She's obviously never heard of the safe haven law. I am upset by this. A 25 year old and a couple of other twenty-somethings? and none of them heard of the Safe Haven Law? None of these nitwits thought let's drop her off in the hospital? They're all a$$holes if you ask me, and all 3 of them should be charged.
yes, a desperate young pregnant woman may not be making much sense, but her 2 sisters???? One of them had to be sane. I can't believe them... they give Brooklyn a bad name.

From October 2012:
A first-degree manslaughter conviction of a Brooklyn woman claiming amnesia in the death of her newborn has been tossed by the state Court of Appeals...
The state’s high court ruled Wednesday that prosecutors “failed to provide credible” evidence that Sergio killed her baby... The appellate judges noted paramedics called to her home testified that she couldn’t walk, let alone cut the umbilical cord and dispose of the baby outside...
Initially, Sergio’s sister, Andria, was charged with improper disposal of a human body, and her other sister was charged with obstructing governmental administration in connection with hindering the investigation. Charges were dropped against both sisters.
