Sitter Gets 13 Years In 3YO’s Death

A baby sitter who pushed a 3-year-old Post Falls boy, resulting in a fatal head injury, will spend at least four years in prison. Amanda L. Skogen, 26, was sentenced to 13 years in prison with eligibility for parole after four during an emotional haring today in Kootenai County District Court. Skogen was on her knees when she violently shoved Cohen Johnson on Oct. 4, causing him to fall back and hit his head. She confessed to shoving the boy after he wet his pants, telling police: “I hurt a poor little defenseless boy … And it was all my fault”/Meghann Cuniff, SR. More here.

Question: Are you happy with the sentence?
