Please read baby Alissa's story and help me get a re-trial for her birthday.

Posted by   + Show Post
Baby Alissa was given up by her birth mom Kelli to Kelli's cousin Christy Shaffer. Who in just three months managed to break Alissa's arm, shove something so hard into Alissa's mouth it left a gaping wound in it, rip out Alissa's hair, beat her and finally managed to wack her upside the head killing her. Christy was charged merely with neglect and served only 77 days in jail because her father has connections. I as a mother of two beautiful children cannot stand by and let this happen. On November 2nd of this year, Alissa would be 5 years old. My gift to her is to try and help Bernice Bucaffari get all the signatures she needs get this re-trial. Every single day until we get all the signatures needed and then some, i will be posting Alissa's page and petition. This is my way of fighting for her. Please share this for at least one day. And if you are affected by it the way i am, please write a letter insisting that this case be re-opened and Christy Shaffer be charged accordingly for MURDER.

it's still a waste of resources, especially if she's found not guilty. putting her in jail again won't bring Alissa back. the best thing to do is raise awareness so something like this won't happen again.

Quoting MasterGagesMom:

Emma, that's not entirely true...since she was only ever charged with neglect they can draw up any charges they want, double jeopardy would only apply if she'd been tried and found innocent of murder.

You're right...it won't bring her back but it will certainly bring justice for this little girl. prevent the bitch from doing it to another child and put her where she belongs. there is already all kinds of awareness, people that are cruel and or sick in head just don't give a damn.
