    That came from early reports. Some said "male friend" and some said "boyfriend." It was also reported that Hawkins' friends (not named) said she and Isaac split up over her involvement with Franke.

    Substitute "close male friend" for boyfriend and my comment still stands. They were clearly closer than acquaintances. Franke accompanied her to the hospital with the girls when Hawkins claimed they were at a park with the girls and both collapsed after smelling flowers.

    It's that time of the year again.

    I will never believe that anyone "accidentally forgot" their young children in the backseat of a car (but they never forget their cell phones).

    I'm sorry but this makes no sense at all. Yes, the 16 year old boy should have done something. However, many 16 year old boys know zilch about kids. Maybe he turned on the car for himself when he was in it, then secured it when he left. Maybe they really didn't make any noise.

    EVEN IF THEY DID, their MOTHER is the one who knew for sure they were in there and refused to let them out. What about the friend who wanted to bring them in? Why aren't they charged?

    The MOTHER should be charged with murder before anyone else. This wasn't a momentary lapse because of a change in routine. This was intentionally leaving your two precious babies in the car to cry and then bake to death.

    Maybe if they were both charged with murder.... but just him? Not okay.

    Ah - plead guilty to ALL charges. I think she got lucky not to be charged with murder....

    Mom who left kids in car for 15 hours, killing them, pleads guilty to all charges

    KERRVILLE, Texas - A 20-year-old woman who left her two kids in a hot car for 15 hours, ultimately killing them, has pleaded guilty to all charges in connection with the fatal incident.
    [.....]
    According to Hill Country Breaking News, Hawkins will be sentenced by a judge Dec. 12 on two counts of abandoning or endangering a child and two counts of injury to a child.

    Amanda Hawkins sentenced to 40 years in prison; Updated Article

    KERRVILLE, Tx (HCBN) – After a long day of testimony with multiple witnesses, tears, anger, sadness, and shock at times, Amanda Hawkins was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
    The presiding Judge Williams handed down four sentences of 20 years each, with two sets of them running concurrent. The two charges regarding Addyson were ran concurrent (where they are both served at once), then the two charges regarding Brynn were also ran concurrent (where they are both served at once). The judge stacked the charges related to Addyson and Brynn, making them consecutive and totaling the actual sentence to 40 years.
    [.....]
    A17-597 ABANDON ENDANGER CHILD IMMINENT DANGER BODILY INJ – 20 YEARS
    A17-599 INJURY CHILD/ELDERLY/DISABLE RECKLESS SBI/MENTAL – 20 YEARS
    To be ran concurrent, which means the 40 years in these two sentences is actually 20 years.

    A17-598 – INJURY CHILD/ELDERLY/DISABLE RECKLESS SBI/MENTAL – 20 YEARS
    A17-599 – ABANDON ENDANGER CHILD IMMINENT DANGER BODILY INJ – 20 YEARS
    To be ran concurrent, which means the 40 years in these two sentences is actually 20 years.
    [.....]
    Judge Williams said during sentencing, “Those precious little girls would still be here today if this had not happened,” and then told Amanda that he would have given her more of a range of punishment if it were possible.


    a lot more in the article!!

    Wow! Yes, there's a lot more in the article and definitely worth reading. What an evil, selfish woman.

    This sums Hawkins up:
    Texas mom sentenced in deaths of toddlers inside hot car
    I me, my, what I feel what I want. She's affected for the rest of her life? Yeah but only because she'll spend much of it in prison. I hope she's too old to bear any more kids when she gets out. Bah. Good riddance.
