Laquasia Wright probably wants to make amends but her choice of vocation as part of her plea deal to hold a job after throwing her baby down a garbage chute has stumped onlookers.
nypost: A Brooklyn judge was baffled yesterday when a mother who dumped her newborn down a garbage chute said she is looking for work as a home health aide.
“That’s probably the least appropriate job for her,” Justice Patricia DiMango told Wright and her lawyer. “It defies logic. I don’t think it’s the best choice.”
Logic? Since when does a woman who tosses her newborn baby down a garbage chute regard logic?
Ms Wright’s situation came to light when she tried to toss her newborn down a garbage chute at a Ft Green, Brooklyn housing project. 18 at the time she has since the incident been able to obtain a plea deal which would see her on probation for 5 years and fully employed as well as earn her general equivalency degree.
Prosecutors had extended the offer cause they perceived her as someone they could save but now they’re miffed that she now thinks she can go out and save someone else. Then again maybe she’s just really trying to save herself and come to some sort of penance for her misdeeds.
