Ms. Graham had pleaded guilty, but later withdrew that plea. Nonetheless, she has been convicted of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, simple assault and child endangerment. When she heard the decision and was told that she faced a mandatory minimum of five years in prison, Ms. Graham reportedly fell to the ground in the fetal position and cried out "Oh my God, Oh my God. No, no, no."
I'm sorry, but I have no sympathy for Ms. Graham. Five years is nothing for what she did. You want to get into a fight with another adult? I don't approve of it, but it's okay -- they can defend themselves. A baby -- especially a four-week-old baby -- can't do much of anything, let alone protect itself as it's swung through the air.
Luckily, the boy recovered and will have at least a few years away from this woman to get a good start on life. If he's lucky, she won't get custody when she gets out.
