The victims - Nancy's sons are adults now - have requested that she be released from prison. Her youngest son testified at the hearing that he and his brothers never wanted their mother in jail, as she was a victim, too. What they wanted was to be protected from their father. As I recall, at the hearing the prosecutor explained that he had recently met with two of her other sons, who said basically the same thing. In seeking the victim’s side, the article quoted someone unrelated to the case, but the son's own testimony on behalf of his mother was not mentioned.
Just goes to show you how the abuse tainted their minds, they actually think that this mother loved them. Sorry but I don't think they are in the right frame of mind. NO MOTHER, and I mean no mother in the world battered or not should allow any harm to her children, it's just not normal, I would prefer to be beat to death before subjecting my children or participating to any of this crap. She does not belong in society!!!

You kno wht i feel for those boys for i am very close with all of these boys until this day. They are all still very traumatized by this. One of the boys has 2 kids of his own and loves his fam dearly but is struggling with life. Has stress. Depression and anger issues. These boys were seperated from eachother and were punished for there parents acts. There mom is far from innocent from past conversations there mother was involved in acts wen there father wasnt around. They all have issues. And i think these boys should have seen some money for there stress and depression and the pain they had to deal with. So for the ones sayin that nancy is innocent and has been tqaking classes and is going to be apart of there childrens lives is wrong. Its been almost 20 yrs u really think there gonna run up to there mother and hug and cry. These boys had everything taken away from them. These boys deserve to be happy and try and live the rest of there lives to the fullest.

And people saying that they want there mother out of there and theyve never wanted her in there is bull. Why dont these boys visit her nor do they write and they havent in a while. They have family still out there but no one is apart of there lives. There fathers side of the family has helped more than there mothers side. Its just sad that they dont have any love from there own family. The boys were released from dss custody and moved to nashua with there aunt.. Then her aunt decided to get up and move to florida. Dss was coming back for them so a couple of them took off no were to go and got into drugs. They made some mistakes got into it with tha wrong people. But they didnt know were to go wht to do. Like they needed this in there lives. Is just sad i feel so sad for them. They are all seperated today and havent been able to build that brother relationships with eachother. I still know that they are still very affected by all this still. Anyways now that im all riled up about this. I think everyone needs to put your self in each of there shoes for once and see the pain with your own eyes. They have more to worry about than there mother trying to get out. What is she gonna get out and give everything back to them. She think everythings just gonna go away. Lol think just please do this once for me and pretend ur one of them for just a few minutes.

i am one of her sons everyone saying tht we never wanted our mother in prison is wrong. my mother is in there claiming batterd womans syndrome and she even knows thats not the case. she was told to do what some of things she did. but she didnt fight it. she abused us as welll when my dad wasnt around. now hermother and her new wife basically calling us liars. its disgusting. i dont want any part in this any more. i could careless if shes in there the rest of her life. she thinks shes gonna get out and were all gonna be family again. we were ruined because of this me and bros all face obstacles because of it. i told my mother to tell the truth and she think shes getting out so she will deny it. i didnt want it to come to this but when we got our fam calling us liars that hurts. poor ma all the time shes been through hell. what about us. no one knows our pain and on top of tht have no family that care. so ma u know the truth and if you do love us like you say why dont you be a mother and say u werent forced u had a choice and u chose not to help us.

Deb Sorry to read that you say you new her and moreover you sound as if she truly was a victim! After Nancy willingly allowed the murder of (Nikki)OUR first and last child together to go unpunished she no longer was a victim but a willing participant to any further actions that Nancy witnessed and or participated in from that point on and regardless to any abuse Nancy may have suffered,A Mother's first priority is always the child. Clearly in Nancy Brogna Bock Attkinson's case her children's welfair was not and is still not her priority.(R.I.P.Nikki Lee Bock 1979-1984)"Daddy will always love you". May god bless and guide Nikki's 1/2 brothers with love in there sole and hope in there hart.

I'm confused by all these comments about being close to the boys.... my good friend happens to be dating one of the four boys &from what I have gathered, she deserves to rot.

What lying sacks of crap their lawyers are, saying that the children were influenced by social workers. I was at the hospital when the boys were brought in the night before Thanksgiving- trust me, there was definitely child abuse going on and those boys were definitely traumatized. If she gets out of jail claiming abuse, then justice will not have been served in my opinion. Corby and Nancy Atkinson should NEVER see a moment of freedom again in their lifetime.
God Bless their boys, who are all adults now. I hope they are doing well- I've wondered about them over the years. Broke my heart, especially the youngest son.
I was there neihbors when this happened. Corby was very good at hiding this noone seen this coming. The sons now live in the Nashua area and are all as far as I know drug addicts and in and out of jail.
