27- Year-Old College Student to be Resentenced for Abandoning Newborn in Trash Bag
27-year-old Emile Weaver who was previously sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for abandoning her newborn daughter Addison Grace Weaver in a trash bag next to a sorority house in Muskingum University gets another chance at freedom.
Justices on the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled on Thursday that Muskingum County Common Pleas Judge Mark Fleegle showed that he made up his mind about her punishment and they want another judge to resentence her. This only means that Weaver get a chance at getting a lower sentence of 20 years.
The Death of An Innocent Child
On April 22, 2015 two sorority sisters found Addison dead at the university in New Concord, Ohio. The defendant claim to have delivered the child in the toilet in a sorority house. According to a published post by lawandcrime, Weaver was sentenced to life in prison without parole as Fleegle found that she lacked remorse for the course of event which happened, hurt her sorority sisters, and was confirmed to have performed the worst form of aggravated murder.
With this, Weaver’s mother-daughter relationship with Addison was taken into consideration by the court. Evidence was reportedly cited by the judge which states that she texted the man she wrongly presumed to be Addison’s father, “No more baby”, and “taken care of”.
