A Grave Memorial
is horribly wrong and sad that in this
day and age a woman can
that she shook her child, the child dies and the
woman is found not
guilty of the charge she faced, deliberate
homicide and instead be
convicted of assault on a minor. When a child is
abused and dies as a result of that abuse, that is
assault, that is murder and the person who does
the murdering should NOT
ever be free to walk the streets
On September 18, 2012, Jasmine Nicole Eskew's
daughter was taken to the
emergency room with Jasmine saying that her
daughter could not breath.
Doctors examined Brooklynn and tests revealed that
the child had a
bleed, police were called for suspected child
abuse. Brooklyn was flown
to Spokane, Washington where she died two days
later. Jasmine told
Police that her daughter had been crying so she
picked her up and shook
her. Jasmine was arrested and held on $100,000.
In April of
Jasmine was pregnant
with twins and was released from jail on her own
recognizance. Due to a
medical condition, Jasmine had been hospitalized
since February of 2013
and was expected to stay in the hospital until she
gave birth, which
would be in June of 2013 and she was expected to
be arrested when she
was discharged from the hospital, her trial was to
begin in September.
In her opening statement, Jennifer Streano said
told the jury:
are going to hear
that Jasmine was a loving, caring mother for
Brooklyn. This child was a
the whole family"
Prosecutor John Parker stuck to the confession
that Jasmine had made
when he said:
diagnosed as non accidental trauma. Which is
child abuse. Her mother,
was the only
person who admitted to physical harm that day"
In April of 2014, even though she had admitted to
what she had done to
Brooklynn, Jasmine Eskew, who was 23 years old at
the time, was found
not guilty of deliberate homicide, however, she
was convicted of
assault on a minor. Public Defenders said in court
that Police had
asked leading questions that caused extreme
emotional distress on
Jasmine and that was why she had confessed, at one
point, the Lawyers
tried to say that the injuries might even have
been inflicted on the
child by the man who Jasmine had been dating for
only two weeks.
Jasmine hugged her mother after the verdict.
The lead attorney said that her client was often
looked at as socially
impaired by those who know her and that she was
easily manipulated into
admitting something she had not done:
say they do things they didn't. Nothing
indicates she was shaken.
What Brooklyn had was
a massive skull
So, the child had a skull fracture and that means
the doctors are
wrong, she didn't die of shaken baby syndrome?
You're an IDIOT
Sentencing was set for May 21, 2014 and on that
date, Jasmine was
sentenced to only five years in Montana's
Department Of Corrections
after Judge Sandefur confirmed that Jasmine shook
Brooklyn, but that
the state could not prove it caused her death.
After the verdict,
Jasmine said that she wishes she had told police
that her boyfriend was
there when Brooklyn was injured, but she was in a
so she lied and said he wasn't there. Jasmine said
she regrets that she
will never be able to
hug her child again and that she misses her. Well,
all I can say to
that is, let's hope if you have any more children,
or are ever allowed
to raise your twins, that they make it out of your
note: I do NOT
know who wrote this obituary,
but I find it an insult to Brooklyn that it says
she is survived by her
mother who misses her greatly. I wish these
obituaries would tell it
like it is, her mother caused her death, even
though a bunch of IDIOTS
on a jury said she only
assaulted her. Put two and two together and the
assault caused the
