I found this disturbing that this woman walks free and is given a three yr suspended sentence after leaving her mother to die on the floor, police found her a week later. I get that she fed her and covered her iwth a blanket but to leave her there and not seek help? Her mother musthave died a horrible death Seems wrong on so many levels. What do you think?

the ruling is disgusting. I dont give a shit what your conscious says , how bout the law buddy... as a judge you interpret the law, not your conscious. ffs, i wonder if it was his mother she left rotting on the floor if his concsious would have felt the same way........

and exactly ditto on what if it was a child...

people boggle my mind, they really do.

Sick and disgusting and if it had been a child she would be going away for a long long time. That judge is a sick and twisted man.
A woman's last hours of life were spent in sheer misery and torture because her own daughter couldn't be bothered to call for help or seek outside advice. I really don't give a rats ass that she had OCD and didn't trust the medical community. If it were her CHILD no one would ever accept that as a defence.
She should go away for manslaughter and inhumane treatment of another human.
I only hope that she lives her remaining days tormented by dreams and visions of her maggot infested mother laying on the floor dying.
Sick sick woman.

Why would someone leave a person on the floor to die for a week? A parent at that. That is sad.

As a daughter, there is absolutely no excuse for this, if you are afraid of authority then have someone else call...she should be under the jail

This woman is obviously a fucking idiot. Why would you leave someone on the floor for a week?

I am horrified! I don't understand how anyone could do this. Since there is "no evidence that she had ever suffered from a psychotic condition that might have affected her judgment." I feel the judge has gotten it wrong!
