More charges may be filed.

From link above:

The injury to a child charge, a first-degree felony, could later be upgraded to capital murder, which is punishable by death or life in prison, said Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey.

A capital murder charge is possible because state law allows that charge if the victim is under age 6.

"As in any case where the potential for capital murder exists, the evidence will be seriously scrutinized by our office prior to making a decision," Healey said Tuesday.

the article said it would most likely be upgraded to Murder, but they have to have the evidence tight..so until they are done investigating the charges will stand..

A child is 8 times more likely to be abused when there is a boyfriend or stepfather in the house. These mothers should be charged with something. When you have a young child to care for, the last thing you should be looking for is a boyfriend.

I am so sick of hearing this. Most of these severe abuse cases are always done by boyfriends.

I am going to sign up and train to be a child CASA advocate out here for cases that generally will involve some sort of abuse. You better believe that if there is a boyfriend in the house, I will take that into consideration when I do my reports.

Where is the fathers of these kids at?

What can we do to prevent this in the first place? I'm thinking mandatory parenting classes in high school. Sure, not everyone wants to be a parent but many become parents willingly or not. Educating about how likely it is for an unrelated male (and sometimes females) to abuse children would be a good thing, too.

I think it's great that you are going to train to be a child CASA advocate. Is that for the courts?

Your question about where the fathers are makes me think that if the biological fathers were involved with their children, these boyfriends might think twice before taking their anger out on children.

Yes I am going to be a child advocate for the courts on a volunteer basis. We work in conjunction with CPS but CPS is so terribly shortstaffed they assign a CASA to a case.

I am a mother of a 2 year old and I know how precious and how dependent children are.

These women that get these loser boyfriends often have a track record of making poor decisions. The dads sometimes get the short end of the stick as in most cases mom gets custody. In cases where dad is not involved at all, it is even worse.

The legal standard of being a parent is VERY low. Personally if we could sterilize these woman that would solve alot of the problems.

Just my , but between this story and another thread about a child whose sperm donor "father" slammed her against a sink and used a cattle prod on her among other things, I'm thinking our legal system needs some direct and clear-cut sentencing for those who abuse children under age 3 or so. As in, try the abuser and if he (or she) is found guilty, the sentence is an immediate and unappealable LWOP (or DP--makes no difference to me).

It won't stop irresponsible mothers from exposing their infants and toddlers to predators (because that's what these men are), and it won't act as a deterrent to the predators, but at least it offers some level of automatic justice for the victim. You cause injury or death to a small, defenseless child because of your rage or dysfunction or substance abuse or whatever and you forfeit your own existence. No excuses, no extenuating circumstances.

Thanks for letting me rant.

I like the idea of an automatic sentence for abuse of a very young child. Too many idiots out and living among the rest of us. Guess we'll have to build more prisons at the rate these things are happening though.

I vote for automatic death penalty. Something has got to get into these losers' head....KILLING BABIES IS NOT ALLOWED!

Amen to that! The most important job in the world (parenting) and any idiot can have a try. I wish we could sterilize these women, too!

OT and I know this was an old post, but I'd like to thank the poster for this message as it is a severe eye opener for me. I have a 3 year old daughter and I'm 7 months along with my 2nd daughter..my 3 year old's daddy passed away last year, but he had very good intentions of being a good dad - may he rest in peace.

When I was 5 months along, the father of my 2nd baby left me without another word..moved in with friends, got himself a new girlfriend with a felony record, got himself into his own trouble with the law, changed his number, and refuses to have anything to do with me or the baby. Most everyone I know has advised me to seek out child support and hold him responsible for what he's done. In recent weeks on one of his many drunken nights out with his criminal girlfriend, he's called me from a private number to berate me, make fun of me and my "bastard children", tell me how I'm so awful and restraining (because i wouldn't allow him to drink, that made me a horrible g/f) that my first babydaddy killed himself (not true) and then passed the phone to his new girlfriend to brag about how she caught such a "prize" and to tell me she'd love to kick me in the stomach and give me a homemade abortion. I dismissed all these actions as being those of an alcoholic and someone who's obviously running scared at the responsibilities of becoming a father..because at first when he found out, instead of saying he didn't want a child - he proposed to me and bragged about becoming a dad. Now I'm looking at these actions in a much different light thanks to Websleuths and the content posted here by members such as you.

I will not be putting his name on the birth certificate. I will not seek child support. It isn't worth it to me to potentially risk someone who so obviously does not want and probably cannot be a dad hurting my child, or allowing his immature, criminal, and spiteful girlfriend to hurt my child either. Thank you for opening my eyes on the alarming fact that not everyone has the good intentions in their heart I like to think they do.

To add to that, I've been thinking during my pregnancy about how depressed I am that he could do this to me..and how I can't wait to get my body back so maybe hopefully I can find someone to take my mind off of him and distract me from my depression. Not anymore. Forget a boyfriend, forget moving on from him..I have two little girls who mean more to me than myself or anyone/anything else..and if something happened to them, I'd probably turn homicidal - just being honest. Simple pleasure like dates, attention, and sex are just that - SIMPLE pleasures. Not in the least comparable to the "highs" and the joys I feel knowing I've done a good job by my daughters and that despite not having fathers, they are loved immensely and will always be well taken care of so help me God as long as I'm alive.

So, thank you again. Amazing how eye-opening and therapeutic reading other people's thoughts can be. God bless our children.

Who will stand up and speak out for the most precious and innocent of victims, as it's obvious our judicial system will not?

Perhaps is there was more vigilante justice it'd send a message to the supreme court?
