EXCUSE ME..??? Egregiously Excessive?? Is Kronenberg out of his mind? Cohen should NOT be released on bail or bond. He should be held pending trial and with the hopes that the investigation was complete and accurate, be sent to prison for the rest of his life...It would be an ergeious error of the justice system if he were found guilty and not sentenced to a life term.

This is from a bulliten from the myspace page that Alicia set up for Evelynn. I think we all need to write to this judge. There is NO WAY this guy should get any less then the max sentence. That poor baby will have to deal with problems for the rest of her life.
This is from Evelynn's mommy:
Please everyone write to this judge James Hudson. This guy needs to know the reality of what is happening in the world. My daughter was INNOCENT. All she wanted to do was eat!!!!!!!!!! In joshua's words he told the DA "I was pissed off and kicked her in the head FIVE times" NOT ONCE NOT TWICE BUT FIVE TIMES MY DAUGHTER TOOK KICKS TO THE HEAD!!!!!!!! The cohen's must be so proud of Joshua for almost killing Evelynn who was just 10 weeks old. REAL PROUD ARENT YOU??? 14 of his family members attended the arraignment telling the court that Evelynn is doing well and Joshua is a family oriented guy. So family oriented that he almost KILLED his daughter. And as for Evelynn my baby girl hasnt been able to see me in THREE WEEKS AND A DAY!!!!!!! Please everyone i need you for this.

i feel that he desires that much time in jail for hurting that innocent baby girl and people that do that shit desire time in jail but most of them just get let go and it is pretty sad that happens and people have to be sick to hurt their babies and kids

He argued that Cohen has no criminal record and that he has a "very, very strong family base," taking note of his 14 relatives who attended the hearing.
??????????
He kicked this baby and shook her violently, she suffers daily missing our on the things the a baby not abused would be enjoying.. And he is asking for a bail reduction??
He so does NOT deserve to be out on bond.. I understand he is young, was probably stressed etc.. but there is NO excuse what so ever for what he did to that baby!! His own flesh and blood!!!!!!!!
May he rot in prison for what he has done to that innocent little angel!!!!!

I hope he gets anally raped repeatedly in jail for abusing an innocent child. He should face life in prison not a max of 25 years...Evelyn will have a life of problems due to her fathers abuse...rot in hell scumbag.

HELLO...who cares what kind of family support he has or who wants to put up there house to get him out, it dont excuse what he did to that precious baby girl. He is where he belongs, he is a peice of shit who dont deserve to have freedom. And as for not knowing what her outcome is, why does that matter....what he did was wrong. If someone jumped his ass out on the street and messed him up i bet his family would be the first to say put his ass in jail. It dont matter if she got a tiny scratch or major problems, the person who is should protect her is the one who caused it..YOU DONT KICK A BABY IN THE HEAD..If he has such a good family, why are you supporting someone who should be dead, he dont deserve to live...

Bail? Why should that pig be allowed any bail? He should never be allowed to see the light of day...his daughter can't. What is the world coming to when someone can ATTACK, and try to kill a 10 week old infant, and EVER be let out of prison? This disgusts me!

Let him rot in jail! If I were a family member, I wouldn't even be in the court room, let alone putting my property on the line for such a piece of garbage that would kick an infant in the head.

How could a man so I violently hurt his daughter and his family act like nothin is wrong! There supporting the wrong side! That baby was the sweet and innocent one in this not him! This is really sad.That baby may be home from the hospital but she has a very long recovery...she may never get to see again!She may have alot of other permanent things wrong with her! I wish you show mercy to that poor baby and punish him to the full extent of the law. Thats not to much to ask after the hell she has been through...she's only 3 months old!Bless her little heart!!!

If this judge has any sense in head. He will not lower the amount of bond for this jerk. No real father would ever do this to a helpless child. He deserves punishment to the FULLEST. I hope like alot of other people out there that he rots for what he has done.

I dont think this kid should get out! This little girl didnt have a chance to get away from him as he was kicking her. He needs to serve many years in the big housr so the convicts can treat him as he did his daughter!

I don't see how the baby is doing well now. How can she? She has damages that will be with her, her whole life. I am talking about eyes and they know what damaged has beed done to her brain. So-----give me a break. The bail is not high enough, and I can't believe his family not looking at what he did to a member of their family.
