Is this woman listed as a sex offender while she is out awaiting retrial? If not, she certainly should be.

So this deranged broad gets off for now because of an incompetent former Nassau County prosecutor?

You have to be kidding me.

Nice family? What are you blaming the family for? The mother was convicted of sexually abusing her children.
The children were 18 and 15 at the time of the trial, in 2006. The actual abuse took place between 1994 and 2000. That means the children were 6 and 3 when the abuse started and 12 and 9 when the abuse was discovered.
Nice Mother! Sexually assualting a 6 and and a 3 year old, and continuing the abuse for 6 years. Good luck on those poor kids having a normal life.

What the heck is going on with all of this damn sexual abuse today? We have 60 year old cult perverts banging 13 year old girls in Texas, teachers bedding young teenage students, and now even the moms are getting into the act! Looks like all this sexual imagery and suggestion in movies, TV and music is turning loads of people into total sex fiends!

It seems to me that the appellate court and Newsday are missing the point on this case. How about writing about the incompetent prosecutors who presented the evidence in this case. The testimony of the Family Court judge was cleary inadmissible. Any first-year law student knows that. And how about a little comment on the judge who permitted the testimony from the Family Court Judge and failed to control her own trial. That's what the story should be about, no some dumb defense tactic that failed. DA Rice is ready to try the case. Hope she uses "admissible evidence this time. How about is she tries the case herself. Let's see how she will do. All we ever heard about was her great trial skills. Let's see how good she is.

Can lawyers be charged with malpractice? What an incompetent jerk. I don't question her guilt, but even a guilty person is entitled to a competent attorney.
