No Jail Time?!?
Troy Dean, of Lafayette, IN has plead guilty of abusing is infant son; and will serve NO jail time.
Dean will spend 6 years on supervised probation; Dean will serve 312 hours of community service and spend 2 years residing in his parents’ home in Grand Rapids Michigan. Dean and his wife and two children are currently living with his parents.
He plead guilty to neglect of a dependent causing serious bodily injury; he alleges he was sleep deprived when he violently shook the 4 month-old infant causing permanent brain damage. Both parents of the infant have testified that Dean has learened to provide care of his now brain damaged son, as well as physical therapy.
The judge told Dean, “Punishment this court could give will never be like the punishment you’ll have every morning when you wake up and see that little boy. There’s nothing I can do to punish you more than that.”
The judge was floored at the lack of emotion from both Troy Dean and his wife during their testimony.
Troy Dean’s wife, Amy, had the audacity to tell the judge: “To get through something like that, I wouldn’t be able to talk. If I started to cry, I would never be able to stop. I’ve never shown emotion in public and it appears cold, but I promise there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t cry about my son,” she said.
So the baby will now never have the opportunity for the life he was born to live… a travesty!
