsey case was manipulated by the people elected to serve and PROTECT the citizens of Boulder are documented.

Midyette guilty of lesser charge
DENVER – A Denver jury found Alex Midyette guilty today of criminally negligent child abuse in the death of his 11-week-old son nearly three years ago, putting an end to one of the most closely watched criminal cases in recent Boulder County history.

The jury of seven women and five men, who took two days to arrive at their verdict, spared the 29-year-old son of a wealthy Boulder architect and landlord of the most serious charge of knowing and reckless child abuse.

The knowing and reckless charge carries a prison range of 16 to 48 years, while the lesser charge Midyette was ultimately convicted of carries a presumptive range of four to 16 years in prison.

DENVER — A majority of the jury that found Alex Midyette guilty of criminally negligent child abuse resulting in the death of his 11-week-old son wanted to convict him on the more serious charge of knowing and reckless child abuse, several jurors told the Camera on Tuesday.
Following the five-week trial in Denver District Court, five jurors spoke with the media about their experience and what led to their guilty verdict. Justin Kaufmann, one of the 12 jurors, said nine people wanted to convict Midyette on the greater charge and three didn’t.

“It was a tough case,” Kaufmann said. “We couldn’t get a consensus on the greater charge, so we agreed on the lesser charge.”

I cant imagine what was holding the 'undecided', but maybe Big Daddy Warbucks got to them or had ties somehow- He is VERY influential in the land developement/ property/real estate in the area- VERY WELL KNOWN!! Too bad that Molly and this creep couldnt change places- I truly believe he did it all!!! IMO :furious: :behindbar

Alex Midyette remains in jail, set for Tuesday charging

BOULDER, Colo. — Convicted child abuser Alex Midyette remained in the Boulder County Jail on Monday, and is due to be charged with a felony bond violation Tuesday.

Midyette is being held in lieu of a $20 million bond after prosecutors said he violated conditions of his previous bond by dating a day-care operator and hanging out with her children.

CaveMan!!! LOL! Fits him perfectly! I wonder what the new girlfriend is thinking about all of this? I mean, she had to know, unless she doesn't read the newspaper, watch TV, or look on the Internet, and lives under a rock. And DHS has to be looking at the situation because of her daycare license. Thank goodness the ex-husband doesn't live under a rock and called the proper authorities!

As for Molly, well, I think she knows she made the wrong decisions. I doubt her appeal will go anywhere, so she has a very long time to reflect on her decisions. But, she's probably thankful he's someone else's problem and not her's!!!! I know I'd be extremely grateful!

Do you think that maybe Daddy will realize what a loser his son really is? Doubt it, but do any of you locals think that he will bail him out with such a high amount? I dont see him as a flight risk, but I do see him as a scared big mouth who likes to intimidate people. Maybe Bubba will have some fun with him......after all, he is a BABY KILLER~

"BOULDER, Colo. — A defense attorney for convicted child abuser Alex Midyette didn’t ask a judge to reduce his client’s $20 million bond Tuesday, when Midyette appeared briefly for a hearing in the Boulder County Jail courtroom to be charged with a felony bond violation. Defense attorney Paul McCormick declined to say whether he plans to ask for a lower bond, but to do so he would need to file a motion and allow prosecutors time to respond.

Midyette on Tuesday was set to spend his fifth night behind bars since being arrested Friday on suspicion of spending time with young children at the Morrison home of a day-care operator he’d been dating — a violation of his bond conditions.

He will be sentenced on April 20 for his conviction last month of criminally negligent child abuse resulting in the death of his 11-week-old son, Jason.
Midyette, the 29-year-old son of a wealthy Boulder architect and commercial landlord, is scheduled for a May 8 preliminary hearing in the bond-violation case. McCormick told a judge Tuesday that hearing will take awhile because attorneys will discuss evidence spanning a four-month period.

