Moronic Mommies… Monday/Thursday.

Posted on by 16 comments

Ok so I am late getting this up this week, I wasn’t feeling well all weekend and first part of the week, but I am feeling better now so I’m back to business.

Mom leaves baby behind at Florida Wal-Mart after botched theft

Starting us off this week we have Allison Niemeyer (19). Allison, her sister Laura (22) and Allison’s son (1) went for a little shopping trip to Wal-Mart.  This particular shopping trip resulted in stealing and child abandonment.  Mothering at it’s finest!

The two women were spotted stuffing items into the baby’s diaper bag by security and were confronted when leaving the store.  Allison took off immediately, ditching her sister and son.  Laura then broke free and took off; both hopped into a waiting van and fled the scene, leaving behind Allison’s son.  I suppose someone needed to take the wrap.

A tip lead police to the vehicle and the sisters were arrested.

Laura, the aunt, was charged with felony child neglect, retail theft and resisting a merchant.  If convicted this will be her 4th conviction for retail theft and grand theft.

Allison was charged with felony child neglect, retail theft and violating probation.  Allison is on house arrest until 2021 for her involvement in home invasion robbery with a firearm that occurred in 2010, while she was pregnant.

Allison’s son was placed with Florida Department of Children and Families.

Cannabis smoking mother (24) jailed for leaving baby to drown in bath  

Danielle Reeves (24), was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced 45 months in jail for the death of her son Frankie Joe, whose life-less body was found in the bathtub in September of 2011.

Reeves, described as a foul-mouthed, binge-drinking, cannabis smoker, put her two sons Alfie (3) and Frankie Joe in the bathtub and started the water running.  She then proceeded to take her drunken ass outside and chatted it up with neighbors for approximately 45 minutes. Bragging to neighbors she was “so drunk from Vodka.”

By the time she decided to check on her boys, she found a life-less Frankie Joe and an overflowing bathtub.

In a drunken rage, she blamed everyone including her son Alfie for the tragedy.  She lied to paramedics and emergency staff about what had happened.

Frankie Joe died at the hospital four days later and one day after his first birthday.

Toddler dies of methadone overdose, mother charged

On June 25th Newton County Sheriff’s responded to a call of an unresponsive toddler, the 22-month-old had been put down for a nap at 4pm the afternoon before and was not breathing when his mother checked on him at 10 am the following morning.  I don’t know about anyone else’s children but my kids, even sick, have never slept 18 hours straight.  Shouldn’t this baby have been checked on LONG before 10 am?

His mother Elizabeth Farnam (33) was arrested on July 19th and charged with 2nd degree murder, after toxicology reports showed her son, Logan Crow, had died of a methadone overdose.

Court documents show that Elizabeth admitted to obtaining the methadone illegally for her own use and dropping a pill while holding Logan on her lap at a church meeting.  She said she noticed Logan sweating profusely and losing his balance, so she took him home and put him to bed and did not check on him for 18 hours.

According to police she was aware Logan had taken something, he could hardly navigate and was very sleepy, but she did not seek help.  Doctors said had Logan been taken to the E.R. and treated his life could have been saved.

Logan had 15 to 19 milligrams of methadone in his system; doctors typically prescribe 3 to 5 milligrams to an adult.  WTF!

R.I.P. Logan

Woman charged with 9th OWI   

Rounding out this week’s batch of Moronic Mommies is Evelynn M. Brown (28).

A man made a call to Milwaukee Police at approximately 10:57 pm to report a woman driving erratically.  He stated she had veered out of her lane, struck the median, drove across some grass, then veered across all four lanes and hit some construction barrels.

When police arrived the found a man assisting a woman, Brown, he said had side swiped his car. He told them after they stopped he noticed she was drunk and had a small child in the car.  The man removed her from the car and pulled it off the road.

Brown was crying, talking incoherently and reeked of alcohol, but police were able to determine the small child in the car with her was her 11-month-old daughter.

Brown was arrested for drunk driving and taken for a blood test.

Brown has a history of DUI, this is her ninth arrest.

