NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Brooklyn woman pleaded guilty to assault on Wednesday for tricking her husband's mistress, who was pregnant, into taking an abortion pill.
Kisha Jones, 40, faces up to four years in jail for trying to forcibly abort the fetus of Monique Hunter, who was having an affair with Jones' husband Anthony in 2009, her defense attorney Barry Turner said.
Jones telephoned Hunter pretending to be calling from her doctor's office and told the woman she needed to take a pill called Cytocec. Jones faked a prescription and sent it to a local pharmacy, the attorney said.
Hunter took the pill, which induced early labor but did not trigger an abortion, he said.
The baby was born prematurely but is in good health, he said.
Jones, who is still married to her husband, also was pregnant when she learned that her husband's mistress was pregnant too, said her attorney.
"My client was crazed over this whole thing," Turner said. "Around the 27th week of her pregnancy, she basically lost it and got Monique Hunter to take an abortion pill."
She is scheduled to be sentenced February 10 in Brooklyn Criminal Court.
WOW! That's evil. I can feel her pain but come on, what the hell did the baby do?!

I don't get it...why do they always go after the mistress when they should be going after their husband?

It amazes me that they call this murder and charge the woman. Yet aborting your own isnt???
What an oxymoron.
Not really. This was a viable point in the pregnancy--in the third trimester. The fetus, while premature, was able to survive outside the uterus.
I'd love to hear what the cheating sob of a husband has to say about all of this. He has a certain responsibility, too.
