    Peppery linked an article including the court action Termination of Parental Rights. Never heard of a reversal, I suppose that's possible. Imagine that poor kid going to preschool, telling what's happening at home?

    Am I alone in expecting a claim that one parent abused/threatened/controlled the other to the point that the other parent was powerless to change the situation???

    Claim, mind you. Claim.

    JMHO YMMV

    Allegations of Neglect Predate Sherin Mathews' Death: ADA

    In a statement released late in the afternoon March 1, the Richardson Police Department said they developed sufficient probable cause to obtain the arrest warrant against Sini and that the case was approved by the previous district attorney and an indictment was returned by a grand jury

    What about Mama Sini? Isn't she going to be charged with anything?

    ." Defendant and Sini Mathews did not disclose these injuries for at least one week. The history provided to doctors was not consistent with how the injuries occurred."

    I can't even say what I think without violating TOS. Poor little Sherin. This is so wrong.

    MOO.

    So Sini is going to skate? Damnit! I'm wondering about a couple of things:

    1. Does the prosecution need Sini to testify against Wesley (as also mentioned by rosesfromangels upthread?

    2. Can the DA charge Sini with something else down the line, like neglect or abuse? I see no reason not to and additional evidence may come from trial testimony.

    In the future when Sini applies for a nursing position, I certainly hope the potential employer uses Google as a screening tool.

    Is she still an RN, eligible to be an RN, with charges dropped?

    @meanmaryjean

    laws vary from state to state, but what's your take on Sini's professional future???

    Surely she is a Mandated Reported who did not report?

    Yeah, what they said...

    There is something seriously upside-down with all of this.

    Isn't there a "duty to report"??

    She is a mandated reporter who did not report. I don't see anything on the TX Board of Nursing website- however that doesn't mean it's not been reported. It just means it has not come up for hearing yet. (I think)

    I searched here <Nursys® > under "Sinitha Matthews" which I believe to be her legal name- and found she has an unencumbered license in both Texas and Illinois. No person with a similar name shows up in any state. So maybe no one has filed an official report just yet? Maybe someone needs to?

    Failing to report abuse resulting in the death of a child *should result in license revocation. Permanently IMHO

    Thank you!

    The pediatrician abuse expert who ordered the skeletal scan seems to be an good candidate for reporting this situation.

    Well, the pediatrician was more focused (rightly so) on the child than the professional licensing status of the parents I suspect.

    DA: Sherin Mathews' father caused her leg fractures, deleted his browser history
    Posted May 29 2019 12:34PM CDT

    DALLAS - Prosecutors want the court to consider more wrongful acts when the father 3-year-old Sherin Mathews goes on trial.

    Wesley Mathews is charged with capital murder for his adoptive daughter’s death. She was reported missing in October of 2017 and found a week later in a drainage culvert near her Richardson home.

    After her body was found, police said Wesley admitted to moving her body. He claimed she died when he forced her to drink her milk. More at link . . .

    I’m still so confused about the dismissal of Sini’s Charges. They both loved with Sherin, they were both responsible for her well being, they both failed her Miserably.

    after investing $$$ and flying half-way around the world to pick her up.

    I said this waaay back -- if they had stopped the adoption process when the birth daughter was conceived or born, not one of us would know their names.

    This whole thing is just mind boggling. And expensive adoption and then he does THIS? And Sini gets off scott free? Didn't she take custody of the child at adoption too? Just sickens me to think how this beautiful little girl lived.....and died.

    They wanted her dead a long time ago: "He also canceled 19 physical therapy appointments and eight speech therapy appointments for his daughter ..... Sherin also didn't show up for four appointments that weren't canceled."