IMO Molly was no better. She had to have noticed the effects of 37 broken bones, but chose to ignore them. Also, she had emailed an ex bf, telling him that her "bikini body" was ruined, not by childbirth, but by a car accident. She never mentioned Jason. Such motherly love-NOT. But, it was never even implied that she dealt the fatal blow to Jason, I think she was at work at the time, but don't quote me on that! I think what attracted these women to Alex was not his balding pate, no-neck Neanderthal looks, and even worse behavior, but $$$$$. Mommy Kay Midyette is another CA, photoshopping the bruise off poor Jason's eye in pictures. J Nold has been fairly quiet, but I'm sure the Alex supporters in the Daily Scamera comment section are family members. I have always thought AM was a huge flight risk-with all that money he could easily go to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US. I am so grateful he's locked up now. Daddy didn't make a bee-line to the ATM machine, either ;) I hope Montgomery uses this new infraction to give him the max in the other case, and runs the new sentence consecutively to keep this creep off the streets for as long as possible. Also, you could only get away with child murders in Colo if you were rich Boulderites. I am hopeful that the new DA will deal with these people harshly, instead of being intimidated by $ like the last 2 DAs in Boulder's recent history. Alex has a long history of being a bully-there was a story about a man named Vlado I think that had an interesting tale about AM. I too hope Alex is suffering from withdrawals, especially from the one called FREEDOM. I think the Boulder LE should be commended-apparently, they have had AM under surveillance for quite some time. I bet they have an airtight case. I do think LM will give him the max. $20,000,000 bond says she doesn't have a lot of faith in the boy :)

Great Points/Post Spamelope!! I sat here sceaming YES, YES!! at every comment you made :)

I noticed in the courtroom pics of AM that he has lost quite a bit of weight (and hair) since Molly's trial. He looked kinda frail in that wheelchair. Im wondering if he was working on this 'injury' since his last trial and that way, when he was sentenced, he could stay protected in the medical ward. I dont doubt for on second that he lost the weight from drug use. Any regular person would lose it from stress, but AM is not a regular Joe in ANY form. Once he hits gen pop in ANY prison yard, he will be a HUGE target. Thanks for losing weight Alex- you will be an easier taget for the smaller guys to get ya too!! ;)

One more thing to add- I think its VERY telling that AM's atty has not filed any motions, etc. He is smart, and probably KNOWS that the judge will stick it to him. He KNOWS he was in FULL VIOLATION of his terms, and has no business asking for a deal. :loser:

Thanks to you and RR, - you two seem to be CO experts and I admire both of your sleuthing skills from here and JBR !! Keep it up! :angel:

Wow, thank you, chico!:blushing: I'm no great sleuth, this case just offended my senses. River rat is probably the best expert on the JBR case that I've ever seen-she totally knows her stuff. I think her siggie pic sums up the entire case-PR wrote the ransom note, which if she did that, she was at the very least an accomplice. I think it was she that killed JB and since she's dead, I think it's like beating a dead horse-almost literally lol. I do hope the new DA gives closure in the case; he seems like a good guy who won't be intimidated by $. As for the M's, that case was appalling in that it seemed that MKL, left to her own devices, would have never even charged the Midyettes. And even then the charges were minor considering it was first degree murder.
My bf works at the state pen, and the days of throwing someone notorious in with the general population are over. It would be extreme negligence-not only can the prisoners sue the state, but the guards individually if something happens on their watch. The recent rulings about inmates' safety have guaranteed that Casey and Alex will never be in general population. Here's a snipped blurb from the Casper the friendly ghost Tribune lol:

By BEN NEARY
Associated Press writer

Sunday, February 24, 2008 2:06 AM MST

CHEYENNE -- The state of Wyoming paid $350,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a former prison inmate who claimed he was beaten and sexually assaulted by another inmate at the state penitentiary in Rawlins. Orchard said he believes those who break the law belong in prison, but the state has a responsibility to treat them humanely.

"Humane treatment of them, and just like the humane treatment of prisoners we're seeing nationally with waterboarding, is an important litmus test about our civilization," Orchard said.

BOULDER, Colo. — The judge in Alex Midyette’s child abuse case will not step down, she said in a Monday ruling.

Boulder County District Judge Lael Montgomery, who is scheduled to sentence Midyette next week for his role in the 2006 death of his 11-week-old son, ruled that the defendant hasn’t proven she displayed an unfair prejudice toward him.

Boulder County District Judge Lael Montgomery ruled that despite Midyette’s March 20 arrest on an alleged bond violation — which came a month after a jury convicted him of criminally negligent child abuse in the 2006 death of his 11-week-old son — his legal team won’t get more time to prepare for his sentencing.

BOULDER, Colo. — In a last-ditch appeal Friday, Alex Midyette’s defense attorney convinced a judge to postpone his client’s sentencing, saying the convicted child abuser has “profound” learning disabilities that need to be evaluated first.

Midyette, 29, was found guilty by a jury in February of criminally negligent child abuse resulting in the death of his 11-week-old son. In an about face Friday, Boulder County District Judge Lael Montgomery agreed to move his sentencing hearing from Monday to May 15, noting that prosecutors had no objection.

Defense attorney Paul McCormick, whose request for a delay earlier this week had been immediately denied, wrote in a new motion Friday that he hasn’t had time to present the Boulder County Probation Department with evidence making the case for placing Midyette in a community-based corrections program rather than prison. He said Midyette’s disabilities should be evaluated by the department before it finalizes a pre-sentence investigation report, which contains recommendations for how Midyette should be punished.