Seizures Led To Broken 10-Day-Old

Mother charged with injuring 10-day-old son  

Mother charged with felony neglect for injuries of 10-day-old son 

Ok so I think this will be my last post for the day, these stories are hard enough to research and write when you feel good, but when your brain feels like it is splitting in two they are all the more difficult to read and/or write.  So let’s get to it.

On Monday, January 30th, the beauty you see above 30-year-old Jennifer Ann Pickar appeared in court facing charges of injuring her 10-day-old son.  Wait she’s only 30??  Shit, I’m going to be 39 in a few weeks and ….never mind, let me get back on topic.

On New Year’s Day Pickar and her baby daddy went to the hospital seeking treatment for Pickar’s tremors.  A very alert nurse, while tending to mommy, noticed that brand new baby was sporting TWO black eyes.   Yes, you read that right, the baby all of 10-effing days-old was sporting not one, but two black eyes.  The nurse suggested the family take the baby to Children’s Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota.

The baby was examined at the hospital and found to not only have two effing black eyes, but bruising of the left ear, fractures of the bones around his eyes and bleeding in the front and back of his brain.  Fuck me; he’s only 10-fucking days-old!  He was immediately transported to another hospital where his condition worsened and he underwent surgery.

So I am clear the baby has been in intensive care since New Years day and as of January 30th his condition is still unclear.  He is expected to have “significant deficits.”  According to the treating doctors, he would not have survived without medical care.  His injuries are consistent with “significant” or “multiple” impacts to the face.  He also appeared to have been pinched.  For fuck’s sake…where do these monsters come from?

No worries though Pickar has a plethora of excuses for her baby’s injuries.  First, she woke up to her son crying in her armpit on January 1st.  She said she must have had a seizure during the night and hit herself and the baby on the crib next to the bed.  Creative Jen, but no cigar.  Later her mother would tell police she claimed to have had a seizure while holding the baby and dropped him.  Lastly, she rolled on the baby while having a seizure.

Let’s not forget she was not at the hospital seeking treatment for her son, she was there seeking treatment for her tremors.  What’s worse is her husband found her trembling when he arrived home from a night shift, seen his baby with two black eyes and he too only sought treatment for his wife.  Let’s also not forget this a 10-day-old baby… 10 DAYS and neither of them showed any concern for the two black eyes.

Pickar has a criminal history:

–        2011 – felony assault and two counts of misdemeanor assault

–        2008 – felony theft and drug possession

For the injuries on her son she is charged with felony child neglect and endangerment.  Her bond has been set at $20,000 or $10,000 with conditions…um, excuse me is this some kind of joke.  That’s nothing!  Each of the charges for the baby’s injuries carries a sentence of 5 years.  That is utter bull shit; she’ll be out before he’s old enough for first grade, provided he survives.  Travesty!

 

 

“I don’t want obese children.”

 

Mr. and Mrs. Sultze

Parents allegedly starve baby because of obesity 

Couple accused of starving their child 

Meet Christopher and Mary Sultze, they have found their way to the pages of BB today because they stand accused of starving their baby to prevent her from becoming obese.  Um, Ok!

Their daughter who weighed nearly eight pounds when she was born in July 2010,  at 14-months had only gained five pounds.  The Sultzes were frustrated with the doctors repeated advice to feed the baby more.  Mr. Sultze told them the family maintained a “very low cholesterol diet” and “he doesn’t want obese children.”

Doctors finally convinced them to admit their daughter to the hospital in August and in two days she had gained eight ounces.  According to the doctors the baby was “essentially starving.”  Good Gawd… people feed the baby for shit’s sake!

The baby has been removed and placed in foster care.

Mr. and Mrs. Sultze have both been charged felony child neglect, face up to one year in prison and $25,000 fine if convicted.  Both were released on bond and ordered to stay away from their daughter.

Toddler watches as mother shoots up.

