    Mom gets 99 years in prison for gluing tot's hands

    Mom gets 99 years in prison for gluing tot's hands - Yahoo! News

    DALLAS (AP) A Dallas woman who beat her 2-year-old daughter and glued the toddler's hands to a wall was sentenced Friday to 99 years in prison by a judge who described his decision as a necessary punishment for a brutal, shocking attack.


    Elizabeth Escalona did not immediately react as State District Judge Larry Mitchell pronounced the sentence at the end of a five-day hearing. Prosecutor Eren Price, who originally offered Escalona a plea deal for 45 years, had argued that she now thought the 23-year-old mother deserved life.

    Mitchell said his decision came down to one thing.


    "On Sept. 7, 2011, you savagely beat your child to the edge of death," Mitchell said. "For this you must be punished."

    The beating left Jocelyn Cedillo in a coma for a couple of days.


    Escalona's other children told authorities their mother attacked Jocelyn due to potty training problems. Police say she kicked her daughter in the stomach, beat her with a milk jug, then stuck her hands to an apartment wall with an adhesive commonly known as Super Glue.
    For once I agree with a ruling from Texas. What this thing did to her daughter is torturous to the point of attempted murder. People like this should NOT be allowed to have children.

    I've been following this on my local news ... I am glad she got 99 years..... I shudder each time I think about that poor child and what she went through at the hands of this monster.

    Should have been death, IMO. This girl is lucky to have survived.

    I support the ruling as well. I would personally also like to see labor camps for prisoners with this woman sent to one of the harshest ones.

    I wonder how many months she will actually have to serve and how long after she gets out the child is returned to her.

    I just hope that the child is young enough to be placed in a loving home without having to remember the trauma of her abuse.

    I keep telling people.

    Birth control should be mandatory for people until they complete a 2-year course on parenting.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'll be a devils advocate here. I understand the personal gut instinct to want to inflict as much punishment as possible, it's natural for us to seek retribution and to fuel or indignation through it. But is society best effected by sending her to prison essentially for life? Is this women likely unreformable? Will she realistically seek to better herself, treatment, etc if she knows that she has no future? We've created a permanent ward of the state and added another life time member of our broken prison system. Obviously this is an easy case to jump on, but gratuitous sentencing with no real discussion over what the purpose is of imprisoning people is something that bothers me.

    The title of the article is a bit misleading. 99 years for gluing your childs hands...that might be a wee bit extreme. 99 years for beating your child into a coma...maybe not near enough.

    I never fail to be shocked at what some parents can do to their children. Stomach turning. I hope she never breathes free air again.
