I was at the hearing today, 2-19-2010. The prosecution was pitiful. They only presented circumstantial evidence, and were not ready for rebuttal. The defense was ready to present its case with witnesses to prove Ms. Tripps innocence, and show that fatal accidents unfortunately can happen to children. All the hear-say that the prosecution claimed only let me now that this case was not well investigated. They assumed Ms. TrippÂ’s quilt and that led to no further investigation. While she rots in jail. The hearing is postponed until March. Is this justice in the USA in 2010?

I hope this ends with her being exonerated. I know her very well and I know she is innocent.

I dont care what none of yall say, yall dont kno what happened was not there and dont kno here like that. Things happen it could have happened to anyone and i bet if yall was in her shoes you wouldnt be saying things like that about yourself. She is a wonderful woman and the god mother of my child. You shouldn't judge a book by its cover like i said before things happen and it could have happened in the hands of someone els as well so STOP BASHING, you think she dont feel bad enough.... anyway WE LOVE YOU MS. TRIPP AND WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

I was personally incarcerated with Tripp and she is a sweet and caring woman who wouldn't hurt any child. This was clearly an accident based on all of the evidence. Before you start bashing read into things, even the mother of the child is on her side saying her child was known to bang their head into objects and the injury was sustained days before the child was dropped off at the house with Tripp. READ YOUR FACTS
