Father sentenced to 2 years for feeding baby daughter bleach in her formula

He was only trying to help his baby breathe… right. No one is that stupid and if they are, they should never be a parent. Thank goodness the mother heard her crying and ran out and patted the baby on the back, who then threw up. Mom could smell the bleach. The mother ran the child to the hospital, where she was treated and was okay. The father got 2 years on a no contest plea for a third-degree felony count of cruelty toward a child – abuse without great bodily harm – if he had not cut a deal, I think a jury would have thrown the book at him for trying to murder the child. Criminal stupidity does not play well in court especially when children are involved.

From MyFoxOrlando.com:

OCALA, Fla. (AP) – A 22-year-old man who poured bleach into his daughter’s formula has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Carron Washington pleaded no contest to a charge of cruelty to a child for the February 2013 incident. He accepted a plea deal from the State Attorney’s Office with a credit for 134 days served.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports Washington said he was trying a home remedy to help her breath better. He says he poured less than a capful into two ounces of formula.

Officials say Therese Roberts awoke to 2-month-old Cadlynn’s cries and found Washington feeding her a bottle. She took the girl and patted her back. When the baby vomited, she smelled bleach. Police became involved when hospital officials contacted them about the suspicious condition of the baby.

He said it was the dumbest decision he ever made in his life. Ya think? I still think it was not a stupid mistake. The little one has had trouble breathing since birth and I think that he thought he could get away with killing her and making it look like an act of nature. He poured about a capful of bleach into two ounces of formula and fed it to the baby. He got off far too lightly. He should never, ever be allowed to have or be around children again. What an evil, cruel thing to do to a 2 month-old, helpless little baby. What a monster.
