Assumeing no foul play was involved.....is it really necessary to charge the mother with anything? She has this to live with the rest of her life. Is that not punishment enough? I don't know the people and probably never will, but how is causing her to have a criminal record going to make anything right? It will only add unnecessary complications to her already troubled life. I guess where a child is concerned, society demands some blood letting and revenge even if it is not justified. It gives them a warm, fuzzy, artificial feeling that everything has been made OK.