This is one of the up-sides to all of the sad news we read here at WS. I get a kick (please, no dis-respect to baby Jason Midyette in ANY way whatsoever) out of the guilty when they act so tough and BIG and BAD in court and before trial, and then they USUALLY end up waddling away with their tails hanging when they face the music and end up having to live in PC for the rest of their lives. I understand PC is there for a reason, but it seems VERY easy to qualify (most can just say they are scared for their lives or ARE truly threatened/harassed. We ALL know that baby killers/abusers dont rate too high on the popularity charts in the pen. Gosh, I love that saying, 'An eye for an eye'..........

AM is an EVIL monster, IMO, and NEEDS to be incarcerated in a locked down facility. He is a ticking time bomb and I am SOO thankful that his new GF found out what a monster he was. How could she NOT know who he was or the fact he had major legal trouble ahead? He is NOT good looking, IMO, so was she in it for the party supplies that he seemed to always have? How could she allow those children to be around him and play with him, knowing what he was convicted of ? I have heard NOTHING but nice things about this woman (will keep name out since I havent seen it posted a lot here), yet how DUMB can she be? Every comment and blog I've read about her has positive things to say about her charicter(sp?). :waitasec:

Hopefully AM will keep that bottom bunk for the duration of his stay in the big house. I hear it makes it easier for people to come and tuck him in at night and give him a kiss goodnight like mommy and daddy would...:other_beatingA_Dead. Sorry, I couldnt help that one :shutup:.

Boy, he is sure working that wheelchair- Im sure its to keep him in the medical ward where its not so 'rough and scary for AM. Anyone know how he broke his foot? He probably threw a fit when they picked him up and he broke it kicking the squad car...hehe . Anyways, he looks 'scared to death' and PALE as he sits looking frail in his chair- Hope he feels a BIG taste of what Jason had to go thru with all those broken bones!!! He is a BIG BULLY!!!

Here is a much longer article (http://www.dailycamera.com/ongoing-coverage/midyette-baby-death/ci_19180535) in the Boulder Daily Camera detailing Molly Midyette's (maiden name Molly Bowers) bid for sympathy and a new trial. Includes updates on the trial and statements from both sides (defense & prosecution)

They say Molly Midyette was so intimidated by her in-laws that she couldn't tell her own attorney at the time, Truman, about her growing suspicion that Alex Midyette had caused their child's death.

“She had conflicted loyalties,” Truman said. “She was trying her best to help us [her attorney's], but her living situation, her money, her cars, everything, was controlled by the Midyette family. She was trying to balance those things.”

"It's not unusual, after a person is convicted, to come up with allegations against a co-defendant, and I think that's exactly what we're seeing here," Senior Chief Deputy District Attorney Eva Wilson told the court during opening statements.

BTW, Alex (Alexander) Midyette is serving his time at the Trinidad Correctional Facility and Molly is at the La Vista Correctional Facility.

Midyette hearing: Attorney defends his performance, backs claims of spousal abuse

That her original attorney provided ineffective counsel is a key claim in Molly Midyette's request for a new trial in the death of her 10-week-old son at the hands of her ex-husband.

On the first day of a weeklong hearing to determine whether she should get the new trial, Craig Truman supported another of Molly Midyette's claims -- that she was so abused by her ex-husband, Alex Midyette, that she couldn't assist in her own defense -- but Truman defended his own performance as her trial attorney.
http://www.dailycamera.com/boulder-county-news/ci_19186478

What I would love to see is her get a new trial, be found guilty again, and be sentenced again. Does anyone know if she got the max? I don't remember-old age is creeping up on me. :( Go ahead Molly, test out the waters now that Stan Garnet's the DA. No more Midyette pal MKL running the show. This woman is unreal. God forbid she lose her home and car! Don't show her with her baby, the pictures are unflattering! That baby was tortured for all of his short, sweet life. And she knew it. There's no way she was unaware of what was happening. For all we know, she abused him directly as well. The only thing she was afraid of was her gravy train running dry.

I am so relieved and happy at the outcome of this appeal. I felt both parents should have gotten a lot harsher sentences, but at least this is more than I ever hoped for when MKL was DA.

A vigil for a woman who murdered her baby? Speechless.

How about a vigil for the innocent baby. I'm glad the motion for a new trial was not allowed. Even if she was found guilty again, she would still have the luxury of leaving her jail cell everyday, seeing her friends/family, and having the spotlight on her.
