Surprise Stiff Sentence for Daycare Provider in Abuse Case

Full story: Fox4KC 96
A Gardner daycare provider who pleaded "no contest" to child abuse charges as part of a plea agreement received a stunning surprise from a visiting judge, who gave the woman over two-and-a-half years in prison instead of the 30 days and probation she and her attorney's agreed to. Full Story

If child was "abused" why did parents take him back to the same person for further daycare? And why 5 years later are they suddenly coming forward with the "Poor US' attitude. Yes, it is a shame the child was hurt. And I'm sure it has been hard on the parents. But now a very good, kind hearted CHristian woman's family hs been torn apart by a judge who seems to be looking for publicity and his 15 seconds of fame. And the parents. who are so hypocritical by stating that "God helped us thru this" yet list the wifes religous views on Facebook as "agnostic". I've known Mrs. Judah for 5 years and have found her to be one of the most caring and kind individuals I've ever know. I would trust her with my grandchildren in a moment.
Yet, she is branded as some kind of monster thru the media outlets via "the victims". I hope Mrs. Judah appeals this ruling and getsa FAIR trial by a jury of her peers. SHe trusted the judicial system to adhere to the plea agreement so she could get thisevent behind her and go on being the loving wife and mother that she is. She has been CONVICTED of nothing. Just mistakenly made an example of by an over zealous judge. So Mrs. Judah sits in a jail cell while rapists, muderers. crooked politicians and other true criminals walk free after 20 minutes in a booking room. So much for fair and equal justice. Shame on the Brewingtons for rejoicing in another families suffering. I wonder how much money they will go after now? I think this is their true motivation. That and some face time on camera.

I personally know Bea Judah and I whole-heartedly support her. I am disgusted at the way the legal system has failed her. What has not been made light to the public is the fact that the Brewington's asked Bea to watch their child AFTER she'd allegedly beaten him. They then waited 3 years to press charges AND ask for money. Does anyone else see a problem here? The Brewington's said throughout this entire ordeal that they didn't want anything, but to know what happened that day. They knew Bea has 3 autistic children & they said they didn't want her to go to jail. Funny how that's changed. I have never in my life felt so much bitterness towards another person as I felt in that court room. These people are not in it for justice.

Bea plead "no contest" under the advice of her lawyer. She didn't want to put her family through the financial or emotional hardship that a trial would bring. If a jury were to get a good look at who Bea Judah is, they would not believe the Brewington's accusations.

I think it's pathetic that a judge will listen to the Brewington's spew out lies and cry their crocodile tears but will not allow one supporter of Bea's to stand & defend her. The judge didn't even attempt to question the validity of the child abuse accusations. I thought a "no contest" plea meant admission to neither guilt nor innocence.

I personally would trust my life and my children's lives with Bea Judah. She is an inspiration. She is the first person to reach out to you when you need a hand. When I hear of something like this happening to someone like Bea it is very hard to understand. But, like Bea and her husband have both shared, God is good and God will get them through this.

Sadly, these parents will never be 'happy' with any sentence. After four years, they are still so bitter and angry, I can't see this sentence satisfying them. I just hope that the legal system does not fail the Judah family again. Prayers to both families.

And people wonder why I'm such a proponent for staying home and taking care of one's own kids- especially as babies and toddlers.

Court documents show this happened in 2009, no? I'm not familiar with the case but if she in fact injured a baby and it wasn't an accident, I would agree she needed more than 30 days and probation. My condolences to the baby and family.

My bad, I see the original charge was reduced in 09. Must have been pretty bad for battery charges. Look at it this way, her court costs were only $183.00. She won't even be 60 when she gets out.

This incident happened in 2006. There was never any proof she harmed the child. There were nurses in the home at the time of the alleged "abuse" and they saw nothing while Bea was supposedly twisting a toddlers leg with enough force to break it?
There is a lot more to this story than what the reporter chose to show. I know I wouldn't return my child to a daycare provider that I was accusing of abuse.

If the Brewington's actually had Bea Judah watch their child after the alleged incident, I think the validity of their position speaks for itself. If one actually thought for a moment that their child's safety was compromised, why would they place the child in the same environment?

This woman Ms. Brewerton, wants money from the Judahs so she is money hungry. Furthermore, she took her child after the child was in a cast and asked Beatrice to watch her son after he was injured but Beatrice thought that was insane for her to ask her to watch her and refused to watch the child. This angered Ms. Brewington and she slapped the provider with a lawsuit. She looks ecstatic and crazy in the news and is smiling and laughing but God will provide justice to a woman who took a woman's 4 children away from their mother. Two of them with special needs! How can Ms. Berwerton sleep at night knowing this? She has no care and dumps her son off at day care so she can work instead of being home with her son. Obviously all she is concerned about is money

Why would the Brewers take their son in a cast to the same provider after they said he was injured by her? That does not make sense. This day care provider has 4 children in her own home and they keep asking for their mommy. Brewer gets to sleep at night in her home with her child. Beatrice is an upstanding citizen in her community, volunteers at schools and churches, counsels people, therapists know her well...and she has never had prior convictions or not even a traffic ticket. I think the parents were scared they would be accused of child abuse so they pinned it on the day care provider, an easy target. The brewerton's backgrounds will be investigated soon!

So, how/when did the leg get broke? Everyone seems to have all the details so surely someone can answer.

Funny Jennifer who is agnostic, would pray to God for a woman to not be with her 4 children. She asked Beatrice Judah to watch her son after he was injured. She looks erratic and scared that she will be charged with child abuse so she blamed the day care. She laughs nervously on camera...very suspicious. I think she was frustrated that her son is autistic and even tried to blame Bea for his autism!!!! WEIRD

No one will ever know but as erratic and nervous as Jennifer looks on camera laughing nervously, it could have been her and she blamed it on the day care provider

well i know the oldest child he is very sad and deppresed he says they all have mental problems including himself plus he always keeps his anger all bottled up for years i hate to see him release all that anger. i personally think they should of went oh our son has a broken leg it'll heal and go on and none of this would of never happened but of course they went on and wanted revenge are corrupted. i sure hope they are happy for what they have done to the children a lot of the weight is on them too they are scared, angry, sad and confused. if the family that sued or whatever can forgive the mother and go on with there lives then that shows they have a heart. my prayers to the oldest child of the judahs and all of the Judah kids.

If you take a plea, you ARE admitting wrong doing. Lawyers advice or not.....If you take a plea and your innocent..... your a jack ass!!!... and you deserve whatever you get. I would never admit to abusing a child if I didn't do it. If the snatch did it then she got what she deserved...if she didn't she shouldn't have plead no contest...
Either way,,,thank god the baby is okay

Just a little twist and jerk in a moment of frustration and she gets convicted. Must have been some pretty compelling evidence immediately after/during the day the leg broke. I would imagine they took her in immediately due to the crying. If you weren't at the trial to hear the evidence you really don't know anything. She didn't roll over as an innocent woman, get real folks. Good for the judge.

Hey, that blonde mom was too hot to lie anyways. The other one looked guilty to me and her husband looked like a good ol boy. He was there too by the way. Maybe she took a fall for him???
