YIPEE!!! Karma at last!

He should have been convicted on all 6 counts. He absolutely kicked her. Samanthas' reaction to the social worker after Haleigh was hospitalized proves it. She would not have been hysterically crying to the point that the GAL had to stop the questioning if she didn't see it. It is the MO of an abuser or pedophile to intimidate the victims so they are not found out. She too lived in fear on a daily basis and only when she no longer lived with these monsters felt safe to speak the truth.

I pray he gets the MAXIMUM allowable sentence and never sees another child again!

i just want to say that i agree with the guilty verdict because someone had to pay for the abuse of this child. the step mom is dead so the one left was the step father and he needs to get what is coming becasue that is a innocent child. now she will be brain dead for the rest of her life. i strongly agree that strictland gets them 40 years it will serve him right. he will never again abuse of another child. he is to blame too for not saying nothing, who knows he must of played his part too.

I do not think you are too smart yourself. You need help for picking on someone who cares.

I am so happy the jury found Jason guilty, anyone that causes such harm to a child or even witnesses it and doesn't do anything about it deserves the maximum punishment. I still don't understand why the babysitter hasn't been charged with anything yet either.
Now hopefully Haleigh can regain her strength and get better. Our prayers are with you Haleigh!

does anyone realize that the blame for all of this falls on allison for having this child taken away from her by dss for sexual assault by allisons boyfriend at the time. i found it disgusting that she cries about her poor daughter when she was the one who started this childs problems many years ago. Maybe if she had been a better parent and taken care of her then she would not be dealing with this now.

keeper1 you hit the nail right on the head. What a crock of ****, the poor birth mother is now trying to see the daughter she didn't want a thing to do with for years. Allison should also be charged because she, with her actions put this child in the abusive situation.

It escapes me as to why this comment is still posted for all to see. I try very hard to have faith and hope, then i read something like this....one has to wonder. However, I am saving my positive energy, thoughts, and prayers for Haleigh's well being and recovery. She may never know how many of us are thinking of her, but maybe somehow she will feel it and begin to heal. God bless that sweet little girl and all who are doing all they can to help her.
