Diana N. Molina
September 18, 2000 - July 23, 2003
Find A Grave Memorial

When Doctors examined two year old Diana, who arrived not breathing and with no pulse, they had been told that she had fallen down the stairs at home. Of course being Doctors, they were able to establish that this was a lie. Germai Molina, who was 23 years old at the time, would find out that Doctors are able to figure out if a injuries are the result of a fall or child abuse, unfortunately, Diana's injuries were caused by child abuse.

Germai was upset that his daughter had wet her bed and began to hit her with a belt. In court, Germai would tell the courtroom that he came home and found his daughter covered in bruises and bleeding. Germai claimed that he went to his wife, Diana N. Molina, who was 23 years old at the time and the mother of the child and told her:

"I don't know how they do it in El Salvador, but in the U.S., this is child abuse"

In August of 2004, Claiming that his wife had been the one to inflict the injuries on their daughter, Germai was crying as he told the jurors and the entire courtroom that he had lied because he didn't want his wife to get into any trouble. Diana had already testified that her husband had beaten their daughter and dropped her on her head between 10 and 20 times, all because she wet the bed.

Germai told the courtroom that just a few hours before she died, Diana had been playing basketball and when he got home, she was sleeping and woke him up about 3 a.m. saying she had to use the bathroom and that he had noticed even more bruises on her body and that when she started down the stairs, she fell. Germai obviously forgot that his original testimony to the police was completely different. In his original statement, he stated that he HAD hit his daughter with a belt because she kept having potty training accidents, though he had also told them she has fallen down the stairs.

Diana C. Molina struck a deal, in which she testified against her husband, she was sentenced to four to five years for felony child abuse resulting in serious injury. Diana was given credit for 430 which she had already served in jail and she would be eligible for parole in the year 2005. In January of 2006, Diana C. Molina, who was by then 26 years old, was released from prison on what is called a "mandatory discharge" and she would be deported back to El Salvador.

Diana had given up her rights to her other child, who had been in the room at the time her sister was beaten to death, though she was only nine months old at the time, that second daughter was in foster care. Diane and Germai were divorced in August of 2005. The U.S. Immigration And Customs Enforcement had a hold on Diana and it was believed that she was taken into custody to prepare to be deported, after leaving prison.

Germai Molina, who was 29 at the time, was found guilty of second degree murder and felony child abuse and he received 80 years to life for EACH of those convictions and would have to serve them one after the other, meaning he would never get out of prison alive, which is how it should be, though he had been told he could show portions of the tape in court. Germai also claimed that his counsel was ineffective and that he was not protected against double jeopardy when he was sentenced for both counts and asked for a lawyer to represent him.

I will NEVER understand how KILLING a child can result in a charge of injury to a child, there should be no way to get a better deal by testifying against someone else, she deserves to be in prison for the rest of her life!

In August of 2011, Germai was trying to get out of prison by filing a petition for habeas corpus, which is the right to seek relief from illegal detention. Germai had filed two appeals and both had been rejected by the Nebraska Supreme Court. Germai said that his constitutional rights were violated when he denied the right to show a taped interview of his wife to the jury. In June of 2012, the petition for habeas corpus was denied by Judge Warren K. Urbom.

Disgustingly, another child without one picture available, except of a grave.
