Colorado Mom Sentenced 38 Years For Beating Accused Sex Predator To Death
What the hell???
A Colorado woman was sentenced Friday to 38 years in prison for beating a man to death with a baseball bat.
Forsythia Owen, 32, was convicted of second-degree murder in the September 2013 death of Denzel Rainey, 42.
Owen told Englewood Police that she attacked Rainey with a Louisville Slugger as he slept in an alley, claiming her 4-year-old daughter said the man had touched and sexually abused her, according to NOLA.com. Authorities concluded that the woman’s accusations were unfounded, and she had no evidence to support them.
Rainey suffered a fractured skull, a broken left arm, six broken ribs, a laceration to the liver and a left testicle hemorrhage in the attack, according to CBS Denver. He later died at a hospital.
“Rainey was not guilty of any of those acts,” state Judge Marilyn Leonard Antrim said in court, according to the Denver Post. “His memory should not be tarnished.”
Owen, who prosecutors said had been drinking and smoking marijuana the night of the attack, refused her friends’ pleas to call police and instead took matters into her own hands.
Now her daughter has be sexually assaulted AND has no mother. Great job lady.
