New Bern, NC These kind of cases really get to me. In 2012, Amanda Reed (formerly Amanda Stumpp) was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the drowning death of a child under her care. While babysitting 19 month old Sadie Gates, Amanda thought it’d be a great idea to take pills and smoke pot. Sadie managed to get out of the house while Amanda was high, and ended up drowning in a ditch. That’s a horrible way to die, and Amanda should have been thrown in prison.
But no, Amanda received a suspended sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
Flash forward to May 2013: Reed took her daughter, 22 month old Mercadiez, outside to their swimming pool. Amanda Reed then had the great idea to leave the child unattended. Guess what happened?
The child drowned.
Reed was arrested and charged again with involuntary manslaughter. Yesterday, she was acquitted on that charge, but sentenced for misdemeanor child abuse charges. The first time got her a suspended sentence She as very lucky. But not now, the hammer of justice has fallen and stricken her down. Amanda Reed has been sentenced has to do some seriously hard time: a whopping 75 days in jail.
WOW. Imagine how much the world will have changed by the time she makes her return to society. The temperature will have dropped by 30 degrees, there will be after Christmas sales going on, Valentines candies will be on the shelf, football season will be over, I mean we’re talking a total shell shock. She will have learned a hard lesson and will come out of her sentence into a world she will no longer be able to recognize. Truly, the punishment has fit the crime.
