    TX - 2-Year-Old Boy 'Was Tortured', San Antonio, 2005

    SAN ANTONIO -- An investigator with Child Protective Services testified Wednesday that a 2-year-old boy "was tortured" when he was critically injured in late November.



    CPS investigator Charles Paul testified during a custody hearing of Jonathan Lassetter, who remains in critical condition at University Hospital.



    Paul said that the infant suffered "multiple bruising throughout his body," including the buttocks, penis and anus.



    When asked by a prosecutor if the infant "suffered greatly" when the injuries were inflicted, Paul replied, "I believe the child was tortured."



    At one point during Paul's testimony, the infant's mother, Deserae Lassetter, who made a court appearance via closed circuit television, cried as she listened. Upon the advice of her lawyer, Deserae Lassetter did not testify at the hearing.

    I can't even imagine torturing an animal!!

    Cases involving torture, abuse, neglect... to a child should be a mandatory death sentence (after some torture and abuse).

    Mom, cry all you want, if you did nothing to stop it, you're just as guilty, IMO.

    She cries for herself.

    She had no love or compassion for her son or he wouldnt have been tortured.

    According to her MySpace, the mother is not only pregnant again, but has contact with those kids - I think she might actually have them back. That bothers me - children are such blessings, which so many other, more worthy families can't have; once you let people torture them, you've lost your chance IMO.

    From bad to worse! How could they let her have the kids?

    I hadn't read about this case the first time it was posted. It makes my heart break to think that the children could be back with her. How can they ensure the safety of the children after something like this happens?

    Yes - http://www.myspace.com/zachrysgirl - I was just googling the case to see if I could find out what became of the little boy, and what the result of the trial was.

    This is outrageous if she was found guilty - does anyone know the verdict(s)?


    EDIT: Found some answers to this... That'll learn me to read to the end of the thread.