 

Courtney Leigh Hardy

Woman jailed after found  with syringe in her arm and child in car

Police catch Mom shooting up with daughter in car 

On Wednesday, November 9th, a Police officer at a gas station in Huntington, OH spotted a woman in her vehicle with the engine running.  The officer, thinking something didn’t look right, approached the vehicle. Inside the vehicle he would find 21-year-old Courtney Leigh Hardy, drifting in and out of consciousness with her arm tied off and a syringe still in it, in the passenger seat her 2-year-old daughter.  Nice!

Hardy was arrested and charged with felony child neglect and misdemeanor driving under the influence with a minor in the vehicle. Her bond was set at $30,000.00.

Her daughter was placed in the custody of CPS.

 

Can you take my kids to the park?

Yovanda Bennafield

Sons kidnapped, mom charged

Mother charged after sons abducted

On Sunday, June 5th Sommer Pannell (26) walked into a gas station asking the clerk there Yovanda Bennafield to use the phone, stating she needed a ride to North Carolina.  Yovanda, offered her a ride after her shift on one condition… she baby-sit her children, ages 6 and 5, until she was off work.  Did I mention they were complete strangers? No, yeah the two had literally met right then.

Pannell agreed and Yovanda handed her the keys to her car, where she had left her two boys, and asked that she take the kids to the park.  Yes, she not only left her two small children alone in a car for who knows how long while she worked, she also handed them off to complete stranger and allowed her to take the car and the kids.  No danger there, of course this complete stranger will return with your car and children safely, right.  Wrong!

Pannell, not wanting to wait for her new BFF to get off work, took the kids to the park, alright… a parking lot in North Carolina!  Well… Yovanda, how’d that new sitter thing work out for you?

After issuing an Amber Alert for the two boys, police would locate them in their mother’s  car, in a church parking lot in North Carolina.  Both boys were unharmed.  I’d say mom got pretty lucky on that note… I mean seriously who in this day and age just hands their kids off to complete stranger on their word, the kids will be safe.

Anyhow, Yovanda has been charged with two counts of felony child neglect and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  Pannell has been charged with two counts of abduction and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The boys have been placed in the care of a relative.

Considering the stories we read here daily, this one has a happy ending.  It’s obvious the potential for this to have turned out far worse was definitely there.  No dead babies!

Burd dropped the baby…

Injured toddler case certified

Before I jump into this story with both feet, I have to get this out of the way.  The mother in this story, Carrie Woods, is 23 years old, has four children, and knowingly allowed a registered sex offender (14 years her senior) not only into the lives of her children, but had the piece of shit living under the same roof.  If that isn’t a recipe for disaster, I don’t know what is.

In September, a 911 call was made to report a child in distress.  Medics met the mother (Woods) near her home and rushed 15-month-old Ryan Schutt to the hospital for medical attention.  It was determined that the toddler was possibly suffering from shaken baby syndrome and was not expected to live.  Little Ryan’s injuries where extensive, including a skull fracture, bleeding in the brain, two black eyes, bruising and scratching all over his tiny body and he recently suffered a broken arm.

Of course Woods, wanting to protect her vagina plug, gave several excuses for little Ryan’s injuries.  She ran the usual gamut – aggressive puppy, jealous 3-year-old, fall from the crib – you know them all because we see them every day.  I guess she wasn’t anticipating that those pesky medical professional have ways of detecting bullshit.  They believed that the boy’s injuries were too severe to have been caused by any of the things that Mommy Dearest was claiming.

A fellow inmate of the vagina plug, William Burd III (35), is acting as a witness against the baby beating douchetard.  He claims that Burd and Woods had themselves a drug-a-thon the night of little Ryan’s “accident”.  The witness  told investigators that the pair were high on methamphetamines, Oxycontin and Vicodin when the toddler wouldn’t stop crying. Burd took it upon himself to “tend” to the child – dropping him and hitting his head on a table, before returning him to his crib and heading back to the pharmaceutical festivity.  I’m thinking that there was a little more that dropping and head hitting to cause the injuries that Ryan had.  Then again, I’m not a medical professional.

Woods and Burd are both being charged with felony child abuse and felony child neglect.  Little Ryan is recovering and is in foster care.  I hope he fully recovers and that he never has to see these two worthless sack of shit again.
