Jeanine Lansdon plead guilty
to child endangerment and received a ridiculous sentence of only five
years in prison and while she didn't actually hurt this child, she
didn't do anything to help him either. She deserves MUCH more than the little time she
will actually serve with time off for good behavior and any other
stupid reason she will be out for. Jeanine told the court that she had
witnessed Johnny slamming Maxwell's head on the floor and against a
grate and that Johnny was upset that the child was eating in bed.
Lindsey Marie Eyer was 26
years old when she said in court that she had made terrible choices
that had lead up to the death of of Maxwell adding that she loved her
son but was afraid of Johnny. It came out in court that Lindsey had
been told the Department Of Children And Family Services NOT to allow
Johnny around Maxwell since he had been injured under suspicious
circumstances three months earlier. Lindsey told the courtroom that she
had not taken Maxwell to the hospital because Johnny told her not to.
Circuit Judge Charles Romani listened as family and friends of Lindsey
told him that she was a good and caring mother. Luckily Judge Romani
wasn't buying it saying that it may have been true at one time, but not
"There is no excuse for
your actions and inactions on that day"
I disagree with the Judge on the next point, that is when he told
Lindsey that he felt she could be a responsible citizen and a good
mother to the other two children she has, if she got some help. What is
up with that? She has PROVEN
that she CAN'T
be a good
mother, that she will allow a man to let her make bad decisions about
what should and should not be done. God help those two children if she
is ever allowed to raise them again, because apparently the law isn't
on their side.
Lindsey plead guilty to child endangerment and was also sentenced to a
ridiculous sentence of five years with credit for 225 days she spent in
jail before she had bonded out. She will have to serve only half of
that sentence before she becomes eligible for parole.
Johnny Garcia was 24 years old when he plead guilty to first degree
murder and his sentence to 44 years in prison. Johnny was able to make
a plea deal that would get him no more than 50 years. Prosecutors had
asked for the full 50 years while the Defense Attorney John Delaney was
asking for only 35. Ali Summers, the Prosecuting Attorney brought up
the fact that this was not the first time Johnny had abused this
precious little boy and that Johnny had been breaking the law for as
long as he had been an adult with convictions for burglary, criminal
damage to property, aggravated domestic battery against Lindsey and mob
Associate Judge James Hacket was reported to say that the way Maxwell
was treated was difficult to comprehend and unbelievable.
In May of 2013, Dr. Gita Malur, who was practicing out of of Alton
Pediatrics on the Alton Memorial Hospital Campus as well as being on
staff at St. Anthony's Hospital, had her medical license suspended for
on year after an investigation said that she failed to report the
suspected abuse of Maxwell.
Thank you to Cat for always
thinking of the children.
