Supreme Court affirms conviction of Baby Brianna's mother

There are 16 comments on the Las Cruces Sun-News story from Jun 21, 2007, titled Supreme Court affirms conviction of Baby Brianna's mother. In it, Las Cruces Sun-News reports that:

“I am not persuaded that the statements from mother's co-defendants relating to the events of the night of the child's death did not contribute to mother's conviction for negligently permitting child abuse resulting in death or great bodily harm.”

The state's highest court has reinstated the child abuse convictions of a Las Cruces mother in the 2002 death of her daughter, Brianna Lopez. via Las Cruces Sun-News

i knew this women she was always drunk and high on drugs or passed out on the couch she had one daughter her name im not going to reveal but when she didnt listen to what her mother would say she would bite her on the arm, stomach, or hand she had always been a rude mother and i for one am happy shes in jail i never met poor baby brianna but it is a sad story to here. Well justice has not yet been served in my mind all three of them , the mother, the uncle, and the father, should all be sentenced to death for what they did to the poor baby girl. they arent supposed to harm her they were supposed to love her and cherish the presciouse gift that god bestowed on them in the form of baby brianna. May her soul rest in peace.

I was shocked when I read this story, my eyes filled up with tears,could not believe what these animals did to this poor baby, I felt pain. They should of gave them the death sentence because thats what they deserve. God forgive me for saying this, but I hope you all ROTT IN HELL,and everyday that you spend in prison hope is miserable YOU DAMM ANIMALS. When I think of these people so much anger builds inside of me, then I think that BABY BRIANNA is in heaven with god and she is no longer suffering.

Love You My

I saw this story on KOAT Action 7 news last night and I have not been able to stop thinking about this poor baby ever since. How on earth could someone do this to any living thing much less a child. They talked a lot about sending a message to others with the sentences that these animals received. I'm sorry but the only way to send a message to creeps like this is to take them and do the same things to them that were done to this poor child. They should be made to know how it feels. The grandmother and the other uncle who knew this was going on and did nothing should be beat. How can you live with yourself knowing the torture this child was enduring and you did nothing! I honestly hope that these people are plagued with nightmares of what they did and what they knew was going on and I hope that they never rest well again.

I have been deeply affected by this. I feel sick to the stomach. I believe people should apply for a licence to have children, once over you had to have one to keep a dog. It seems any moron can have a child?. These monsters should be snuffed out, they are beyond help. I'm a firm believer in what goes around comes around I hope these animals rot in hell.

JUSTICE will never be done in this case. There is no possible way that justice can really occur for such heinous crimes. Those found guilty should have to spend the rest of their worthless lives in solitary hard-labor confinement. The death penalty would be too soft a punishment.

Absolutely NOT!! Death is far, far too soft a punishment for these despicable "people." In fact, to call them people is an abuse of language.

Death allows them to escape forever their evil deeds, so I prefer that they be suffer life in solitary confinement.

I have cried everyday for this poor angel since the first time I read her tragic story. I don't understand how anybody could do this to something so innocent. I look at my kids and I just cringe feel sick and angered thinking about putting my hands or somebody else putting their hands on them. They deserves to be tortured until they beg for death but be denied death for in death u r free. They need to suffer every waking moment of their pathetic lives. I would've been 15 at that time but I would've taken her. I would've given up my childhood for her. And I know then and now my dad would've let me take her in a heartbeat cuz I know for a fact my dad would've killed me if I didn't do something to stop it. Even tho I can't make it legal I have adopted baby Brianna. I love her and may she be more happy than and loved
