    FL - Brittany Lester for child abuse, St Petersburg, 2011

    Okay, this is a weird one. Mom sends texts and pics to ex, pretending to abuse their 1 month old baby. LE found the baby and her 3 year old unharmed. Mom is charged anyway - I assume because of the staged pictures she put the baby in.

    Woman, 20, accused of taunting ex-boyfriend with photos, texts of child abuse

    Posted: Aug 18, 2011 01:45 PM


    The messages were accompanied by equally disturbing images, police said, of the baby in a variety of staged positions: upside down in a trash can, shoved under two motel mattresses and lying down with a cell-phone charger in his mouth, police said.

    One picture, according a police report, shows Lester apparently choking the child, and another shows him with a plastic bag over his head.

    Lester was charged with aggravated child abuse and held without bail.

    There are some very sick people out there. I fear for this baby and his sister. Sad.

    This story is very strange. I am so glad that they found the children unhurt and took custody. I am also glad that the maternal grandmother declined the offered custody of said children. Something not right with the whole family is my guess.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!

    Now there's a catch 22! the things people will do just to hurt thevery people they had children with sickens me!
    It's just MOO. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and it surely won't be the last!

    This doesn't sound fake to me, it sounds like very real child abuse. What a horrible thing to do to both baby and dad!!

    I agree - putting the baby in the trash can and under the mattresses etc - the things she did for the pictures - very real abuse. I just couldn't think of quite how to word what it was that she did. My poor choice of words.

    that was real abuse IMO. putting a plastic bag over such a tiny one's head long enough to snap a pic, why take risks like that?

    I agree! Even if mummy didn't carry out the abuse, and it appeared staged, it's still abuse IMHO. You don't put a bag over a baby's head, put a baby in a trash can, or between two mattresses and not call it abuse. The baby may not have been physically harmed, but you can't put a child in those positions/conditions and call it parenting.

    And who's to say she wouldn't carry out the real act of danger a week or two from now.

    I'm glad she was busted, and I hope the baby finds a more loving and secure home.

    JMHO.

    I hope those 2 little ones get adopted by loving people and never go home to this nut case......and I am expressing that because I fear that on our judicial system she will get probation and then want her kids back.

    we'll be hearing about her again for sure ... I fear she'll go on to hurt children (hers or others) in a very permanent way in the future
