Prison is way to good for her. Why should she get a warm clean place and 3 square meals a day? She need's to be hung by the neck in public. Drugs and alcohol is no excuse. I would like to do that too, but I have to work for a living. And do not tell me alcoholism is a disease, because it is the only one you can by off the shelf.

All I can say is that if the cortland county department of social services was involved it is a shame that they did not know what was going on. Protective child enforcement ought to be ashamed of themselves. Tells me they werent doing their job and as far as the mother and boyfriend go those kids should not be sent back to them after that. They usually recommend counceling, parent classes come on people WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!

Seems to me the school where the 11 yr. old and the 12 yr. old went to would of sent up a red flag to the teachers or someone at the school. Are they also slacking.

I hope that mother never sees those poor children ever again. Those kids did nothing but be kids, and for a parents to treat their kids like that should be in jail for the rest of her life. That mother doesn't deserve to be a mother. and for her boyfriend, he is just as guilty as she is, he knew what was going on and did nothing. They are both sick people. I hope cortland cunty court and the poeple all realize both of these people need to be put away for ever!!!!!

The mother and boyfriend deserve to be in jail. They were both in the wrong. You can't tell me that they didn't know they were starving their child! And the obviously shouldn't have kids if doing drugs and drinking are more important to them! So yes I agree that the mother and boyfriend both need to be in jail for the REST OF THEIR LIVES.

Why is it that also, DSS is involved and there is a woman LuLu Mudge here in Cortlad that had her kids taken away because of her drug past she gets them back, claims to be clean gets public assistance etc. Then after getting the kids back moves a man in from Utica that has a violent crime past, he just got out of jail, again, for assault. She moved him in! Someone should be investigating that as well. That man shes with Maurice has been in prison for Drugs and assault on woman. His name is Maurice Judon. Drugs and Violence around the kids she had taken away, but lets not pay attention, but keep giving her money to do whatever. Look into it DSS, look into it....

ppl with drug history should not be permitted assistance. its just a gateway to return to a habitual pattern.
