Judge jails woman convicted of starving boy to maximum of 10 to 30 years
"This is starving a child over a series of years," Assistant County Attorney Alysia Cassotis said Monday, adding when the boy was 6 1/2, he weighed as much as a 10-month-old.
Bail conditions require that Thomas have no contact with the boy or his family, as she deliberately targeted the boy, Cassotis said.
The judge asked if Thomas could offer any mitigating factors in the case.
"I'm asking hard questions, but this is the time to have a discussion with me," Lewis said.
"I have remorse for some things I have done," Keable read. Thomas maintains her innocence.
Keable argued a sentence of 2 1/2 to 10 years would be sufficiently stringent, but give her an opportunity to stay connected to her six biological children.
Lewis said he felt serving at least 10 years behind bars would give Thomas a controlled environment in which to seek rehabilitation.
Lewis encouraged Thomas to take responsibility and stay in touch with her children.
"It's not the end of the world if you're 44 when you get out," Lewis said, adding she can still have a relationship with her children while in prison.
Falsifying physical evidence and perjury are Class B Felonies, which could each result in 3 1/2 to seven years in jail and a $2,000 fine.
