Jesus Take The Wheel: Lady Gets Maximum Sentence For Chopping Sexually Abusive Father’s Genitalia Off And Cooking It

- By Bossip Staff

Bridgette Harris concocted a plan and lured her sexually abusive father into a house to kill and dismember him. Bridgette was just sentenced and shown no leniency by the judge, although the jury suggested it:

A Queens judge Friday slapped Brigitte Harris with the toughest sentence possible…… for killing and dismembering her father to avenge years of sexual abuse. Supreme Court Justice Arthur Cooperman sentenced Harris to five to 15 years for the suffocation slaying of Eric Goodridge in her Rockaway apartment on July 28, 2007. Harris admitted plotting to sever her father’s penis with a scalpel by researching the case of Lorena and John Bobbitt. She wanted to prevent Goodridge, 55, from returning to his native Liberia with his granddaughters, she said.

“I never intended to kill him, and I’m sorry for his family’s loss,” she told Cooperman. Cooperman acknowledged the findings of mental health professionals who agreed Goodridge repeatedly sexually abused his daughter from age 3, but he cautioned against victims taking the law into their own hands. “Sometimes the crime itself warrants punishment,” Cooperman said.

The judge also chided jurors for giving in to sympathies for Harris in reaching a second-degree manslaughter verdict that was inconsistent with the facts. Four jurors attended Friday’s sentencing and, in letters, urged Cooperman to set Harris free so she could seek psychiatric care. Harris attorney Arthur Aidala said were it not for the jury, Harris, 29, would probably be spending the rest of her life behind bars. “They handcuffed the judge from committing an injustice,” Aidala said.

Harris told the court she cut off his penis with a scalpel and cooked the evidence after researching the John Bobbitt case and discovering organs can be reattached.

Bridgette needs help. Judge, Arthur J. Cooperman and most people don’t take into consideration the hardships African American victims suffer. If she was “right” they would have broken down her history on Nacy Grace and had all kinds of specialist explaing WHY her past fury took control of her.

    did she plead insanity?? bc cooking it is just plain crazy.i understand she should be granted leniency for dismembering him but cooking it takes it to another level.

    @ Hannibal :
    If u read properly u would c that she cooked it to prevent him from getting it reattached. He was going to take his grandchildren away and she wanted to prevent him from doing the same thing to them or someone else. Some people have no morals and that judge is one of them. Maybe behind closed doors he does the same thing and doesn’t c a problem with it.

    theres no such thing as “right” and “wrong” its all a matter of perspective and in the hands of whom ever is in power. Justice doesnt exist as it should in this world.

  • memchee

    looks like judge and jury separated the crime from the reason behind the crime.

    hard to find fault with that given that she lured him to his death and cooked his genitalia.

    all that time she took researching how to kill him, could have been spent researching how to constructively deal with her abusive past in order to have a more productive future.

    I certainly would not want to worry about her in the midst of ordinary societ.

    Its funny how people comment on a situation – have you been sexually abused since the age of three ? So if not don’t say that she should be in jail – its obvious she needs some help…and no one said anything about the father going to jail???????? – For years of sexual abuse – they should have dug his dead a@@ up and put him in jail – no d!ck and all.

    May God have mercy on her hateful soul

  • Asia

    Even though it is wrong to take the law into your own hands, I cannot imagine the emotional torment this woman had. The maximum punishment? Maybe the Judge is a Child molester himself.

  • dia

    she knew what she was doing, she researched it!

  • Redbone_Darkbutt_Black_White (It's just coochie)

    the man deserved to be punished — but this is a sick little heffa, make no mistake about it. this wasn’t spontaneous; it was “researched”, planned and executed — “pre-meditated”.

    she may not deserve 15 years — but she surely deserves punishment.

  • Redbone_Darkbutt_Black_White (It's just coochie)

    and she should have exposed that rotten bastard to punishment to the full extent of the law — merely killing him wasn’t enough (which I could truly comprehend she might do in the heat of passion), SHE HAD TO RITUALLY dismember the dude — this goes beyond revenge … way beyond revenge.

    man this is crazy….she could have fried it too.

  • Marquis de Sade

    Did she present proof that he (actually) abused her? For all we know, her idea of abuse, was her father taking away her cell phone for a week. For most black females, memories ofrevoked cell phone privileges tend to fester after a few years…Just sayin’….
