A Grave Memorial
Jessica Hunt started her car and put it in
reverse. Jessica Hunt, who was 25 years old at the time, was under the
influence of several drugs when she got behind the wheel of her car
that day. Jessica Hunt, ended up backing
over her four year old son. Justin Oaks was taken to University Medical
Center, where he would die from his injuries. At first, police would
not say for sure if Jessica had been under the influence, eventually,
the truth would be told:
of being under the influence and being negligent and backing over her
she was charged with second-degree murder and child abuse"
Sgt. Diana Lopez - Tucson Police Department
Jessica called 911 at about 5:00 p.m.
after she backed over her son. Neighbors said that Jessica was not
inside the car when it backed over son, that she had just put the car
into reverse and then realized the car had backed over her son and she
began to scream and call for 911. When
they arrived, she kept yelling at them to hurry:
"He was knocked out. A
couple of seconds after it happened, he lifted his head, looked around
just put it back down.
And he was in a puddle of blood"
Christian Gonzalez -
Sgt. Diana Lopez said that being under the influence makes this a crime
as opposed to when a family member
accidentally runs over a child:
"When you're under the
influence, it's just different, it's against the law to be behind
the wheel under the influence. And when that leads to the death,
especially of your own
child, it's even more tragic"
Jessica was charged and booked into the
Pima County Jail though she was later released on $250,000. bond.
Justin's best friend, is also his cousin,
Saphira, her father said:
"I just, I didn't know how I was gonna break it to my daughter that her
best friend was gone.
She heard everything and she brought it up to me, you know, Jr. got hit
by a car, said he got
ran over, she was gonna miss him. But she hugged me of a little bit.
Don't take anything for
granted, cause you never know when your kids are gonna be gone and it's
just gonna be you.
Always pay attention"
Derek Oaks - Uncle
Derek said that his brother, Justin,
Justin Jr.'s father, was devastated:
would you go through if you lost your child, your reason for living,
your best friend"
Derek said his
family has a strong belief in God and they know Justin Jr. is in Heaven
and his brother has forgiven Jessica for what she did.
for Release 8/12/2011
Date of the notification
to CPS: 5/30/2011 In June of 2011, Jessica admitted that she
had been on Cocaine, Crystal Meth, Methadone and Xanax on the day she
backed over Justin. That same month, the Pima County Attorney's
Office dropped the charges against Jessica, though they were dropped
without prejudice, which means
Jessica could face charges at a later date if they decide to charge
her. No explanation was given as for why the
charges were dropped.
This makes no sense to me, a mothers does ILLEGAL drugs, backs a car
over her son and he dies and she walks away free? No justice for Justin
Jr., that is what that means.
I found these online posts of Jessica's:

was February 9, 2009...Then two years and three months later:
Justin Mitchell Oaks Jr.
OAKS, Justin Mitchell
Jr., four years old, was taken from us too early on May
30, 2011. Loving son of parents, Justin and Jessica, Justin Jr. was
loved by everyone he touched. Funeral Service will be held at EAST LAWN
PALMS CHAPEL, 5801 E. Grant Rd., on Friday, June 3, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.
Interment to follow at East Lawn Palms Cemetery.
I am unable to
find any postings from her about what she did to him just three years
later. I may seem to be cold
about this, however, this boy is dead because his mother selfishly
chose to do illegal drugs and he ended up being the one to pay the
price. She basically got away with killing her
son. I am sure some will say "She's going to suffer for the rest of her
life", I highly doubt that, though I
could be wrong.

occurred in the
state of Arizona
