I have never been an advocate for the death penalty, and although this child was not murdered, I would not shed a tear or feel an ounce of compassion for these two women, or for this child’s rapists, if they all got the death penalty. These women are monsters, and are just as much monsters as the men who raped the boy.
“OKLAHOMA CITY — Two women have been arrested for their parts in allegedly obtaining meth by trading a toddler for sex with two men.
Jennifer Ragland, also known as Jennifer Chapman, was arrested Thursday by Oklahoma City police and is being accused of allowing two men to rape a three-year-old boy in exchange for drugs.”
“Leana Lauck, the boy’s mother, was arrested a day earlier on child neglect charges. Police say her 3-year-old son was severely abused at the LaQuinta Inn near South Meridian and Interstate 40.
The probable cause affidavit for Lauck’s arrest claims she knew her son was injured but decided to spend the night at this hotel smoking meth and waited nearly a day before bringing the toddler to the hospital.
Police collected evidence from the LaQuinta Inn after the toddler was taken to Children’s Hospital.
Police said the child had numerous bruises and an injury on the base of his skull.
A family member said the boy had lye burns on his throat, face and eyes, signs of sexual abuse, bleach poisoning, and at one point, was hanging from a ceiling with a dog collar.”
It is also being reported that the boy had a torn rectum and suffered 18 hours before his “mother” took him to the hospital.
The two women are being charged with “child neglect.” What???? How about 1st degree child sexual abuse, kidnapping, torture, accessory to rape, rape, child endangerment, reckless abandonment, human trafficking, and attempted murder???
