This is a case where even those supporting conditional sentences are appalled. It makes a mockery of the ideology behind it.

It isn't a deterrent? That may be true but so what? She isn't a further danger? No one really knows but again so what?

Detterence & rehabilitation are only some of the facets of the justice system. The other facet is punishment. She deserves punishment for what she has done and the punishment shoulkd fit the crime. Such an act of child abuse requires a lengthy jail sentence and a life time ban from being around children.

I agree with the author of this article on all points.
This woman is sick and twisted, this ammounts to more than just abuse, it's plain torture for this poor child.

Yeah, that's just as puzzling as the sentencing. The kid she burned is older now than she was when she did it... weird.

What a weird article...

First off, it's an opinion column, not news. Second, is it recent news? It happened in '97, when was this sentencing? If the sentencing was in '97, did the fact that the girl was 12 have anything to do with the sentence? Where there any other conditions to the house-arrest? If the sentencing just happened, why did it take so long? Why was a 12 year old dating a guy with 2 kids?

Found the same article in Todays Winnipeg Sun

Seems there was a typo when Canoe reprinted it...

Magan Marie Muir, now 24, was supposed to be caring for two children in 2007. Instead, she took the hands of two-year-old Damon Reddom Stone -- her then-boyfriend's son -- and plunged them mercilessly into a pot of boiling water.


Makes a little more sense - was as much sense as this situation could :wink:

You beat me to it. [B-o]

Conditional sentences are a good idea if they applied and administered properly but the problem has been that judges are handing them out like candy, hence the new restrictions and mandatory sentencing that are being introduced. It's too bad that some judges can't seem to use some common sense.
