Mom gets 20 years for smearing feces on daughter’s catheter

Mom gets 20 years for smearing feces on daughter’s catheter
Monday, April 4, 2011,

A woman who police say was captured on video smearing feces on her 3-year-old daughter’s catheter pleaded guilty to injury to a child today and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

State District Judge Julie Kocurek sentenced Emily Beth McDonald, 25, under the terms of a plea bargain that McDonald, pictured below right, reached with prosecutors.

McDonald, who cried briefly during a short hearing, did not say anything before she was taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies.

Outside court her lawyer, Bob Phillips, attempted to explain her behavior. Phillips said McDonald was “under extreme psychological stress” at the time of her crime, stress he said was brought on by factors including fatigue and depression

Wow! Munchausen by proxy.
I've seen this a couple of times - but smearing feces on an IV catheter that leads directly to the heart? This takes the cake.
Poor child - I'm glad she's out of the clutches of this sick, sick woman.

Oh, I remember this. There's a thread for this story somewhere on WS. I'll never forget the pictures of this sweet child. She reminded me of Tinkerbell. so tiny and cute. Thank heavens she survived. What this so called mother did to her was inconceivable.

I'm not sure how I feel about this [unusual person] receiving only a twenty-year sentence. What she put her child through seems like it should cost more than twenty years.

Here's the original thread. When you see the pictures of the little one she did this to, you will become inflamed.

I don't get it either. And it's one of the few things I am glad I cannot comprehend.
JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
