A Sumter County, Florida couple was found guilty on all charges, including 3rd degree murder, in death of toddler strangled by a Python. WOW! So a pet kills the owners kid and the owners are found guilty and Casey kills, disposes, and parties, add to that lies to the police and WHAT? NOT GUILTY! What the hell is going on over here in Florida! Something is seriously wrong when this happens.
They have been convicted in the death of the woman's 2-year-old daughter, who was strangled in her crib by a pet python in 2009.
A jury Thursday found Jaren Hare and Charles "Jason" Darnell guilty of manslaughter, third-degree murder and child neglect. They could face 35 years in jail.
Authorities said Darnell's 8-foot, 6-inch albino Burmese python wrapped itself around the head of Hare's daughter, Shaianna, on July 1, 2009.
"When the snake constricted her, it was primarily around her head," said associate medical examiner Dr. Wendy Lavezzi. "We can tell that in autopsy, because the area across her face which covers her eyes, nose, and mouth was white."
Other testimony revealed the snake had not been fed for a month before the attack. NOW THAT IS WRONG AND IS CALLED ANIMAL ABUSE!!!
Defense attorneys had argued that the toddler's death was an unpredictable accident. But prosecutors said the pair should be held accountable for failing to keep the python properly caged.
Seriously the justice system has really backfired this summer! Just last month, a judge found three teenagers accused of attacking a freshman football player at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando not guilty of battery and hazing. The judge said he believes Darrion Denson, 16 was attacked, but isn't positive who did it. Therefore, he found them Not Guilty. Denson, said he was beaten and then thrown in a trash can for walking into the varsity locker room.
