Omaha Teen Dodges Jail Time After Tossing Newborn To Her Death
One Omaha teen just caught a super lucky break this week, after a judge decided that she didn’t deserve jail for killing her own newborn, according to Omaha World Herald. Instead, the Juvenile Court Judge Christopher Kelly ordered Antonia Lopez to be placed on probation, live in a group home, take part in individual and family therapy, delete her Facebook account and perform 50 hours of community service.
Back in September, the 16-year-old gave birth to a baby girl in her apartment then tossed the baby out the window. She then reportedly texted her boyfriend on snapchat, “It was a girl by the way,” and admitted her crime to her mother. Her mom tried to save the baby, by calling 911, and performing CPR. Unfortunately, she had already suffered blunt-force injuries, according to a reported autopsy.
Lopez’s was only 26 weeks along when she gave birth, making her baby she tossed premature. She told police that she was unaware that she was pregnant and thought she was just having her period. SMH.
