Tabitha Pollock was sleeping when her live-in boyfriend, Scott English, killed her 3-year-old daughter, Jami Sue, in the early morning hours of October 10, 1995, at their home in Kewanee, Illinois.

The following year, a Henry County jury convicted Pollock of first-degree murder and aggravated battery based on the prosecution's contention that she “should have known” English posed a danger to Jami Sue's life. The judge sentenced Pollock to 36 years in prison.

The Third District Illinois Appellate Court affirmed the conviction in 1999, even though the trial judge had observed during a post-trial proceeding that Pollock “did not commit the act of killing, nor did she intend to kill the child, nor was she present in the room when her boyfriend killed the child.” Read Appellate Court Opinion

After the lawyer who had handled the appeal told her it would be hopeless to appeal further, Pollock wrote to the Center on Wrongful Convictions at the Northwestern University School of Law. A law student read the letter and took it to Center staff counsel Jane Raley, who agreed to represent Pollock.

Even though the deadline for filing a further appeal had passed, the Illinois Supreme Court agreed in 2001 to hear the case and in October 2002, unanimously reversed Pollock's conviction, holding that a defendant cannot be convicted on an accountability theory based on what he or she “should have known.”

I see your are talking to yourself again. You aren't very good at that whole "get a clue" thing are you?

I guess you haven heard that another court disagrees with your delusion.

A jury UNANIMOUSLY convicted her and a judge sentence her to 27 year. She had appealed and lost TWICE and her secound appeal was DENIED.

She's KNEW her daughter was being abused, just like you knew your kids where being abuse. The ONLY difference is her daughter was beaten to death and she got caught Your children managed to srrvive and you did not get caught.

Smith will be in prison, EXACTLY where she belongs, until July 16th 2010. You can post all the blaming, vile lies and rants you want but it can't change the TRUTH.

Healthy my butt! Unless you don't think that marrying a KNOWN RAPIST and letting him play DADDY to four young children is normal and a perfectly reasonable choice? We all know that your kids where subjected to a LIFETIME of your craziness and dysfunction because we read what you did in your 100's of TOPIX posts.

You are telling me to mind my own business while you have you big nose jammed so far up everyone else's business I am amazed that it has not been pulled of you ugly face.

I would take parenting advice from Diane DOWNS before I would take it from YOU! SO, you crazy old bitch, YOU mind YOUR own bussiness and keep my kids out of your crazy ass posts or I will sue you for everything you own.

Nobody is going to hide the truth about me and my children under a rug, Erica, you need to speak of your own business, my children are not your business.
you have no right to tell me to not talk about my children.
Of course that is your job as a foster mother, to take over other people's children by lying about their mother, I have seen too much of your kind. unfortunately.

California

Almost 50 abused or neglected California
children died last year in foster care after
the state took them away from their parents
for their own protection, according to child
advocates who started counting because
the state does not keep track.

The tally by the Children's Advocacy
Institute is the first measurement of how
many of California's most vulnerable
children die while under the state's
guardianship.

The institute, based at the University of
San Diego School of Law, also found that
more than 60 children in foster care died in
2004. California has about 75,000 foster
children, one-fourth of the nation's foster-
care population.

Some of the children died accidentally or of
natural causes. But others were neglected
or abused by caregivers. The causes of
death were not included in the study.

The death count includes children such as
Dylan James George, 2, whose foster
parents have been charged with fatally
beating him in their Fremont home in 2004.
Anthony Cortez, 15, was choked to death
by another child in a Stockton group home
in 2003. Four-month-old Christopher Battie
died of sudden infant death syndrome in a
Fresno foster home in 2003.

Data comparing the death rate for children
in foster care to the death rate for children
overall were not available because the
state has not compiled updated mortality
statistics for the general population.

The California Department of Social
Services collects data on how many
children in foster care statewide are
injured, but not on how many die.

Advocates said a failure to monitor deaths
in foster care could hamper efforts to
improve the system. The state failed a
federal review three years ago in part
because children were not being kept safe
enough after being removed from their
homes.

"It just makes common sense that the state
should be tracking and aware of how and
when their children are dying, and if there's
anything they can do to stop that," said
Christina Riehl, an attorney at the
Children's Advocacy Institute.

Riehl said the institute started its count
after a state law went into effect requiring
counties to release the name and date of
death of each child who dies while in foster
care. The group compiled the data by
submitting requests to each of California's
58 counties.

Mary Ault, California's deputy director of
children and family services, said the state
reviews individual death reports and has
monitored fatality trends through the Child
Death Review Council.

"I believe the more facts we have, the more
information we have, the better we're able
to manage for better outcomes," Ault said.

The review council, composed of
representatives from different state
agencies, looks at records of all child
deaths in the state and issues periodic
reports. But there is a lag time of several
years before each report is released, and
the council does not specify how many of
the children who died were in foster care.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services determined last year
that the state was violating federal law by
failing to publicly disclose information about
deaths and near-deaths of children due to
abuse or neglect.

Threatened with the loss of federal child-
welfare funds, the state this summer
started requiring counties to file reports on
such incidents. The reports are supposed
to be filed on all children, not just those in
foster care.

Ault said the state would be able to use
those reports as a tool for improving the
system.

So far, one report has been filed. It
describes the drowning death of a 2-year-
old girl found in a hot tub in Orange County
in July.

The report said Orange County social
workers had investigated several reports
that the girl's parents had neglected her
and had placed her with her grandparents
for several months while both parents were
incarcerated. When the girl died, she was
back in her parents' custody.

erica,
you need to retract those harmful statements.
too many people love to hurt women and children. they don't need your encouragement with your savage lies about me.
you need to focus on the foster children who hopefully will get enough love from you to be able to share with their children that they may have when they grow up. Share your success.
you have really gotten worse since the birth of your last baby. I seen that.

There's an EXACT re-post of the post where YOU tell the world you married a man who raped me. If you were lying when you posted it, you have a serious problem. Maybe you need to get off the computer and get HELP?

You claim you have EIGHT CHILDREN now but you CLAIMED you had FOUR when you MARRIED THE RAPIST (in you EXACT words) because "I didn't want to be alone".

GET A CLUE! NO ONE CARE about your nutty opinions or your filthy lies.

And sorry, I don't know the names of any of your four ex husbands. Only that YOU have posted that one of them was a murderer and one was a rapist.

Maybe YOU should keep information about YOUR sordid past PERSONAL? Or at least keep track of what you post so you don;t end up getting caught lying and having to threaten people who come her to tell people exactly what sort of person you are!

he wasn't a known rapest, in fact he has no record. I married him 30 years ago, and left him four months later
Keep digging that hole you started with your FIRST LIE!

LOL, he wasn't a "know rapist"? According to your own posts he RAPED YOU!

You have also claimed in other posts that he got you pregnant by RAPE twice. How did you have TWO children with him in four months? A cat can't even have two litters in four months!
