As I type, Carole Ann DeLeon is being sentenced for two charges of criminal mistreatment. The maximum sentence is six years for this charge; even if she receives this sentence, she could get out quite a bit sooner.
We received one anonymous letter in support of DeLeon, but the eligible letters we’ve received, as you can see in today’s letters, are outraged at the prosecutor for accepting such a toothless plea bargain.
Her lawyer insists that she wanted to go to court to plead her case, to tell the world about Tyler’s behavior. As if his behavior could warrant his being abused by the one person he was supposed to be able to trust.
What about justice for Tyler? He is dead. He will never grow up to fulfill his dreams, to have a family and a life of health and happiness. The system failed Tyler in his life. The system is failing him again in his death. — Susan Haight
Carole DeLeon stands not alone in her guilt; a glaring light should be shone upon CPS, which repeatedly places children in harm’s way, then feigns surprise at the results. — Dawn Shaw
The statement of “closure and resolution for many people” really means closure for Tim Rasmussen, Carl Oreskovich and Carole DeLeon, who will be able to start all over again in six short years with possibly a group of new victims! — Marla Summers
Updated: DeLeon was sentenced to six years in prison. Anybody surprised?
