Morphine in the breast milk

Police: Mom poisoned baby to get attention:

Creepella over there is 25-year-old medical assistant Sarah Rose Dillard-Lubin (Hasenfefer Incorporated) of Aloha, Oregon. She’s been charged with putting morphine in the breast milk for 2-month-old daughter. She allegedly did this to get the attention of the baby daddy.

This isn’t the first time she allegedly did something like this. In 2006 in California she pleaded no contest to giving her then 10-month-old son opiate pills in order to get the attention of another baby daddy.

It never ceases to amaze me how selfish people can be by putting their children at risk over romantic relationships or the lack thereof.

Meth Milk Mom gets slap on the wrist

Mother of baby killed by meth-contaminated breast milk gets 90 days:

46-year-old Maureen Hoffart of Sacramento, California was convicted of her baby’s January 2008 death after the baby died from ingesting meth tainted breastmilk. Mom is a tweaker obviously. But instead of getting a real sentence to send a message to meth heads and drug addled parents a judge only gav e her 90-days in jail…

Earl said from the bench that Hoffart had plenty of mitigating circumstances working in her favor. Among them, the judge noted, was a minimal criminal history that consisted of two methamphetamine-related arrests that were more than 10 years old. The judge said Hoffart has strong support from family, friends and other community members and that a former kindergarten teacher wrote a letter to the court on her behalf characterizing the defendant as a good mother who volunteered at school and provided her children with a “supportive academic environment.”

That’s all well and good but a baby died because of a mother’s meth addiction. We need less feel good judges and more of the hanging variety.
