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.

Also.. site is down. I will research more on what happened at trial. 


Quoting Rosie321:

Please go to babyalissacries4justice.org for more information. Double jeopardy does not apply to this case. She was never charged for murder. Murder was not even an option for the jury. She still can be charged.

Only if she were charged with neglect again using the same evidence. They would need to charge her with murder.


Quoting crabtreemommy:

Re-trial is double jeopardy and it wont happen.  This whole situation makes me sad.

I didnt know she wasnt tried for murder... until the OP told me.  All I know is that she had a plea deal that got her 10 years that turned into 77 days.
