20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

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.

Oh no! There must be more than one petition bc I read that there only needed to be 3,000 more. :(

Quoting Rosie321:

Yes the one I just mentioned is the latest. The older one apparently was not going anywhere. I hope this doesn't discourage you. Please use the new one and share. Spread it like wildfire. Thank you so much for your support. Us mommies have to stick together and become loud to show everyone that we are not tolerating this anymore

Unfortunately nothing will come of this. To expect a retrial is to expect double jeopardy... She was only convicted of neglect, but he had to have a trial with a jury for that. I'm sorry, but there is nothing we can do... And making her the next Casey Anthony won't make a lick of difference.

If that baby were a family member of mine, that piece of shit bitch would be running from a lynch mob!

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.
